An Important Update from Andrew

What is my best use? I have wrestled with this question since June 24, 2022 and the Dobbs decision that ultimately overturned Roe. When I took the role of Executive Director at HOPE back in 2015 I had a strong desire to lead a team, advocate for life, and get off of the sidelines and [...]

A Helpful Framework

I have been thinking a lot lately about my motivation and my engagement in culture, in politics, and in the greater discussion surrounding life and abortion. What drives my action and/or inaction?

Over the past few months, life-affirming organizations have been targeted physically, legislatively, and now via big-tech. These entities have no reservations on spreading lies about our [...]

Abortion Searches Are Up Across Tennessee

We have spent the last year looking inward at our practices and outward at our patients trying to decide how we can better reach those in our city that are in vulnerable situations facing unplanned pregnancies and seriously contemplating abortion. This research and focused effort have produced some staggering data as we get a glimpse [...]

The Hard Stuff

The old me would have seen these riots and protests through the lens of politics. What will they mean for the elections coming up both locally and nationally? Will this help my team or not? That is not my view today. The brokenness we currently see in our world is raw and very real. Is [...]
