Why is the Church Hiding?

I’ve worked on collecting signatures for various Right to Life petitions for years. The last few years, many who have worked on these campaigns have noticed how difficult it has been to engage our own prolife churches in this cause. Some pastors feel they don’t want to hurt those who have had abortions in the past, others … Read More

One Brief, Shining Moment

In ancient history, some cultures sacrificed children to their “gods”. Succeeding generations were appalled by this practice and wondered how anyone could do that. Fast forward to 1973, when the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of Roe v. Wade, and abortion-on-demand became legal nationwide. Our culture allowed the sacrifice of unborn children to … Read More

Tribute to a Wounded Warrior

On September 20, an 83-year-old woman was shot with a gun while passing out pamphlets on Proposal 3, which will be on the ballot in the November 8 election.  I don’t know this brave woman, but I share the history behind her zeal to inform voters about a destructive proposal.

Our Daughters Deserve Better

My daughter wants her ears double pierced. We have had many discussions about the best place for the procedure, someplace reputable and clean; when to have it done, so it doesn’t interfere with her sports seasons; and risks and restrictions, because infections happen and lake swimming is not allowed.

The Staunch Ideology of Abortion

Several years ago, we were setting up a display for the Women’s Expo at DeVos Place. Although only 10 feet x 10 feet, we were making our booth interactive, colorful, inviting, and informative. Not an easy task, but we had three full days to engage thousands of West Michigan women.

Life is Never a Mistake

My father often tells me, “Words tell, but stories teach.” What I am about to tell you is true, and though I have kept it brief, my hope is you will learn something from it.

The Ultimate Betrayal

It took me 16 years and a second abortion to regret my first. I was raised in church. While growing up, my mom taught me how to put on the Armor of God, but the world waged war against my morals and, for a period of time, the world won.

The First Responsibility

I am the proud father of two wonderful kids. Being “Dad” to Javen and Kendall is one of my greatest blessings and is a responsibility I embrace whole-heartedly. Even during my wife’s pregnancies I started to think about the role of being provider and protector of my new family.

No One was Clapping

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news that abortion was now legal. It was 1973, and I was a senior in high school. The entire student body was seated in the auditorium for a school function when they announced over the intercom that the U.S. Supreme Court had just legalized abortion.

Boldness Mixed with Naivete

I am a firm believer in sharing the prolife message in simple ways … bumper stickers, checks, e-mail signature lines, and T-shirts. I am not, however, particularly comfortable in all situations wearing a prolife message emblazoned on my body.
