A Word From Our Area Site Director
Blessings to you from the Antioch location of Kindred Life Ministries! I am Sarah Love and I have recently accepted the position of Antioch Program Director. I’m so excited to begin with our families.
I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Bethel College, Indiana. Most of my 20’s I spent living overseas as a missionary including (3) years in Kenya as a teacher at a boarding school and (1) year in Albertville, France studying French full-time and thoroughly enjoying the cheese and pastries. I’m eager to get to know our young families and our team in Antioch. I look forward to our great adventure ahead!
If I can help in any way, or you have any questions or if you are looking for a place to serve as a volunteer, please contact me at 847-338-8587 or Sarah@KindredLife.org

Host Church Spotlight
St. Mark Lutheran Church in Lindenhurst
The Antioch Program at Kindred Life wants to take a moment and acknowledge to thank our host church.
Pastor Terry Breum and the congregation at St. Mark are passionate about the sanctity of human life and supporting young parents who choose to give life and parent their children. For several years now they have graciously opened their doors and provided our Antioch Area Program a home.

This year’s Program Volunteer of the Year is Anne McArtney. Anne began volunteering with us three years ago as a one on one teen mentor; first to Justine and now Anne. She jumped into mentoring with with her whole heart and has richly blessed us all! She went above and beyond for the young parents, having them over for lunch, introducing them to her family and regularly checking in. She has also has opened her home to the entire Antioch program and has hosted amazing tea parties.
She courageously and graciously shares the truth and grace of Jesus with each teen parent. This past month Anne and Alyssa have begun attending an Alpha Bible study together.
When I think of Anne McArtney, I can’t help but remember something she said that first year after a difficult Life Education Group meeting. “Sometimes people are rough on the outside, maybe they don’t look like our preconceived ideas of what should be. But aren’t we all a glorious mess in need of a Savior? Isn’t loving them where they are at and speaking the truth what Jesus would do?”
Thank you Anne for all you do for these young families and also for doing what Jesus would do!
