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..

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…
