Month of Prayer and Fasting for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey

Calling on members of all faiths to pray for a complete overturn of Roe v. Wade & Planned Parenthood v. Casey in the Dobbs v. Jackson case. Also, that the Iowa Supreme Court will overturn the invented Iowa State Constitutional “right to abortion” from 2018.

Our goal is to have every hour covered with two people from 7am to 7pm every day from June 1st to June 30th. This can be done in formal prayers, spontaneous prayer, meditating on the Bible, praying while working, doing a sacrifice during that hour, fasting from a meal, and the list goes on. For ideas or prayers, please reach out to our office.

Where you do it, is your preference! Let's surround the Court with prayers and intercession. Sign up today!

Book Club for Moms

We will be discussing the book, The Ultimate Makeover - The Transforming Power of Motherhood. The book club will take place at 11am on Tuesdays at a local park TBD beginning on Tuesday, June 21st until August 2nd. Kids and babies are welcome. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the outdoors while bonding over your vocation as mothers. For those who would like, pack a lunch and mingle afterwards as the kids continue to play.

The Puls Family

We’re the Puls and Beecher Family. God brought our families together 14 years ago. What a gift - God is so kind. A year ago this past January Mark got the first diagnosis of ALS, a terminal illness for which there is no cure. Seeking a second opinion, we were referred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. There we would receive a second diagnosis of ALS. We were advised to go make memories and to start preparing for the disease that will eventually take everything away from Mark…including his life.

It’s been just over a year since that diagnosis. Mark is now completely wheelchair bound. His breathing and strength continue to weaken daily. God has given us so many blessings and graces in the journey. Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness in considering to help us out. Everything helps with the carrying of this cross. Please pray for us as we do our best to do God’s will.
