This is one of our shortest episodes - clocking in at just under 20 minutes! We wanted to do a nice light episode where our listeners could get to know us a bit better, without having to hear us retell our life stories. Which come up here and there over the last 95 episodes.

Fostering Voices Podcast

Foster parents need to accrue different number of training hours to keep their licenses open. In Arizona, that number is 12 a year. We had 3 more that we needed to do, so Chris did his training on Feelings, and I did mine on Loss. They were very intermingled, so it worked well for us to do a podcast episode on them!

Last week we had Gaelin Elmore share the first part of his life's story with us. If you haven't heard it yet - go listen here!

In this episode, Gaelin tells us about high school life, his dad being imprisoned, and how he made it to the University of Minnesota (go Golden Gophers!), and East Carolina (go Pirates!) on football scholarships. And then he made it to the NFL, being contracted with the Cincinnati Bengals (even though he thought he was only going to make it to the CFL- the Canadian Football League - which Canadians don't even watch!) , and why he walked away from it all. 

The Good Word of the Day

"Or do you have no regard for the wealth of His kindness and tolerance and patience [in withholding His wrath]? Are you [actually] unaware or ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness leads you to repentance [that is, to change your inner self, your old way of thinking—seek His purpose for your life]?"

- Romans 2:4

We are so thankful for Gaelin (and his beautiful wife Micaela!) for spending time with us, and sharing their story with us.

Gaelin, way to pour hope into teens who need it, and for changing your inner self, to reflect God's love to everyone you encounter!

If you want to connect with him, you can do so via his website, or on social media. And as always, you can contact us on social media and at hello@fosteringvoices.com . Thanks and have a great week, friends!
