Episode 16: The Marc of a Great Dad

May 19, 2018

Today’s episode is a different, and special one. You listeners are in for a treat – it’s one where there is no Jihae. So that means no hyena, high pitched laughs.

Life got in the way of the podcast, but fortunately, Chris is always up for a new challenge, so he took the reins as the host of this episode, and interviewed our good friend Marc Gagnon.

Marc is a great friend of ours, and he is an awesome husband, and awesome dad to two incredible girls. His youngest daughter was adopted out of foster care when she was 2 years old. This interview is insightful, and honest, and we hope you learn a lot from this episode.

Things to note:

Marc mentioned that they adopted through RISE. This is a fantastic agency to consider whether you are going to foster or adopt.

Marc is also a soccer coach, and you can find him at East Valley Soccer Academy, on Instagram. He does private lessons, as well as coaching whatever teams his girls are on.

Marc and his wife, Karah, are both successful bankers. I love all the different varieties of family dynamics on this podcast. You do not have to be a stay-at-home parent in order to foster or adopt.


The (Good) Word of the Day:

Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall, he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us, the God of Jason is our fortress.

Psalm 46:6-7

That’s a good Word people! So apt for the kind of day that we had at the Watson household.

Fortunately God is in control of absolutely everything. He is our fortress, and He is with us!

Thanks for tuning in friends! Until next time – Bye!
