PrettyHappyFunnyReal--- Crafters for Life

To be Mary and Martha simultaneously---My daughters decided to extend their fun after a year of Little Flowers Catholic Girls' Club, so they got some friends to form 'Crafters for Life,' a group that meets to crochet, knit and sew baby goods to donate to the local crisis pregnancy center. They are starting small, but it is a dream for them to actively use their talents for a pro-life cause.

Making hand crafts means reading directions and tearing out a few hours of work when the pattern just isn't coming together. It can also mean tired hands and eyes- But every stitch is a prayer....The video below was an inspiration to my oldest daughter. She wants to do something similar for life, but for now, she is making crafts for babies in her own backyard.

  7. I LOVE the idea of making baby items for a pregnancy center! What a perfect and positive way to for your daughters to be involved in building a Culture of Life! Pregnancy help centers are the very backbone of the pro-life movement...and what a winning combination when "every stitch is a prayer." That brought a big smile to my face today! Love it! :D
