Audience of One

by Troy Livesay Published Jul 30, 2010

(Guest post by  Tara Livesay) We are thankful that Together for Adoption recognizes that adoption is just one piece of our call to defend and provide for the orphan.

A Tough Road Worth Taking

by Jedd Medefind Published Jul 29, 2010

Last weekend, my brother and I hiked deep into California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.  Our mission: to re-supply my father and his two close friends who are filling a lifelong dream of hiking the John Muir Trail,  210 miles of breathtaking, rugged wilderness.  Their faces glowed as they described the glories of God’s creation they’ve encountered, […]

The Power of Sync & The T4A Conference

by Dan Cruver Published Jul 29, 2010

While reading Seth Godin’s most recent blog post, “The power of sync,” I thought about its relevance to our upcoming national conference. Why have over 1,000 people gather together to consider the gospel, the church, and the global orphan crisis? Because nothing creates the power of sync like the power of God — the Gospel! […]

[Guest Post by Julie Kouri, co-founder and leader of Bridges of Grace Orphan and Adoption Ministry in Austin, mother of 2 Russian adopted sons, and expectant mother of a little Ethiopian girl somewhere.] Sometimes God sets up impossibilities just so that the glory goes purely to Him when, after an unfathomable success, the world still […]

When Good People DO SOMETHING

by Paul Pennington Published Jul 28, 2010

[Guest post by Paul Pennington, Executive Director of Hope for Orphans ] As I have been anticipating the upcoming T4A event (October 1-2), I was reminded of a post I wrote back in April on the Hope for Orphans blog around the time of the National Summit that seemed appropriate in light of this […]

Raising Deliverers

by Randy Bohlender Published Jul 27, 2010

Guest Post by Randy Bohlender, co-founder of The Zoe Foundation. Historically, whenever a deliverer was about to come on the scene, there is a battle against the children. Pharaoh sensed the potential in the Hebrews and worried that a deliverer would rise. He had options. He could have vanquished the leaders. He could have tortured […]

Lasting Impressions…

by Brian Morgan Published Jul 26, 2010

I trained into Brooklyn, New York fall of 2008 with two bags in hand, leaving behind a comfortable life at my Blue Ridge Mountain home in Central Virginia. I took a leap of faith to serve at a small church plant just 500 feet from Ground Zero and became immersed in the culture of urban […]

The Gospel through the Church is the Answer

by Dan Cruver Published Jul 23, 2010

The Gospel is the answer to the global orphan crisis, and the Church is the people through whom the answer is applied. In His great wisdom God has called the Church to care for the orphan and the widow (James 1:27), but without the Gospel there is no empowerment for the church to do what […]

[Part 1 | Part 2] As of late, I’ve tried to begin each day by asking two questions: (1) Who is Jesus? and (2) Who am I in relationship with him? Asking those two questions helps me begin each day with Jesus at the center and not myself—not my problems, struggles, or even successes. If […]

Last week I had the privilege of being the guest host for the radio program Knowing the Truth and interviewing Dr. Susan Hillis (Senior HIV Scientist at the CDC), Dr. Karyn Purvis, and Elizabeth Styffe. Our topic? “AIDS, Orphans and the Church.” Each of these ladies shared compelling content that we as Christians need to […]
