LISA: ON BIRTH MOMS + FARMHOUSES + GIVING DREAMS TO GOD
Lisa Robertson is a biological and foster mom. This week she talks real about building the dream foster house, changing plans, building relationships with biological family, and celebrating the beauty and brokenness of adoption.
• The intro song, The Source, is brought to you by one of the greatest worship bands out there, The Evidence. Yes, the frontman is my (talented, brilliant, adorable, Jesus-loving) cousin. No, that's not why I love them.
• Mess Into a Message is Lisa's blog. Her words are always chockfull of goodness, but her post "Headed Up the Hill" BLEW ME AWAY a few weeks ago. Read it now, then follow her to keep up with her blog.
• Trim Healthy Mama is the diet that Lisa ascribes to (not very well, so it seems). Nutella and beer is the one that I ascribe to. You can pick up the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook, or you can head to your local store and pick up a six pack of Sixpoint Resin, the greatest of all the beers. You choose.
• Shout out to Wendy's for making cheap food that my family can eat when I'm tired and doing awesome things for kids in foster care. Pro tip: Every January you can pick up your annual $2 frosty tag. You get a free mini Frosty as often as your little heart so desires FOR A WHOLE YEAR, and every cent goes to finding homes for kids in foster care. Win-win.
• Adopted for Life by Russell Moore (Probably the best book to gain a great theological foundation for adoption.)
• Rend Collective (The cool kids of the worship scene. Hipster music, gospel lyrics. Good News is their newest album and on par with all the goodness they've released before.)
