Faith in Action

I have joined  Walk for Their Lives.
Walk for their Lives is a 12 week walking challenge as we raise money for the unborn. Have someone sponsor your miles, for example a penny for each mile or a dime or even a flat rate such as $50 for each 1,000 miles. Keep track of your miles, post them weekly, win door prizes, get your feet moving for their lives!
June 12 to August 28 - 12 week
Check here for more info.
I have opted out of running races so that I can donate the entry fees.  All the money saved and collected from donations will be distributed among the following pro-life ministries.

Missionaries of Charity – Queen of Peace Shelter ~ The Queen of Peace Shelter provides temporary shelter and meals for single pregnant women and their minor children.

Culture of Life Family Services ~ Culture of Life Family Services is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the entire community through family medical care, natural family planning education, psychological counseling, and spiritual direction to women and families in crisis pregnancies.


Bishop Gallegos Maternity Home ~ The Bishop Gallegos Maternity Home is a home for women who are pregnant and in need of shelter, food, safety, comfort and support during their pregnancy and for a short time afterwards.  Their goal is to empower these women to become self-sufficient and independent in their return to the community with their babies or to facilitate adoption as an option if they so choose.


Stand True Christ Centered Pro Life Ministries - We are committed to establishing a culture of life, and bringing light to a generation covered by darkness. We believe that the only true way to end abortion is to turn hearts to Christ. Though it is important for the unjust laws to change, we must first turn the hearts of our nation. (the president, Bryan is a recent convert to the Catholic Church.)

Here is my log for the challenge, Walk for Their Lives:


Here is my log for 2011:
122 miles from June 12-Aug 28

I will post a log of my miles.  It will be located in my sidebar.

"Faith in action is love, and love in action is service.  By transforming that faith into living acts of love, we put ourselves in contact with God Himself, with Jesus our Lord." ~ Mother Teresa
