Depth Podcast Episode 32: Special Mom Story — Monty Stepura

Listen now:

Excited to share another Special Mom Story during the month of May on the Depth Podcast!

This week, Monty Stepura shares her adoption story.  It is beautiful to see God’s provision as she shares each part of her journey. Honestly, it is amazing to trace His hands and fingerprints in each and every detail of her life.  Friends, her story is powerful, and you do not want to miss these special God moments!

In addition, Monty offers encouragement and hope to women considering adoption.  She shares some of her favorite books that helped her along her journey as well as some helpful Scripture verses.  I love her wisdom and insight!
