Heart Lessons Podcast // Episode Fourteen // It’s Not About Me

Episode 14

Today on the Heart Lessons podcast you will hear from my friend, Molly Timan. Molly and her husband faithfully serve in the children’s ministry at their church, but they also have a huge heart for foster care. Molly talks about her experiences as a foster mom and all the ways she has grown from these experiences. She also shares openly about the hardest parts of this journey, including what it was like to give back the first foster child they cared for and how she worked through the pain of realizing they couldn’t adequately meet the needs of another child they were caring for. And Molly’s heart lesson is one I’m sure we all need to hear – less of me, more of Christ. Listen and be encouraged and maybe, if the Lord leads, be brave enough to start your own journey in foster care.

Heart Lesson: 

More of you, less of me; He must increase, I must decrease (John 3:30)
