Beloved Mess – HIRL Episode 109

Free homeschool podcast interview with Kimm Crandall, author of the book Beloved MessTired of trying to make your family seem as if you’ve got it all together? Exhausted by external standards that seem unreachable or even crushing? 

The Christian life is not about being less of a mess. It’s about admitting that we need to be saved from trying to clean ourselves up. Guest Kimm Crandall frees you to live with the assurance that God loves you right here, right now. He’s not waiting for you to clean up your act before you’re worthy to come to him. In fact, he wants you to stop trying to fix the mess and allow him to wash it away.

Beloved Mess is an episode that is both thoughtful and healing to our weary, worn out souls.

Christ in the Chaos – HIRL Episode 34

HIRL-Episode-34Kimm Crandall was the perfect homeschooling mom: she had her curriculum chosen carefully, her children lined up quietly and obediently in the church pew, and her home-ground wheat bread delivered piping hot from her oven.

She was doing everything “right”. Still, God seemed angry with her, and she felt as if nothing she did would make Him happy with her. As she polished up the outside, she was dying slowly on the inside, bound up by her own good works and suffocating under the lack of grace within the homeschooling community she was a part of.

It’s an important and tender interview, peppered with humor and self-effacing realism. But the beautiful truth here is that Kimm boldly and bravely points us back to the Jesus, the only One who redeems every mess, every moment, and every bit of chaos.
