|Is it time to tell your story?|
Deanna Wallace has a story of rescued lives--maybe you have a story that should be told as well.
Jesus often taught the crowds using parables. A well-told story engages not only our minds, but our emotions. Often it is the stories illustrating a pastor's sermon that have the most effective impact in our lives for positive and lasting change.

If you have a story that may help someone make a life affirming decision during pregnancy or at the end of life, please consider telling your story in writing or via video or audio for us to share with our website and email viewers and readers.

All three children were adopted by one loving couple who cared for them, guided and taught them, and loved them together as family. Wallace shares the end of the story in these words:
