“Save Our Children” Presentation
With Award Winning Journalist Alex Newman

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri’s St. Louis Prayer/Action Chapter invites you to hear Alex Newman speak on why we need to “Save Our Children” who are in the public school system. Men, women, and teens are welcome to attend.

 

Alex Newman will expose the insanity that has taken over the public school system. From the age-inappropriate materials foisted on our children, the reshaping of the values taught them and honored by their parents and grandparents, to the complete abandonment of a true education, Mr. Newman shows how dangerous this threat is: to our children, our faith, our family, and our freedoms.

 

Call to Action

More importantly, Alex Newman will share what you, and every Missourian, can do about it!

If you are concerned about what is happening (and not happening) in our public schools, and even some private schools today, you will not want to miss Alex Newman and his presentation “Save Our Children!”

When: Tuesday, January 31

Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Location: The Pillar Foundation, 15820 Clayton Road, Ellisville, MO 63011

Liberty in Law Dinner with Alex Newman

Concerned Women for America of Missouri (CWA) invites you to join us for a presentation by Alex Newman, at the Liberty in Law Dinner, Monday, January 30, 2023, in Jefferson City.

 

Alex Newman, an award-winning international journalist, educator, author, speaker, and consultant, will speak on the importance of getting children out of public schools as quickly as possible.

 

His reasons for this are many and stem from the global agendas being forced into the curriculum.

These include socialism and communism-both failed experiments in other parts of the world-as well as the ever-expanding sexual education. This “education” only begins at the “drag queen story hours” that we have been hearing about for years.

 

Now, schools can hide sex change services from parents, and educational materials go so far as to teach about the pedophilia present in ancient Greece.

 

Furthermore, these schools are teaching Islamic and Buddhist principles, while banning prayer in schools, as part of the “global education” that schools are moving toward. Ultimately, they hope for a “world core curriculum” that will have the same standards for every child in every school in the world. This has always been the goal, Newman says, and is a sign to parents: get your children out of government schools.

The Chapter will discuss Principle 17: A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power by the different branches of government.

Kim is looking forward to caring and counseling the members of the CWA of Missouri leadership team.

CWA of Missouri Goes to Washington (D.C.)

By | Missouri | No Comments

Seven members of Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri attended the CWA Leadership Summit on September 8 and 9, 2022, in Washington, D.C., with directors and area directors attending the State Director training on September 7.

 

We all see the evil that has infiltrated America and American politics. This evil is threatening to destroy families and everything we hold dear. We were honored to be a part of such an exemplary organization as CWA, as we push back darkness together, shining light and truth through prayer and action.

 

The times in which we live require that we stand on God’s Word as we work to restore America. As we stand on His Word, united together in our faith in Jesus, we will see the impossible become possible. We will not fear, for there is more with us than with them.

 

It was invigorating to fellowship with the courageous and strong women of CWA from across the nation!

 

We want to thank all those at the CWA National office who worked so hard to organize and execute this most excellent Leadership Summit 2022. The accommodations were comfortable and luxurious, the meals were the best we have eaten, the speakers were inspiring and informative, and the anointed worship propelled us into the very presence of God! Well done!

 

Alissa Johnson, CWA of Missouri Legislative Liaison, received the Outstanding Legislative Liaison award for her tireless work in protecting children from online pornography.

Here are a few comments from CWA of Missouri Leaders:

“Overall, I came home with a renewed passion and conviction that we, as Christians, must be on the front line of this cultural war. I realized how CWA is so very necessary and unique. There are many good organizations working in the Kingdom, but most are focused on one subject, abortion, election integrity education, etc., whereas CWA encompasses them all!” Jennifer Gore, CWA of Missouri Legislative Liaison   

 

“It was the best leadership training we have had! I appreciate the doctors that gave us facts and figures based on legitimate medical studies so that we can speak intelligently on the issues such as abortion and the senseless mutualization and indoctrination of our precious children. It was also great to hear from pro-life Senators who are fighting for Biblical principles and constitutional freedom. As always, a visit to Washington, D.C., is inspiring. We took a Night Monument Tour and were reminded of our nation’s rich history. My favorite was the World War II Monument. I am thankful to those who fought and died for our freedom.” Haven Howard Southern Missouri Director/Taney County Prayer/Action Chapter Leader

 

“In attending the Leadership Summit, I felt connected to something big, bigger than myself, bigger than our efforts in Missouri. It is a blessed honor to be a part of a united team of prayer warriors who are taking effective action across the nation to restore America to God. Together, through Him, nothing will be impossible!” Janet Dabbs, CWA of Missouri Communications Coordinator

CWALAC Endorses State Representative Brian Seitz

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 5, 2022
FOR MORE INFORMATION: Bev Ehlen, 314-608-0168

 

Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee
Endorses Brian Seitz for State Legislative District 156.

