The Main Thing:

Lauren McAfee loves Jesus, her role as wife and “mama,” and has an incredibly special way of sharing her family’s story of courage, heartbreak, and trust in God’s plan. We can’t think of a better way to begin Season 3 than to introduce you to Lauren and let her share the story of how God’s call has left them in the depths of joy, sorrow, and the need to continually seek and trust in Him.

As we listened back to this conversation, we found ourselves in awe of Lauren’s ability to manage so much yet with such grace that she so genuinely cherishes her varying roles in this season of life. Whether you’re thinking about adoption, in the wait, or in the trenches and wondering how to manage it all, Lauren has a message for you. While none of us can offer a magical solution to whatever it is you may be facing, we can find encouragement, wisdom, and insight from Lauren’s journey as we navigate our own.
