    8. Walk For Life LIVE

    We are thrilled to share that over $148,540 was raised at the Walk for Life. Because so many in our community decided to Join the Movement through generous giving, the funds raised will provide 123 women with The Pregnancy Network’s free services! 
    Over 500 participants took part in the event, both in person at Lawndale Baptist Church and virtually. This included an incredible team of 65 volunteers who helped to make this event a success.
    We recorded this podcast LIVE at the GSO Walk For Life so enjoy a handful of interviews with walkers, volunteers, and staff as we bring you along with us for the 2021 GSO Walk For Life.

    3. Finding Hope After Rape Conception: One Brave Mother's Story of Healing

    3. Finding Hope After Rape Conception: One Brave Mother's Story of Healing

    Meet Paula Peyton. Paula serves as the Executive Director for Hope after Rape Conception, a non-profit dedicated to assisting mothers who have suffered from rape. Paula’s story is extremely unique; her son was conceived as a result of gang rape, and she herself was also conceived as a result of rape. Her story has been featured by Live Action, Life Site News, and many more pro-life news sources.
    Most women who receive abortions after rape report being forced or coerced into the decision against their will. Paula shares her firsthand account of the pressure she encountered to receive an abortion from the most unlikely places. 
    Paula’s story of healing and redemption is inspiring. If you or someone you know has suffered from a rape experience, know you are not alone. You can reach out to Paula by visiting hopeafterrapeconception.org, or by contacting The Pregnancy Network at thepregnancynetwork.org.

Very helpful podcast

Thank you for acknowledging the pain of infant loss and miscarriage. Very helpful!

Meredith AW ,

Informative and Educational

Thanks so much for making these. I look forward to the new episode each week. Each one is applicable and educational to GPCC and our culture in general. Thanks for being thoughtful in the subjects you have discussed. Keep up the great work!

A great guide for beginners-intermediate

If you’re new to the discussion or need to re-familiarise yourself, this is a great podcast to listen to. The discussion doesn’t quite hit the advanced level, but everyone needs to be comfortable with at least the basics of the most important issue of our time.
I used to volunteer for these people, they’re great people. Full of heart and God’s love.

Only thing I would change is the audio balance. I’m not sure why I need one person only in my left ear and the other only in my right, but please fix that. Just a normal left-right balance is fine. Can be disorienting
