12. Of Life’s Transitions, Faith, and Miracles

Welcome to View from the Top podcast! In this episode, we are joined by Steve Kinsley as he shares his Miraculous Adoption Story: How Two White Americans Adopted Alfie in South Africa.

Steve’s story sends a message that anything is possible with faith and hard work. Despite being a 47-year-old white man from America with a volunteer visa to South Africa, he successfully adopted the baby with the help of a social worker. The story is a testament to the power of never giving up, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Steve also shares two books from John Eldridge: "Just Get Your Life Back: Everyday Practices for a World Gone Wild or Gone Mad" and "Working Without a Net: How to Thrive and Survive in Today's High-Risk Business World," both have been meaningful to him over the last six months. Both books offer practical advice on how to disconnect from social media and reconnect with nature.

3 Key Takeaways

  • Always be open to God's guidance and willing to accept and follow it, even if it isn't what you initially expected.
  • Sometimes we must surrender to God and trust that He will provide us with our needs, even if it means giving up something we want.
  • One small act of kindness can significantly impact someone's life. The power of one person can be profound, and even a small act of kindness can make a big difference.
