Have you ever thought about when the right time is to start teaching your kids about life issues? The time is now. When they’re newborns. When they’re infants, toddlers, and sassy 6 year olds. It’s never too early (or too late) to teach little ones about the value God places on human life. It just takes some open eyes, some creativity, and some intentionality…and the home is the place to start! Join Adriane Heins and Steph Neugebauer as they talk about cultivating a pro-life culture in the home, beginning even when children are itty bitty babies. You’ll hear simple ideas and practical tips to incorporate into your own family life and rhythms. Learn about LCMS Life Ministry at lcms.org/life.

We believe that God is the author and sustainer of all life. We also know it can be hard to speak about the intrinsic value of that life when it feels like the world is trying to drown us out.
We’re right here beside you. In this podcast of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Life Ministry, we’re coming alongside one another as a community of Christ’s redeemed people, ones who are speaking up for and living out the sanctity of human life. Together we’ll explore life issues in a way that honors our heavenly Father’s value of human life, serves our neighbor, and connects us to others who are doing the same. Join us, so that together we can be friends for life.
