Patty and I stood on the sidewalk of the Fort Lauderdale Women's Center calling the young woman to come and speak with us. She was kind, but hesitated to come forward. I cried, "Do you see my shirt? I'm a MOM of 8 and I want to give you a gift!" I then asked her her name. LaQueen shyly walked over as Patty and I began to speak with her about her reason for visiting the clinic. She assured us she wasn't planning to have an abortion, she'd already had one but just came for birth control. I shared my story of losing my second child due to BC. We asked if we could pray for her then once again, I asked if she'd accept my gift. She accepted our prayers but respectfully turned down my offer. We said our goodbyes and went on our way.
Not even two minutes later, LaQueen made a u-turn and drove to our tent, adjacent to the clinic and said, "you have a shirt for me?" I hurried to my purse and quickly grabbed my last M.O.M Tee. She carefully studied it then said, "this is beautiful." I let her know that she was, too. We spoke a minute more about her purpose and value when she finally left. That moment was what I'd prayed for earlier in the day. I wanted to impact a M.O.M by giving her a simple gift with an incredible message. God heard my cry and sent LaQueen.
The conversation surrounding life is one that brings about great hostility or great joy. As a MOM I know the value speaking life to the woman who is afraid to carry her child can have. Our MOM Mission is about joining and blessing MOMs-to-be. We want to distribute a gift bag to MOMs which will include: (1) My Ovaries Matter Tee & (1) 31 Pamphlet- Biblical Insights for the Modern MOM.
We will place a MOM gift bag in the hands of mothers at abortion clinics who are willing to reconsider aborting their little one(s). We believe the impact of having one of our tees will tear down the walls of defense assuring each MOM that we sincerely care about them. But we need your support.
As we work alongside Sidewalk Advocates and 40 Days to Life in our local area, we ask that you would pray for us to help many MOMs choose life. We also ask you to give a financial contribution to our Campaign so we can get as many MOM Gift Bags into the hands of these precious mothers. We believe that our My Ovaries Matter message will stir the nation to think about the value of MOMs and their unborn in a new light. Please choose from our options below your level of support today. Thank you for making an impact in the life of a MOM!
