Author and mother of two Karis Kimmel Murray explains that grace is giving something not necessarily deserved. Just like God, who often gives us what we need over what we like, parents are tasked with extending grace to their children. Murray illustrates what it’s like to let grace define your relationships even when the other person disappoints you.
