Pro-Life Wednesday: How some Coffee can save a life! Save the Stork!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog


When we started our business, Hair Bows 4 Life,  7 years ago,  our main goal really was to bring awareness to the beauty of LIFE .  We promised to donated at least 10% of each of our sales back into pro-life organizations that are at the front line of this war against the unborn.  We have estimated about a thousand or  more in donations. Now, that is really not a lot.  But it is something. Our business has had many growing pains and for few years it almost seem dead.  If you don’t give it water (love, time, hard work), it’s not going to grow.

Something happen this past April that has brought new life back into our small business. Or more like  the breath of the Holy Spirit came to bring this business back to life.  So we started to work at it hard, still working hard and  done a lot in these few months.  We gave it a new face-lift (no, seriously, we got a new cute spoke person) by updating the  website and bow style. We added more social media outlets such as this blog , twitter, Instagram, and added life to facebook page.  We actual have a business plan (who knew you should have a business plan… lol  ).   

 You see in April, I got a copy of a book, Business Boutique: A Woman’s Guide for Making Money Doing What She Loves  and started listening to Christy Wright’s  podcast and started to believe that Yes, it is possible to have a successful business so that we can do our “WHY”.   Our main ” WHY” behind this never-ending work is to promote the Gospel of LIFE all over the world.  We can’t support these organizations and others without making our business a serious ones. It was time to move away from it being a hobby.

God inspired me 7 years ago to start this, to bring sweet bows with saints and our Blessed Mother to heads of little girls all over as well promoting the beauty of the unborn!  He will ask me, what did I do , how well did I do what I was asked of.   

The reason why I am explaining  ourselves to you is that  we will be sharing with you on Pro-Life Wednesday , our Pro-Life Organization of the week. We will run it for two weeks  from a Wednesday to a Wednesday,  and whatever we make in sells, they will get a % .   We want to share with you our WHYs.   So that you will see these organizations that we are giving to.   There are so many amazing organizations that are working so hard in so many ways to defend LIFE at all stages!   

This week we bring you some coffee with a stork.

 

 

Have you seen these Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis vans?  They look amazing.  Well, some are being use for amazing work as in the Save the Storks Vans.  These vans are equipped with exam table, restroom, multiple seats for counseling, work space for sonogram machine and technician, multiple monitors and media inputs, a built-in iPad dock, internet connection, soft lighting, a mini refrigerator, air conditioning, and plenty of storage space.   

Mercedes-Benz works with Save the Stork in an exclusive contract  to build mobile pregnancy centers using a Sprinter chassis. Good job, Mercedes-Benz!

Save the Storks helps pregnancy centers get out and be mobile to help reach more mothers. To show these moms that there is more options than abortion.  Their mission is amazing:

We exist to partner with pregnancy resource centers and give abortion-vulnerable women a choice that will change their lives forever. We partner with resource centers all over the nation, providing them with powerful tools and training to more effectively connect with those women in their communities. With the support of people like you, we’ve funded 54 buses (35 are on the road and another 19 in production), and saved over 1,000 babies.

 

 

This amazing organization started with a couple,  Joe and Ann Baker, who vision  was to have mobile medical units across country to serve those women who were vulnerable to abortions due to the fact they were not given many options. When they see their babies on that screen majority of them choose LIFE. 

Their vision is  simple yet genius:  To have  a mobile medical unit equipped with a counseling area and a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine, which allows pregnancy centers to show mothers an image of their baby.  They want women to receive follow-up support with their local pregnancy centers  so they make sure centers own  and operate these vehicles as affiliates of Save the Storks.

They sell their own coffee !! Who doesn’t love coffee. I live on coffee!   They select beans from around the world that makes a flavorful and smooth cup. They make sure they know where the beans are coming from as they have visited these farms. They make sure they are sourced in a way that honors the local growers and harvesters as well. Part of the proceeds of the sale of coffee go towards

 helping moms make life-affirming decisions for their families and fueling a new generation of individuals passionate about the pro-life cause.

