Maybe you’ve heard the story of Art and Lysa TerKeurst who adopted two teen-aged boys from Liberia after she attended a concert of a Liberian boys’ choir. Lysa’s story – how God spoke to her about adopting and how many of her friends also adopted from this same group – is one of faith, obedience, blessing and God’s incredible plans that are exceedingly beyond all we could ever conceive!

Lysa is the head of Proverbs 31 Ministries and she writes a blog that is always uplifting and convicting. Lysa wrote here about her recent interview on the Oprah Winfrey show. There you can watch the clip from the tv program, which aired back in 2007 and includes an Oct. 2, 2009 update on the families.

I encourage you to read Lysa’s story. It’s about listening to God and following His lead. It’s about overcoming fear. It’s about God building a family – many families, in fact! You’ll be encouraged!

Also, please read Lysa’s next post titled Have I Ever Regretted Being Obedient to God? for more on her adoption story.
