Great podcast, please add more family testimonials!
I really value this podcast, as we pray and discern about adoption...The podcast is focused on God, His calling, and is biblically sound. Great info, super helpful. I love hearing about each program and from the program points. But one request: I’d really love to hear more from families. We are in the trenches of trying to hear Gods voice, and would love to hear encouragement and experience from those who have gone before us in this process. How they heard and were led, their fears and how God met them in it, challenges they experience now that they are waiting or home and how God has been there too!
Thank you Lifeline for all you do for the glory of God and we pray for strength and encouragement and the ability to stand firm! Blessings!
An incredible resource
I discovered The Defender Podcast when praying about adoption. I was able to listen to helpful podcast episodes that educated me about the adoption process and about the China program. They were such a blessing! Two years later as we near travel, I continue to appreciate the podcasts. Thank you Herbie Newel and the Lifeline family!
Must listen if you have a heart for adoption.
