Are You an Encourager?

By | Virginia | No Comments

“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” I Timothy 2:1-4

Because Concerned Women for America (CWA) believes prayer is crucial to revival and restoration of a nation, we are seeking volunteers to participate in our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Campaign for the 2019 Virginia legislative session. We are so excited to see what God is going to do in the hearts and minds of our state legislators as we pray for them each day and encourage them through our weekly postcards. Virginia has 140 legislators (40 senators and 100 delegates). Would you commit to adopt a legislator and pray for him or her daily during the six-week session that runs January and February?

As an EAL volunteer, you will send your assigned legislator a pre-printed postcard weekly. The postcard contains a Scripture verse or quote as an expression of appreciation for his or her service in the legislature. You can also write a short note letting the legislator know you are praying for them. The cards are never used to lobby the legislator.

CWA has implemented this program in many states, including Virginia, with great success. Legislators have responded with humble appreciation. Will you be one of our faithful prayer warriors? If so, we will assign a legislator to you and supply you with the instructions and supplies. Contact me to sign up and/or for further information.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Update from CWA of Virginia: This Saturday’s Event in Support of Phillip Zodhiates, Sentenced to Three Years in Prison

By | Virginia | No Comments

As you may recall from past e-alerts, Lisa Miller is the biological mother of Isabella through artificial insemination.  For seventeen months, Isabella grew up in a household where a civil union between two women existed. Lisa left homosexuality and dissolved the civil union. In 2004, Judge Prosser of Winchester ruled that Virginia’s Marriage Affirmation Act prohibited Virginia from recognizing civil unions. He deemed Lisa Miller Isabella’s only parent.

Then political and judicial activism started. There was an appeal, and Lisa lost and has been losing ever since. Vermont ordered visitation of Isabella to the former lesbian lover.  Lisa stopped the visits when Isabella began to exhibit emotional trauma.  Lisa and Isabella left the United States to a location unknown in September 2009.

After Lisa left the country, a Vermont judge ordered custody transferred on January 1, 2010, to Janet Jenkins, the former partner of Lisa.  Two individuals were found guilty and served jail time for aiding Lisa and Isabella in leaving the United States.  A third individual, Philip Zodhiates, has been charged and convicted and will report on December 5 to begin serving his 3-year prison sentence.

An event in support of Philip Zodhiates will be held this Saturday, December 1.   Supporters will gather at Gracebuilt Church at 2639 West Main Street in Waynesboro, Virginia.  Several people close to the case will be speaking.  The event will begin at noon and a reception will follow.  Bring a finger food to share. Drinks will be provided.

They ask that you RSVP to [email protected].

More Encouragers Needed for 2019

By | South Dakota | No Comments

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone–for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. –I Timothy 2:1

Dear CWA Friends,

More “encouragers” are needed for our Encourage-A-Legislator Campaign for the 2019 South Dakota Legislative Session. It would be sad if all the legislators were not covered in prayer during the Session due to our unwillingness to pray for them.

Our legislators will be required to make important decisions on many issues that will affect our state and our families. Undoubtedly, much prayer is needed to restrain the enemy’s assault on our culture.

This is our 20th year of Encourage-A-Legislator! We appreciate the faithfulness of those among you who have been “encouragers” since our first year.

Will you commit once again to adopting a legislator and praying for him or her daily during the nine-week session beginning on January 8? Each week you will send your assigned legislator a CWA-provided postcard pre-printed with a Scripture verse or inspirational quote. Simply express appreciation for the legislator’s service, note your prayers for him or her, then add a postcard stamp and mail the card on a specified date.

Many legislators responded to your encouraging postcards last year with words of appreciation. Your benefit as an “encourager” is that you are energized and blessed to be a part of this effort.

If you wish to participate, please reply by noting your commitment and providing your physical mailing address. Postcards and instructions will be sent to you just prior to the opening of the 2019 South Dakota Legislative Session.

Help us recruit more “encouragers” by printing this informative flyer and providing it to your church family and friends.

You are appreciated!

