Mobile Clinic Update:
We want to let everyone know that we have decided to park the Clinic bus until Spring due to two critical reasons:
We are willing to travel and help where and when we can and we won't stop, but we need your prayers for favor. Thank you and God bless you!
Thank you, Holly!
We want to say a heartfelt "Thank You" to Holly Babcock, who has decided to retire. Holly always had a smile for anyone walking through the door and desired that all our clients come to know the Lord. We wish her all the best, relaxing and enjoying time with her family. Thank you and God bless you, Holly!
January is the month set aside to re-commit ourselves to remembering how precious life is. This year, the Sunday for observance falls on January 22nd. We have a short video which we will be asking our friend churches to show to their congregations. We're also adding it here. Please remember to pray this month for our frontline fight for life, as well as for two organizations gearing up to help new moms bypass the state systems. These are Christian organizations, offering practical help like giving rides, help with babysitting, mentoring as a family or individual, and helping with the many physical needs moms encounter when trying to raise a child. The Christian safety net, if you will!
These two organizations which need your volunteer help are:
Walking with Moms in Need: https://www.walkingwithmoms.com/
and Embrace Grace: https://embracegrace.com/
Let us know if you need more information on how to deepen your involvement.
As always, we pray for you and for LIFE in Vermont!
We wish you a Merry Christmas...
We have been very busy finishing out the old year and getting geared up for the new, but it's high time to catch you up a bit!
We hosted an Open House for all of our friends on December 7 and 46 people attended for food and fellowship! We just want everyone who couldn't attend to know that we couldn't run this center without you and appreciate each and every one of you. We hope you can join us next year!
And again this year, several friends of the ministry got together and donated gifts for the clients. We are so grateful to Diane Gates and her friends who choose a client each year and purchase gifts just for her from her Christmas list! This year's client was just so happy with her beautiful earrings, hair appointment, baby bath toys and organic baby food, that she was just beaming!
Then there was another mountain of gifts that came in from several friends, representing local Catholic churches, three separate times. One man brought in his family's offerings (several bags and a box or more) because he missed the pickup date. We were able to share with him how a stocking from the main delivery earlier had just been a "God thing", as it contained exactly what the client who received it desperately needed. When Deb and Grace saw the stocking, they both thought of the same client as the recipient. God is SO good; she was just so grateful for everything.
We're posting just a few photos to give you just an idea of the abundance meant to bless the clients. We hope that the Lord blesses each and every one of you with a peaceful Christmas season, filled with God's love and grace. Thank you!

Well, it's been an interesting day so far. My devotional reading with my husband yesterday morning was titled: "When God says No". Waking up to an amendment to our state constitution that will usher in great evil and watching lost people taking positions of power, I have to say I was forewarned. So where does the ministry of Aspire Now go from here?
As far as Article 22 passing as it pertains to us, there are many things that could happen. We are contacting the national pro-life organizations that we partner with, such as CareNet, Heartbeat International, Save the Storks, Alliance Defending Freedom, and more. We will be asking for guidance and hopefully legal wisdom as well. We appreciate your prayers for wisdom and discernment moving forward. We also need prayer to shield us from frivolous lawsuits and violence against this peaceable ministry.
With the legislature in Montpelier still solidly Democratic/Progressive, we fully expect that a bill that was tabled this past session will be brought back for consideration against us. We are speaking of H.634: An act relating to pregnancy center fraud. This act is assuming guilt and is meant to directly target centers such as ours and to put us out of business.
We won't stop or back down. God has created and ordained all life and said it is good. As your local missionaries for the last 37 years, we are in a fierce spiritual battle. Many lives are at stake and we need you more than ever. We need both your physical and your spiritual support.
To learn more about all that we do and how you can help, please call us at 802-658-8046.
