Mary DeMuth talks friendships, parenting, and her new book, We Too.
It’s such a gift to have Mary DeMuth with us today on Pardon the Mess. She’s a wife, mother of three, a blogger, a podcaster, and the author of almost forty books. Having suffered abuse as a child, her faith brought her to a place of turning her difficult past into God’s glory, allowing her to re-story her past.
We start our conversation talking about the seven deadly types of friendships and how to identify unhealthy friendships in our lives. She speaks practically and biblically on ending friendships that are not the Lord’s best for us while also giving us parenting applications as we guide our kids’ friendships.
We also talk about her latest book, We Too, a book she hopes will challenge us to fully support those around us who have been marginalized by sexual assault and abuse. She urges the church as a whole to rise up and face this evil with candor and empathy.
