GRAND RAPIDS, MI -
She Leads Michigan facilitated 85 women in leadership representing 58 organizations from around Michigan with a heart for building a collaboration for “Life from the Womb to the Tomb and Beyond”, February 24th 2023 at Venue3two.com in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
We were inspired by the stories of pro life advocates, Jessica Ann Tyson, and her twin
sister Monica Sparks, born into a challenging situation with a difficult early life before
adoption into a loving Christian family.
They are now business owners and elected officials in opposite political parties, who
offer a proposal of hope and unity.
Following the “brainstorming” session and feed back of the women attending, we continue to plan working together toward developing a more comprehensive message and mission for LIFE in Michigan.
Our next gathering for prayer and strategic planning is May 5 - 6 at Maranatha Bible and Missionary Conference Center, Norton Shores, MI. Contact us for more details.