 

St. Peters, Missouri— Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) has endorsed State Representative Brian Seitz in the 2022 State Legislative race for the 156th District. In making the announcement, CWALAC cited state representative Rep. Seitz’s record of standing firm on Concerned Women for America’s seven core issues. During the time that Rep. Seitz has spent at the State Capitol, he has consistently sponsored and supported legislation that would uphold the sanctity of life, education reform, parents’ rights, and limited government, as well as his opposition to policies that harm families. CWALAC acknowledges that much of Seitz’s ability to be effective for all Missourians is his understanding of our Founding Fathers’ intent when using timeless principles to draft our U.S. constitution and form our republic. Rep. Seitz is a constitutional conservative and understands the proper role of civil government.

 

“I believe Rep. Seitz will continue to defend the God-given rights of both the born and the unborn guaranteed in our Constitution and to work to ensure that future generations get to enjoy the blessings God has poured out on our country,” said Bev Ehlen, State Director for Concerned Women for America. “Rather than having government try to run our lives, Rep. Seitz believes each of us should be empowered to enjoy our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

 

“Brian Seitz has been an asset to the Missouri General Assembly. We believe he will continue to serve and represent the 156th Legislative District with sincerity, honesty, and integrity,” Ehlen concluded. “It is our pleasure to endorse his candidacy.”

Missouri First State to Ban Abortion

By | Missouri | No Comments

Concerned Women for America of Missouri is excited and proud that Missouri is the first state to ban abortion after the announcement of the overturning of Roe v Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. A trigger clause was added to HB126 in 2019, so when Roe was overturned, Missouri would ban abortions.

 

Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt (Republican) announced the activation of the state’s trigger law shortly after the high court’s decision was released. Read more here.

 

The work in the pro-life movement doesn’t end, but it is a new day in America and Missouri.

Supreme Court Overturns Roe vs. Wade
Missouri First State to End Abortion

 

Jefferson City, MO – In a 6-3 decision last Friday, June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, sending the battle to protect life back to the states. On that same day, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (Republican) issued an opinion to the Missouri Revisor of Statutes that “triggers” parts of Missouri’s House Bill 126, effectively ending abortion in the State of Missouri. Missouri is the first state in the country to do so.

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri State Director Bev Ehlen, speaking for Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, had this to say concerning the Supreme Court decision and the actions of Attorney General Schmitt:

 

“It was a great day for our country. Every child deserves the right to life. Roe was wrong from the start. The Court’s significant decision is welcomed after decades of pro-life activism. Individual states are now finally free to protect life. 

“Our gratitude goes to our great God and those thousands of pro-lifers who have stood for the sanctity of human life in so many ways over these past 49 years.”

Gender and Sexuality Issues and Critical Race Theory Conference

By | Missouri | No Comments

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri invites you to the Gender and Sexuality Issues and Critical Race Theory Conference Saturday, July 16, in Nevada, Missouri. These are two issues hitting the Christian community hard. This event will provide a Biblical worldview approach to these issues. Men, women, and teens are invited to attend.

 

The goal of this conference is to equip parents and concerned citizens with the necessary information to make informed choices. Parents are alarmed at the organized plan sweeping across Missouri and the nation to indoctrinate children on these issues. Please attend to be equipped with the facts and to find out what you can do to protect the children in your district.

 

Gender and Sexuality Issues
Alan Branch, Ph.D., Professor of Christian Ethics at Midwestern Seminary, will speak on Gender and Sexuality Issues. As Christians, we celebrate the beauty of God’s creative design for manhood and womanhood. However, we are witnessing moral anarchy as Western nations abandon all semblance of Biblical authority by embracing the transgender identity. An untold number of boys and girls are being harmed. Most significantly, God is not honored or obeyed. Dr. Branch will discuss how to train our children to thrive in a sexually confused society; and how to respond biblically to the sexual chaos in our culture. Dr. Branch is the author of Born This Way? and Affirming God’s Image: Addressing the Transgender Question with Science and Scripture.

 

Critical Race Theory
Mary Bryne, Ed.D. will make her presentation, “Critical Race Theory Exposed.” Dr. Byrne’s presentation explains how current events, most notably the recent violence ignited by claims of systemic racism, are grounded in critical race theory; and how critical race theory is grounded in Karl Marx’s writing instructing followers how to start a revolution in a nation. Her presentation will reveal how almost two centuries of Marxism have infiltrated the U.S. government, the law, churches, the military, and education. She will explain how there is a current concerted effort to indoctrinate Missouri school children by instilling the Critical Race Theory curriculum into the public school system.

