Life is Grand
Life is grand for a child that gets adopted. This National Adoption Month, we set out to bring you a National Adoption Month Tribute that will bless everyone. Read the stories of men and women that were adopted or have adopted and be encouraged with videos and podcasts.
It is unfortunate that so many boys and girls are either orphaned or in the foster care system. You don’t have to go to Nepal or China or South America to find a child that need a mommy and a daddy. Orphanages right here in the USA need your support. The foster Care System in America is in chaos! Children are aging out of children’s shelters at 18 with no idea of what it means to have a family.
America leads the world in many areas and we should be proud of that! However, America leads the world in Fatherlesness. We should be ashamed that the USA has the highest percentage of fatherless homes! We live in a Fatherless Nation where the norm is to grow up in a home without a dad! Did you know that in the USA, 24 million children will go to bed in a home without a dad tonight? This ought to scare you, for as the family goes… so goes the nation!
I am not trying to scare you, I want to encourage you to do something about it and to make a difference in a child’s life. There are too many children that need to be rescued and we (the church) are called to be the first ones to do the rescuing! Can you hear the children calling out to you and saying: RESCUE ME!
Adoption is Grand
There is NOTHING like it. NO ONE can prepare you for it. It is SCARY. I tell people all the time about the experience of adopting three boys. Nevertheless, I cannot imagine my life without them. Their stories are amazing and the alternative would have been devastating for them and for us.
If you know someone who was adopted, or a couple who has adopted, make sure you give them a kind word and encourage them. For those who are going through it right now, the road is hard and there are so many obstacles. Many times, it is scary, it is lonely and you just want to curl up in a corner and cry yourself to sleep. But I know that God will see you through it. Trust the Lord! God’s perfect will for you is amazing! Before you know it, you will be celebrating the outcome and encouraging others who are in need.
November is national Adoption Month
November is National Adoption month. Plan something special for those who have adopted, make it a joyful time as you give thanks for what God has done. For those who are planning on adopting, DO IT and don’t look back! For those who are going through the legalities of the adoption, I pray for wisdom, and for strength.
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
For the next 30 days, Manly Training will post a daily article, video or podcast. We bringing you the most touching adoption stories you have ever heard. Manly Training will also post articles designed to encourage those who are either going through the adoption process or thinking about adoption.
I want to ask you to share this page with friends and family. Encourage them with our 2017 National Adoption Month Tribute. And if you feel called to get involved and you don’t know how, contact me NOW, just click on this link: CONTACT ME NOW.
Truth time: Manly Training Ministries is a full time job – on top of my Area Manager Job and being a husband and a Father! I easily put 30+ hours a week into creating the content for Manly Training– whether it’s dreaming up posts, creating art images, responding to emails and comments, and managing my social media feeds.
There are two ways to help me do this!
2) by joining me over at Patreon!
Patreon allows you to pledge as little as $1 a month, and in return you’ll get some pretty cool rewards, ranging from your name and blog on my MTM VIP page, exclusive content, and PODCAST VERSIONS of my posts!
MTM Won’t Change, I Promise.
But don’t worry! MTM is still going to be EXACTLY what it is now — New Posts every Tuesday and new Podcasts every Monday. Patreon perks are simply that: extra perks!
I have big plans for Manly Training– including a book AND a YouTube channel.
Your pledge will help me continue to put the considerable time and effort into each and every post that makes Manly Training what it is.
So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I pray every day for each and every one of you who take the time to read my words. You are a blessing.
