Grace Through Hard Things Part 1: Aaron & Charity

Our guests today are Aaron and Charity Clayton. The Clayton’s both spent time growing up in Texas - Charity in Desoto and Aaron in Terrell. Their family has lived in the Waxahachie area since 2011, where they have planted and are growing a church called Remedy Church. Aaron has also served as a Trustee for TBHC and they are both stepping back into the world of adoption and are working with us through that process. They have three children.  Sam is 13 and was adopted from Kazakhstan. They are also blessed with biological children.  Juliet is 9, and Valor is 7. One of the things they enjoy doing is traveling as a family seeing what God is doing in other places on mission and other church plants. The Clayton’s story exemplifies “God’s grace through hard things”. They join the podcast today because they “want to encourage and equip adoptive and foster families.  They also want to see more families adopt and foster.”   Episode sponsored by Danceworks of Waxahachie.
