- In Earn Trust First…Then Defend the Unborn, Steve Wagner describes how in the course of normal conversation at Costco, a young professional asked him to tell her all about his pro-life position.
- In A Transient, a Teenager, and a Cup of Tea, Joanna Wagner describes how a simple act of kindness to a beggar ended up changing a teenage girl’s mind on abortion.
- In Beefy’s on the Green, JFA trainers describe how a passion for the lost turned a conversation about theology at a San Antonio restaurant into a conversation about God and abortion with others on the restaurant patio.
- In Repeat Work in Science Class, nursing student (and JFA Intern Alumnus) Laura Beeson shows us how she was able to not only bring up abortion with a classmate in Anatomy and then wisely and naturally share abortion images. The result was amazing.