When you answer the call from God, He makes big things happen!  So please check them out , if you can donate directly to them .  We need more vans out in the front line fighting this war on LIFE.

We want to introduce our two new Pro-Life products that has been in the works and finally made it out to the store.  Now, there is something for the whole family to wear!

After answering the call of demand, we just came out with a line of Boy’s Bow Tie which also includes this red Pro-Life awareness bow tie. It is made with burlap ribbon attach to an alligator clip making it  easy to attach to dress shirt. There is a tiny silver-plated feet in a corner. This size represent the actually size of a 10-week baby in the womb. Amazing!

The red is to represent the blood that has been lost in the innocence of the unborn and their mothers.

We also came out with another new Pro-Life product for moms, grandmothers, all women, our Precious Life Lily Pin .  This lily flower has  a golden-plated precious feet center which it is attached on a broochel locked pin.

  

Please pray and fast to end abortion.  Please love, be compassion and take some type of action.

 

With His Merciful Love,

Pro-Life Wednesday: Darkness over Delaware

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog


Darkness fell across the state of Delaware yesterday, as the House vote yes on SB 5 which will  legalize Late Term Abortions.

A late-term abortion is when the Child is too developed to be suctioned out via vacuum aspiration and instead requires a late-term D&E dismemberment procedure..  

My heart is so heavy that I can’t seem to move to a different thought than that of all the innocent lives who are at risk of death. The unborn babies were given a sentence to death by men and women in a suits. 

At one time, Delaware was our home and is now one of the most pro-death abortion state.  We now live in the state of Mississippi, one of the most pro-life states in the union.

I wonder what goes inside the minds of these men and women who voted yes to murder .  What happen?  Where did the evil close their eyes to the truth and beauty of LIFE?  

When I read about the bill detail last night, I noticed the time which the House passed this law was at 6:23pm.

I  couldn’t help but to look up in the Holy Bible, Matthew Chapter 6 verse 23.

23 But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be darkness. If then, the light inside you is darkened, what darkness that will be!

 

What darkness it is!  But I will not let this darkness be the disease of my soul, of my peace, of my love.

No, we will keep fighting the good fight!!!  

After the post on the Zookeeper’s Wife, people asked, “How can I do more for the Pro-Life movement from home?”

Here are just somethings that can be done to keep on fighting this evil of darkness.

5 Ways to being pro-life at home Hair Bows 4 Life the Blog

 

  1. Pray and Fast.  Pick a day that you will pray and fast to end this evil. Pray for the abortion doctors, nurses, politicians.   Find their names. Pray for them by their names. Fast for them!  

  2.  Be the Light of Christ. Love. Have a merciful love for all humans. See Christ in everyone you meet. Smile. Love your family, first.

  3. Be Social. Use  social media what social media is best for. Spread the word.  Find some pro-life Facebook pages that inform you on the Pro-Life movement. Next, Share, Share, Share. 

  4. Adopt a baby. Spiritually adopt a baby. Give them a name. Pray for them.

  5. Support pro-life organizations that are in the front line of this battle for LIFE.  Give to them $5 , the cost of latte . Monthly, weekly? Whatever you can. Switch organizations. Make it a family event to read up on organizations and what they do and ask the kids to vote where to donate. Ask them to donate as well. 

 

Involve the whole family and start young so that it is in their nature (which it should be in everyone’s ones) to be pro-life and to defend ALL LIVES!

Pro-Life Wednesday: A Lethal force against Abortion with Love!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog

 


Have you ever thought that to end the war on abortion, we  can win it from the inside ? 

I truly believe that changing the laws of abortion, will not stop abortions.  Yes, many will be save due to the law but abortion will still go on.

WE need to change the hearts and lives of those on the inside!

Don’t we want to save that one sheep? 

Our Lord Jesus Christ, went out to find that one lost sheep while he had 99 sheep in this flock. He made a great point in say thing that He needed to find that one sheep.

While we fight to end the law of abortion and win over the hearts of those who are for it, we must do what it takes to find that one lost sheep.

