MATT REDMAN-YOUR GRACE FINDS ME
In my ideal world, every child would grow up in a safe and loving home, but we know this world isn't ideal. For the last 5 years my wife and I have been Foster Parents in Southern Nevada. In that time we have met children who've faced things that I couldn't have imagined in my worst nightmares. But, it is truly amazing how a safe place and love can free a child from their past.
My wife and I have been watching X-Factor since the show debut this past fall. One of our favorites from the beginning has been Rachel Crow. This little girl is a ball of sunshine, watching her on stage you just have to believe there is something special about her....... and there is.
The Rock and Worship Roadshow is coming back to Las Vegas in February. Check out what Mercy Me, Jars Of Clay, Matt Maher, Thousand Foot Krutch, The Afters & Lecrae do during their downtime on the tour.
At Winter Jam I made some new friends..... Bob and Larry! I also scored some cool points with my kids and you can do the same by checking out the VeggieTales' Thanksgiving Sale!
Since this month is National Adoption Month, I wanted to showcase some SOS listeners that have experienced adoption first hand. I would like to introduce you to the Souza family.
As we enter the season of thanks, I have to ask myself, am I truly thankful? Sure, I mean God's done some amazing things in my life. I have six kids and an amazing wife. Life is pretty good. Then I was challenged by a quote a Pastor posted on Twitter.........
"What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?"

Daddy's in charge...... Brownies for Breakfast!
Being a Foster Parent has been quite the ride over the past 5 years. Last night I had the opportunity to attend a screening of a documentary on the Foster Care System. This film is not, I repeat not family friendly ( language and other items not suitable for those under 18 ) but it is real.
This film gives a first person look at what it would be like to age out of the foster care system. Can you imagine not having any family? Not having a place to call home? Turning 18 and being told you have two weeks to find your own place? This is a reality for some of the over 30,000 kids that age out every year.
