The Scarlett Letter

October 30, 2018

Even in this age of sexual revolution, it still appears that women are the ones left to carry the unplanned, and unwanted pregnancy all by herself. Even though she did not get this way by herself, bulging out in front of her is the evidence of her mistake, her error, and in some circles, her…

5 Simple Tricks to Help Alleviate Nausea During Pregnancy

October 9, 2018

Pregnancy is an amazing time in a woman’s life, but first trimester morning sickness can make it hard to focus on the incredible miracle your body is creating.

12 Famous People Who Lived!

October 3, 2018

Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, more than 55 million lives have been lost; 55,772,015 to be exact! I love it when mothers have the courage to tell their beloved children that they almost made this decision of loss, but choose life instead for their babies. Even more precious is when these children tell…

Running Weary

September 25, 2018

It was the day of the annual 5K to support our local crisis pregnancy center. Each participant can choose whether they want to walk or run. My oldest daughter chose to run.

Dealing with Loss

September 11, 2018

How do we deal with loss? I’ll tell you how I deal with it: NOT well. I guess a more accurate way of putting it is that I feel lost. When I lose a loved one, I feel as though the compass of my heart is spinning around and around in circles, with no hope…

We Need More Information

September 6, 2018

Yesterday I was having a conversation with a friend who shared she had an abortion in 1979, just six years after legalization.  She had no support and no one to talk to.  Her parents wanted her to have an abortion.  She had very little information except that abortion was legal, so therefore it must be…

“Out of Hiding”

August 21, 2018

Steffany Gretzinger’s song “Out Of Hiding” has been stuck in my head, and my heart, for the past week. The lyrics are soaked in biblical truths and share a message of hope and restoration. I believe it is also very fitting for the mission of Chester County Women’s Services so I thought it would be…

The Size of a Nickel

August 15, 2018

In between the birth of my two children I had a miscarriage. This was such a painful experience both physically and emotionally. It was November, and in our minds we had another baby celebrating the holidays with us. When the pain and bleeding started, we called our doctor. I was told I was probably having…
