  • Rev. Jonathan Lange, Pastor, Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Evanston, Wyoming, and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Kemmerer, Wyoming – “Confessing Life with Boldness and Joy” – It is one thing to accept what God says. It is another thing to confess it with boldness and joy. Satan leaves us perplexed and speechless by taking our eyes off of God. His lies are only defeated in the Name of the Triune God. A renewed focus on the Holy Trinity returns us to a bold and joyful confession of the Lord and Giver of Life.

  • Marlene, John, and Hannah Strege, a family from southern California who successfully completed the first adopted frozen-embryo birth – “A Snowflake Named Hannah: One Couple’s Faith and the First Adoption of a Frozen Embryo” – John and Marlene Strege had the first snowflake baby through adopting a frozen embryo that became their daughter, Hannah. Marlene will share their story along with her husband, John, telling about their recently released book. Hannah will be there as well to answer questions about her life as this historic child.

  • Patti Smith, LFL Life Team Leader from Huntington Beach, California – “Psalm 8:4 – Who am I that You are Mindful of Me? – Finding My True Identity in Christ” – Patti shares her journey of finding her heritage, her biological family, and searching to complete the puzzle of her life.  Her quest complete, she finds that she was “home” all along.  

  • Valerie Hill, CEO, RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics – “Advancing a Culture of Life with Care, Compassion, and Honesty” – Learn how RealOptions Obria Medical Clinics have been able to expand their reach, life-affirming services, and positive outcomes (of parents served and lives saved) in the pro-abortion Bay Area over the past 12 years. 

  • Rev. Michael W. Salemink, Executive Director of Lutherans For Life – “A Sixty-Seven-Cent Check Saved My Life” – In 1974, a sixteen-year-old Iowa farm girl’s surprise pregnancy threatened to ruin lives. Roe v. Wade made abortion available just one year earlier for situations like this, but Planned Parenthood was no match for Zion Lutheran Church. The courage and compassion of plain saints patiently serving according to their various vocations cultivated a forty-five-year marriage, three children, twelve grandkids, two pastors, a soldier, and a whole lot of Gospel-motivated Lutheranism. Listen and learn how God’s using you to do the same!
