Eight Hours and Eighteen Baby Showers

This past week, we were fortunate enough to host 18 baby showers for first-time moms at HOPE. For eight hours, we welcomed moms, dads, families, and friends inside our walls to celebrate the arrival of a little boy or little girl. This is nothing new at HOPE as we host baby showers every quarter, but [...]

A Reminder

This week the staff at HOPE reminded me of just how special they are in serving this city that we get to call home. I realize that my viewpoint may be biased when it comes to HOPE’s work, but I legitimately believe that this staff and others like them across the country will be the [...]

The Hard Days

I typically focus on the good days here at HOPE. I share the stories of redemption and reconciliation as we celebrate the lives of our patients and their babies. I am not apologizing for this, but I do think at times it is easy for us, the pregnancy center movement, to neglect sharing the hard [...]

A New Day

Forty-five years ago this week, the greatest country this planet has ever seen ushered in a new era for future generations. An era that would bring about destruction to women, men, the unborn, and families. I realize that my description is aggressive, but Roe v. Wade was an aggressive court case that we continue to [...]

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 [...]

Abortion in the Modern Era Utilizes Telemedicine

Mother Jones recently featured an article discussing abortion in the modern era. We are living in a very progressive time. That’s right, our phones are now super computers, cars are driving themselves, and abortion doctors are seeing patients via teleconferencing. The author of the Mother Jones piece attempts to make the case for “remote abortions.” [...]

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 [...]

Halfway There

Clinics and citizens standing together in one voice for those that have no voice. This simple sentence sums up “Life Matters”. The week of October 11th is shaping up to be very special for a few reasons. First, we know that God hears our prayers and we are seeking, that week, to send a lot [...]
