This episode of Where Faith Grows is all about international adoption! I was so honored to sit down with Jennie Mayes (virtually!) and talk all about her journey adopting internationally so far – we talk all about moments of waiting, hills and valleys, and the process of being in the messy middle with God.
Jennie shares her family’s story with such refreshing transparency. We all have seasons that feel like “the messy middle”, and this story of international adoption is no exception. Jennie talks all about how this experience has caused her faith to grow, how it has helped her realize faith she didn’t know she even had, and also how God gives us strength to live moment by moment in the times when we feel like we have nothing left to give.
Jennie and I also end up talking about the burden of overwhelm and feeling like we have to take the weight of our experiences all on our own shoulders. I love Jennie’s advice for all of us that walk through these seasons – without ruining it for you, I’ll just tell you it’s a must-listen!
Whether you are pursuing international adoption or just in a season of “the messy middle” in your life, I know this episode will encourage and inspire you! Jennie, I love your story!
