We are for life!

In a world bent down and suffering under the darkness of abortion, euthanasia and death in all its forms, individual members of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) are standing tall to tell their stories.

A seasoned woman who had an abortion rejoices in Christ’s forgiveness. A young Chinese man with special needs is loved by his adopted family. A single mom chooses life for her son when urged to get an abortion.

These and other members of the LCMS are speaking up. By sharing their stories through the #eyesoflife campaign, they are boldly giving voice to what millions of others believe as well: that all life, from conception to natural death, is sacred, valued and a gift from God.

It is easy to get bogged down in what we are against, but with eyes of life, we rejoice in what we are for: God’s grace and mercy, Christ’s forgiveness and love, the Holy Spirit’s direction and nurturing … and life.


“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:4). – Jesus

About the stories

Kacey. Jing. Diego. Jean.
These are just a few of the stories of real people who have known real suffering but, greater still, have been on the receiving end of real grace, mercy, forgiveness and peace from our heavenly Father.


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