BIG BIG NEWS!

Stay tuned for the BIG BIG NEWS because we have two other news to tell you about first!

We just received the SaveOne Men’s Study in Spanish! WOO HOO! (insert happy dance here) My friend, Brad Mattes, president of Life Issues Institute, planted the seed that made this moment happen, so we are forever grateful to him. We should have the men’s Spanish book printed by the SaveOne Summit.  (The women’s study is already printed in Spanish).

Which brings me to the second news, Brad is also one of our speakers at the upcoming Summit happening September 7-9. I hope you have your calendars marked for that weekend! You will receive more details soon. We would love to have you as our guest! But now for the….

BIG BIG NEWS!

As many of you know, SaveOne operates a little differently from most non-profits. We pay no salaries, and most of our services are donated. For example, the national headquarters, where we have been for the last 12 years, has been completely donated to us rent free; we only pay utilities. It’s located in an all brick two-story office park in a great area just north of Nashville. The continuing generosity of our landlord has been astronomical!

This couple is selling the space and has offered it to SaveOne at an unbelievable price, considering Nashville’s real estate market right now. We operate completely debt free and are going to continue that trend, so it is imperative to us that every dollar coming in to reach people goes right back out reaching people.

With that said, we have to raise $150,000 by the end of the year to purchase our headquarters. I believe God spoke clearly that this is what we should do. This amount of money not only purchases the condo, but also pays taxes, association fees, closing costs, etc. We have had $4100 in donations so far, leaving us with  $145,900 still to raise.

We are asking, as one of our SaveOne friends, if you would partner with us in this leap of faith to provide a permanent ministry center for SaveOne. Consider requesting that your business, ministry, church, or pregnancy center donate, or even think about donating personally. We are so excited about this endeavor as this launching point is going to give us the opportunity to help men, women, and families recover after abortion on an even greater scale.

Please prayerfully consider this request. We need your help. Thank you, and I mean THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for donating, for your prayers, for believing with us in faith that this money will come in!

To donate you can go to www.saveone.org and click “donate”.

Thanks for leaping in faith with us!

A Reward Worth the Stretch

We are so excited to welcome FOUR new chapters of SaveOne in the month of February.

*Elkin, NC

*Ft. Riley, KS

*Wilson, NC

*Sparta, NC

“Thrilled” is a good word to use that explains how we feel when a new church or pregnancy center wants to start teaching our Bible studies. At that moment we welcome them in as a new chapter of SaveOne.

Have you ever thought about starting a chapter in your church? Maybe you have never had an abortion, or you don’t feel qualified to teach the studies. No worries. We have done all the startup work for you! We have a pastor’s letter and promotional video we can send to you to introduce this idea to your pastor; chapter tools that will help you know when and how to announce the class; advertising tips and ideas for a more successful class; and, your own personal chapter coordinator assigned to your state as a resource to help in any capacity.

Introducing SaveOne to your church or pregnancy center may seem a little out of your comfort zone, but I can tell you from personal experience the reward is worth the stretch. The men, women, and families you will reach will be eternally grateful to you. Here are a few of the things you will personally witness by having SaveOne at your church:

  • Lives transformed
  • Marriages restored
  • Men and women becoming leaders
  • Relationships with children improved
  • Self-worth returned

These men and women return to their communities, homes, jobs, and churches, and they become the people God always intended them to be before they chose abortion.

Changing lives is what abortion recovery is all about! We truly believe that word-of-mouth will end abortion in our country and around our world. These men, women, and families become a voice for the issue of abortion. We like to call them our “Army of Truth Tellers”!

But we need you! We need your involvement through adding to this army by starting a chapter of SaveOne in your area. It’s easy, and we will show you how! Please contact us today to get started.

OTHER WAYS TO HELP SAVEONE

If you are in or around the Middle Tennessee area and shop at Kroger, did you know you can opt for a percentage of your purchase to go to SaveOne? Go to www.Kroger.com and click on “Community Rewards”. (And if you haven’t checked in a while, will you please make sure you are still listed as helping SaveOne? For some reason, the organization you pick will fall off after a year.)

Also, through Amazon, you can also click Amazon Smile and list SaveOne as your charity of choice. A percentage of what you purchase through Amazon will come to us.

