Hope Unlimited Family Care Center

I want to take some time today to tell you about an organization that is very close to my heart.  It’s Hope Unlimited Family Care Center and Medical Clinic.  Many people here in our own area aren’t aware of it, and if they are, they are completely unaware of all of the wonderful things done and supported by this ministry.  Hope Unlimited has come a very long way since it’s beginning in 1989.  It started in a small building as a place for one to go with an unplanned pregnancy, for free pregnancy tests and support for the mom to be.  Now, some 27 years later, it has blossomed into a ministry serving not only these women in a crisis situation, but also the entire family, in crisis or not.  The vision of Hope Unlimited is to serve families as a whole and they now offer a myriad of services intended to do just that.

Yes, free pregnancy tests are still offered, but there is now so much more.  There is a program designed to help parents or guardians of children under the age of 18 to acquire necessities such as clothing, diapers, food and other essentials while also working towards a goal set by themselves, or working towards healing from certain past hurts that many of us carry.  There are programs in place to educate high school and middle school children on sexual integrity, and opportunities for men and women to learn job skills that will better empower them to find and keep jobs so that they may support their families.  There is also the medical side to Hope Unlimited..  Free STI testing is now available as well as a full OB medical clinic where a woman can choose to have her prenatal and post-partum care.

There are truly so many facets to this ministry that I can’t do it justice, I’m not a marketer…  If this sounds even remotely interesting, please click the link below.  It is an interactive copy of the newest newsletter from Hope Unlimited..

Mother’s Day kicks off one of Hope’s biggest fund raisers, the Baby Bottle Campaign!  This is a month-long campaign that runs from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day.  Many churches, businesses and individuals receive empty baby bottles and throughout the month, place their spare change in the bottles and return them to Hope Unlimited.  Change doesn’t sound like much, but it makes a HUGE difference!  Watch this year’s video here.

There’s a new video each year to kickoff this campaign, keep an eye on this organization!

In case you’re curious about what else may be offered, but don’t have time to check out the site, here’s a quick video touching on available services through Hope Unlimited Family Care Center and Medical Clinic.

Why I Am a Pro-Life Nut

What a beautiful post!! Thank you so much for sharing your story.

Please see original blog to comment

Three Marys For A Martha

Warning: This is a LONG post, but I hope it is worth it. I would break it up into two, but it needs to be said at once. It is my personal story, about which many people in my past know part of, but don’t know the whole.  Again, it is MY PERSONAL STORY, so you can come away thinking whatever opinion you want to when I am done, but it won’t change my truth.

Funnily enough, when I was a teenager, I was passionately Pro-Choice. I even won a debate about it once and felt all proud and progressive…but God has a way of knocking you on your butt when you get too high and mighty. He bonked me right on the head, I assure you.

There are three reasons I am pro-life.

1: I am a Christian–A Catholic Christian at that, so by default, I believe in respecting…

WILL GOD EVER LOVE ME AGAIN?

Another beautiful post from a wonderful blogger! Please check it out and leave your comments on her page..

Can you even be a Christian after having an abortion?

This is one of the hardest walks in my faith that I have ever taken.

It is time, to take you on that walk with me….

But, before we discuss that, there is one thing that we need to get out of the way. This is NOT a discussion about religion. I am a Christian. I believe in God. End of that story.

If you are not a Christian, guess what? I love you anyway, because, that’s what Christians are supposed to do.

I couldn’t care less if you don’t believe what I believe. That’s the magic of religion, we get to choose, and none of us are wrong. What I believe is right, because that is what I believe. As is, what you believe. It is right, for the individual. I believe that as a Christian it is not…

I Killed HIS Baby.

This is a beautiful story, and one that needs to be heard many times throughout the world!!  Please take your time to read this, without passing judgement.  If you have encouraging words for this blogger, please leave them on the original post.

RAH'S MIRROR

I have come across the inspiration, again, to write about something that is extremely hard for me to write. It is real. It is painful. It is something that I am scared to tell you about.

It is a secret that I have kept for too long. It is a secret, that deserves to be shared. Hopefully, hopefully you can look past what I have done, and hear the message behind what I have learned.

As hard as this is, I know it needs to be done. My actions have directly caused the pain of one man in this world, and that’s not fair. My not talking about it, indirectly causes the pain of every single man in this world, that is just like this one man that I hurt so badly.

My courage to speak up. The small amount of courage that I have mustered up, is completely thanks…
