This weeks edition of marriage & parenting highlights brings awareness to adoption, social media for your kid’s safety and a great video to remind you of the importance of your spouse. I don’t know abut you but I can be so forgetful and simply need reminders of what is important in my life.

Advice After Adoption: I love hearing stories of adoption and the how beautifully it represents the gospel.

If you are like me and have not adopted then read this to get a sense of what adopted families can go through. You will also have a better sense of how to pray for them.

More than likely your children will get involved with it at sometime or may already be. There are some great thoughts on this post to consider as your kids engage social media. Parents you need to have some understanding of social media if you are going to help your children be wise in the use of it.