These are two ways to help SaveOne that do not cost you a dime! Of course, we could also use your donations. In short, we reach more people when we have the resources to do so. Therefore, we are looking for people to partner with us for $25 per month. Perhaps your church can do this. Or maybe you personally feel led to support our ministry long-term in this way.

Thank you in advance for all your help and support.

Transform Your Community with 1 Simple Step

What an awesome year it has been already! We have added 3 new chapters, with twice as many in the works. Please welcome Golconda, IL; Pinedale, WY; and Casper, WY.

We couldn’t be happier with TWO pregnancy centers and a church now having a new avenue of outreach. When these leaders start advertising they offer SaveOne abortion recovery, they will begin to change the stigma of the Church. People in their communities will know immediately they are able to enter these buildings and feel love and acceptance, not judgment and condemnation. 

SaveOne as an outreach for your church or pregnancy center results in a lasting, loving, and transforming change. Here are a few things you experience or observe when you start using SaveOne to reach out to your community:

*Love shown to those who feel rejected after this choice

*Marriages reconciled through forgiveness after the abortion

*Lives transformed through the healing power of Jesus Christ

*Salvation found by those who are healing from the experience

*Men becoming the heads of their households again

*Women allowing the past to no longer dictate their future

*Families restored and healthy relationships formed

*The freedom to openly talk about abortion without mentioning controversial politics

These are just a few of the benefits added to YOUR church and community when you take SaveOne as your own and start reaching outside the four walls of the church. By welcoming those who feel damaged and rejected by the Church, the Church suddenly becomes a place of acceptance to those who had felt it a place of condemnation. The enemy loves to tell the post-abortive to keep the abortion a secret because of the Church’s response, but SaveOne proves that being open about the experience sets people free:

“The ministry of SaveOne has literally exploded in our church. When we first offered the class at Cornerstone Church, I thought I might discover the subject was taboo. The response was quite the opposite. I have watched men and women discover that forgiveness and cleansing really are available for every sin and mistake. The people of my church are so absolutely behind the ministry that I have enjoyed riding the wave of momentum with them as SaveOne has reached far beyond the walls of the local church to offer hope to an incredibly damaged part of our society.”  Maury Davis, Head Pastor, Cornerstone Church, Madison, TN

If you would like for SaveOne to be in your church, contact us and we will help you every step of the way. To be an official chapter of SaveOne, the cost is FREE and the results are phenomenal. Hope to hear from you soon!

Be sure to tell others to go to saveone.org and sign up for our newsletter to get my latest e-book, “Abortion and You”. THANKS!

Shake off pain…put on thankful

As we wind down this year at SaveOne I can’t help but reflect over 2016 and think about the things, people, and moments I am thankful for. Personally, this has been the hardest year our family has ever faced with the loss of my precious nephew in March. Our whole family is still reeling and grieving from this moment that changed all our lives forever. The only thing that keeps our momentum is knowing he is safe from harm, is happy, is with his beautiful daughter Addison, and we will see him again someday. I thank God for His assurance that He has my sweet Micheal in His arms.  Sometimes the only thing that gets a person through a loss is to be thankful for all he does have in the moment and allow God to heal the wound.

As we have traveled this year with SaveOne to places like Lewisburg, TN; Elkin, NC; Yerevan, Armenia; Vienna, Austria; Saginaw, MI; Oklahoma City, OK, and many more, we have seen and witnessed God completing the grieving process in so many lives. The loss through abortion is a weight hung around men, women, and families’ necks until a Divine interruption occurs and God is allowed to change people’s focus. Once the focus is shifted, those who suffer, stop looking at the pain of the loss and start thanking God for the freedom He offers after abortion.

Seeing people transformed around the world through SaveOne is absolutely overwhelming sometimes. The gratitude I feel for His hand being so heavy upon this ministry is more than I can put in to words. For that, I am thankful.

