Eyes of Life stories

“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). – Jesus

Katie

Diapers. Tiny socks. Gently used strollers. See how one congregation is caring for moms, babies and families in need—in both body and soul—through a program called Swaddling Clothes.



Kevin

Meet Kevin and Maggie Karner, a couple who faithfully defended life even in death.



Jasmine

Meet Jasmine, a young woman who discovered God’s love and a new kind of family at Shepherd of the City Lutheran Church in Philadelphia.



Jennifer

Human trafficking. Prostitution. An absent mother. An unborn child. For many, it would be too much. But for this child of God, it’s really just the beginning.



Sheryl

To some, saving a life—or even changing one—might seem like an impossibility. But in one maternity home in Florida for a pastor and his wife, it’s just a dream come true.



Phil

He’s outnumbered six to one by wife Sara and five adopted daughters from Colombia, and the Rev. Phil Zielinksi wouldn’t have it any other way.



Jesus

Jesus sees you… with eyes of life. Jesus gives us eyes of life to see all life as a gift from God.



Diego

Meet Diego, a boy who likes Legos, loves his pesky little brother and is grateful that his biological mother spared his life.



Norman

Meet the Rev. Dr. Norman Nagel – well known professor, pastor and preacher – who, despite suffering the effects of a stroke, rejoices in Christ’s gifts of value, worth and honor.



Sabrina

Meet the Montgomery family — especially son Brody who was born with Down Syndrome — who, like any other family, love pizza, tacos and each other.



Jean

Meet Jean, who mourns the death of her child but who is reminded daily that “Jesus is always with me, even when I was on the hard, cold, abortion table.”



Jing

Meet Jing, a young man from China who, thanks to social media, visited Indiana, came home to a family in Nebraska and is learning that “We are never outside of God’s love.”
