Responding in Faith started out as the telling of our adoption journey from Liberia as a way to keep family and friends updated on the process. Then it slowly began to evolve into a place of encouragement for others through our journey in life. My hope is that Responding in Faith will be a source of encouragement to help you, the reader, draw nearer to our Lord and Savior and to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus as He is the author and perfecter of our faith! It is exciting to see how God has grown this website and has added some amazing writers who have also chosen to respond in faith in their walks in life! Be blessed!
My name is Sonya. I wear many hats in my house! I am the daughter of my King, loving wife of Russell and the mother of 15 beautiful children. I home school our children with the help and support of my wonderful husband. I am making an attempt at writing which has been a wonderful pass time when I can find the time! I am a graduate from She Speaks, which is a ministry from Proverbs 31 Ministries. I have also enjoyed public speaking at churches, conferences, and retreats about adoption/orphan care, walking in faith, and finding victory in Jesus Christ. Russell and I have had the opportunity to speak together sharing our God journey. I have even played around with some skit writing and performing! Did the Oprah thing. Not every day that you can say that you got to proclaim God on world wide television. We had more fun speaking on our local radio station! Imagine fitting 11 children into a studio and talking for an hour with everyone being ever so quiet! I hope you enjoy the journey that God has called our family on and how we are learning to respond in faith! It you would like to contact me, you can email me! I would love to hear from you!
Hey there! My name is Stephanie. I am a seeker, lover and servant of my Heavenly Father. I am a homeschooling mom of 2 beautiful children that God has blessed me with through adoption. I am a wife, of 14 years, to my loving, devoted and awesome husband, Jamie. I became a believer about 10 years ago and I am so thankful everyday that the Lord grabbed a hold of me and has never let go…even when I have strayed, He is always there to pick me back up. A little known fact about me is that I became a published writer in high school and I love to write, when I can find the time. Anytime I write I try to talk about lessons that he is showing me in my life (through reading His Word, praying and being obedient to Him). So many times people have told me, “Hey I am going through the same thing!” The fact is though our trials and temptations may be different, we all have them. I pray that through this journey we will all see that God is bigger, God is powerful, God is never changing and GOD LOVES YOU! If you would like to contact me, you can email me. Blessings to each and every one of you!
Hi! My name is Chelsey. I savor the moments when I can curl up on the couch with a blanket, a caramel apple spice and great book, I am a pen hoarder, and I enjoy consuming carbs in their many forms. I am the proud wife of Josh, and so far, God has entrusted us with four of His most precious gifts (ages 2-11). We started life together young and our family grew quickly. We both love children and would welcome more into our family if God sees fit. I have started a couple of new adventures this year with God as my guide. The first of which is homeschooling our oldest two children. It is hard work but I am so glad God opened this door for our family. It is such a blessing to have them home with me. The second is this amazing opportunity to write. My passion for writing started at a young age but I chose to pour my time and energy into a field that was not God led. I recently reached up to my Heavenly Father, arms wide open and said, “Lead Me.” So, as the blog is titled I am “Responding in Faith” as God guides me on this journey. I can’t wait to find out what He is going to show me and teach me! If you would like to contact me, you can email me.
