(Serving Pregnancy Care Centers Nationwide)
"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live." (Deuteronomy 30:19)
| Hello. My name is Julie Johnson.
Some years ago God impressed upon me the importance of having a personal mission statement. Based on Deuteronomy 30:19 (above), mine is, as follows:
To communicate the Biblical principle that
God gives man the right to choose and
the responsibility to choose rightly.
Since that time, I have participated in activities
that line up with my mission statement. Whether I am working with pregnancy centers or
speaking and writing about pro-life issues,
my desire is to affirm the choice of LIFE.
| From 1994-2003 I worked at the Pregnancy Resource Centers of Portland, Oregon. Much of that time I was Director of Services, overseeing the work of six centers, the abstinence department, and the post-abortion recovery ministry. I also oversaw the conversion of our centers from non-medical to medical entities offering limited first-trimester ultrasounds. I learned so much in Portland!
In 2003 I felt the Lord calling me out of Portland PRC and set up PCC Consulting, a small consulting business to help smaller centers strive for excellence in their ministries. Shortly thereafter, Care Net contacted me with an offer to become their Medical Services Consultant. In that role, I was able to help some of their 1000 centers make the conversion to medical, including limited ultrasounds, STD testing, and full/partial prenatal care. In addition, I had the great pleasure of working with leaders in the pregnancy center world as Project Manager for the medical manual, Medical Perspectives. I learned so much at Care Net!
Now I feel the Lord calling me to full-time writing. In accordance with my mission statement I'll focus on life issues, using much of what I learned "in the trenches" to reach hearts. Today's audiences love a good story, and likeable fictional characters can often speak more effectively to the general audience than you or I can.
However, PCC Consulting will continue to be there for center directors/nurses/board members, who want to brainstorm or ask questions. I have files and files of information and continue to keep abreast of what you're doing. In addition, I'll be including on this website items of information, always at no charge, just to bless you monthly. See the ContactUs page.
By the way, I urge you to go to the SOHLeducation page on this website where you'll find information on how to receive free sanctity of human life materials aimed at grade school children (K-6). Many pregnancy centers have added these materials to their abstinence presentation offerings and are now reaching an expanded audience in an attempt to slow the flow toward the culture of death.
So think of me slaving away at my desk trying to put into words what you all do every day, trying to impact people the way you do . . . every day. I'll be thinking of you, and praying for God's grace to continue to pour from your lips and for His face to continue to shine on your centers.
