Ep.30 | Rob Scheer: Saving A Seat for Our Children Saving You a Seat

    • Management

Every day, over a thousand children enter the foster care system. These children do not arrive there based on their own choices. They enter the system as a byproduct of other people’s choices and most experience a life of chaos and heartbreak.

This week, Rob Scheer, author, child advocate, and founder of the non-profit, Comfort Cases, joins us to discuss his story, the stories of foster care children (including his own). Amazingly, his message focuses on how forgiveness and unconditional love helps us rise up from the dark and open our hearts to the greatest gifts love has to offer.

We dive deep into Rob’s story of redemption, restoration, and belovedness and learn how we can hold forgiveness alongside our parenting journey.

Grab your tissue box and open up your heart because Rob Scheer gets real about his experience in the foster system, becoming homeless at eighteen, and carrying his entire belongings in a tattered and torn trash bag.

If you are all about a story of human triumph, do not miss this.

Now as an adult, Rob, author of A Forever Family: Fostering Change One Child at a Time, has adopted five children from the same system he was once in and has devoted his life to restoring dignity to those transitioning in and out of foster care systems.

Here’s what we connect on:


Reclaiming your strength through unconditional love and forgiveness (6:50)
Rob’s story of pain, purpose, and finding light in the darkness through his faith (9:20)
The story behind Comfort Cases and the gift of hope and love it gives foster children worldwide (16:59)
What legacy are we leaving our children and is it something we can stand behind (22:00)
The hardest part of being a Dad and how the challenge has made parenting a prayerful experience (23:29)
