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.

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.
