Of special call today with the dear dear for a long time friend may get a high may again welcome to the Q&A show well great to have you with us here today.
I hear a little one of the background you here you go so you are a mom and I we'll talk about that but then you your over in Tennessee right Megan, so what part of where were Tennessee Tri-Cities Kingsport. I seem to recall a place called freedom Hall.
If I'm not mistaken, the there and in the Tri-Cities area frequented a handful of times in the in the squared circle, but so you're up there your mama to tell us about. He's got a very unique story. We go back got Steve do you know how many years so we been friends Megan about 10 or more. What we should be good. Matthew you homeschool. I think your children find I can never remember is okay so now we go back.
Along the way. I mean, from the days when you lived in wineries national considered East Tennessee Middleton as middle Tennessee.
I guess right now Tennessee you lived in Georgia about it so you you bounced around so and in that process out there, though, when I see you have a very unique story.
We here's what I want our listeners to hear you have embraced the process of adoption right after I killed five adopted children it and we mainly use it mainly through just tell help my memory here mainly through the foster care for all.
All through the foster care program.
I think about how another non-adoption adoption to separate sibling groups in the course you referring to part your very first I love my little buddy Parker Parker name of your other children know that I see pictures of him on social media is going up to it into a fine young man is Parker.
I really like oh that's awesome well you have a beautiful family. Will you do you are such a wonderful mother and for all those out there listening who are are wondering about the foster care program or or even considering adoption Megan what what would you say to encourage all those out there considering one or the other or even both like you did your listening to TruthNetwork.com software have registered for the morning service conference in August.yet what are you waiting for an amazing lineup of speakers including a superstar like Jerry Boykin, David and Jason that her brothers read yours truly registered today what are you waiting for to start events.com I will be sure to check out the man up show now available on television broadcast and go to MorningStar TV.com or the truth radio network, local listings or better yet, download the Truth Network app today your listening to the network and TruthNetwork.com or people walk for the reflected better and a lot that are available. People who are looking into questioning and wondering if that boy that you can take on and willing to share your or their and their question not come into contact that you probably wouldn't have ever painted art even imagine there are a lot of things that children are now fortunate enough to break. I'd sit there knowing how to navigate helping that child grow and you on and knowing how where they're coming, really helpful tool have some really great advice pages were quick to lose good low back noise. I do know that's the wind is blowing more but I want people to be able to hear you know actually what you're saying so you know we have low technical issues that even the getting you are on lies about thankful we made this connection today, but that's a great great advice for those out there and maybe there's some author list you never considered foster care or never considered adoption, but in the call. In today's climate more than ever it is, is become a real alternative to those mamas out there who are pregnant can I encourage you what a great alternative to consider putting that the child up for adoption and/or you know eventually good become part of the foster care program, but there are a lot of mamas like Megan out there who would love to become a mama and adopt a child or foster care, child, and so appreciate that Meg appreciate that you your heart for the end and your your love of those baby Savior racing and schooling homeschool so well really walk.
Yes it is that others that is a good point. Once you surrender your heart to Jesus, we become adopted into the family of God and that is great perspective as well. So what whether it's in the natural and you're looking to have a family of your own and in and would consider adoption or foster care or ill or maybe you have yet to surrender your heart to Jesus… Start with that process of adoption and make that decision and I give your life to Christ and be adopted into God's family, and then perhaps at some point he leads you and directs you. Maybe you're just not able to have children. For whatever reason, and that becomes a viable alternative for you so well. Thank you for sharing some of your story may again and it is Q&A with cholos working to transition here to give you the opportunity asked me a couple three questions would you flip it around here if you're ready, I'm ready, Megan.

Great question. Well, there's a lot of resources, so that that I have utilized over the years. I like to always say this, and when when others are interviewing me that that when I look at my life. I look I consider myself to be a lifetime learner and found out as much as I know, the more I learn, the more I find the how much I actually don't know is so which just kinda canisters the hunger in me to go to learn and learn more and to grow more at the very core. So at the very core, probably no surprise to you. The Bible is my first go to its my first best resource when it comes because everything's in there every answer I feel to any question you may ever have. With life is right there contained within the pages of the Bible whether it's marriage or it's it's gossipy business finances. I mean you can just go right through chapter by chapter wisdom.