I am also thankful for the balloon release photos I received yesterday that took place at a SaveOne Night of Honor. I am thankful that I got to meet a doctor who used to be an abortionist, but after meeting Jesus, has dedicated her life to giving free medical care to pregnant moms. I am thankful for the first SaveOne Europe Summit happening this year that was a smashing success. I am thankful for the man who has donated our office space free of charge for over 10 years. I am thankful for a lady whom I have grown to love and respect so much who has donated her time as our accountant for over 10 years. I am thankful for the numerous churches who have invited us in this year who are helping us stop abortion around the world. I am thankful for every single person who has partnered with us as a monthly donor. I am thankful for the happiness I feel when I see someone wearing our SaveOne t-shirts. I am thankful for the people who have signed up for Kroger Community Rewards and named SaveOne as their charity of choice. I am thankful we started 30 new chapters of SaveOne this year. I am thankful for every encouraging email and phone call we get because each one really makes a difference. I am thankful for my friend who edits these newsletters free of charge and has for many years.

I could continue on for another page. Yes, there is much warfare surrounding this subject. Yes, we fight off all kinds of attacks that you cannot even imagine. And, yes, we get weary. But seeing this list of things for which to be thankful reminds us that our mission is always greater than any battle or pain we might experience.

As we enter in to this season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, let us not focus on the pain of the year, but rather focus on what there is to be thankful for.

Thank you for making 2016 one of the greatest years SaveOne has ever experienced.This is how we picture our partners!

Thank you for your financial giving, your prayers, and your encouragement for us. We are grateful beyond words for your involvement! You are all heroes to us!

Remember SaveOne.org is an excellent place to shop for Christmas gifts, giving our books, t-shirts, and bracelets! Your purchases help us reach more people!

 

 

Prison…or Platform?

I listened to a podcast this week by a pastor named Carl Lentz. He said these words, “Your pain can be your prison or your platform, it’s your choice.” When he spoke those words I instantly thought of the millions of men and women who have yet to understand their pain can be a thing of the past…their pain can be forgiven…their pain can be dropped like a bad habit. imagesbondageThese men and women do not realize they can walk free from their pain because with human eyes the aftermath of an abortion cannot be fixed. So the enemy ensnares them making their pain their prison.

That’s where you come in. As a chapter leader for SaveOne, you literally hold the keys to unlock their prison and set them free. It’s not anything magical you are doing, you are just taking them by the hand and leading them into truth. And what does God’s Word say about truth? It sets us free!!!

You may not think you are making a huge difference because you only have 1 or 2 who come through your SaveOne classes at a time. But I promise you, the difference you are making will be felt, seen, and lived out for generations to come. You are breaking the chains that bind people because you are being that willing vessel led by God to speak His word, and further His message.

Not everyone is willing to be used in that way. It’s tough and warfare like no other, I know from personal experience. The enemy hates you and hates what you do. All the more reason we have to keep on marching forward until we experience victory!

images-1I am so proud of every one of you for putting up the fight, for not backing down, for standing up for what is right, and for putting yourselves on the line to save babies, to save women from this horrid choice, and to save men from this devastating loss. So if no one has said thank you lately I’m saying it now THANK YOU! You are the catalyst to keep SaveOne going.

Please let us know by getting in touch with your chapter coordinator if you need prayer, have questions, need books, or just however we can help you. We are here for you every step of the way.

Love you all very very much!

Sheila and the entire staff of SaveOne

Promises, Promises

Be careful what you promise!

When I started SaveOne, I remember promising God I would go wherever, speak to whomever, and do whatever it takes to get the job done. That “job” you might ask? Seeing abortion end in my country and around the world. Making a promise like that was easy when it was made at an altar, knelt down on padded carpet floors, in a comfortable climate controlled building. The whole premise of that promise sounds romantic and adventurous. But when push comes to shove, does that promise mean traveling to dangerous places?

Of course it does. When the doors opened to share my heart in the Middle East, I wasn’t as thrilled as I had been for opportunities in Europe, where nice hotels are plentiful and Europeans with a heart like mine reside.

Armenia? I don’t even know where that is on the map! Seriously…I had to Google it. When I saw their borders included Azerbaijan, Iran, Turkey, and Russia I was a little less than thrilled about the promise I had made when I started my mission.

