“For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well.” —Psalm 139:13-14
Julie Dowler, Executive Director of CAPS Pregnancy Clinics in San Diego, CA, shares from her heart how important it is to love those facing unplanned pregnancy well and earn the right to share the Gospel.
Corinthians 13:1 "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal."

Share your thoughts, insights and questions in the comments section below. Below are some discussion questions to get the conversation started:
- Previously we’ve thought through the troubles and pressures women might be facing with an unplanned pregnancy. In today’s video, Julie talks about using those as our bridge to connecting with women and sharing God’s grace. Making sure we don’t approach with judgment or additional stress. Do you think the approach you’ve been crafting through this study accomplishes this goal? If not, in what ways could you tweak you message to offer more encouragement?
- Julie brings up the concept of living the Gospel before sharing it. How can you carry that approach in your own ministry efforts?