CWA of Maine Thanksgiving Message: Expressing Gratitude for Freedom

By | Maine | No Comments

I love Thanksgiving, but sadly it seems, one of the most endearing American holidays has been relegated to the back of the holiday line. Christmas commercials are showing up in the middle of Thanksgiving cooking shows, and Santa and the reindeer have trumped the Pilgrims on most retail shelves.  Retail stores open on Thanksgiving before Black Friday.

The true meaning of Thanksgiving is this – the Pilgrims set aside this very special day to give thanks to God and to acknowledge how utterly dependent they were upon Him. They sacrificed much to begin a new life in a new and unknown land which would afford them the liberty to freely worship the true and living God.  We owe much to these early settlers. America’s Judeo-Christian heritage took root when the Pilgrims and Puritans set foot upon this continent.  In the book America’s Providential History, authors Beliles and McDowell say this of the Pilgrims, “God had prepared those of humble beginnings to be a light of liberty to an entire nation.”

Are you willing to be a “light of liberty” to this generation? “The early settlers and founders of our nation had an understanding that what we had as a nation came from God, came from Biblical principles, so the first and foundational freedom in our nation is the right to worship God; the right of conscience,” notes David Barton, founder and president of Wall Builders.  God, not government, is the source of all liberties.

“We have forgotten that so many of our rights are God-given, and so, if they are given by the government, then the government is free to regulate them, tax them, or simply take them away,” Barton says.

As we approach Thanksgiving, may we give thanks to God for the courage and fortitude of the families, men, women and children who came to our nation not simply to practice their faith but to create a society built on Scriptural values. During the first winter, half of the Pilgrims died, and during the second winter, half of the remaining settlers also died. Those are sacrifices we cannot afford to take lightly.  “Here we are today enjoying the fruits of their labor, a goal they were willing to give their lives for.” – Barton

Let us remember the vision and sacrifice of our nation’s early founders, for it is because of their God-inspired effort – which we celebrate each Thanksgiving – that we have the freedom to freely and publicly worship the true and living Savior.

We at Concerned Woman for America of Maine wish you a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving. We are grateful for all of you and what you mean to the life of CWA.

Are You an Encourager?

By | North Dakota | No Comments

Dear Friend,

We are excited to continue our Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) program into 2019!

Our EAL program is one of CWA of North Dakota’s most valued programs. EAL is a program of encouragement and prayer for our state legislators. It is not an expression of political or public policy views. The goal is to simply uplift the legislator and to remind him or her that they are being prayed for regularly.

This is how it works: You commit to adopting a legislator and praying for him or her daily during the 2019 legislative session beginning in January. Each week you will send your assigned legislator a CWA provided postcard pre-printed with a Scripture verse. Simply express appreciation for the legislator’s service and note your prayers for him or her. Finally, add a postcard stamp and mail the card.

As CWA of North Dakota’s EAL Coordinator, Karen Anderson, is committed to continuing to oversee this wonderful ministry. She desires to not only encourage our legislators but to also encourage YOU!

Karen’s message to our volunteers: “I am honored to oversee this program. We have received wonderful feedback from legislators. Many have responded to your prayers and encouraging postcards over the years with words of appreciation. Your efforts encourage and build bridges. We hear back from both conservative legislators as well as those who do not typically agree with CWA.  As a part of this effort, I know you too will be energized and blessed!”

Are you interested?  Now more than ever our leaders need our prayers and encouragement. 

Prayer moves the hand of God in the affairs of this nation!  In fact, we are commanded to pray for those in authority. “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior …” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

We are looking for your commitment today! Please reply by calling me at 701-331-9792 or email [email protected]. Be sure to specify the number of legislators you would like to adopt, your name, address and email address. You will receive your postcards and instructions just prior to the opening of the 2019 North Dakota legislative session early in January.

Are You an Encourager? The Illinois General Assembly Needs You!

By | Illinois | No Comments

Dear Friend,

The 2018 Midterms are over with new and familiar legislators being seated for the upcoming 101st Illinois General Assembly.  Only prayer and action will turn the hearts of our legislators in 2019. Here’s how you can help!

