Guest: Jill Savage
On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson is joined by author and speaker Jill Savage, who shares insights from her book, Real Moms…Real Jesus: Meet the Friend Who Understands. Together they discuss Jill’s fundamental precept—that Jesus can be a relatable, identifiable source of strength in every busy mom’s life. Between nursing your infant to having your toddler mistake you for a jungle gym, it’s normal to long for some personal space. For Jesus in His ministry, the pressure from the crowd became equally overwhelming. Similar to the need to establish boundaries to ensure some down time, Jesus stepped away from ministry to be alone and pray.
Many Christians view Jesus as being completely God, but sometimes forget that He was also human. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jill Savage shares why every mom can take comfort in the assurance that Jesus understands their exhaustion, disappointment, and vulnerabilities. Similar to how a mom has her sleep interrupted because her child is sick, when the disciples were startled by a great storm at sea, they woke Jesus after He had an exhausting day of ministry. Jill also explains to Dr. Dobson the need for people to define themselves by who Christ is, not what they may see or receive in other people. It’s also necessary for a mom to have a supportive and caring husband.
