Biking for Babies
As this year’s president, I intend to lead this magnificent leadership team into our nation’s culture of death and leave trails of the culture of Life all over the place (imagine a pro-life, flying-V from the Mighty Ducks)! I am a junior high youth minister from the lovely and humid state of Alabama (War Eagle), and my Instagram account features too many group selfies, God’s Beauty in nature, and pictures of my incessant intake of coffee. Recognizing every individual’s dignity and worth is a message I try to share daily, and Biking for Babies offers me a unique platform on which to do so. I head up Biking for Babies’ social media accounts and work closely with Jimmy in Fundraising and Kevin in Recruiting; visit our media page to see what good work has been done!

“Rolling through the hills along the Mississippi River, over twenty young adults pursued some of their greatest passions: cycling and athleticism, spreading the pro-life message, and wearing sunscreen. Okay, maybe wearing sunscreen is not necessarily a “passion,” but one certainly gets passionate about NOT being sunburnt by the hot sun in southern United States.”
Like most pregnancy resource centers, The Morning Center strives “to provide high quality maternity care to underserved women.” But then Korey kept talking about that idea, about providing the same level care that a normal suburban mom would receive if she went to a medical clinic, and I was hooked.
We see brokenness in our world all the time; there’s no doubt about it. And most everyone desires to help someone in some way, whether we are Catholic, Lutheran, Christian, or anything else. We search for the greatest need and say, “There is where I want to give back.” Philosophers, teachers, rabbis, preachers, monks and nuns, inspirational speakers–all of them have offered their own insight to the world’s greatest need by how they dedicate their life. But to quote one of the most quotable humans of all time: “But I shall show you a still more excellent way.”
