Pregnancy Resource Center Liaison
Biking for Babies
Have you ever prayed to find your purpose in life? So many times we pray for health, protection, change, healing etc., but never want ourselves to be the answer. While studying at UW- La Crosse, I decided to answer my own prayers to end abortion by saying YES to joining the prolife movement in 2013. I have since been a proud member of Biking for Babies, taking on various roles. I currently am a rider and the Pregnancy Resource Center Liaison. My job is to find and cultivate relationships with PRCs around the country, thus spreading word of their existence and life-saving work to everyone who comes to know Biking for Babies. Beyond this organization, I also am a Group Exercise Coordinator and Personal Trainer for Green Bay and Appleton, Wisconsin YMCAs. My main purpose is to influence others to establish healthy habits and healthy relationships within their lives; something we should all strive for every day.
I have biked 7 years, equaling close to 7,000 miles ridden on behalf of Christ and pregnancy resource centers across the nation. But there is something you must know about me: I am not a cyclist.
While I may not be the fastest runner or strongest biker, I put it all out there. I know have fought for my brothers and sisters. So will you be able to stand up and fight good battle; will you be willing to go through a day that might not be all hearts and sparkles; will you get down and dirty to protect life? Come and join us!
At that point in time a girl from the group asked this question to her friends: How can we as Catholics preach a pro-life stance, but then we don’t actually do anything to facilitate these women to be pro-life? I asked God in my head, “You’re making this my job, aren’t you?” It was almost sarcastic. I then looked down at my phone… And I watched it die in my hand…
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7) Except… There are still women who feel lost, who feel uncared for, who feel shamed, who feel trapped, and, ultimately, feel hopeless.
