Hello out there! I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm in charge of the
40 Days for Life Campaign here in San Angelo, TX. The dates for the campaign are:
Wednesday 9/24/14 - Sunday 11/2/14. We will be praying at Sacred Heart Cathedral
in and around the courtyard (facing Beauregard). The hours we will be praying are:
7:00 am - 7:00 pm for 40 days! This is nondenominational, if you are pro-life,
come join us! If you live out of town and happen to be driving through San Angelo,
we would love for you to join us! Peaceful praying for an end to abortion, maybe
some singing, a table with colors and coloring books for the little ones. My goal
is for there to be 5-10 people praying every hour! My husband and I will start most
mornings off bright and early at 7:00 am. I will be at the vigil on and off
every day! It is a big commitment, but I have faith that pro-life people will rally
around to pray for the unborn. Let me know if you want to sign up for an hour or
more each week. If you go to the 40 Days for Life website:
you can click on fall campaign and find a vigil that is closest to where you live,
and then you can sign up right on line!
Yesterday afternoon, I went to the Pregnancy Help Center here in San Angelo to tell
them about the campaign, and ask if it was ok to hand out their brochures. I just
want to tell you how clean, organized, and efficient they are. They provide a
wonderful service for young pregnant mothers. Not only do they offer free pregnancy
testing, and free sonograms, they also have a very large room with clean baby clothes,
and some maternity clothes. They give the clothes away for free. If someone is in need
of diapers, wipes, and items such as; car seats, play pens, etc. they offer parenting classes
for both the mothers and the fathers where they earn points for each class attended to go
towards these more expensive items. They have wonderful people teaching these classes
to the young mothers and fathers.
I've got to go and fold and put away my laundry now! Y'all have a great evening
and think about praying at one of the 40 Days for Life Campaigns near you! If you
have some nice maternity clothes that you are not going to use, please find a
Pregnancy Help Center near you, they always need maternity clothes!

             If we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.
                           1 John 4:12

         Bye for now,
                   Blessings and Peace, Sharla

This Post Resonates Even More Today Than It Did Last Year

Good Morning out there! On Monday I added some new adoption and post-abortive
healing links to my blog. I'm adding this link also after reading several testimonials
from men, women,  and people who worked in the abortion industry.
My heart breaks when I read these testimonials. So many lives are ruined, are
destroyed because of abortion. Please take time to read these testimonials. Reach out
to people who may be in need of healing.
Speaking out about these issues is the only way to help people understand how many
lives abortion takes. How many lives abortion damages.
We need more people to take a stand against abortion. We have to speak up.
Planned Parenthood spends millions of tax payer money on campaigns to make sure
that pro-abortion people are elected. Abortion is big business for them. Our tax dollars
help pay for abortions. Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities don't care
about these young women, they care about the money each abortion brings in.
 Please help me get the pro-life message out there. Please pray for
an end to abortion. Please find out information about your city's Pregnancy Help
Centers, those that actually help these young women in crisis pregnancies, and
spread the message about the help that is available. Please do not be silent.
You can make a difference.
Don't give up, sometimes I want to. But everyday I pray that God will give me wisdom
to know what to say, what to do, to help get the pro-life message out there.
As Catholics, we pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary on Wednesdays.
When we pray the Rosary for the Unborn, we add special intentions after the mystery
and the scripture verse.

The First Glorious Mystery
The Resurrection
"You need not be amazed! You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, the one
who was  crucified. He has been raised up; He is not here. See the place
where they laid Him." (Mark 16:6)
Christ is Risen! By His Resurrection, He has destroyed the power of death,
and therefore the power of abortion. The outcome of the battle for Life has
already been decided: Life is victorious! Let us pray that all pro-lifers will
spread this victory to every segment of our society.

The Second Glorious Mystery
The Ascension
Then, after speaking to them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into Heaven and
took His seat at God's right hand. (Mark 16:19)
By ascending to the Father's throne, Christ takes our human nature, given to
us in the womb, to the heights of heaven. He shows us that human beings are
made to be raised to heaven, not thrown in the garbage. Let us pray that the
world may learn this truth and reject abortion.

