Harbor Light Family Resource Center
Hi Everyone, this is Jenny Boyce again, this is our third week of traveling on a Friday to visit our listening area pregnancy resource centers for “Michigan’s Biggest Baby Shower”, and it is the first week that we had clear weather and safe travel!! Fred Young, our morning show jock and Program Director and I left Friday, January 22nd about 1:30 pm for East Tawas. We arrived safely after a two hour drive and found a chair out front on the street reserving a parking spot for us!! The Harbor Light Family Resource Center has moved and has had several locations in the last year, and they are very excited about their new building at 310 Newman St. there. They have lots of space for counseling rooms, a baby mart, a lounge area, a board room, and rooms to expand a medical center. They have an ultra sound machine and they are in the process of a fundraising campaign to raise $15,000.00 to train and get licensed to use it. Please contact them if you are interested in supporting this campaign, if only 60 people could give $250.00 they would have their goal!! It is amazing what happens when we all ban together with God’s mission in mind! Sharon Koenitzer is the Executive Director there and she is a wonderful leader who has sacrificed much to take this role as executive director and she is doing a great job. DeeDee Marshal is her right hand man as Assistant Director. They have many volunteers and board members and friends of the ministry who have gathered around Sharon and DeeDee to help them succeed in mentoring, counseling, giving and encouraging mothers and fathers to save their babies and support life. I was so touched by a sign hanging in the office area that read, “Your home is where your story starts”. We all think of the story book home, but unfortunately many do not experience that, Jesus Christ comes right into our hearts and gives us eternal life and makes our heart His Home when we submit it to Him. Your story may not be the perfect storybook, but when we ask Jesus to come into our life, our story begins anew, and home begins right where you are. These great people are there to come along side you and assist you in your journey. There is no judgment, no shouting, no intimidation, they are full of love and compassion, and showing mom’s how there are three choices, keep your baby, give your baby up for adoption or abort your baby. After you choose, you will never be the same person, because you cannot go backwards, they are there to minister healing, love , and help to you. May God Bless the ministry at Harbor Light Pregnancy and Family Resource Center in East Tawas, and may you choose life as a result of knowing them. #myheartchristshome
