Welcome to 2017! A brand new year! A brand new start! Which of us couldn’t use a brand new start from time to time? We are on it!
The young women who come to Lifeline Family Center are usually on their second, third, fourth or maybe even fifth chance.
Lifeline is there for them because God never gives up on us.
Think of the possible ripple effect of helping one of our young women. When we bring in a homeless pregnant mom,
if the father of the baby wants to have contact with her, he must participate in counseling, at no charge, with Lifeline’s Biblical counselor.
If the parents of our young lady decide to come back on the scene, they too are required to have counseling if they now want direct contact
with their daughter. This counseling is also offered at no charge.
So let’s look at this situation: An unplanned pregnancy, that society says should be aborted, has resulted in these opportunities:
the young mom gets an education, lives at Lifeline Family Center for up to two years after the baby is born, receives professional
counseling, learns parenting and other life skills, and enjoys free child care at our “Choose Life Nursery.” On top of that,
the father of the baby gets free counseling as well as the girl’s parents. Talk about a good ripple effect!
Now let’s take a look at the ripple effect if Lifeline Family Center didn’t exist: A possible abortion, plus the effects of
post abortion syndrome on this young woman’s body and mind. She is still alone and homeless. There is no counseling for
her, nor her parents or the young man who got her pregnant.
You get the picture? Now you get to decide which choice is better. Your support of Lifeline Family Center is a check mark in
the column for choosing life! God’s Word says, “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for His compassion never fails.
They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)
Thank you for your faithful support of the life choice that is Lifeline Family Center. May you feel the hand of God’s blessings in a very real tangible way throughout 2017!
For Truth and life,
Kathy Miller, President/ Executive Director
