Monday Musings: Kids in Need

We had another foster child for a short-term respite stay this weekend, and I am reminded of how precious children are to Jesus. He calls us to care for the fatherless, and these foster kids are in need of loving families to come alongside them with helpful boundaries.

I am in awe that we get to be part of serving kids in this way. What are you doing to help others that goes beyond yourself or your family?


  1. Yes I help with a program every Saturday for parents in recovery my husband and I run the sound for the music, and I love it.

    Sounds nice about being a foster parent even if its for a weekend, nice that you can do that.

    Take care

  2. I have thought of doing foster care. I have two teenage daughters and that has sort of swayed me away from it. Any thoughts?

  3. We have found that it is a great way to open our home to kids in need, and to get the whole family involved. I would highly recommend selecting foster kids that are younger than any of your biological kids, so your kids can influence them more than the other way around.
