#174 Living a Life of Surrender with Lisa Bonnema
Show Notes

My friend, writer and speaker Lisa Bonnema, describes herself as woman who needed to feel control of motherhood.

She micro-managed her children in order to feel good about their safety and care, and yes, it was exhausting.

But when she found out that a neural defect had been detected in her third child at her 18-week sonogram, her mothering world was turned upside down.

There was nothing micro-management could do to change the diagnosis, and now she had a choice - to go into complete overdrive regarding controlling her daughter's life, or transition to complete and total surrender of it all.

And in this episode, Lisa shares her journey to the surrender of her children, her motherhood, and encourages every single woman listening to do the very same thing.

What you'll hear:

  • Lisa's story of receiving the news about her daughters neural defect.
  • My story of my daughter's fight to live as a premature baby and how God helped me surrender her to him.
  • The scripture that Lisa's battle cry while preparing for her daughter's birth and after she arrived.
  • Why it now feels easier for Lisa to walk in surrender towards her daughter than the other seemingly smaller parts of her life.
