Proverbs 31 Ministries president shares adoption story
February 27, 2013 | Bethany Pico/Liberty University News Service
President of Proverbs 31 Ministries Lysa TerKeurst told her inspiring story of God’s challenging her to live in true obedience rather than follow a “Christian checklist,” during Monday’s Convocation at Liberty University.
She began her message by quoting Mathew 5:8: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”
“Our job is to just start looking for God. How many times do we pray and we ask God to reveal Himself to us and we get up from our prayers and we forget to look?” she asked.
A New York Times bestselling author of 16 books, including “Unglued” and “Made to Crave,” TerKeurst engaged students by telling the beautifully intricate timeline of how God called her and her husband to adopt two teenage boys from Liberia.
TerKeurst has shared her family’s story around the world, appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, The 700 Club, USA Today, Woman’s Day magazine, and Focus on the Family radio.
