Life is precious. Always.
Sometimes we don’t have the words ready when someone asks us why we defend the unborn. Sometimes it’s just hard to stand up when it feels like the world is against you. Well you’re not alone. God is with us and we support each other fighting for the most vulnerable among us. These programs will build your understanding, confidence and desire to defend life. Always.