The Third Glorious Mystery
The Descent of the Holy Spirit
All were filled with the Holy Spirit. They began to express themselves in foreign
tongues and make bold proclamation as the Spirit prompted them. (Acts 2:4)
The Holy spirit is the Advocate: He pleads our cause, for we cannot save
ourselves. We pray that He will make us advocates for the babies, who
cannot speak or write or vote or protest or even pray.

The Fourth Glorious Mystery
The Assumption
You are the glory of are the splendid boast of our people...God is
pleased with what you have wrought. May you be blessed by the Lord Almighty
forever and ever. (Judith 15:9-10)
The Blessed Virgin Mary was taken body and soul into heaven because she
 is the Mother of God. Mother and child are united. The Assumption reminds
us that they belong together. We pray that society will see that it cannot love
women while killing their children, and cannot save children without helping
their mothers. We pray that people will be touched by the pro-life question,
"Why can't we love them both?"

The Fifth Glorious Mystery
The Coronation
A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon
under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. (Revelation 12:1)
Mary is the Queen of the Universe. She is the greatest creature, second only to
 God Himself. The church defends the dignity of women. We pray that
people will understand that to be pro-life means to be pro-woman, and that
to be pro-woman demands that we be pro-life.

Please be an advocate for the unborn, speak up for them, they cannot speak
for themselves.
                                              Blessings and Peace, Sharla

Hello out there! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I wanted to list a few more links that I thought might be helpful. I want people to be able to find the information they need. There is so  much help out there, so many people out there who do care. I care. Please seek those who truly want what is best for you in life. If you are pregnant and feel alone, or you are afraid, reach out to someone who cares about you and your baby. If you can't talk to anyone in your family, talk to someone at your church, if you don't have a church home, then talk to someone at a Pregnancy Help Center. I'm going to list the link for the Pregnancy Help Center here in San Angelo, TX. There is a tab you can click on the home page and if you type in your location, it will bring up a Pregnancy Help or Resource Center in your area. Pregnancy test are free, sonograms are free, they will help you with parenting classes, baby clothes, diapers, free counseling to help you make a decision about whether you feel like you can take care of your baby, or if adoption is better for both of  you. You don't have to face this alone, but let someone help you, who is not in it to make money. The abortion industry is big business, and they are in it to make money. So please, think about where you go and who you talk to for help.

I have other websites listed on my blog, these all have information to help you.

The world we live in today believes that a woman's choice is more important than a baby's life,
and that is a lie. The world we live in today believes "live and let live," unless you are a baby in
your mother's womb. If  you are pregnant, there are two lives to think about now, two lives to
take care of. Please, choose life for your baby. I've talked to women who are still devastated about
an abortion they had years ago. It has taken decades for some women to finally heal after an
abortion. I've read articles, and heard testimonials, I've cried with women as they have shared their stories with me. I write this blog not only to save the baby, but to save the young woman from the heartache, and guilt she feels after having an abortion. No one wants to talk about this subject because it just isn't very comfortable, it is certainly not politically correct unless you are pro-abortion, and people just don't want to get involved. So, here I am, because I truly care, I truly want to make a difference. I want to get the message out there,  abortion is an ugly lie. I'm not saying that choosing adoption for your baby will be easy, and I'm also not saying that raising your baby will be easy. But I believe if you choose life for your baby, once you hold your sweet baby boy or baby girl, in your arms, you will make the right decision for both of you.

One of the definitions of mother in the dictionary is:
To care for or protect as a mother does

A baby's heart start beating just 21 days after conception, listen to your heart, place your hands over your stomach and think about the baby boy or baby girl that is growing inside you, that tiny little life is a miracle, and needs you. Listen to your heart, don't listen to the world. You are strong enough to take care of your baby, and if you choose adoption, you are doing what you feel like is best for your baby. Please choose life for your baby, there are people out there who will help you.

              "For I know well the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,                                  
                plans for welfare and not for woe to give you a future and a hope."
                (Jeremiah 29:11)

Hello out there! A super quick post today - Hey y'all!
One of my granddaughters turned 7 yesterday! We are having a small family birthday party today!

Gotta run, they are here!
                                                        Blessings and Peace!

