When You Carry the Burden of Perfection :: Aubrie Norman [Ep 284]

May 4, 2020 | 1 comment

I’m so excited to introduce you to my friend Aubrie Norman. We have walked together in community for a few years and it’s been a gift to see her family’s journey toward healing. 

Aubrie and her husband Thomas came to their marriage from broken families and felt the weight of unresolved issues from their past. As their family grew, so did the stress and lack of communication about each of their emotional needs.

Aubrie carried every perceived failure in marriage and parenting thinking it was her responsibility to make life better.

“There’s obviously something I’m doing wrong. I’m a new wife and mom, so I felt the weight of responsibility. That really goes back to a huge lie, I have believed for a long time in my walk with the Lord. That it’s up to me to do something and that God’s waiting on me.”

She takes us into her family’s story of recovery and how she’s learned to trust God to take care of her relationships.

    This was so encouraging! My spouse and I are in a very similar situation! I am trusting God, but the explosive anger episodes have been plenty. I am interested in seeking out professional help for my spouse. I am already meeting with a counselor in my church. The anger is constant.
