I Believe

  • In one God, our Father, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

  • That God’s Word, from Genesis to Revelation, is the inspired and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

  • God the Father sent His one and only Son to die as payment for our sin.

  • God sent His Holy Spirit as a guide and comforter to lead us in following God’s Word.

  • God has a plan to prosper us in our faith and in our birth. His plan for our lives includes a plan for our births.

  • Drug-free and intervention-free births are best for mom and baby the vast majority of the time, but interventions can be life-saving and beneficial when used appropriately. And I’m grateful to live in a time where we have advanced technology to save lives when necessary. I, personally, am a product of a life-saving intervention, so I understand the weight of their importance.

  • Breastfeeding is a birthright and part of the natural plan that God laid out for His babies.  It is the optimal nutrition for Baby and it is healthiest for Mom. 

  • While there may be benefits, every intervention or supplementation also has risks to either mother or baby, if not both, and true informed consent includes being completely educated in the risks, benefits, and alternative options. Parents have the right to either consent to or refuse any procedure, treatment, supplementation, etc. after being educated in all areas.  "Consent" that is not fully informed, is not true consent. 

  • Natural Family Planning is the safest and healthiest method of birth control for the mother and is as effective as most other common methods. It honors our fertility, cycles, and God’s timing.

  • In parenting our children the way God parents us – by honoring our cries, keeping us close, having open lines of communication, and respecting the will and personality He gave us, all while we still honor His ultimate authority in our lives and walk in obedience to it.