That sheep is an abortion worker.

When I found this organization by Abby Jonhson called, And Then There Were None also at abortionworker.com ,  I saw the face of Christ looking for his lost sheep.

ATTWN is  nonprofit organization that exists to help abortion clinic workers leave the abortion industry.

ATTWN is pro-life without exceptions and support all peaceful pro-life efforts, ATTWN seeks to end abortion from the inside out.

You see, those abortion workers are human as well. Since we as pro-lifers believe that ALL lives Matter. Then these workers lives matter to Christ, matter to us. 

His mercy doesn’t pass judgment. His mercy is for all!

ATTWN shows His mercy to abortion workers. They help them get out of this evil work into a place where they can heal, forgive themselves and protect other lives!

6 Ways they help these lost sheep!

Financial: Once they finally get a worker’s proof of their resignation from the clinic, they provide one month of income replacement.  Money is almost the key to holding them to a job a bit longer. These workers can be single moms who have bills to pay. Transitional financial assistance is a key in helping them take that first step

Legal: These  workers have been a part of or witnessed illegal activity at their clinics. ATTWN have attorneys in all 50 states. They will offer them legal protection and representation.  Another plus to this has been that the lawyers have been use for testimony of the workers to close down abortion clinics.

Employment. They have a team  of professional resume writers and professional recruiters who help them find jobs in their city.  They also have a large list of  contacts in every city in America who are willing to hire these workers. Some are now working with pregnancy resource centers and helping women choose life. WOW!

Emotional: They assigned each worker to a Client Manager that will be there and help them through this painful journey toward healing and finding forgiveness.  They use a relationship-driven model of ministry as in listening, giving advice, praying, and offering other emotional support. Everything is private and if need be professional counseling is given.

Spiritual: Any worker that leaves this evil , this darkness heads to the light, a spiritual conversion. They connect them  to healthy, vibrant churches in their areas and Christian pastors who can help them continue to grow spiritually. Their Client Manager is also available to pray and provide spiritual support at any time, as much as needed.  There is also  a section where you can  partner with them with prayers.

Retreats: They will host all expense paid to healing retreats each year.  They have several ” phases” of retreats and they encourage all the former workers to join in the healing program.

They are the face of Christ bringing home His lost sheep.

Abby Johnson’s story is amazing one. Her book Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line is a book you can’t put down.  It gives you an insight to how easy it is for a young women get sucked into the work of evil without even planning it . 

Again, an amazing story that we are giving away a copy of this dramatic true story!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

They have help about 350 workers leave the abortion industry! 

As a direct result of the testimony of these workers, several clinics have been permanently shut down. More to Come!!

ATTWN makes a major great point, you see the abortion industry, especially Planned Parenthood know , that a former employee is lethal to their industry!

No abortion clinic workers, no abortion clinics, no abortions. It starts with the workers.

Please visit and if you can make a donation of any size but most of all, pray for their work and protection from the evil one who knows the great danger ATTWN is  to ending this war on Unborn.

With Christ’s Merciful Love,

How about this Zookeeper’s Wife approach to the war on LIVES?

Pro-Life Wednesday: The Zookeeper’s Wife: Keeper of Life!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog


 

 

Have you seen this movie?  Have you heard about this movie?  It was one of the most profound movie I have seen in a long time. Just watching the trailer again, stirs up emotions.  I don’t think it’s still out in the movies theaters, so keep an eye out for it on Redbox or Amazon (wherever you watch the latest movies).  Trust me on this and watch the movie.

This movie is based on the book, The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story . 

Summary metacritic: In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl). To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.

So as I am watching this movie, I couldn’t help but to think, how brave this women and her husband are to risk it all for the lives of those whom they don’t even know (they had a few Jewish friends)

They hid over 300 Jewish people in their Zoo.  

It’s a powerful movie that was written and directed by a women. 

