Our goal to be a visible and tangible sponsor for MANY DIFFERENT causes and topics where we can spread the message of No Judgment. Just Love.™, will start with Maggie’s Place in Arizona on Sunday October 5, 2014 at the Arts Park, Tempe Town Lake.
Maggie’s Place – A Needed Resource
Maggie’s Place welcomes pregnant women into a loving and supportive community. Maggie’s Place provides for the immediate physical and emotional needs of their guests including shelter, food, clothing, and a supportive community. In addition, Maggie’s Place connects them to the appropriate agencies and resources including prenatal care, health insurance, low-cost housing, and education programs.
We honor this mission because the beginning of a baby’s life should be joyful, peaceful, safe, secure and absolutely surrounded by thoughts and actions of No Judgment. Just Love.™
We are posting an excerpt from this article by Melissa Peters:
Letting Divine Providence Provide
“I’ve heard this saying, “You must live with people to know their problems, and live with God in order to solve them,” (Peter Taylor Forsyth). It sounds nice, doesn’t it? It is a gentle reminder to have genuine, intentional relationships with people and a genuine, intentional relationship with God to help those people. But, I have to disagree with it.
It’s true that you know and understand people’s problems more intimately when you live with them. That is an important aspect of Maggie’s Place. Pregnancy is not meant to be experienced alone. We live in community here, so we share each other’s joys and successes, but we also share in each other’s suffering. We truly come to know the problems our moms have faced in the past and the problems they are facing now.
Many of our moms here at Maggie’s Place are facing some very overwhelming problems – court cases, possible jail time, substance abuse temptations, custody cases, unhealthy relationships, unemployment – not to mention the stress of being pregnant and caring for a new baby. We become intimately familiar with these problems.”
