A Few Words From Our President
Our May/June/July issue of Life Lines gives us the opportunity to wish you all a fantastic summer and to extend both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day wishes to all of you!
In our Lifeline Family we have amazing houseparents who provide our young moms with the two-parent family that most of them have never experienced. They love our girls and guide them to the place of independence. Our goal is to model before the girls not only how Christian parenting should work but also how a Christian marriage should look. Does the wife come under the authority of her husband? Of course she does, because her husband loves her like Christ loves the church! What woman would not come under the authority of a man who would be willing to lay down his life for her?
We hear so often from the girls that now they know what they want to look for in a future husband. That is how valuable the parental model is! We wish a happy Mother’s Day and a happy Father’s Day to all who have filled the role of parenting! None of us have done it perfectly, but we can surrender our children, and Lifeline’s children to the Lord. I am so glad He is sufficient for the task!
Since our next issue of Life Lines does not come out until August, we also get to wish you a fabulous Independence Day!
That also ties into to Lifeline Family Center because “independence day” is whenever we graduate a mom from our program. Like with our own children we nudge our Lifeline ladies out of the nest with a certain level of fear and trepidation. Are they going to be able to make it on their own? Will they make good choices? Will they stay in the church? Can they live within their budget? The list goes on and on. Some of them soar like eagles but a good many of them trip and scrap their knees. Not fatal, but there is still work to be done. We are praying that God will make a way for us to provide our young graduates with transitional living. Like with every other addition to our ministry, if it is in His will He will make a way.
As always, thank you for your support and for providing us with the encouragement that has become the wind beneath our wings! Please join us in praying for our soon to be independent young moms. I would also ask you to pray for the houseparents that God has appointed to serve at Lifeline Family Center. They have a tremendous job to do. Together by the grace of God we can change the world…two lives at a time.
God bless you!
For life and Truth,
