The Church and Christian families are called to care for children of all ages – including those in the womb and outside of the womb. Join Steph and guests, Pastor Hans and Katie Fiene, as they talk about loving children through foster care and what that has looked like for their family throughout the years. They’ll talk about the challenges and joys of their journey with the foster care system, as well as the theology that guides them toward love and mercy for children in need of a home.

We believe that God is the author and sustainer of all life. We also know it can be hard to speak about the intrinsic value of that life when it feels like the world is trying to drown us out.
We’re right here beside you. In this podcast of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Life Ministry, we’re coming alongside one another as a community of Christ’s redeemed people, ones who are speaking up for and living out the sanctity of human life. Together we’ll explore life issues in a way that honors our heavenly Father’s value of human life, serves our neighbor, and connects us to others who are doing the same. Join us, so that together we can be friends for life.
