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!
On July 15, 2017, around 100 people gathered deep in a park in St. Louis, surrounded by balloons, laughing children, and lots of trees. Some of them had ridden over 100 miles that day, some were just sweaty because it was warm outside. The 2017 Biking for Babies Celebration of Life had begun.
“Because within the incidents and outside of the incidents (including severe thunderstorms, broken bikes, and nonexistent roads), there was immeasurable beauty, joy, trust, hope, and radical love. The fact that we were able to feel the sun, to choose to overcome, to be joyful—those moments reminded us of the beauty of our life, and we were invited not to take them for granted.” Read Sarah’s reflection on this year’s Eastern Ride!
“13 Reasons Why” is extremely popular right now among teens and tweens who have heard the buzz and just want to be “in the know.” But our PR coordinator Ashley (and thousands of others across the nation) fear this show has missed the mark. The takeaway message should really be focused on issues surrounding sexuality and human dignity.
Divine Mercy Sunday was two days ago, and for many of us, it gave us a moment to reflect on our sinfulness but more importantly, God’s loving mercy! Part of this is trusting in the Lord’s goodness. Not all of us are willing to take someone at their word, especially when it seems too-good-to-be-true.
Happy Easter, from our family to yours! As Christians, we get to celebrate the Risen Lord for even longer than the secular culture asks us to. What exactly does that look like for you? The B4B Leadership Team shares their favorite parts of the promise of Easter.
Each of us has a favorite story; whether it’s a movie, a book, an oral tradition, or a play, there is some story that holds a special place, if not in our heart, then in our memory. The plot twists are captivating, and we desire to find that ultimate resolution. Read on to see why the smallest detail in Sarah’s favorite story continually changes her life.
