I (Amaris) enjoy listening to prolife podcasts and YouTube videos. It would be my dream to one day have an active role in campaigning for the lives of babies, but that is not something I am able to do at this point. Instead, God has given me some other ways to support prolife movements.
A few months back I posted a prayer challenge on my blog and invited others to join me in praying for God to touch the hearts of people who take the lives of babies. We also prayed for God to change the hearts of the moms so that they will choose life for their little ones.
Recently the Lord has given me a new idea to start putting together small mom/baby gifts to be given out to moms who have chosen to save their babies. Our first project has been to partner with a local mission that ministers to women outside a late term abortion mill. We put these bundles together for Christmas of 2020. This is hopefully just the beginning of the partnerships we will form. I have a great team that helps me with shopping for the items and assembling them into bundles. We can’t wait to see what God has in store for this newest facet of Lifeline Gifts!
As of February 2022 we have delivered about 150 layette bundles to local ministries who can distribute them to mothers who choose LIFE for their little one! We are always looking to expand and find more places that are in need of layettes. Please contact us if you know of any way we can help.
Spring 2022 update:
As of February 2022 we have delivered about 150 layette bundles to local ministries who can distribute them to mothers who choose LIFE for their little one! During 40 Days for Life this year, we have been able to expand to 4 main areas farther out from us within MO and over into IL, delivering over 120 layettes just in March 2022. We are always looking to expand and find more places that are helping those in need of a hand up. Please contact us if you know of any way we can help.
March 20, 2022: March for Life is going to be near us, in Jefferson City. We have already sent our “business card” bookmark to be put into the backpack given to the 1200 workers going out to march. We also plan to have a table set up with those bookmarks and a bundle displayed, for more publicity.
This video shows our recent layette bundle packing:
This is a list of items we will be putting in our bundles for Moms and babies:
For the baby: 2 newborn onesies, a sleeper, a receiving blanket, diapers, a hat, socks, a bottle, a pacifier, stuffed animal, and a homemade baby quilt.
For the Mom: A Bible, fuzzy socks, a comfy long-sleeved shirt, lotion, and a fridge magnet that has an inspirational message for Moms on it (pictured below).
Here’s a picture of the gift for the moms after being wrapped up in a neat little package!
A finished bundle, ready to go!
The estimated cost for one layette bundle is $45.
