A sold-out crowd was on hand to hear local author, Mary Jo Thayer, launch her first novel, Close to the Soul.
Spring into Life, a new event sponsored by Grand Rapids Right to Life, was held on Thursday, May 20, at the beautiful Union Pavilion at Railside.
Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, dinner, and an inspiring talk from Thayer about her prolife journey and the challenges and blessings that were part of her writing and publishing experience.
Josh Volk, committee chairman and emcee, welcomed everyone and spoke about the importance of being actively and passionately prolife.
Laura Alexandria, president, spoke about the need for every person to do one more thing to grow the prolife movement in Grand Rapids.
Following the event, attendees had an opportunity to purchase prolife items, learn more about Grand Rapids Right to Life, and buy a signed copy of Thayer’s book.
