Dads Leading the Charge

Published April 16, 2014 – Categories: Adoption, Caring for Orphans, Family, LSM

Throughout the Bible, God continually shows His love for the most vulnerable children – the fatherless. Think about that… there’s a profound theological and practical connection between men and the fatherless. What kind of radical implications should that have in the lives of Christian men and the way we care for the orphan? 

We see countless examples in our culture today of absent dads. There are very real and staggering statistics that drive home the effects this has in the lives of our youth. But when Christian men stand together to care for the fatherless, we see solid examples for vulnerable children filling the role every child needs most.

Walk in Her Shoes

Published March 14, 2014 – Categories: Adoption, Caring for Orphans, Family, LSM

This video started making its way into my news feeds this week, and I am struck by a simple reality… we forget to walk in someone else’s shoes too often. We see responses of anger, and we want to make it stop. We see reactions of fear and we want to make it all better right now.

Make a Difference

Published March 11, 2014 – Categories: Adoption, Caring for Orphans, Family, LSM

“People who really want to make a difference in the world usually do it in one way or another. And I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world: they hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters.

They get excited over one smile. They are walking to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities, and nations, and yes, the world.” – Beth Clark
