Jeremy Sharp is our friend, one of our financial advisors at Stewardship, and fellow foster parent. He started his life as a foster baby, born to a teenage mom in Maine, adopted by a Christian couple, and now living his best life in sunny Arizona. He shares how he got from his humble beginnings, to where he is now, in this week’s episode.
Born in a tiny town in Maine to a teenage mother, Jeremy grew up in New England (only reason he’s a Patriot’s fan. Right, Jeremy?… ) . He recently submitted his DNA kit to see what his official background is. He is hoping to be part Micmac and part Jewish. Which is where we came up with Mac Jew. You have to listen to the episode to hear this part of the conversation.
Jeremy and his wife, Grace (episode 45), started their foster care journey 3 times! The first two times were just not the right timing, and they used those times to grow, work on their marriage and family, and patiently wait until it was the right time to start fostering.
“For the revelation (vision) awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay.”
What a perfect verse for Jeremy’s life! Especially in light of wanting to be involved in foster care, but having to wait for the right timing for that. But this is applicable for us all, that it is important to have vision AND patience.