My husband and I returned from Armenia just 5 days ago. It was thrilling, and at the same time so incredibly humbling that God even allowed me to go and meet the beautiful people of this nation. Once I arrived and started experiencing the culture and seeing the great need for SaveOne in this country I was ecstatic God made a way for me to live out my promise. We are already planning our return in 2017. So be careful not to carelessly make promises to God—be ready to keep them because He will challenge you.

This trip included the first ever SaveOne Europe Summit. Sonja Horswell (our SaveOne Europe Director) and her team did a fantastic job of bringing together 12 European nations who are all teaching SaveOne. What an awesome moment for our ministry as we saw firsthand the lives being changed, and abortion being stopped around our world. All of this happens because YOU give, YOU pray, YOU encourage us, and YOU are getting people into these classes to hear of God’s truth, grace, and forgiveness after abortion.

I believe the lives of the American team we took over there will be forever changed because of all they saw God is doing through SaveOne. Thank you for making this happen!

We are adding chapters of SaveOne weekly, and we want to add even more! If you or your church wants to teach SaveOne as a small group study, we have information to give you. Please contact us and we will send you a pastor’s packet either electronically, or through snail mail. We have done the homework for you, so starting a chapter of SaveOne is extremely easy!

One of the ways you can support SaveOne without costing you anything is to sign up at Amazon Smiles and name SaveOne as your charity. Be sure to check the one in Hendersonville, TN. Every time you shop on Amazon Smiles a portion of your purchase will go to SaveOne!

Thank you for all you do to help SaveOne. We appreciate you more than you can possibly imagine.

 

How Small is Your Comfort Zone?

imagesEsther: Heroine? Fool? Insane? Psycho? What would be your description? Anyone who has read the book of Esther knows the outcome of the story. *Spoiler alert ahead* She enters an impossible battle, it looks as though she will probably die, but she wins in the end and the enemy is defeated and killed. Reminds me of a scene from “Lord of the Rings” when the character named Gimli says in regards to returning the ring, “Small chance of success, certainty of death, well what are we waiting for?”

Knowing the end of the story we can all proudly say we would call Esther a heroine. If that same scenario were unfolding today say…with your sister, your niece, your husband or wife…would you encourage such action?

Esther wasn’t willing to remain quiet. There were thousands of lives at stake. She drew on the courage that comes only from above and she fasted THREE DAYS with no food or water. Can you imagine? She gathered the Jewish people, plus her assistants, to fast with her. Concentrated shared fasting and praying is effective. You will see how successful this effort was in the end.

More than likely she knew she could die, but she went through the painfully frightening progression of approaching the king, planning and executing the banquets, and well…read the story and you will find out all she went through. (Esther-Holy Bible) thIn the end, because of her unwillingness to remain quiet, a whole generation was saved. Thousands of lives would continue on as families, babies were born, marriages endured, family outings were shared, and holidays were celebrated. Who could believe how Esther and her family were blessed? God blesses good decisions. He also blesses those moments when we step outside our comfort zone on the faith of our fasting and prayers, and trust Him and only Him.

th-1

One of my favorite quotes is by Theodore Roosevelt, “Better to dare mighty things and fail, than to live in a gray twilight where there is neither victory nor defeat.”

How would millions of lives be different today had Esther remained quiet and stayed comfortable in a gray twilight?

What are you keeping quiet about?

Use Esther as an example of what could happen in the end. Don’t avoid the lives of the unborn, or helping to restore hope, healing, and restoration to those who have already made the wrong choice because it may be too controversial, or too dangerous, or too political, or people will think you’re crazy. Staying in a comfort zone is boring. Be counted among the “Esthers” of the world who have risked it all and were blessed beyond belief for it!

My interview with a disc jockey…

You guys hear from me all the time, so I wanted to switch things up a little this month. My friend, Mary Fainn was a disc jockey on a local radio station in Guntersville, AL when I first met her. The tables were turned then and she was interviewing me for the station. I traveled to Guntersville for the interview, not knowing I was about to meet a lifelong friend and SaveOne advocate. We have seen each other through incredible transitions in both our lives. We’ve cried together, laughed uncontrollably together, and celebrated great victories together. I cherish this woman. As a chapter leader of SaveOne you are never just left out on your own to fend for yourself and figure things out. We pour into you and forge a relationship that is strong. 

thThat’s the thing about SaveOne. We become family, not just business relationships. When we get down in the mud of life with each other we can’t help but bond and become brothers and sisters. So…see what my disc jockey friend is up to now! 

