Mariana Yepes is a married mother of two children under 5 years old. Originally from Colombia, she comes from a Catholic background but is the first in her immediate family to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. A driven, career woman and high achiever, Mariana never believed that it would take her 7 years to conceive. After she and her husband were finally blessed with two children in 18 months, she was even more surprised to find that she was not only compelled to become a stay-at-home mother but is also contemplating home-schooling long-term.
In part 2 of this episode, Mariana and I discuss how, in our exuberance of new faith, we pray bold prayers and make big promises to God. And then, as we become mothers, we realise the length and breadth of all we hold back from the Lord. We discuss how moralising to our children reveals our unconscious hypocrisy even further as they see all that we do and say. Even so, the great patience and love of our Lord is made evident as He walks through it all with us, gently helping us to learn and grow.
