Hearing the Call to Foster – Renee McCausey

As Mercy’s Rain releases, I wanted to bring about awareness for abused children. Join me with Renee McCausey and her husband, Scott, as she shares their story of “making a difference.” Thousands of children are displaced yearly, falling into a system where few really care. The McCauseys heard God’s call, and through their obedience, God not only brought them additional biological children, but two adopted children as well.

The birds rest among the branches and the animals below nestle against the safety of tree’s trunk. The silence of...

We recently attended the wedding of our niece in Andrews, NC. Somewhere in the Smokie Mountains, in a part of the Cherokee National Park (or somewhere pretty close), we found the tiny town of Andrews. Primarily, there to host summer campers and whitewater rafters, there was sweet refuge in this little place. Of course, it couldn’t have been located in a more beautiful region and though the green of trees and the flowers had not yet sprouted toward the sun, there was a pleasant silence...

Yep, silly as this picture is — there is method behind the maddness. When my son was in high school, he served as a marching band manager. His disablitiy refused to allow him to play an instrument so the band director was wonderful to allow him to be a part of the band as best he could.
