38: Jeannie Cunnion | Living Free & Giving Grace

This week we’re talking about parenting well with one of our favorite parenting experts, Jeannie Cunnion.

Jeannie’s written two best selling books on parenting (Mom Set Free & Parenting the Whole Hearted Child), has a Master’s degree in Social Work, and is a contributing writer for The Better Mom and Fox News. Jeannie’s writing has been featured on outlets such as The Today Show, Fox and Friends, The 700 Club, and Focus on the Family.

We chat with Jeannie about her journey of becoming an “accidental writer”, how encountering the grace of God radically changed her parenting, and what it means to live truly set free. This was SUCH a powerful episode. So full of truth. Grab your coffee, grab your journal, it’s a good one!





“I started off my journey of parenting thinking, ‘How hard could this be?’”


“I can’t allow myself to feel successful or unsuccessful based on praise or criticism.”


“What does it mean to live set free?”


“How does it radically change our lives when we receive God’s grace?”


“There is nothing Jesus can’t set us free from.”


“We’ve been set free from so many things, but also set free to so many.”


“We’ve been set free to love.”


“He wants our hearts before He wants our effort.”


“When we’re in love with Jesus and following Jesus, He bears that fruit in our lives.”


“Studies have shown, kids who don’t flee their faith were raised in homes where the gospel was central.”






Ragamuffin Gospel, Brennan Manning