Wisdom and understanding the mode of the wisest man on the planet Ray Solomon who wrote the book of Proverbs of your needing wisdom. He illustrates in Ecclesiastes that there's a time and season for everything and so you know the I have Jewish friends who will say all the financial principles are contained mainly in the Old Testament course New Testament, Jesus, talk to more about money than perhaps say anything else for me. I don't know them call me on the actual numbers of conversations but all that to say the Bible is by far probably the greatest resource when it comes to growing your wanting to learn and grow in wisdom and knowledge and understanding. In fact, the Bible says. The Bible says that the beginning of fear the Lord, there is nothing new under the sun with work and must be always coming. While on the other of the southern rail there.
Megan train whistle in the background there they go well. Hey, that just adds to the whole of our conversation right so I continue to pull that horn is that ERI Lord okay and just real quick outside outside of that out to be there so many got.
I feel so many things you can learn from other authors and people have written Bob Everett a couple books myself in and and can be ordered off of my website call ALT.NET but all that to say so much you can learn from others as well and and I would tell the listener out there autobiographies or barter life stories of others.
So my whether it's a Winston Churchill or George S.
Patton or or so many others that that could come to mind that you can learn from other people. So consider consider that. Consider that great question, though. Great question.
Lifetime learner all summarized by saying have a heart to be a lifetime learner, right next question. What I okay well that's it that's another great question communication at the very again the very foundation very core of any and all relationships with its relationship with Christ or or or your children.
As we talked about your children or a spouse or or a friendship I mean what what leads to challenges and in relationships say this is a lack of communication. It seems like about 100% of the time, somebody missed communicating a message or something point they were trying to convey. And so one is just having the patience to to work through misunderstandings and miscommunication and and then placing an emphasis on communication to understand that at the very core of this relationship is going to work.
We both got to be willing to be flexible and to bend and and to and to communicate with one another and I remember reading again from a book years ago that I would summarize to say this seek first to understand, before being understood.
Seek first off, you know so many times we just want to get our point across were neither willing to listen to what the other person has to say because we do so much want to get our point across and say what we have to say the cars were all that I'm always right.
You're always wrong, but just being willing to admit that.
Hey, maybe you're not always writes that you can potentially be wrong and be open to have this conversation just recently was someone who says someone is certain. This person was so set in their ways and what they believe that there is not even room to consider will meet you and maybe I'm missing something here. There's so close minded.
In other words that's and I'm willing to hear another person's point of view and accept the fact that that could actually be true in the way I'm believing could actually be wrong so be open-minded, be flexible, seek first to understand and before being understood what we got time well. Though this is not in fact you know what they teach you is to say, okay, here's what I hear you saying now that many people don't do this but but if you ever implement this into a conversation with.
Here's what I hear you saying. And when you repeat it back then that other person actually has the up to save that's not what I was saying at all because sometimes we we listen through our own our own lens, so to speak, rather than about the way we want to hear it. We here at the way we want to hear it, but it's not necessarily the message that's being made.
What's actually being said were just hearing it the way we want to hear it right and so yeah so that's a good rule of thumb is to repeat it back to person and if it's not being said the way not being understood the way it's been said then you have the chance again to patients to to then work through that. So okay yeah what why if I well. We will develop a whole. So for that one leg in the know know we can know that this is for those who don't know those nine for the spirit right love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control, and so you know it's interesting that the very top the list is love so… Start with love at the very top the list is just just learning and learning how to how to love. So if you're counting out there… You know I might've missed one. Along the way, don't hold me to get hold that against me just go to your Bible look at look up. It was Ephesians 522 and 23 for yourself in any way. All have to say I might have missed one. But hey all that to say love is rent the very top of the list. I believe one of the things the Lord made me one of the things the Lord may ask first and foremost is did you learn how to love did you learn how to love and I am forever asking the Lord fill my heart with with your unconditional love so that I could what I can see others with the set of eyes the way you see people but that I can love them.
The way you love them unconditionally, so it is taking me time to have to learn that to have to learn how to how to love others well and I'm still learning that that would go to the other end of the spectrum. The word self-control and I'm learning that I'm really in control of very little and as much as I like to think I may. I have self-control that I'm learning to turn control over to the Holy Spirit and live a life submitted to the Holy Spirit and allowing the Holy Spirit to control things and then I just come in line with with the with what it is he's asking me to do well there you go.
So I think you got some great questions today.
Megan and I really appreciate that. Appreciate you sending some time aside and and we work through all these technical difficulties.
But what you've asked in some of your story I think is really going to bless up so well appreciated Megan a high credible mother of five out there through adoption and foster care.
