In an interview with Jim Daly, he comments on his experience growing up in a dysfunctional family and how it has influenced his ministry to families. “I believe with all my heart that to be in Christ is to be a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17). Among other things, this suggests that followers of Jesus are not defined by their past. They don’t have to be locked into or held down by the sins of their fathers. Christ has set them free from slavery to the ‘same old same old’ of previous generations. I’m convinced that, in God, all things are possible. This has huge implications for marriage, parenting, and family life” (Jim Daly, “It’s Never Too Late to Become a Great Dad,” interview by Daniel Darling, Christianity Today, June 13, 2014, https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2014/june-web-only/itsnever-too-late-to-become-great-dad.html).
