The LIGHT House
Christ Centered Support For Young Mothers and Their Babies
It is often difficult for a teenager experiencing an unplanned pregnancy to find a place that will support her choice to give birth to her baby instead of getting an abortion. The LIGHT House provides Christ-centered maternity care, adoption services and on-going ministry to young mothers and their babies in the Kansas City area.
If you or someone you know need support, call or text our HOPE Line at 816-916-4434. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the last thirty years, The LIGHT House has helped save the lives of hundreds of babies, enable hundreds of young ladies to become loving mothers and help complete families through adoption.

Thoughts from The LIGHT House President
By: Russ Martin
Lives Impacted and Changed (posted 02/27/2019)
The LIGHT House is truly making a difference in the lives of pregnant and parenting teens and young women and their children through our maternity home and our outreach programs. This would not be possible without the prayers and financial support of many individuals.
I have been reviewing the data for 2018 and want to report to you some of the statistics. You need to remember that these are not just numbers, but each one represents a precious life that we have been privileged to serve.
In 2018, we served 22 clients, 9 infants, and 4 toddlers in our maternity home program and 55 mothers, 43 infants, and 7 fathers in our outreach program. In addition, and maybe most important of all, we saw 3 professions of faith.
We are blessed with a great staff and we are blessed with generous and gracious people like you who have joined hands with us in providing hope and restoration in the lives of young parents and their children.
Thank you for making a difference!
Sanctity of Life (posted 01/17/2019)
National Sanctity of Human Life Day is an observance declared by several United States Presidents typically proclaimed on or near the anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade. The day this year is Tuesday, January 22. Many churches will observe Sunday, January 20, as Sanctity of Life Sunday. Of course, every day should be a sanctity of life day.
Life is a precious gift from our God. He knew us before we were even born. He created us to be His child and he formed us to do great things.
As humans, we reflect the image of God (Genesis 1:27).
The punishment of death was applied to those who take another's life because God values human life (Genesis 9:6)
God gives life before birth and cares for the unborn (Psalm 139:13-16)
God has a purpose and calling for individuals even before we are born (Jeremiah 1:5 and Luke 1:15)
Yes, God gave us life and has a plan and purpose for every life. But not everyone has the same respect and dignity for life that God desires. We live in a broken and fallen world, and too often we let that world dictate our actions and infringe on our moral code as to what is right and what is wrong. Rather than using God's Word as our auhority, we have instead allowed others to force their sense of morality and their interpretation of fairness on society.
You might be interested to know that last year in our programs of The LIGHT House and MBCH Children and Family Ministries we were privileged to serve 194 mothers and 118 babies in our pregnancy services programs across the state. Thank you for joining hands with us in making a difference in the lives of each one of these precious children of God.
