Grateful

Last week we invited volunteers back to HOPE to celebrate 20 years of service in Knoxville. We made gift bags, provided cookies and cake, and offered tours of the building for those that hadn’t visited in a while. The impact HOPE has had on over 25,000 patients would never have happened without the countless sacrificial [...]

Are We Witnessing a Trajectory Change?

On October 3rd the House passed a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. A similar bill passed in 2015, but this year’s passing seems a bit different. I don’t pretend to know if the Senate will follow in line, but I believe we are closer than ever at seeing a true [...]

Choose Love Today

I woke this morning to the sounds of my one-year-old calling for her mommy. I rolled over and was met by my four-year-old daughter snuggling for warmth against my side. I gave her a kiss and reached for my phone to silence the alarm. I quickly, as I do most mornings, scanned my newsfeed for [...]

What Happens When a Patient’s Water Breaks the Morning of Her Baby Shower? We Move the Baby Shower to the Delivery Room!

As many of you know, HOPE provides roughly 50 to 60 baby showers every single year.

We recently [...]

The author of the Mother Jones piece attempts to make the case for “remote abortions.” [...]

The Work Continues

This week I made the trip to Washington D.C. to join over a thousand pregnancy center workers for a conference with Care Net aimed at bettering our work across this country. This week we will worship, network, learn, and celebrate as we reflect on the past and look forward to the future of the life [...]

A Vehicle

Non-profits must fundraise to meet their budgets. HOPE is no different. We offer all of our services at no cost to our patients and provide roughly $550,000 worth of services every single year for men and women in this community. Fundraising, however, is simply a vehicle. It is not our end goal or motivation. Instead, [...]

Why Pray

We are currently right in the middle of our “Life Matters” prayer initiative. We have been blown away by the support and participation of so many around our state and country. The Lord is doing some amazing work through some amazing people as many are deciding to come out of the shadows and stand for life. There are [...]

A Society in Conflict

The past few weeks have, once again, brought a great deal of conversation concerning life and death. Our country has been faced with another school shooting, a generational type flood in SC, hearings on abortion and assisted suicide for the terminally ill, and a Doctors Without Borders hospital being bombed. Sadness and destruction continues to [...]
