    So I was relieved and encouraged when I finally understood what Jesus meant when He said we should be perfect. Matthew (AMPC) says it like this: You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, having reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect. Please don't think that my parents were negligent and didn't want to help me with my book reports. My father, a self-employed CPA, limited his practice so .

      I am absolutely not perfect, far from it. It is really important to me that people understand this. I have always been uncomfortable being referred to as a ‘parenting expert’ (although the term is necessary for SEO/marketing/PR), because an expert to me is somebody who gets things right most of the time and rarely slips up.   I think my perfect book is also a contemporary, and I’d definitely agree that the perfect trope for me is enemies to lovers 🙂 I’m not sure if you read it yet, but Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett has the best-friends-to-enemies-to-lovers trope, and I absolutely ADORED it!!

      A successful relationship involves two flawed individuals, who are perfect for each other, who build something that is perfect for in our day to day lives, learning how to be perfect, or as near perfect as we can try to be, is a great way to lead your life. Why It's Okay To Not Be Perfect You are not your mistakes. Sofie Hernon. Indiana University. 65 Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.
