You’ll also hear about efforts to provide two new Stork Buses that will bring love, hope, and options to women and girls.
Speaker Bob Lenz and recording artist Holly Starr have partnered with Save The Storks to present an evening of encouragement. It’s an opportunity to think through a compassionate, grace-filled lifestyle offering practical help to expectant mothers — mothers who find themselves with questions about their babies and their futures. Join us in these conversations about life.
