“I came that they may have life and have it to the full.” John 10:10
Sunday, January 17, 2016 marked Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS), a day celebrating life placed on the calendar that falls closest to the 1973 Roe vs. Wade US Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Like SOHLS, Kindred Life Ministries responds to those courageous mothers and fathers who bravely chose life for their children. Kindred Life meets the emotional and practical needs of teen parents while pointing the way to Jesus so that they can live abundantly now and forever. We want teen parents to not only survive parenthood but thrive in it. For a young mother or father who is still in adolescence, adjusting and learning the many roles he/she must play can be overwhelming even when other family members may help share child-rearing responsibilities.
Kindred Life offers a safe and loving Christian environment for teen mothers as well as teen fathers and grandparents to grow and learn biblical principles in their respective roles. As we begin 2016, let us recommit ourselves to not only focus on the birth part of the pro-life movement but the life part as well. We invite you to join us as we partner with pregnancy centers and like-ministries that serve teen parents and children.
Do you wonder how you can make a difference in the lives of young parents and children? Is your desire to show teen families the way to Jesus so they can have life to the fullest? Are you wondering how you can take deliberate steps as a pro-life individual? Kindred Life invites you to serve with us as we educate, mentor, counsel and encourage teen parents and their families to live the abundant life Christ promises.
Here are just a few ideas to help you celebrate life:
- Pray for those who are facing an unplanned pregnancy as well as those who are serving pregnant and parenting teen mothers and children.
- Get involved in serving a teen mom or teen dad and their child at Kindred Life Ministries – learn more about volunteer opportunities here
- Tell/Share our ministry with others who need services or with those who desire to serve young families.
