A Shower of Support

A large part of our ministry is throwing baby showers. This might surprise you, but some of the women who come to our centers do not have family support for their new babies. Sometimes, the family is not excited about the pregnancy, the significant other is not supportive of the mom’s choice to keep the baby, or the new mom simply doesn’t have anyone to host a baby shower for her.

That’s where we come in!

We want to show encouragement to the young woman who just found out she was pregnant. Baby showers can supply moms-to-be with the basic items they need to care for their little one. Something as simple as a baby shower can give a new mom confidence to properly care for her child.

Avrie came to Life Centers looking for support and information. She is excited to meet her son, Alexander, very soon, and says she will be bringing him into the center to meet everyone!

Recently, Burge Terrace Baptist Church hosted a baby shower for Austin, Avrie, and baby Alexander. More than fifty men, women, and children were in attendance to show love to this couple and their baby. Baby Alexander will be well supplied for his first year because of the outpouring support shown to Avrie and Austin.

 

 

 

If you are interested in hosting a baby shower email, info@lifecenters.com. The pregnancy center in your area will connect you with a client in need, and you can host the event at your church or local pregnancy center.

Save The Date! Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2017


Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.

With all the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two days focused on sales and big profits for retailers everywhere, why not wait until Giving Tuesday to give back to local causes that are important to you?

What is #GivingTuesday?
Giving Tuesday will be on November 28th this year. According to givingtuesday.org, it is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Our Goal
 Life Centers’ goal is to raise $9,000.

What are we doing with the money?
All of the money Life Centers raises on Giving Tuesday will go toward Baby Bundles. $60 pays for one Baby Bundle, and provides a mother with hope and confidence to keep her baby. $9,000 will provide 150 Baby Bundles to be given to expectant mothers right around the holidays.

What are Baby Bundles?
Baby Bundles consist of diapers, wipes, formula, clothes, blankets, and other necessities a new baby would need. Often times, the women who come into our centers fear they will not be able to provide for a new baby. These Baby Bundles give women hope. They show support. They save lives.

Popeyes Restaurants
This year, Popeyes has partnered with Life Centers for #GivingTuesday! The 14 local Popeyes restaurants will be donating one-third of our $9,000 goal. When you give, Giving Tuesday gives back! Popeyes is providing a coupon that you can download and use when you give to Life Centers on Giving Tuesday, November 28.

Your Pledge
Make the pledge today that you will reserve $60 to donate to Life Centers on November 28th. #ChooseCompassion with Life Centers and truly make a difference this holiday season.

There are three easy ways to give:

  1. Text to give by texting @LC to the number 52014
  2. Visit our website, www.lifecenters.com, and there will be a Giving Tuesday donation page on November 28. The page will not be available before that date.
  3.  By check. Make the check payable to Life Centers and mail to 3901 West 86th Street, Suite 111, Indianapolis, IN 46268

“I feel like there is a fire inside of me where there was once only ashes.”

The following is a real text message that was sent to a volunteer at one of our centers from a client. This client had been dealing with the pain of abortion and was introduced to our post-abortion recovery program, SOAR, spiritually oriented abortion recovery. It is completely humbling.


“This is going to be super long, and out of nowhere, but I’m just sitting here thinking so I’m going to type it out as best I can.

I’m thinking of how I will never find the words to be able to tell you how truly thankful I am for you. God’s love shines so brightly through you and it cut through the darkest places of my mind and heart. Places so dark, I didn’t even know they were there. And I didn’t even know how sad I was until that sadness was stripped away, little by little, all because you cared enough to introduce me to SOAR. And you cared enough to love me through the worst, ugliest, messiest moments of my life. And love like that can only come from Jesus. It has shown me how I’m supposed to love others.

Thank you for letting His love break through the walls that I had built around my heart. Thank you for the ability to laugh so hard I cry. Thank you for letting me be unapologetically myself. And for proving time and time again that you will always be there. I think of all of this every time I put a little more effort in to each day. It sounds so dumb, but I shower more. I pluck my eyebrows. I brush my teeth every day. I started flossing. All of this is so normal to most people, but I had stopped caring. And now I care again. I feel like there is a fire inside of me where there was once only ashes. I want to do better and be better, and live a life that shines for God like yours does. Thank you for being you. I truly mean that.”
