As we move into this New Year, I pray that we will always be ready to move out with God. There are times when we need to stay where we are and there are times when we need to move forward with God, even without knowing all the details of the journey.
Loving and Caring has been in existence since 1984, when President Reagan mentioned us in a talk he gave. We got a call from the White House that this was going to happen, and when it did our entire world changed.
We had founded the House of His Creation in 1973, packing our bags in our home town, Washington, D.C., and moving into a farm house in Pennsylvania. God had given us a vision as youth leaders to care for pregnant women. This happened because a young pregnant college student came to our home as a visitor to our youth group meeting. The rest is history. We took her in and as a result of an amazing journey with her, our lives were changed forever.
We packed our bags, knowing we wanted to devote our lives to these precious women and the pro-life movement. And so it has been.
When we left House of His Creation in 1984, we knew we were to help open homes and help pro-life pregnancy centers and ministries around the country. At the time we were running three homes, and were presently living in our new adoption home for women who placed their children. We found that they needed to be in a place where they could have a strong support system and be with each other. We had five women living with us.
Today I live in a duplex near my oldest daughter with Shelly, my youngest daughter who is mentally challenged and works in food services at the hospital.
We have moved Loving and Caring’s offices to a new location and the address is P.O. Box 226, New Holland, Pa 17557. My email is email@example.com. We are located in the office building of Quality Custom Cabinetry. It is a beautiful setting with windows that look out on the beautiful farm country nearby. Our office number is 717-431-9070. I would love to hear from you.
Soon my bags will be packed for various speaking engagements and I would love to see you.
