Can Ten Seconds Change Minds?

It all started at 1:40 AM at a stoplight on Pacific Coast Highway in Hermosa Beach, California.  My July newsletter tells what happened there and how one good thing that came of it was a sound bite that is still making an impact on how people think about abortion 13 years later.  The short letter, Ten […]

We Can’t Wait (in More Ways than One)

After twenty minutes with a JFA trainer, Amanda shared a JFA Brochure with a friend who decided not to kill her child (“Lucy” in the photo).  After one hour in a presentation with a JFA trainer last month, Emma and her sister went to talk to kids in the park.  Their mom said, They said […]


Here’s the scene at UCLA’s Bruin Walk on JFA’s second day of outreach in early June.  JFA staff and volunteers set up five tables inviting people to dialogue with us (one of them is down the walk to the left of the frame).  As you can see, one-to-one conversations were happening at every table.  JFA was invited […]

A Slice in Time

When I reviewed the photos from JFA’s recent outreach event at the University of Kansas, I was especially encouraged and struck by the photo above.  My brief May newsletter decodes the photo, discusses why it’s special, and explains JFA’s passion for…More Conversations.

“I Couldn’t Stop…”

Most of us have fears about discussing abortion.  Corrie was no different.  She recently attended a mission trip that JFA led for Christian Heritage Academy‘s Salt and Light program.  Here’s what she said about the outreach to the University of Oklahoma: I was terrified to talk to anyone, and made a goal to talk to just […]

JFA on the Radio, on the March, on the Ground, and on the Metro (Jan/Feb 2015 Update Links)

On the March for Life JFA training specialists Catherine Wurts and Rebecca Haschke participated in the March for Life JFA-style: they turned it into an opportunity to teach pro-life advocates to dialogue!  See “JFA Equips 263 at the March for Life” for more, including what happened to one student when she returned home. On the […]

“Better than Saying Nothing”

Volunteer Charity Boaz had planned “to let others do the talking.”  Seeing a young man looking at the Justice For All Exhibit alone, though, caused her to gather up her courage.  Afterwards, she wrote, I decided someone had to talk to him, and it looked like it was going to be me.  I was so […]