Sheila: Tell us about the pregnancy center where you hold SaveOne. 

Mary: (Gate Pregnancy Resource Center) We help women who are pregnant until that child is one year old.  We offer everything a new mom will need including maternity clothes and classes.  We offer SaveOne to our clients as well as the community.  I have been in Harrisburg NC for 2 years and before that Albertville AL for 12 years. 

Sheila: How long have you been a chapter leader with SaveOne?

Mary: 14 years I think?

Sheila: Why have you stayed with SaveOne all these years?

Mary: I believe in SaveOne and have had the privilege of watching God heal and restore women and men through this Bible Study.  The support of the SaveOne team is top notch and professional.  I know they pray for all the chapters and are willing to go the extra mile to help leaders. I know the scriptures used in SO are the healing balm God uses to restore people.

Sheila: What has been the greatest challenge in abortion recovery that God has helped you overcome?

Mary: Sharing my story.  I was so terrified to tell my secret sin but once I received healing and God called me to help others, I realized it was not my story to keep secret but that it was God’s story of redemption and love to share.

Sheila: What did you learn in that process?

Mary: I learned that the best way to fight for life is to share my story.  The best way to allow God to use me is to share my story.  The best way to show love and compassion to hurting people is sharing my story.  The best way to honor God is to tell HIS story of healing. Pray and keep “pounding” (sorry I live in NC).  Don’t give up, don’t be afraid to tell your story and share about healing even when people look at you weird. It’s ok to have just one or two in class, God brought them there.  Remember it is HIS ministry and HE will provide all you need and the words to say.  Keep yourself rested and renewed so that God can pour into you. Trust that lil voice that says I know I’m suppose to do this and ignore the but….  Utilize others who have been doing the ministry they are full of encouragement and information.  Pray.  

I just have to take a break right here and say BRAVO MARY!!!!! She gets it. She understands12047132_912408835518773_8345311759857520241_n the power behind her story and she has dedicated her life to making sure others find their story, their voice, that will save babies, save heartaches to moms and dads, and end abortion in its tracks!6. What is one piece of advice you would give to new chapter leaders that you wish you had when you started?

Sheila: What is the funniest thing that has happened to you in a SaveOne class, or while you were working with SaveOne?

Mary: I was going to speak at a church in the pouring rain and my sun roof popped the seal and I was drenched. They were great and I got some participants.  Another time, same car, my horn just went off and got stuck.  I pulled into the parking lot of the church with my horn blaring.  They had a mechanic there and he fixed it for me.  OYE

Sheila: What is the greatest moment that has happened to you in a SaveOne class?

Mary: I love it when someone has the break through and you can see it and hear it.  The best one was a couple who were going to get divorced, I ask him to wait until she finished the class, he agreed.  She had done every bible study, counseling etc… he did not give it much hope.  That was 8 years ago and they now do prison ministry together and she co-leads SaveOne.  God is so good! 

Sheila: Will you write a prayer for the other SaveOne chapter leaders?

Mary: Dear Lord, I ask that you cover each leader with your feathers, keep each one of us under your wing.  Whisper in our ears the words to say to those we encounter.  Bring us the hurting and broken and use us to minister your love and restoration to broken families.  Give us ideas and wisdom to reach out in our communities, state and country.  Guide each class and night of honor.  Use us to end abortion.  Give us boldness to proclaim life and love through Jesus Christ, the truth.  In Christ Name, Amen.    

See now why I cherish this woman? She is a Godsend and making an incredible impact on the men, women, and families in and around the Charlotte, NC area. 

Please don’t ever feel as though you are alone. You are NOT alone. SaveOne is here to help you, train you, and pour into you so you can teach this Bible study in your church or pregnancy center.

