Share Your Story of Why You Love Life #whylife
At Informed Choices, we are very blessed as we come to the end of a successful banquet season. Thank you to all of our sponsors and friends who made it possible.
This year’s theme is “Every LIFE has a story.” At the Banquet, Steve Kaloper asked everyone to share their “why.” Why support Informed Choices? What an honor to hear the God stories of how He brought people to Himself and encouraged them to bless others.
I hope to continue the sharing and encouragement on our web site and Facebook. You can reply to this post or post at www.facebook.com/Informed-Choice-of-Iowa-111726838854253/
What is your why? Would you share your encouraging story with us? Would you challenge a friend to share their story to encourage others and challenge them to give to the life saving work of Informed Choice?
I’ll go first…#whylife
Why we do what we do. We love and treasure LIFE here in the Owen Family and we are thankful to be alive. You see, I was an unplanned pregnancy myself. My mother had me at a young age. She was brave enough to give birth to me and my father was brave enough to adopt me as his own. I have always seen myself as blessed because they loved me without one ounce of regret.
It was early in my teen years that I realized some people were choosing abortion as a solution for unplanned pregnancies. Seeing this brought such a deep love and respect for my parents as well as thankfulness for being alive. I also witnessed, through family and friends, the destruction that an abortion brings. A woman never wants an abortion; she just sees it as her only option.
When I got married and started having my own sweet children, the value of life became overwhelmingly clear. When my husband and I saw an opportunity to bring strength, truth, and hope to abortion-vulnerable women we had to act.
You’re also a part of this story. You saw the same opportunity and acted. Thank you!
Now I Challenge you to share your story and to challenge a friend to share their #whylife and challenge them to give to the life saving work of Informed Choice as we take the nation by storm with the Obria Medical Clinics.
