FROM THE WFA/WFC BOARD OF DIRECTORS: Yesterday Julaine returned from 2-1/2 days at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. During that time she had a baseline MRI, met with a surgical oncologist, a radiation oncologist and a medical oncologist, who is her primary doctor at Mayo. When she left Mayo, Julaine had a plan in place to address the invasive basal cell carcinoma in her left shoulder. All doctors were very encouraging.
While this situation is very rare, it is curable. She will begin within the next week a round of a targeted oral chemo that has had very good success with eradicating the type of cancer she is dealing with. That treatment will last at least 6 months, with monthly check-ups at Mayo and periodic MRIs.
As members of the board of directors of WFA/WFC, we want to thank you for your prayers for Julaine as she sought this second opinion. As the Lord brings Julaine to your mind over the next several months, please pray that the treatment would be 100% effective and that side effects would be minimal and manageable.
Trilla Newbell, writing for Desiring God, gets Mother’s Day month off to a great start with a post entitled, “The Amazing Call of Being ‘Mom’.” She asserts being called “mom” is a high and holy calling and is nothing any mother should be ashamed of or seek to hide. Using Timothy’s relationship with his mother Lois and grandmother Eunice as an example, Newbell says when moms wholeheartedly embrace their role of training up their children in the ways of the Lord they are doing very important work in passing on the legacy of faith.
Julaine Appling, WFA president, further notes, “Scripture makes it clear fathers are the spiritual leaders in a home. But moms also have a critical role, since many times moms have more time with the children, especially in the early years. Teaching little ones about Jesus and His great love for them, reading Bible stories, praying at meals and singing songs about God go a long way in passing on that legacy of faith.”
As part of celebrating mothers at Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council this month, we’ve created a special opportunity for you to donate in your mother’s honor. When you do so we will send your mom a postcard letting her know how grateful you are for all she has done. You can CELEBRATE YOUR MOM HERE.
Wisconsin Family Action and Wisconsin Family Council board and staff wish all mothers a truly blessed Mother’s Day and thank you for all you do for your families!
In his first address to a joint session of Congress, President Biden last Wednesday laid out his vision for America. One of his significant proposals is the expansion of public education to include three-year-olds. This would not be daycare; it would be formal, tax-payer-funded schooling under the auspices of public school districts in the same way that four-year-old and five-year-old kindergarten programs are currently structured and delivered.
Julaine Appling strongly encourages parents to be on the alert for similar proposals at their local schools: “Biden is proposing a fundamental reshaping of the family, with public schools taking over the upbringing of our children. Three-year-olds don’t need structured learning. They don’t need the seeds of an ungodly worldview planted at this tender age. They need as much time at home with their parents and family as they can get. Christian parents should be on the lookout for such proposals in their local schools.”
The Christian Post recently reported astounding victories in the pro-life movement: “A new report from a pro-choice research organization found that in the first four months of 2021, more than 500 pro-life bills have been introduced at the state level and more than 60 have been enacted nationwide.”
In response to this report from the Guttmacher Institute, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life lobbyist group, applauded the work being done at the state level: “The unprecedented surge of pro-life activity in state legislatures this year proves life is winning in America….Across the nation, state lawmakers acting on the will of the people are taking bold steps to humanize our laws and challenge the radical status quo imposed by Roe v. Wade.”
Julaine Appling celebrated this news and points out that the Wisconsin legislature is also proposing pro-life legislation, “While it’s true that in Wisconsin right now we aren’t enacting pro-life legislation, it’s not because the legislature isn’t trying. They are considering some very good pro-life bills, several of which the governor vetoed last session; but the legislators are again going to give him the opportunity to do the right thing and respect the dignity of pre-born humans.”
If fighting for the life of pre-born humans in the state of Wisconsin is important to you, you can financially support Wisconsin’s life-saving women-helping Pregnancy Resource Centers by purchasing a Choose Life Wisconsin license plate HERE.