               Good Morning out there! I only have time for a quick post today.

             This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask
             anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he
         hears us-whatever we ask-we know that we have what we asked of him.
                      1 John 5:14-15

                       You pay God a compliment by asking great things of him.
                                              St. Teresa of Avila

                                            Prayer to End Abortion

                        Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
                       and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
                   I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
                           yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
                                  by the Resurrection of Your Son.
                              I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
                                        Today I commit myself
                                         Never to be silent,
                                         Never to be passive,
                                   Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
                                       I commit myself to be active
                                         in the pro-life movement,
                                      and to never stop defending life
                             Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
                                   and our nation once again becomes
                                     A nation with liberty and justice
                                       not just for some, but for all.
                                   Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

                            I hope you all have a wonderful day! Bye for now, Sharla

Good Morning out there! Life is precious, and not only do I pray for the unborn, I pray for those in war torn countries. Starting my blog has been an amazing experience for me. I'm able to see the different countries that people are from who read my posts. It doesn't specify cities, but it does list how many people from each country have viewed my blog. I'm humbled that anyone reads my blog.
People from Russia and Ukraine have been reading my blog, but I haven't seen either country listed in over two weeks. Because of all the fighting that is going on, I'm worried about them, I hope that they are ok. I just want them to know that I am praying for them and for their families. I don't know their names, I don't know what they look like, but for some reason, they read my blog. Each day I don't see their country listed, I place my hand over the map where it should be colored in and I pray for them.
There  are so many wars going on in our world right now, so much violence.

Dear God, Please watch over all these countries where war has broken out. Please God, protect the innocent people and their families. Please God, open their government's eyes to the devastation that war is causing. Please God, guide their leaders to a peaceful solution. Thank you God, for our many blessings, please be with all those who are in need. Please God, show us, guide us to how we can best help others. You created us all, please help us to love our neighbor, care for one another, and pray for those who seek a better life. In Jesus Name I pray Dear Lord, Amen.

As Catholics, we pray The Divine Mercy Chaplet. This prayer is for the whole world.
It is really beautiful when we sing this Chaplet. (I'm singing this as I'm typing) The refrain goes like
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
If you listen to the Catholic radio station 91.5 FM, they sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet
at 3:00 pm each day.

To pray The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy:
(It is easier to keep up with if you have a rosary, but if you don't, you can count on your fingers.)

1. Begin with the Sign of the Cross, Pray (1) Our Father, (1) Hail Mary and The Apostles Creed.
2. Prayer - (Pray this 1 time) Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for ours sins and those of the whole world.   
3. Pray this refrain 10 times:
    For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
You repeat steps (2) & (3) for a total of (5) times.
4. Conclude with (3 times)
    Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
5. The sign of the cross and Amen.

It is a beautiful, peaceful prayer. I find myself humming or singing it a lot. I also pray it if I wake up during the night.   

May God Bless you and keep you safe where ever you are, where ever you live. May God help us to love and care for one another.

                                             Blessings and Peace,

Good Morning out there! I just have time for a quick post because I'm headed up to my church to help with the Sack Lunch Ministry. An article I submitted was printed in the Standard Times Newspaper yesterday. It was in the Opinion Section, page 4A. I was thrilled that they printed my article pretty much word for word. The title was Stand Against Abortion.
On page 3A, under Local/Texas was the title Planned Parenthood plans $3million campaign.
The 1st paragraph states-The political arm of Planned Parenthood expects to spend $3 million to support Democrats in the 2014 general election...........
I posted a picture with a scale of tax payer dollars that go to Planned Parenthood. The scale starts in 1962 and goes to 2012. For an eye opening experience click on, view my complete profile and then click on posts to see the chart. National Pro-Life Alliance is where I got the picture/poster of this chart. The shocking amount of tax payer dollars that went to Planned Parenthood in 2012 was,
you better sit down for this, $7,000,000,000.00!
In my opinion this means that taking advantage of young women in a crisis pregnancy and our tax payer dollars add up to BIG BUSINESS FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD!
It breaks my heart that my taxes help fund this business of premeditated death. Sometimes I wonder why God has put the pro-life message so heavy on my heart. This morning after I posted the tax chart on face book and there was only 1 like, I had my answer. I am not afraid to speak up, I will speak up, I will not be silent. God has put this on my heart because He knows I will keep trying, I will not get discouraged, I will persevere because the pro-life movement is not just a movement, it is a life and death situation. The lives that are lost if we do not speak up are the lives of innocent babies who cannot speak for themselves. The pro-life movement is truth, the pro-abortion movement is death and deceit. Please stand with me, please speak up for the unborn.
Be not afraid, God is with us. I will close with the first paragraph of my letter, and an intention from the Pro-Life Rosary.

