I don’t usually share requests of this nature over my blog, but this particular one has hit closer to home than most. Since my husband Kevin and I have experienced the tremendous stress of having unexpected, really high medical bills, we have a great deal more compassion for others facing such hard times. Though we regularly give to church, various charitable organizations, and help family and friends in need, there was a time when we found ourselves struggling to pay the bills.
I am still absolutely amazed at how people came together and were there for us. I’m not sure how we would have gotten through that tough time of surgeries, a parent’s funeral, unemployment, and illness if we had not had people of faith to lift us up in prayer and step in when we’d run out of physical, emotional, and/or spiritual resources. Sometimes, we’re given a chance to give back to people who are always giving so much of themselves. This is one of those times.
How Big Is a Mother’s Heart?
Sara is a pro-life advocate, mother of three daughters, and has served as the Campaign Director for the 40 Days for Life in Alexandria for a number of years. When Sara and her family found out about a mother and daughter seeking refuge from a foreign country where Christians are being persecuted, they welcomed them to stay and live with them for a few months. On another occasion, an African mother who was pregnant found out that their family is pro-life. This woman with no knowledge of English and no family or friends lived with the Dinas for a year.
My mom, a pro-life advocate, mother of three daughters, has served as the Campaign Director for the 40 Days for Life in Richmond. When women in crisis and their children have needed a safe place to stay, my mom has opened the doors to her home and invited them in. Some people stayed for a matter of days, others for weeks, some for many months.
Clearly some mothers have hearts that reach far beyond the love and relationships in her own household. A nurturing wife, mother, volunteer, Respect Life leader, pro-life advocate, and friend is a tremendous blessing to her family as well as her community. Let’s do what we can to support these remarkable mamas!