Love you guys all the way up to the moon and back! 🙂

 

Why YOU are not helpless this political season

So many of us these days are skeptical about the political process. We are looking at the th-2candidates and freaking out about our choices. I have friends who believe Trump will be the next Ronald Reagan, and I have friends opting out of the process because they are so disgusted. If you’re like me, this constant screaming in my ears is on my last nerve…

This alarming moment in my countries history is why I choose to remember not a Republican, Democrat, The Supreme Court, Donald Trump, nor Hillary Clinton, or any other politician is my source! As a Christian I cannot in good conscience opt out of the process. But there are things I can do to make a difference in the arena where I believe the greatest difference can be made…the local church.

thFor years we have been taught to believe the abortion issue is a political one. This is a myth; a lie that has been repeated so many times our society believes it. Life/Abortion is talked about plainly and very clearly in God’s Word. He hates hands that shed innocent blood (Isaiah 1:15, Proverbs 6:17). He formed and created us in our mother’s womb, knowing every day we would live before we even lived one of them (Psalm 139:13-16). Child sacrifice was considered a detestable act (Deuteronomy 12:31). He considered the life form in a mother’s womb to be a baby (Luke 1:44). I encourage you to do your own study and you will find God placed great emphasis on LIFE and every person created in His image.

With the world in the state it is in, it’s time we take the issues regarding LIFE back from politics and place it squarely where it belongs and that is in the local church. You may feel inadequate to tackle this issue, but I promise you, when you open the doors to help those who are hurting after abortion, or maybe duplicate your local pregnancy center services, you will see great things happen. You will see lives be saved, the stigma of abortion start to weaken, people openly talking of this issue and wanting to get involved, and you will see God at His best doing what He does so beautifully and that is transforming and restoring those who seek Him.

Abortion is a subject close to God’s heart. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, so abortion is everything he is about! God sent us His Son, Jesus for LIFE…for us to live abundantly (John 10:10). When we come alongside in step with what is the very heartbeat of God, we experience a satisfaction and knowing God’s perfect will is being completed. There is no other feeling like it!

Please join us today by bringing SaveOne to your church, pregnancy center, or ministry. We have done all the homework for you. We can send you a pastor’s packet to take to your pastor, or answer any questions you may have. We are here to help every step of the way.

Also, check out our latest video on our YouTube Channel by clicking on youtube.com/saveoneinfo then do us a favor and share it as often as you can. Our message is being heard and we are growing by leaps and bounds and that is because of YOU!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT THROUGH PRAYER AND FINANCIAL GIVING!

Don’t Live with Mediocrity any Longer!

imagesforkGod’s destiny for you never included abortion. When you chose to take a left fork onto the road called Abortion, you veered off into an area that wasn’t part of His plan. He wants to steer you back on the road He created for you whether you are a man, woman, sibling, or loved one who is grieving a past abortion. He wants to take this experience and turn it into something beautiful for Him. Only God can do that, and He will do it if you allow Him to.

God knows your heart. He knows your sorrow. He knows your regret. He knows your shame. He has seen how you have tried to deal with this on your own for so long. He has seen the ways you have worked to keep it a secret. Now that you are dealing with the past, it’s not a shock or a surprise to Him. He is happy that you have chosen this time in your life to lay this burden down.

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:37–39, NLT).

I believe this is one of the most beautiful Scriptures in the entire Bible. Nowhere does it say, “But if you have an abortion, God will not take you back, or love you anymore.” No, it says nothing can separate us from His love.

Stop for a minute. Close your eyes, and picture yourself with a heavy, wooden yoke around your neck. Imagine how your body has been damaged, carrying that yoke of abortion. Now picture God reaching down and breaking it, and crushing it. Not one piece is left that you can hold in your fingertips—all that remains is dust. Give this yoke to God right now. Only God can destroy the yoke so it can never resume its previous position.

Don’t accept this bondage from your abortion any longer. Don’t live in mediocrity. Set a imagesbondagenew standard for your life. Take the limits off God and allow Him to take the limits off your life. Step out in faith, and believe God is about to do a great thing!

If you are ready to start this journey contact me personally at sheila@saveone.org. We have an entire staff of people ready, willing, and able to help you. Don’t put this off another day. If you are a friend or loved one who has watched someone in your life implode because of a past abortion then by all means forward this blog or share it on social media. Thanks! The people you reach with this truth will be eternally grateful to you for your help.
