As moms who love Jesus, we want nothing more than to raise our kids to know, love, and follow Jesus too.  But how do we best impart this devotion to our kids when we are flawed and sinful by nature?  The answer, I believe, is to let Jesus transform us to become more and more like Him in the way we act and how we disciple our kids.  We need a mommy make-over…not a make-over of our outer appearance but a makeover of our hearts…Let’s take a closer look at  how Jesus discipled His followers to learn how we can be Mamas who disciple our kids to follow Him too.