 

Dr. Byrne is a national speaker and co-founding member of Missouri Coalition Against Common Core. She has an M.A. in special education and an M.Ed. in curriculum and instructional design, as well as a doctorate in special education from Teachers College at Columbia University.

 

The Work and Ministry of CWA of Missouri

The Future of Female Sports in Missouri – It Depends on You!

By | Missouri | No Comments

By a 6-3 vote, the Senate Education Committee voted SB781, the “Save Women’s Sports Act,” out of committee. Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri and Young Women for America testified in favor of the bill. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Mike Moon (R-District 29), is now in the full Senate. You can read more about SB781 here.

The “Save Women’s Sports Act” (SB781) will prohibit biological men from competing on women’s scholastic sports teams. It would ensure that female athletes will continue to be afforded the opportunity to compete on a level playing field.

Since 2021, almost every state has attempted to protect female athletes. Fourteen states have passed bills into law to protect women’s sports. Sadly, far-left activists are aggressively opposing the bill and are working hard to intimidate members of the Missouri General Assembly from supporting it. Engage today to help stop their efforts!

ACT TODAY! Please contact your State Senator through our Action Center HERE and urge them to protect women’s sports. Girls should not be forced to compete against men playing on women’s sports teams.

Please pray for your state senator by name. Pray for boldness and wisdom, and protection. Pray for the bill sponsor, Sen. Mike Moon, as he leads the fight on this issue. Pray that he will remain strong in the face of any pressure, adversity, and attacks.

Be sure to share this information with like-minded family and friends.

*Dr. Douglas G. Frank

In Spring 2021, Dr. Frank was formally asked to conduct an analysis to investigate the contested results of a congressional race in Pennsylvania.

“I discovered the algorithms that were controlling the election,” Dr. Frank said. “To us on the outside watching the election, we see these behaviors and don’t understand them – [but] I can [now] predict them based on what I know is underlying it.”

Dr. Frank then determined the people behind the election fraud padded the election registrations and votes for Joe Biden using the 2010 census. He has the state-by-state graphs to prove his theory of the Dominion algorithm.

Dr. Frank said because of the enormity of the task, he has not been able to analyze more than 3,000 counties of these United States. Those he has done have held to his algorithm perfectly.                                                                                            

Dr. Frank has approximately sixty peer-reviewed scientific publications, including feature and cover articles in the leading scientific journals in the world (Science, Nature, Naturwissenschaften). 

During his graduate and postdoctoral work, he discovered and developed a new type of microscopy capable of producing three-dimensional images of molecules resting on metal surfaces. This gave him international credibility in the area of Low Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED) and Auger electron spectroscopy and microscopy, and his work is prominently featured in college textbooks and handbooks on the subjects.

Dr. Frank left university academics in 1996 and began consulting, developing, and manufacturing surface analytical devices for national defense (DARPA) and various industries, especially the cleaning products industry and bowling ball manufacturers, where his custom electronics, software, inventions, and products continue to be widely used as industrial standards. Much of his work is protected by non-disclosure agreements.

During the 1990s, Dr. Frank helped to establish The Schilling School for Gifted Children in Cincinnati, Ohio. Schilling is a K-12 school for extraordinarily gifted youngsters, and Dr. Frank continues to teach a couple of their most advanced math and science classes each year and continues to serve as the Math and Science Department chair.

He earned a Ph.D. in Surface Electroanalytical Chemistry from the University of Cincinnati in 1990.

Pray for Missouri AG Eric Schmitt

By | Missouri | No Comments

Please join Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri in praying for Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt. AG Schmitt’s lawsuit to stop President Biden’s vaccine mandate will be heard in the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, January 7, 2022. 

This case has critical implications, not only for our state but for the integrity of our Constitutional liberties, so please,  be in prayer for Attorney General Schmitt and all those involved in this case.

Prayer for Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt

Father, in Jesus’ name, we give thanks for the United States of America and its government. We pray for all those in authority in our land. It is written in Your Word to call on You, and You will answer us and show us great and mighty things. 

We lift up Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, all those representing the citizens of this nation before the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

 We pray for skillful and Godly wisdom to enter the hearts and minds of AG Schmitt and his team. We pray for discretion to watch over them; that understanding will keep them. We pray that no weapon formed against them shall prosper, and any false accuser will be dismissed as a liar. 

Father, we ask that you surround the Justices with men and women full of wisdom. We ask you to make their hearts and ears attentive to godly counsel and to do that which is right in Your sight. We thank you that the shield of faith quenches every fiery dart of the enemy. 

It is written that the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord and that You turn it whichever way You desire. We believe the heart of these officials and the U.S. Supreme Court Justices are in Your hand and their decisions are divinely given by You. 

In Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.

Sincerely,
Bev Ehlen
State Director
