Today, If We Hear His Voice | Hebrews 3

Welcome to Real Life. In a noisy world, we tune out voices. Politician. Parent. Boss.

At the sound of her voice, I switched stations. Nancy’s  Revive Our Hearts program replaced Elizabeth Elliot’s when she retired. Young Nancy couldn’t match Elizabeth’s wisdom and experience. I tuned her out.
Fast forward a few years. I work at Moody Radio. Revive Our Hearts airs on their network. At work, when I heard Nancy's voice, I couldn't switch stations. I grew to love and respect her voice. I even traveled to Indianapolis to attend Nancy's True Woman Conference.

If she is pregnant, we (CPC) help eliminate the crisis—not the child. Most women want to have their babies. But they can’t see beyond the crisis. They believe abortion is the only solution. “I was pro-life before I got pregnant. Now that I’m pregnant, I don’t know what to do,” many will say.

“What is abortion?” I ask.
