Thanks for tuning in for part 2 of my conversation with Mrs. Barbara Rainey. In this episode, the First Lady of Family Life (or FLFL- abbreviation mine) openly shares about a time at which she felt more isolated than at any other point in her life.
Each of us will talk about rewards and trials we’ve experienced with our daughters. (Nothing on earth quite like a mother/daughter relationship.) You’ll hear, clearly implied, the innate desire deposited into an adopted child to know her birth parents- ESPECIALLY the birthmom.
We will discuss “drive through divorce,” and how Miss B has learned to trust in God’s sovereignty, over her own tendency to control. She will tell you about her Hope- which does have a Name and how prayer does not mean asking God to change the other person. 🙂
You will hear the passion in her voice for influencing thought around Easter (and get a glimpse of my disdain for pastel colors at Easter time, in particular; gimme some dark, dramatic jewel tones to match the theme!!!)
I will also extend to you, the hope I find from keeping a tiny bottle of myrrh oil on my desk. Right before Jesus Christ was nailed down to the Cross, He refused myrrh- I will explore why this is significant and how that translates into a Hope we can cling to, even in these turbulent days…. and serve as a reminder to pray for the Christians who are being persecuted all over the world for the sake of the Name.)
The scripture passage Miss B refers to is found in Hebrews 11. Read it for yourself here- http://bit.ly/2oXYwv6

(As you heard in last week’s outtakes, Barbara Rainey is as approachable as it gets. This week’s outtakes, she shows more consideration for a wanna be podcaster’s time than she does her own. Typical of Miss B- always putting others before herself….)
If you know someone who can benefit from hearing these words of encouragement, please share this episode with them. Send it over via text or email with the help of your handy dandy podcast app- there’s a “Share” option in the drop down menu. Easy.
Thanks again for joining me today.
