Start this week's lesson with a time of prayer then read the Session Eleven "Gear Up" section in the course guide.
One of the most valuable things you can offer anyone in crisis is the ability to see options. This means that when you’re helping someone who is considering abortion, it’s important to have a working knowledge of their alternatives. This session will cover parenting options and what they might entail for those you serve. Keep in mind, however, that a flippant suggestion of marriage or the life-long journey of parenting might be the last thing someone will appreciate. The key here is to help them explore their options with empathy, empowering them to make the best decisions. Life Disciples also have the ability to walk alongside people through the long-term difficulties of each life-affirming choice.
