Adeena's Story

“Adeena” visited Life Forward’s new Springdale Center where she was served by Hannah, our Sonographer. After her pregnancy test, Hannah performed a 3D/4D ultrasound and Adeena saw her baby and heard his heartbeat for the first time.

Adeena shared that she is a Muslim and confided in Hannah about some of her personal struggles. At the end of her session, Hannah offered Adeena a Bible which she accepted with excitement and eagerness. She said she plans to read it. Hannah also had the privilege of closing their time with prayer.

Life Forward continues serving clients like Adeena looking to impact their life journeys. Our clients regularly share their appreciation that they don’t feel judged or pressured to change their lives in order to receive our services. All that we do is rooted in the grace of Jesus Christ. Our intent is to build relationships  that open doors to sharing the hope of the Gospel with our clients. 

Please pray for Hannah and our Client Services Team as they seek to serve women like Adeena to help them make life-affirming decisions through God’s love.

Amanda's Story

“I don’t want to see that,” I said as I pushed Helen’s hand away when she tried to show me a model of what my baby looked like in the womb.

I didn’t want to see it because I didn’t want any of this to be real. I was overwhelmed and hurting. I couldn’t believe that I was pregnant again. I already have two children. I didn’t know how I was going to manage taking care of another child all by myself. Abortion seemed like my best option.

Helen listened to me with great compassion. She reminded me about God’s goodness and His plan for me and my children. Her words were just what I needed to hear.

At the end of our meeting, I asked Helen if I could see the model baby. I held it in my hand and we prayed together. At that moment, I knew I couldn’t end my baby’s life.

I’m still really scared. Being a single mom of three children seems too much for me to handle. But, I am also hopeful. I remind myself daily that I am not alone. Thankfully, God is with me and so is Life Forward.

Faith and Dedication: Robert and Tiffany's Story

Dear Friends,

Every day in my ministry at Life Forward, I have the privilege of working directly with clients like “Robert” and “Tiffany.” Robert’s perseverance to make it to Upward sessions at Life Forward was inspirational. Even on the evenings when he was just getting off work and on his way to another job after class, he made it a priority. Robert expressed numerous times his desire to provide for his family and to be a good father.

Robert and Tiffany were so eager to learn all that they could about parenting their baby that they also enrolled in individual parenting classes. During their first session of Earn While You Learn, we began to explore prayer and inviting Jesus into some of their daily challenges and decisions. By the end of the session, I was able to share the Gospel with them and Tiffany eventually rededicated her life to Christ.

I invite you to join me in praying for Robert and Tiffany as they grow in faith and into their new role as parents. Thank you for your continued support and commitment to helping women and their families make life-affirming decisions through God’s love.

Sincerely,

Lawanda McCoy, Client Educator
