When Pro-Choice Means Fewer Options

Intellectual consistency and honesty is very important to me. Unfortunately, however, we live in a clickbait headline-driven world where intellectual consistency and honesty tends to take the back seat. We are seeing this type of faux journalism more and more as our political culture continues to careen into a polarizing heap of nonsense. What is [...]

A New Season of HOPE

I love this time of year as we await cooler weather, another school year, and Friday night lights. I know some have grown tired of the social media back to school posts, but I actually enjoy seeing them. I enjoy seeing the difference a year makes and the excitement or lack thereof from each student. [...]

Languages Understood in the Womb: A Recent Study Un-Intentionally Celebrates Life

I recently came across an article referencing a study performed by the University of Kansas on a fetus’ ability to distinguish between languages while in utero. This article wasn’t written by the pro-life lobby or a pro-life advocate. No, this article was written by a science editor over at CBS News who proudly calls herself [...]

Pregnancy Centers: The Original Safe Space

If you are on social media, watch cable news, or know a millennial, you may have heard the phrase safe space. We have seen these spaces take shape, predominately, on college campuses, but today I want to let you in on a little secret. These spaces were not started by my generation, millennials, to air [...]

Downstream

Healthcare is dominating the headlines today. It doesn’t matter where you go for your news; we are being bombarded with CBO analyses, political posturing, and finger pointing. Those on the left are attempting to maintain perceived gains while those on the right attempt to completely deconstruct much of the last eight years as they seek [...]

The Numbers

Recently, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, released their annual report. This report’s aim is to highlight their services over the past year. Don’t expect to read a serious synopsis on their work. Instead, you can expect to read branding, marketing, and propaganda from the abortion giant. My goal today, however, is not to [...]

Loved, Valued, and Respected

We recently added some wall art to the main hallway of HOPE. These simple black and white canvases provide a glimpse into the heart of HOPE with three very specific and intentional words: Loved, Valued, and Respected. I realize that for some these are mere words without a great deal of meaning, but for us [...]

A Face to a Gift

Last week we came together to celebrate 20 years of HOPE. We were blessed to reconnect with past patients, volunteers, and staff members to stand for life. I could walk you through the entire night but I would rather focus on a particular segment of the night where a former patient shared her story with [...]

Maundy Thursday

What is Maundy Thursday? Why is this day important for the world? Maundy is a shortened form of the Latin word mandatum meaning ‘command’. So today we celebrate and reflect on Christ’s commandment to the disciples at the Last Supper. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I [...]