We are living in the greatest holocaust the world as ever know! Ever. Know.  It is hard to  compare or not  the holocaust to abortion

Jennifer Fulwier writes an excellent piece on this comparison and one of main points that really hit home to me was this:

At the root of both scourges is a particular strain of evil, the most virulent that the devil possesses. It is the kind of evil that works to take away the humanity of human beings. It whispers in the ears of one group of people who a certain other group of people are something less than human, less worthy of life because of race or religion or physical ability or age. And once this is accomplished, once a group of people have been thoroughly dehumanized in the mind of their society, evil can run wild while the populace yawns.

Johan Heldenbergh plays Jan Zabinski and Arnost Goldflam is orphanage director Dr. Janusz Korczak in ‘The Zookeeper’s Wife.’ (Focus Features)

Another hero in this story was Arnost Goldflam the orphanage director, a saint!

Zookeeper is telling Arnots that his car is right there. That he will help him escape right now. What does Arnots do? He becomes Christ. Another Jew becomes Christ-like, and goes with the children onto the gas chamber so that they will not feel alone in the end of their short life.  

He sacrifices himself for the sake of love.  He asks the zookeeper to help him make it a great joy getting on the train for the children.

It was one of the hardest part of the movie for myself.

This movie kept me thinking about my own actions (or lack of) in this fight against the evil of abortion.

I kept asking myself,  How can I be like the zookeeper’s wife (sometimes feels like I do live in a zoo) to the unborn?

Mother Teresa came to mind . 

Mother Teresa quote Hair bows 4 life the blog

Everyone is call to be a certain type of Zookeeper’s wife.  Everyone must do the right thing at the right time God has called them to do. 

Don’t stay silent. Always Pray, Fast, and Love.

With the Love of Christ,

Pro-Life Wednesday: Open to Life is also open to death!

Pro-Life Wednesday Hair Bows 4 life the Blog

Have you ever taken the word pro-life and thought the meaning of it?  When you look  up the definition of pro-life, you get “opposed to abortion”.  But being opposed to abortion is not being pro-life. There is so much more to pro-life than just being opposed to abortion.   Growing up, I never thought more to those words of pro-life than that simple definition; one opposed to abortion.  I believe millions of people think the same.  But LIFE has shown me that meaning  is so much more. 

When you come to think of it, the word itself is  just odd. PRO-LIFE.  Someone who supports  LIFE.  I never met someone who was dead being pro-life?  I mean if you are breathing chances are you are pro-life (yes, we have sadly the exception of millions who take their own life and its a sadness of its own). 

But I never thought in my life that being pro-life , an openness to LIFE also  meant  having an openness to DEATH. This  openness of death didn’t really hit home to me until the death of my third child.  Losing an unborn child is no stroll in the park at whatever stage that child is develop.   I have lost two children  borderline of the first and second trimester which one resulted in an emergency D&C and the other a natural passing of the baby at home.

However, when I experienced my third loss of my unborn baby late in the second trimester, I experiences a different meaning of being pro-life/openness to life.    I had to deliver this silent baby into my arms for a short time but forever in my heart.   God’s love and presences during one of the 2 hardest time in my life (so far) was so overwhelming beautiful.  This occurred during the start of Holy Week 2012 and to unit my suffering of losing my son with Mary was a gift in many ways from God. 

I learn the hardest way that being open to life meant I had to be open to death. It meant that I had to be open to the idea that my unborn baby might not see this side of earth but they would see greater beauty, truth, and love. 

Pro-life wednesday baby hair bows 4 life the blog

It was only 16 months later , that I had to experiences this openness to death yet again after losing another sweet baby boy, Juan Diego (his due date was December 12th).  During this time, I had come across a book that had a great impact of my healing beside God’s grace and prayers from family and friends, After Miscarriage: A Catholic Woman’s Companion to Healing & Hope .   Words have such power to bring healing and comfort to others and the stories and comfort in this book was amazing.  

I was inspired by God to start a miscarriage ministry where we can give any mother who needs to find some comfort after losing their unborn baby this book. Magnolia Miscarriage Ministry
