Identity in Christ


When you walk into a room – do you quickly name drop your career or company, your book name, your kids sport, your school?

I do. I am guilty.

I have spent so many years battling my identity.

I KNOW my most secure and safest place to root my identity is in CHRIST – so I why do I continue to place my assurance in things that are fleeting?

I asked Jeannie Cunnion, author of Parenting the Wholehearted Child, to join me for a conversation on this topic. She is a dear friend and one of my very favorite writers on the topic of grace in parenting.

Enjoy and please …. be patient. This was CLEARLY our first attempt at a Google hangout. We are in no mood to start anything – a podcast, periscope, etc. We THOUGHT this was the easiest way to record a conversation. But we are clearly challenged by technology.

We will discuss:

  • Importance of mentors
  • Your identity in Christ
  • Parenting your kids so their identity is in Christ
  • Blog post mentioned – There You Are by House of Hendrix

NOTE: It was live – but this is the taped version now on YouTube.

Connect with Jeannie here.

  1. This is such an important topic that sadly, most Christians that I know of, are completely unaware of! I was in the dark about this topic until I was 30 years old and I was raised in a minister’s home!

    My favorite books about our identity in Christ (both by Dr. Neil Anderson) are:
    – Victory Over the Darkness: Realize the Power of Your Identity in Christ
    – The Bondage Breaker

  2. I just got to watch this. So cute! Thanks for being real, laughing at yourselves, and sharing this important topic and encouragement.

  3. Thank you ladies I have been struggling with this topic since I took a job in food service after leaving the medical field. Always inspired by you!!! Love your friendship and bond.
