What is your favorite Bible verse/book/chapter/section? Why?


I remember when I read this group of verses for the first time and recognized my calling and life purpose. To live my life in sacrifice to whatever He asks me to do and that my life would be a light for Him. Philippians 2:15-17 "That you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.  Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering..."

Why are you pro life?

Job 10:12 says. "You have granted me life and steadfast love, and your care has preserved my spirit." God is the author and sustainer of life, who are we to play God? My middle child, Hayden, has special needs. Being a mother to Hayden completely changed my world -- changed my view of parenting and strengthened my conviction about the importance of EVERY life. People like Hayden are the salt of the earth and bring a richness to God’s creation. EVERY promise in God’s word is meant for EVERY life, born and unborn.

Who is your pro-life hero or role model?

Mother Theresa, her life modeled compassion, hope and help. “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”