What if? What if we promoted the pro-life message in such a way that everyone got it? That everyone understood that a baby is a baby, not a choice. That even though abortions are legal, no one would choose to have one. That an abortionist would see that he or she is taking a life, instead of saving a life, that instead of being called an abortionist, they would want to be called a doctor.

As Catholics, we pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary on Tuesdays.
The Rosary for the Unborn follow the daily mysteries, but we add special intentions
for the unborn and their mothers.

The First Sorrowful Mystery is: The Agony in the Garden.
The pro-life special intention for this mystery is:
Let us pray for mothers and fathers who are in agony because they are tempted to
abort their child. May they be given the good news that there are alternatives, and
may they make use of the help that is available.

                                       Blessings and Peace,

Good Evening out there! We've been blessed with rain today, and the mild temperatures this summer have been great! As a Catholic, we pray the Luminous Mysteries of the rosary on Thursdays.
I'm going to list the five Luminous Mysteries for the Pro-Life Rosary.

The First Luminous Mystery:
Baptism Of Jesus
And when Jesus was baptized,...the heavens were opened and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and alighting on Him, and lo, a voice from heaven, saying
 "This is my beloved Son," with whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:16-17)

All are called to become adopted sons and daughters of God through baptism.
We pray that children in the womb may be protected, so that they may be born
and welcomed into the Christian community by baptism.

The Second Luminous Mystery:
Wedding At Cana
His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever He tells you."... Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. (John 2:5-7)

 Let us pray for strong marriages,
rooted in the Lord, and open to the gift of new life.

The Third Luminous Mystery:
Proclaiming The Kingdom
"And preach as you go, saying "The kingdom of heaven is at hand." Heal the sick, raise
the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without pay, give without pay."
(Matthew 10:7-8)

Let us pray that these first words of Jesus' public ministry may be heard by all. May they know that the Lord calls them to conversion, and may they experience life-giving repentance.

The Fourth Luminous Mystery:
And as He was praying, the appearance of His countenance was altered and His raiment
became dazzling white. And a voice came out of the cloud saying, "This is My Son,
My chosen; listen to Him!" (Luke 9:29,35)

May the eyes of all people be transformed, that they may see each and every human life
 as a reflection of the glory of God Himself.

The Fifth Luminous Mystery:
Institution Of The Eucharist
And He took bread, and when He had given thanks He broke it and gave it to them,
saying, "This is My body which is given for you.".......And likewise the cup after supper,
saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood."
(Luke 22:19-20)

Let us pray that parents who sacrifice the babies for the sake of themselves may learn
instead to put themselves aside for the sake of their babies.

Praying the Rosary of the Unborn has been a life altering experience for me. I've always been
pro-life, but ever since I began praying the Rosary of the Unborn, my heart has been touched
in way that made me realize just saying I'm pro-life isn't enough.
The scripture from the Wedding at Cana, where Mother Mary says to the servants, "Do
whatever He tells you." I take that to heart, and I know in my heart that He is telling
me to speak up for the unborn.
The scripture from the Transfiguration, God says "This is My Son, My chosen; listen to Him!"
This blog is my way of speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Have a good night. I'll close with a refrain from a song we sing at Mass. Bye for now, Sharla

"Lead me Lord, lead me Lord, by the light of truth, to seek and to find the narrow way.
Be my way, be my truth, be my life my Lord, and lead me Lord today!"

