Beyond the Choice Promo

At first it was a thought, how could we at Life Choices Center, get the message out to women who are hurting because of the "choice" they made? To let them know that they aren't alone and that there is hope, beyond the choice. It was then, Karen, (she the support services director), the ladies of “Beyond the Choice” abortion recovery program and myself talked about getting a DVD made. I knew just the person who could help, my husband Danny, he had started the church's video ministry several years ago and in the past did wedding videos. I asked and he said he would help.

Danny, thank you for all the time you put into this project. For being the cameraman, director and editor, I know God was smiling and will bless for your excellent work.

Thank you to all the women who bravely stepped out of the dark and trusted God. May God bless you for sharing your secret sin.

So, my friends, I give all my praise God and present to you…Beyond the Choice

Hi Tammy,

Thank you for visiting my site to see what Edie did. I actually found her design site by visitng your site first and I'm so glad I did. She really is a blessing. When I saw your site and clicked on one of the scripture tags it went to Edie's site. I just loved your site; it's so pretty! And as you know I have been following your site for about 3 weeks now....

Well maybe you didn't realize that, but I've been reading up on things here and there. And then started to ask Edie about creating a custome blog for me as well. I read about your talk with sharing the abortion you had and it really touched me. I don't know if you read beyond my blog about my testimony, but I had a sinful past too, just in a different way.

I think with pasts that are hard, that these are the ministries that God uses to reach other's the most. Don't get me wrong; I'm not saying He doesn't use those who have never suffereed at all. I'm just saying the impact in reaching the lost or in your case the ones who can relate to your situation, we are the one's who (I believe) will reach a wider lost audience than those who have never know what it is to stuggle/sin/regret...

If you feel led I would also be honored to have you follow my blog as well, but only if you feel led. Also, please sign my guestbook! :D

There's actually another site I am hoping Edie will create for me; my professional site over my passion in photography. This will be a new site, but I hope she's not burnt out with me....I really felt she was going to come through my laptop and slap me....LOL....I asked her to change so many things so often....I felt so bad.

Well thanks for stopping by. God bless! And I hope to get to know you more!

LOL....too funny Edie!!! I love how you know that I'm only teasing you. I love your work! It's awesome!!! You seem like a lovely person to know in-person. :D

Okay I stated above I READ about your abortion sin and working in the clinic, but I just now listened to the YouTube video clip you did. It is so true that others have such tramatic regrets. Although it's wierd too that some don't seem to suffer or at least don't show it.

A dear friend of mine has done everything regarding her pregnancies. She got pregnant when she was 17, had the baby, then got pregnant again, aborted the baby, then got pregnant again and miscarried. But she doesn't seem to be phased....maybe her brain won't let her go 'there'. And then I have a sister-in-law who is constantly depressed....very, very much so. She had a son, who is now 11 that she lost custody of but only sees every other weekend, then she got pregnant later and had an abortion, then got pregnant again and later met my half-brother who supported her in not aborting but giving her baby up for adoption, and later she ended up marrying my half-brother and now has her second child that she see's. With my half-brother she has full custody over her 4 year old but she still only has bi-weekly visits with her 11 yr. old son.

She is so terribly depressed and sad so often. If only she had the internet and maybe I could share this site with her. But she lives to far from me to just let her use mine.

Your video was awesome. I'll try to find a way to have her view it, but I'm worried that it'll sink her into more of a depression.
