This past weekend my family and I had the pleasure of participating in a community event supporting young women who have chosen to have babies (instead of having an abortion) or just mommas who need a little extra support. Many girls who find themselves with a surprise pregnancy without support don’t have many good options at their disposal. Many conservative christians have love in their heart when they chant outside of an abortion clinic but don’t participate in the after care of the mother and baby. This is that place.
We began with a heart to heart pep talk to encourage us walkers and to remind us why we were there. The gal in charge explained that one of the girls we were walking for had to decided to go back to college to change the direction of her life for her and her baby. This is exciting work that the Lord is doing in this community and for this family.
We began the walk in a word of prayer
Next we headed out for our mile walk through the neighborhood!
Walking with friends is the best
At the end of the trail we were greeted with bubbles!
After our soapy fun, we headed over to a small town get together that included such home made treats like donuts
There was also a rainbow hand made ATV powered kiddie train. I thought my boys would jump out of their skin they were so excited!
I love that my kids can experience this young the joy of participating in helping others. We had a great time.
