Beautiful Song! By Lacey Sturm called “The Reason”

Listen to the song here

“All my life I searched for something
To satisfy the longing in my heart
But everytime I come away emptier than before

And now I finally see the reason
Because I was made to be yours alone
I’m giving you my life, so take me
‘Cause I could never live without you now
I’m giving you my life so take me
‘Cause I could never live without you now

There were times I cried myself to sleep at night
Only to wake up wishing that I didn’t

And now I finally see the reason
Because I was made to be yours alone
I’m giving you my life, so take me
‘Cause I could never live without you now
I’m giving you my life so take me
‘Cause I could never live without you now

Thank you for never giving up on me!
When I looked to everything else but you
You bled and you died to be with me!
Why would you do something like that
For someone like me?

And now I finally see the reason
Because I was made to be yours alone
I’m giving you my life, so take me
‘Cause I could never live without you now
I’m giving you my life so take me
‘Cause I could never live without you now

Now I finally see the reason
Because I was made to be yours alone”

Roe v Wade – 41 years later

I am pro-life and I don’t back down from my stance. Over the last few months I have been doing a lot of research on abortions and what they entail. I was absolutely horrified at how an abortion is actually executed. Normally includes dismembering body parts to get the baby out. Sometimes the baby is breathing when first extracted. We would never imagine such a horrific death on anyone, yet millions are executed every day because of the “inconvenience” that there existence would pose on the mother’s life.

As pro-life as I am, I am also rational. To eradicate abortions people need to step up to adopt. Adoption needs to become more accessible and the stigma of an unwanted pregnancy needs to be eradicated. And this change needs to start in the church.

A few weeks ago a lady enlightened me saying abortion will never be illegal until the church can accept a pregnant women asking for forgiveness in the same manner as a women who had an abortion asking for a forgiveness. The church needs to step up and embrace the women who need our help. There are many obstacles that women face (especially when in high school or college) that creates a feeling of despair and lack of options. T

The church needs to step up and be responsible, creating innovative ways to help that manifest in meaningful solutions. Rather than just saying “abortion is murder” making women feel horrible and alone. We should be embracing these women and creating options that not only save the baby, but also the mother and her future.

Land of the Living – Roo Panes

Grace Hatton the Author's Blog

In short this song is beautiful. But more than that its aspiring and motivates me to actually live. From what I can tell Roo Panes is a relatively unknown British artist, but trust me once you’ve heard this song you won’t be able to stop listening to him. I dare say he might be the next Ed Sheeran.

Everyone Should Volunteer….

Once I graduated from College I realized I had a lot of time on my hands, and while I am taking a year off before going to graduate school I decided to volunteer. I honestly thought it would be difficult to volunteer, with a lot of hoops to jump through. But it was actually really simple. I found somewhere that I would like to know more about/potential career path and emailed them.

“26% of Americans volunteer at some point each year”

The place I volunteer is a crisis pregnancy center, they give free pregnancy tests, counseling, ultrasounds, and material services (clothes, diapers, formula, etc..) I wasn’t sure how I could be of use, but I found my own way of helping the center, I volunteer one day a week, in the morning i am kind of the receptionist helping clients when they come in, getting materials and giving information. In te afternoon I have begun to build a database for them. All there information is held on paper with no backups online. I absolutely love creating databases so I offered to build one. Volunteering is honestly giving me the same experience as if i was doing an internship, without all the hassle of filling out paperwork each week.

If you are interested in a certain field, you should volunteer. It is very rewarding, I wish I could volunteer in more sectors. It also looks amazing on your resume…
