“God does the impossible!” // Family Friday

I love Family Fridays. I love peaking into the lives of amazing Christian families who love God and desire their lives to be His. Who love Him so much that they would want to replicate His picture of adoption in their family. A family much like Travis & Shannon’s. Already parents to 4 kiddos, one from Ethiopia, they heard God telling them their family picture wasn’t complete. Through We started out our adoption journey with 3 boys and 1 girl. We really prayed about being gender specific but felt God tell us to let him have the control. Our 9 year old daughter prayed for a sister the whole time. When we got the call that “somehow” the wait list for both genders  had evened out and we were getting a girl, our 9 yr old daughter screamed and jumped and ran all over the house! It was a God moment to … Continue reading

A Fresh Start

2013. The new year seems to be the perfect time to turn over a new leaf, start afresh and move forward with renewed purpose and vision. Like me, I’m sure many of you look forward to this new year with  an “out with the old & in with the new”-attitude. As an organization, we’ve made some new goals too! We want this blog to not only be a channel to receive our ministry’s updates or a platform to tell stories, but also a community where resources are offered and discussed, leaving you encouraged and equipped. With a goal of creating community, we thought a good place to start would be to officially introduce myself, Leah Feller, the voice behind this blog… I originally “caught the Lifesong vision” in college while on two consecutive summer trips to Lifesong Ukraine.  My heart connected with that vision and I later joined the Lifesong team. Now, 3 years later, I serve … Continue reading

Adoption Process Was a ‘God thing’ // Family Friday

Listen in as Jon & Beth, Lifesong adoptive parents of Josiah from Ethiopia, share with us how God worked in their adoption journey… We are so thankful for Lifesong! We were able to have an account set up in our name where individuals and families could donate to our adoption while we were in the process. During our adoption process we actually received a lot of questions about Lifesong, so we were also able to educate others in the role of Lifesong in helping families. This was a neat experience, as many people had never heard of or understood what Lifesong actually does. We also got involved in another area of Lifesong—Lifesong Ethiopia, which grew our love for Ethiopia even further. We were blessed to visit some of the schools during our second trip to Ethiopia. This whole adoption process was a “God thing.” Experiencing how God turned our hearts towards … Continue reading
