Sunday Visit: Faith from Doubts

It’s Sunday and the week of Thanksgiving break is ending, leaving me with mixed emotions.   Some members of the family need the structure of school to return as quickly as possible.  Others would be happy to take another week off.  Me? I can say that we made it through the week in decent shape.  Most days were filled with activities for Dimples, and when a large gap appeared, God filled the need in a wonderful way.

Yesterday I was chatting with my friend, Emily, and she said, “You just have to read this post.”  I read it, loved it, and today I’m sharing it with you.

Kim writes the blog, Like the Love, about her life as the adoptive mother of two boys.   A few weeks ago she wrote this post, Faith from Doubts; it is honest and wonderful.

One of my favorite lines is this, “You don’t need faith when you don’t take risks.”

Have a wonderful day.  I’ll see you all tomorrow.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Thank you for sharing this. I remember all of those early days: the transition. I enjoyed reading her older posts too, but my favorite quote is: "The part of the Bible about suffering and heartache and the least of these?  It was wearing skin." We still have hard days, but so much healing is taking place. God is faithful to finish the good work He started.
