“Held in the Arms of Hope”, the theme for the 9th annual Hope Pregnancy Resource Center spring banquet on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at the Stoney Creek Inn and Northwoods Conference Center. This year’s event focuses on the self-sacrificing gift of adoption.
Our speaker this year is Gianna Jessen, world-renowned life affirming speaker, singer/songwriter and subject of the book, Aborted... and Lived to Tell about It. Gianna will discuss her experiences and plight as an orphan.
Executive Director of Hope Pregnancy Resource Center Janna Janke looks forward to Jessens’ visit. “Each year we try to focus on a different aspect of the difficult journey a woman faces when dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. We always feature client testimonies and stories of how unplanned pregnancy has touched the life of our clients. This year, we chose to feature Gianna Jessen as our key note speaker to hear a very different perspective than we’ve heard before. Gianna’s life has been one of blessing and triumph even with the physical difficulties she faces,” she said. Janke looks forward to a time of reflection and inspiration of all that Hope Pregnancy Resource Center has offered and will continue to offer to this community.
Survivor of an abortion, Jessen, will discuss her life experiences growing up in foster care and her challenging disability, cerebral palsy. Frequent guest speaker on syndicated and cable news shows such as, Hannity and Combs, the topic of debate on television talk shows, like the View and CNBC, and speaking at venues across the globe, such as Great Britain and Australia, Gianna Jessen is a vocal advocate for the unborn. Jessen boldly travels around the world spreading her life affirming message and sharing her life story.
