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?

We get too busy to see anything but the finish line of one project and the starting line of the next. We miss out on the moments in between or get too stressed to enjoy them. ..In my youth group program, I have a rule when we meet: be here. For them, that means, put your phones away. But for me, that means invest in what’s in front of you, because relationships matter.
“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.
