Volunteer Spotlight-Created for a Purpose!
-Patsy Beidler, Davenport
I started volunteering at Pregnancy Resources in 2010. My family is pro-life. I am thankful that at my 2lb 13oz start, God put everything into place so that my life could glorify Him. At a young age, I was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. As a result, life has not always been easy, but God always provided.
I have lived in Maquoketa all my life and graduated from college at Scott Community with a degree in communication. I enjoy learning, doing new things, and meeting new people. Because of Pregnancy Resources, I am a better person for the training and the love that has been shown and felt. God puts people in our path, for sure. We are created for a reason and are a piece of His puzzle – a part of His plan. One recent encounter that blessed me was a woman I chatted with at the gas station I go to in Davenport. She was just promoted to manager. We began talking and I shared that I volunteer at Pregnancy Resources – she talked about how the ministry helped her and how they mentored her for a whole year. Her son is now five years old. She has been blessed by her experience here, and has now been able to give to others, too. Awesome! God has the big perspective. We need to be in tune with Him, as He uses us just where we are!