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Good Morning out there! Since last night I've posted three pictures from the National Pro-Life Alliance. They are thought provoking posters/pictures. My comment on the most recent one I posted has been on my mind.
What if? What if we promoted the pro-life message in such a way that everyone got it? That everyone understood that a baby is a baby, not a choice. That even though abortions are legal, no one would choose to have one. That an abortionist would see that he or she are taking a life, instead of saving a life, that instead of being called an abortionist, they would want to be called a doctor. You are probably thinking "dream on sister" and maybe, probably you are right. I just know that right now I feel an urgency about spreading the pro-life message. Maybe it is because of the elections coming up in November, I don't know. I just want to spread awareness about the help that is out there. I want people to know that abortion is not their only option. I placed brochures about adoption in our church vestibule last week. I also carry them with me. In the early morning hours, my husband and I pray for the unborn on the East Coast because we know that abortions are already in progress. We pray throughout the day for all the unborn everywhere, for their mothers and for their fathers to say NO to abortion and YES to life! We pray that the abortionists will walk out and say, NO MORE, I will not take another baby's life, not today, not ever! Please pray with us for the unborn, please pray for the baby girl or baby boy's mother and father, please pray for the abortionists. Please pray for an end to abortion.

                    And when the angel had come to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace,
                     the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women."
                    (Luke 1:28)

                     Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in
                     a loud voice: "Blest are you among women and
                      blest is the fruit of your womb."
                     (Luke 1:41-42)

                                                 Jesus Protect and Save the Unborn!

Good Morning out there! I have so much to say today I'm not sure where to begin! Thinking, thinking, okay! Yesterday I helped host a baby shower, it was wonderful! I love baby showers, there is always so much joy and laughter. This shower was extra special because this is my dear friend's first baby, her parents first grandchild, her brothers first niece. She and her mother, and her grandmother have been hostesses at so many of my grandchildren's showers that we were all thrilled to help with her shower! Presents galore, diapers and wipes, precious bright colored clothes, cake and cookies, coffee and tea, cards, hugs, laughter, celebration, oh how I love baby showers!
Taking care of each other, whether family or friends is what we need to do, what we should want to do. We had so many goodies at the shower that there were many cookies left over, and everyone agreed that those cookies should go to our church's Sack Lunch Ministry today. We give out sack lunches Monday -Friday from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm at our church to help feed the homeless and those who are having hard times. I will take the left over cookies from the shower up to the church this morning so that they can be put in the sack lunches today. Twice a month I help make lunches and hand them out, those who come to get lunches are so appreciative. I'm so thankful our church has this ministry. I take my grandchildren with me, a couple at a time, to help, so that they will grow up understanding that we need to help others, and to be thankful for what they have. They love helping, coloring the sacks, handing out the waters, adding the mayonnaise or mustard packets, and the people love seeing the children, it makes them smile. I'm going to close this part of my post with a poem I made up, not a great poem, but it is from my heart.

                         Gifts from heaven babies are, Gifts from God above,
                            Protect them love them, sing songs of joy
                              New life new life, how precious they are!

The next part of my post is about two short (2-3 minute) videos I saw on face book this weekend. They both showed a sonogram of a baby, showed the baby boy or baby girls movements, talked about the different gestational stages. They were both very well done. Truly beautiful videos about the miracle of life. I cried during both of them, tears of joy because of the beauty of life, tears of sadness because so many will not choose life. I haven't figured out how to download/upload them on my blog, I'm still trying. I have to go now, I've got to get those cookies to the church! I'm closing with a beautiful scripture verse, have a blessed day, and go out of your way to make someone smile today! Bye for now, Sharla

                                       "For I know well the plans I have for you,
                                         declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not
                                         for woe to give you a future and a hope."
                                             (Jeremiah 29:11)

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Good Morning out there! I just tried to upload a video for my blog but it didn't work! I saw this on face book, it was a 2 minute pro-life video asking "what will history say if we stay silent on life?"Rand Paul made the video, and it is amazing. He talks about how as a doctor he has held a tiny 1 lb. premature baby in the palm of his hand. It is a beautiful video, and definitely worth 2 minutes of everyone's time. I will try and figure out how to upload/download whatever it takes, so that I can post it on my blog. I have a busy day planned, so I have to go for now. I'll work on the video post later!
Bye for now, Sharla

                                  "Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days

Hello out there! Just a quick post today.

