“I am a very strong believer of abstinence and the wonderful joys and blessings that it brings into a marriage or an individuals life. I’m passionate about following the Lord’s will and I desire to talk with women about the importance of this sensitive and personal issue. At nineteen I gave birth to my daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth is now 26 yrs old and living in San Francisco as a fashion designer. She has been the greatest gift I’ve received from God in my life. I feel strongly about the mercy that God gives us when we are in difficult situations. This is why I am thankful that our Lord has given me an abundance of compassion for girls and women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. I want to be able to help them choose life and let them know what a blessing it can bring to their lives. I know first hand. Children are a blessing from the Lord.”
