In this episode, Lori and Heather discuss how to foster the qualities of self-control and patience in ourselves and in our kids. Lori offers three ways moms can encourage the development of self-control and patience in their children and in themselves.

They also take a close look at the life of our Biblical hero, Joseph, found in Genesis 37-50. God nurtured the qualities of self-control and patience in Joseph as Joseph served as a slave for eleven years and was a prisoner for two years. These two characteristics needed to be developed in Joseph, so he was ready to fulfill the purpose God had for Egypt and Joseph’s family.

As moms, we realize it takes time to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit. We can partner with God to develop these traits in ourselves and in our kids.