We are seeking intercessors for the CWA of Illinois Encourage-A-Legislator (EAL) Project.

EAL is a project of encouragement and prayer for our Illinois elected officials, members of the Illinois General Assembly, and all Illinois county board and commission chairpersons. It is not an expression of political or public policy views.  It involves three easy steps:

  1. CWA provides 12 pre-addressed postcards that contain a Scripture verse, Founding Father quote, and prayer.
  1. Participants sign, stamp, and send a postcard once a month starting in February and pray earnestly for their assigned legislator.
  1. Participants are welcome to pray for and encourage more than one legislator.

Special thanks to all those who participated in the EAL project during the 2018 legislative session.  We received several messages from legislators expressing their gratitude for the encouragement and prayers.

If you would like to participate in the CWA of Illinois EAL Project, please call me at 815-297-2918 or email [email protected]. Be sure to specify the number of legislators you would like to pray and encourage.  Please provide your name address, and email address. 

The Illinois EAL project cannot exist without funding.  If you feel led, please donate to CWA of Illinois.  CWA of Illinois is volunteer led.  All donations given to CWA of Illinois will fund the state’s projects and initiatives.  Click here to donate today, or feel free to send a check to the address below.  Any amount is appreciated!

Prayer moves the hand of God in the affairs of this nation!  In fact, we are commanded to pray for those in authority. “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is good and pleases God our Savior…” – 1 Timothy 2:1 

We are looking for your commitment today! Your packet will be mailed to you once the new General Assembly committee assignments are made and the legislators’ contact information is secured in early February.

National Adoption Awareness Month: A Chance at Life

By | Blog, News and Events, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

It was the summer of 1952. The Olympics were in full swing, and I was a newly minted high school graduate. I was also 17 and about a month-and-a-half pregnant.

Neither my mother, nor my boyfriend found out until after graduation, and they didn’t seem too interested in helping me decide what to do. In fact, my mother chose to wash her hands of the entire situation and provided me nothing by way of help or comfort. We weren’t a Christian family at that time, so I didn’t even have a church family I could go to for help.

What I did have, though, was an uncle who worked hard to help me. Uncle Dick was 13 years older than me and seemed more like an older brother than an uncle. When my mother told him about my situation, he found the solution. To this day, I do not know how he found it, but near where I lived in the Chicago area, Uncle Dick came across the Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers, and I moved in immediately.

Uncle Dick also found me a position with Kemper Insurance Company, so I could earn money to help contribute to the “home.” His plan was to help me through the pregnancy as best he could. If I had come home to small-town Evanston with a child and no husband, I would have been treated like a leper. So, Uncle Dick thought the best thing to do was to give the baby up for adoption. (That the suggestion of an abortion never came up — and yes, they were being done back then — is something I definitely consider a blessing.)

He contacted an adoption agency for me — Catholic Charities, if memory serves — and I knew that when I gave birth, the baby would be turned over to them. And that is exactly what happened. On February 3, 1953, I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. I had hoped to hold her before she was given to Catholic Charities, and they even offered. For some reason, though, they never brought her in to me.

In the end, I never got to see her face; I never got to feel her warmth in my arms. I never got to hear her laugh or cry. My daughter was just … gone. I knew then that this loss would haunt me for years to come. Even now, recalling that moment, I am brought to tears.

But those tears were for me. God honored my decision, and my daughter was given to a wealthy couple who were able to love her and give her a good upbringing.

Fifty-three years would pass before God showed me His hand on this situation.

Twelve years ago, after the passing of my second husband, I began to look for my daughter. I wound up visiting only one website that had anything to do with adopted children, and I entered my personal information. Not long after that, I was contacted by Nick, a man who thought that I might be his mother. Why? Because my last name matched that of his birth mother who had given him up for adoption on Christmas Eve in 1946.