                                           The Lord your God loves you.
                                                  Deuteronomy 23:5           
                         God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us.
                                                          St. Augustine

What a beautiful, heart warming scripture! I love the way St. Augustine described it. I needed to hear that today, how about you?!

Have a great day! Life is a gift from God, what we choose to do with our life is our gift back to God!

                                                            Bye for now,

Good Morning out there! I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July celebration! We celebrated with our children and grandchildren, we had a good time. I received a large envelope in the mail on Saturday full of pamphlets and brochures from the Gladney Center for Adoption. I am going to take some of them to leave at my parish, Sacred Heart Cathedral. I will keep some in my truck, and some in my purse. I also let people know on face book that I have plenty to share if they would like some for their church. These brochures have all kinds of information for pregnant mothers who may be thinking of adoption as an option. There are also testimonials from young ladies who chose adoption for their baby. These are the titles of the brochures:

Adoption at a Glance
Adoption Choices
Knowing God's Heart for Adoption
My Daughter is Pregnant...Now What?

There are testimonials and information about housing during the mother's pregnancy. They also have the different adoption choices listed.
Text HOPE to 43648 (Msg & data rates may apply)
Text CHRISTIANADOPTION to 43648 to speak with a counselor. (Standard text message rates apply.)

Being adopted at birth has been such a blessing for me because I was given life. The reality is, if I had been conceived just 9 years later, after Roe v Wade, instead of life, I might have been given a death sentence. I could have been viewed as a choice instead of as a baby. What we choose to do with our life is up to us. I choose to promote life, promote adoption as the life option. I choose to try and help people. God has given me this heart that sometimes feels like it is going to come out of my chest if I don't speak up for these babies, I don't know how to explain it, I just keep trying. Please help me with this life message. Please help me promote adoption as a life option. Please see that babies are Gifts from God. I love this bible verse that is on the back of the one of the pamphlets.
 I will close with it for today, bye for now, Sharla

"He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. Praise the Lord!"
Psalm 113:9

Good Morning out there! For those of you who have been reading my posts, you know that I started my blog to help people find the information they may need, or to share it with someone who needs it.
Being pro-life means a lot of things to me. I care about people, I want to help people, I want to be a voice for the unborn because they can not speak for themselves. I want to be an advocate for them. I also care about their mothers, and I want them to know that there are life options that are not talked about enough. To be able to help people I feel like they have to know what  you stand for, and that you are knowledgeable about the information they are seeking. I have a lot of pro-life links and resources on my blog so that information about adoption, pregnancy help centers, post-abortion healing for women and men, is easy to access.
 I finally got a face book page a couple of weeks ago. Being on face book has been an eye opening experience for me. I love seeing pictures of my family and friends, I enjoy hearing about their lives. I've posted some pro-life information but I feel more comfortable writing about pro-life issues on my blog, it just seems more personal. I know that sounds crazy because anyone can see it, but I also realize that those of you who read my posts read them because you want to.
I have a bunch of pro-life t-shirts that I wear. One says "Pro-Life to the Max" on front, another one says "Choose Life", I have one that says "Life Guard" with a cross between the words that has the precious baby feet on the cross. Most of these shirts say things about protecting the unborn, helping pregnant mothers, etc. on the back. I proudly wear these shirts because the sayings on these shirts are what I believe, they are what I stand for. I also have a bumper sticker on my truck that says "Pro Woman, Pro Child, Pro-Life."  You are probably wondering why I'm telling you this, well it is because I'm always ready to answer questions if people say something about my shirt, or my bumper sticker, and people have.
I received a phone call the other day from someone who got my name and number from someone else
because they told them I would have the information they were looking for. I felt so humbled when I spoke to this person, that they called me. I gave them all the information I had. This just re-emphasized, how important it is to let people know what you believe in.
I pray that God will always give me the courage to stand up for what I believe in, no matter where I am and on all social networking sites. The main definition of being pro-life to me means love, and babies are love, they just need to be loved. Bye for now, Sharla

                         Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the
                           renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is
                         the will of God-what is good and acceptable and perfect.
                                                                Romans 12:2

                                                         We cannot help conforming
                                                          ourselves to what we love.
