In this episode, we summarize key points of the abortion bill passed in North Carolina that restricts abortions after 12 weeks. We also identify critical takeaways for sidewalk outreach teams. While this is specific to NC, the principles we discuss are widely applicable and can help those in similar ministries in other states grapple with the issue of abortion bills that restrict but may not abolish abortion.
In this episode, Daniel and Vicky explore the issue of the pro-abortion crowd using increasingly confrontational tactics to oppose sidewalk outreach teams. As sidewalk teams become more effective, inevitably the opposition will ramp up their efforts to hinder our work. Listen as we discuss how to navigate these challenges while still keeping our focus on the mission.

One of the fastest and most common ways Satan attacks a ministry is through sowing disunity in the members. This episode examines the very common and insidious danger of disunity.

In this episode, we also offer ways in which you can recognize the seeds of disunity and eradicate them.

One of the more challenging issues to deal with in expanding sidewalk outreach is commitment from new volunteers. We are always honored and grateful for the trustworthy and faithful volunteers who have often soldiered with us for years. However, many folks sign up with zeal and excitement but quickly fizzle out. This podcast helps to guide us in recognizing the reality of this issue but also suggests ways in which to...
One of the most encouraging stories from the sidewalk happened recently. A mom who chose life shared with us the turning point in her life.

In this episode, we also give 8 sidewalk tips gleaned from this story to further equip sidewalk teams.
Stephanie Reinhart, who is the Director of Restored Life, the abortion recovery arm of Love Life, speaks with us about the different ways abortion affects men. There are very few studies that explore the effect of abortion on men. Stephanie helps bring to light some of the common effects on men involved in the abortion of their child. She also helps us understand strategies for Sidewalk outreach teams as they minister...
The primary goal of Sidewalk Outreach is to bring glory to the Lord. Of course, we also want to know we're making a difference so it's helpful and encouraging to quantify the impact our work is having. Different sidewalk outreach teams and ministries often differ in how they count babies saved from abortion. In this episode, we give some practical things to consider as you think through how to most accurately count c...
We always try to match the women who choose life with a mentor who will disciple them, link them with resources, and be a friend and guide to them. On rare occasions, our sidewalk outreach team members have played that role as well. In this podcast, we interview sidewalk outreach team member, Debbie Hobson, who mentored a young lady very successfully. We glean wisdom in how to effectively do what Debbie was able to do...
We need to maintain a laser beam focus on our purpose for ministry on the sidewalks of abortion centers. This is not always easy and there are many distractions that can pull us away from what we are there to do or render us ineffective. The main culprit of distraction is our cell phones, but there are many sources of potential distraction. In this episode, we examine those potential distractions and offer encourageme...
Sidewalk outreach ministry is often fraught with discouragement. We should not add discouragement by falling into the comparison trap. When we compare ourselves with other sidewalk teams, we can either fall so short that we feel disheartened or grow jealous of their effectiveness. Neither is helpful! This podcast examines how we can avoid the comparison trap and reframe what we are experiencing into encouragement and ...
This is one of the most common questions sidewalk outreach teams hear as they counsel women to choose life over abortion. It is important not to dismiss the question, since at its core, it expresses a genuine underlying fear. However, it is equally important not to let that fear justify the murder of innocent reborn babies. This podcast gives practical tips on how to answer that common rationalization to abort.
The women we work with are typically in very desperate situations. They often have multiple needs and it is overwhelming for those helping them to prioritize the needs based on limited ministry resources. Even harder sometimes is assessing when a professed need is actually a want, not a necessity. This podcast provides strategies to help sidewalk outreach teams handle this issue from a Biblical perspective.
Getting and keeping sidewalk outreach volunteers is a continual issue. Sidewalk outreach is a very difficult ministry. At one point or another, most sidewalk volunteers ask themselves, “Is all this effort and struggle worth it?” In this episode, we answer that question with a resounding YES and Biblical support for our assurance.
Often, the women who come to abort tell us they are Christians and have submitted their lives to Jesus. Many believe they are going to heaven, and insist that they are good. In this episode, we talk about the need to challenge that deception and we give specific advice on how to do just that.
Many of the women we minister to who have chosen life and even submitted their lives to Jesus are blindsided when struggles continue or even accelerate. They question God and wonder why they are being punished or abandoned when they have made ALL the right choices. In this podcast, we outline how to help these women reframe their perceptions and conclusions in a God-honoring and empowering way.
In the book of Genesis, there are several first questions that God asks, Humans ask, and Satan asks. Exploring those questions and the core issues those questions raise can be very useful in helping us navigate the struggles and solutions from a Biblical perspective that we encounter in sidewalk outreach.
Sometimes, the women we meet at the abortion center are seeking an abortion because they do not know who the father of the baby is. In this podcast, we offer suggestions on handling this situation and some pitfalls to avoid in counseling a choice for life.