We discovered that I could not have been his mother, because I would’ve only been 12 years of age at the time he was born. However, when we started connecting notes, I began to have a very strange feeling about it, as if God had orchestrated this entire thing and connected me with this young man through my search for my daughter. I began to understand that the woman listed on his birth certificate was also my mother. I sent him my graduation photo, and he immediately sent his graduation picture back to me right next to mine. I could definitely see the resemblance. Two of my four brothers joined Nick and me in taking a DNA test. The results were positive that we were related through the maternal side of my family.

Since Nick had already started this process, he was able to give me pointers. He said that contacting the health department for the state of Illinois was the best way to connect with my daughter. Best of all, I could do it online.

Days later, the office called me to verify the birth date. I was unable to give them that, as all the papers relating to her birth and my stay at the Florence Crittenton Home were destroyed during my first marriage. Having no written documents, I could only give them an estimate.

Apparently, that was enough. Within a couple of weeks, I held a letter in my hands that left me breathless. Not only had they located my daughter, they had included her personal information; she had been searching for me as well! Now the question was, “Why?” I hesitated to contact her for fear that, rather than wanting to connect, she might only need my medical history information.

A few days later, the phone rang, and that question was answered. The voice on the other end said, “Hello Mom! This is your daughter, Betsy, and I want to thank you for giving me a chance at life.” I nearly dropped the telephone! Within a week, I was able to connect with my daughter and her husband during a trip to Las Vegas.

The rest, as they say, is history. Betsy and her family have been in my life ever since.

Do I support adoption? I certainly do — but not just for situations like mine; I support adoption for anyone who finds themselves pregnant with a child they do not want or cannot keep. If the birth mother is willing to be a part of the process, all the better for her. Mothers should be able to choose an agency that makes them the most comfortable, and people of faith should have the opportunity to work with an agency that shares their beliefs.

Beyond consenting to give up my daughter, I was not involved in her adoption. I never got to hold her, and for 53 years it left a hole in my heart. Now that hole is filled with love. To those women considering abortion, I urge you to choose adoption instead. Giving up your child — either through adoption or abortion — will leave a similar hole in your heart, but with abortion, it’s a hole that you have no hope in filling during this lifetime.

Please give them a chance at life. You won’t regret it.

Consider This Parent’s Concern When Voting on November 6

By | North Carolina | No Comments

Just over two weeks ago, the parent of an 11-year old sixth-grader at a Franklin County middle school in North Carolina complained that her son had to complete a survey question regarding his sexual orientation! This “dating violence prevention intervention program curriculum” called Shifting Boundaries is targeting middle school students in 13 different school districts in North Carolina. Their focus is on “awareness of sexual harassment and teen-dating violence.”

This federal grant curriculum asked 11-year olds to select from a list of 10 options what sexual orientation they are! As a result of parents’ complaints, North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA), who provided this survey, agreed to remove any questions involving sexual orientation from the survey. NCCASA is an original Blueprint NC member (mappingtheleft.com/group/nc-coalition-against-sexual-assault-nccasa/)… Blueprint NC is the organization that is widely known for the political “strategy memo that instructed its members to ‘eviscerate, mitigate, litigate, cogitate and agitate’ the state’s leadership in 2013.”

That anyone would think the Shifting Boundaries curriculum is acceptable for 11-year olds is astounding! But the real concern is who are the groups behind this appalling curriculum? All too often it takes effort to unmask the identity behind such nefarious groups. And after some investigation, we find that such anti-family groups are at the core. It’s incredible the web of dark, malevolent groups that emerge as they themselves insert immoral sexuality into the lives of our precious teenagers as they claim to prevent and intervene on behalf of sexual assault. They are LGBTQ-affirming. And, as they will be gathering for a November “Sexual Violence Primary Prevention Summit,” their keynote speaker is Educator Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs. Dr. Gumbs’ bio reveals that she is a black feminist; more specifically, she self-describes as a “queer black troublemaker”. Yet, she is the honored speaker for this sexual assault conference. What could she possibly offer to those organizations who exist for the sole purpose of helping to prevent sexual assaults as well as to help victims and survivors? And, how can what she advocates help our youth! 

