    The Spirit of Adoption

    in Religion

    Adoption is something we're probably all at least a little familiar with.  But, did you know adoption is talked about in the Bible?  Moses was adopted by Pharaoh's daughter, which eventually put him in a position to free the enslaved Egyptians.  Have you ever thought about yourself , as a child of God, being adopted and, therefore, positioned to do something unique and wonderful for God, your Heavenly Father?  Listen this week as Dr Pauline and Catherine talk about adoption from a Biblical perspective.  

    As always, we welcome your comments and questions through Facebook (Dunamas Center Ministries), and Twitter (@YourDunamasLife).


    Watch for Dr Pauline's new book, "Won't Somebody Please Hear Me?  Healing from Birth Traumatomology Syndrome"...Coming THIS MONTH!
