#002: The High Highs and Low Lows of Adoption: An Inspiring Prayer Story

We recently polled a large group of Christian moms about their prayer lives and found that many of the moms who have been Christians for a long time DON’T actually have the kind of prayer life they believe they SHOULD have. What grabbed us the most from all those responses were the moms who said, “I’m just not sure I see the value of prayer anymore. I’ve prayed for years and God just doesn’t seem to answer me.” Since she was 15 years old, author Kelli Stuart felt lead to adopt a child, but the journey toward the fulfillment of that dream was filled with very high highs and very low lows. In this episode, Kelli will be joining us today to tell her story. Our hope is that you’ll be inspired by it, and find the strength you need to keep praying. So grab that laundry basket, turn on your bluetooth in the car, or pour your favorite warm cuppa something and let’s dive in!