If that’s not bad enough, at the top of NCCASA’s “Helpful” resources list we find:

  1. Carolina Abortion Fund which exists to assist low-income patients in North Carolina who have chosen to have an abortion but cannot afford the whole cost stating that “… all people have the power and resources to care for and affirm their bodies, identities, and health for themselves…”
  2. Equality NC providing the latest on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues and state politics in North Carolina.

Following the money trail, among other donors, the Z Smith Reynolds Foundation, who funds the liberal ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) and Planned Parenthood, is among the largest funder for NCCASA’s “Justice and Economic Justice” issue with almost $700,000 since 2003.

These entities remain behind the scenes while indoctrinating our innocent children without their parents’ knowledge! As parents, we cannot allow our children to be overpowered by the depraved authorities who are supposed to protect them. If we do not educate and advocate for our own children, who will? We must be our own children’s last line of defense if no one else will.

“Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” (Psalm 82:4)

Please PRAY, Take Action, and then VOTE!

  1. It’s time to play offense! Contact your school principals and insist that they disclose and make transparent these types of curriculums.
  2. Also make your voice known to your local school board.
  3. This is an issue that is worth your vote for the sake of your children. Find out how the candidates stand on issues like this.

Dear friend,

As you know, we are at a breaking point in history where the rule of law and civil discourse are being threatened by some politicians and radical activists who insist on getting their way, no matter what. Some are actually inciting that violence to be directed at those with whom they disagree.

There are three simple steps that can have a significant impact on our state and nation’s future. Please join us in carrying them out. 

#1 Pray

Dear friend,

As you know, we are at a breaking point in history where the rule of law and civil discourse are being threatened by some politicians and radical activists who insist on getting their way, no matter what. Some are actually inciting that violence to be directed at those with whom they disagree.

Will it be mob rule or the rule of law?!

There are three simple steps that can have a significant impact on our state and nation’s future. Please join us in carrying them out. 

#1 Pray
As a Christian organization, we are first and foremost committed to prayer. As November 6th approaches, will you join us in praying for our state and nation? Please join us by setting a time daily to pray for this next election. Will you do that? Set an alarm on your phone, your computer, put a sticky note on your mirror, whatever works.

# 2 Encourage
As a Christian organization, we are committed to educating and encouraging others to vote. Will you join us in this? Encourage friends and family through Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.

#3 Vote
It is our duty, as citizens and as Christians, to participate in the process by both praying and voting. The institution of government was ordained by God as seen in Romans 13:1-4.

It is up to you and me to stand up to this mob mentality we saw during the Kavanaugh debacle by praying against malicious tactics and voting November 6.

Did you know . . . in North Carolina, early voting starts 20 days before and ends 3 days prior to Election Day?  For more information go to ncsbe.gov/ncsbe/.

Take a look at the candidates:

Voted NO on Justice Kavanaugh: Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota), “After doing my due diligence and now that the record is apparently closed, I will vote against his confirmation.”

Supported Justice Kavanaugh: Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-North Dakota), “The Supreme Court now has an eminently qualified and constitutionally-minded addition to its bench. North Dakota and our country as a whole will benefit greatly from this confirmation.”

Did you know . . . in North Dakota, any resident may apply for absentee ballot and vote by mail if they cannot get to the polls on Election Day?  Early voting is also available, but start and end times vary by county. For more information go to vip.sos.nd.gov/PortalList.aspx.

Take a look at the candidates:

Voted NO on Justice Kavanaugh: Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Florida), “I will vote no on Judge Kavanaugh.  It was very apparent in the way that he has conducted himself in interviews. The testimony of Dr. Ford was quite compelling.  As a matter of fact, it was real.”

Supported Justice Kavanaugh: Gov. Rick Scott (R-Florida), “This is a circus.  It is more like a Jerry Springer show.  Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh are pawns in some political game…if you take the evidence together and you look at Judge Kavanaugh’s record as a judge, I will continue to support Judge Kavanaugh.”

In Florida, early voting starts 10 days before and ends 3 days prior to Election Day? Any registered voter may apply for an absentee ballot and vote by mail. They are due 6 days before Election Day by mail or 1 day before in person.  For more information go to dos.myflorida.com/elections/.
