All In

All In

In this time, we must pray that our missionaries are “all in” for the entire season. No matter the inconvenience and no matter the cost. Not because we wish hardship on our missionaries, but because we know all too well that the Devil will try to make us bow out. He will try and make us fear for the comforts our missionaries are forfeiting.

The Reason for Our Hope

The Reason for Our Hope

This time of year we find ourselves full of hope: we just experienced the birth of our Savior and celebrated joyfully with our families with rich food, generous gifts and special time. It’s “the most wonderful time of the year” and we try to remember that as we run around searching for the best gift or making that treat someone loves. It truly is an extraordinary season that seems to fill our spiritual cups for the ups and down of the year that will follow.

Unplanned and Unexpected

Unplanned and Unexpected

This Christmas season, I am so grateful for the gift of counselors, medical staff, and volunteers at pregnancy resource centers who help moms find support and resources to answer their immediate “hows.” My heart is filled with joy at the thought of women being able to put aside significant fears and concerns in order to enjoy their pregnancy because of these centers.

Giving Your First Fruits

Giving Your First Fruits

If we invite the Lord into our finances, it naturally shifts us from thinking about ourselves, to thinking about others. Giving Tuesday is a good day for all of us to take an honest look at our finances. Have I ever actually calculated what 10% of my income is?

Family – Reflection on the 2019 Executive Team Retreat

Family – Reflection on the 2019 Executive Team Retreat

If you have family members that you do not see often, you know the routine: a lot of hugs, a lot of laughs, a lot of discussions, no sleep, and leaving feeling like you could’ve spent a whole week with those people. It was no different for the Executive Team’s meeting this past month. As a former long-time missionary, this sentiment does not stay at the level of the Executive Team but penetrates throughout the entire organization and it is this Christian family model that makes it possible for each missionary to cross the finish line in St. Louis every year.

Learning How to Love

Learning How to Love

[On the ride,] I was able to see each of the other missionaries love these women and babies so much that they would make sacrifices, and offer up their time and sufferings to battle the culture of death and work to renew the culture of life. If you want to be able to experience the love of Christ in a deeper way and learn how to put your own needs and desires aside to love others more like Him, then being a Biking for Babies missionary is for you!

Joy Follows Trial

Joy Follows Trial

“I don’t remember how many water bottle drops we did or what all the scenery was like on the many miles between Tylertown, MS and St. Louis, MO, but when I think about Biking for Babies, I remember the community and the laughs we shared.” Connor invites you to reflect on the joys and trials in your everyday life.

What’s Holding You Back?

What’s Holding You Back?

“Looking around I was reminded that the Pro-Life movement will be victorious because nothing can destroy that joy. If the ride was impossible, if asking people for money made me so uncomfortable, and if the daily training and formation was sometimes too much, then why am I now so excited to ride again? Even after the ride, my “why” continues to grow, and after all of the struggles with training and fundraising, the only thing left is joy.”
