THE MONTH WE CELEBRATE THE LIFE GOD HAS GIVEN US!
THE MONTH WE CELEBRATE THE LIFE GOD HAS GIVEN US!
As Christians, we celebrate daily the fact that Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God our Heavenly Father, died for our sins and resurrected from the dead to give us eternal life through Him & Him alone. However, in the month of January, we also recognize and thank the Lord for the gift He gives each and every one of us on this earth: LIFE! We have wonderful programs coming to you throughout the entire month about the sanctity of life, so join us on the Mars Hill Network for some great programming, because we are all fearfully & wonderfully made by our Creator.
Check out our One North Sanctity of Life videos:
BEING BORN (AGAIN)
In today’s culture, abortion has been heavily promoted & the right to life has been forsaken by many. However, there are many who stand up for the sanctity of life and champion the fact that the Lord has done a miraculous thing in giving us life.
In this documentary, we tell a story of a young woman who’s decided to not abort multiple children & how the Lord is helping her raise her most recently born child all while covering the topics that make abortion wrong & sinful. We also show how God gives us the ability to be born & to be born again.
Our scriptural inspiration for this project:
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” – John 3:3
From Guilt To Grace – Pt. 1
From Guilt To Grace – Pt. 2
From Guilt To Grace – Pt. 3
From Guilt To Grace is a three-part special focuses on the issue of abortion, but primarily on how God can bring someone out of their feeling of guilt and shower them with His grace. In this special, you will hear two different pro-life stories:
1) A former Planned Parenthood worker who now works full time at 40 Days for Life National.
2) Two parents who were reunited with their biological son after almost 40 years.
Although both stories are different, each one in its own way shows how those involved went from a feeling of guilt to one of grace in the midst of their situation.

EXPOSING ABORTION & ITS LIES W/TERRY BEATLEY
In this episode, Sonya sits down with Terry Beatley, founder & president of Hosea Initiative, as they take a deep dive into the history of the abortion industry in the United States of America. In their discussion, Terry shares with us what Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the father of the abortion industry, commissioned her to do before his passing, and how that has led her (through Hosea Initiative) to unearth & present the history that many Americans don’t know about the abortion industry & its genesis.

FAITH FEATURE 80
DAVID LONG, CEO OF TEN GOOD MEN
In this Faith Feature, Teddy sat down with David Long, a long-time friend of Wayne (our general manager). He’s also the CEO of Ten Good Men, a pro-life ministry based in Del Rio, Tennessee. In this interview, David tells us about his history in pro-life ministry, what inspired him to start Ten Good Men and where our nation stands in God’s eyes with abortion running rampant in our country and around the world since 1970. He gives us good insight into the spiritual ramifications for those who engage in abortion & for those who don’t speak up about the wickedness of it when given ample opportunity.
RADIO SPECIALS DURING SANCTITY OF LIFE MONTH:
For many Americans, the argument for abortion often lands on the topic of rape—shouldn’t abortion be allowed in such difficult situations?
In this year’s all-new special programming created in conjunction with Sanctity of Life Sunday (and the annual March for Life in Washington DC), host Brad Mattes answers the concern with a powerful reminder of the value of every human life.
Joining Brad, President of Life Issues Institute, are two guests who speak eloquently out of personal experience:
When Mark’s mother was just 14 years old she was raped at a July 4th party. His mother bravely kept the child, choosing to give him up for adoption into a loving Christian home. Years later, Mark is a strong defendant of life, speaking publicly at a DC rally and delivering a message so impactful it went viral with millions of people sharing his story. “The circumstances of my conception do not determine my worth as a human being.”
When Ayala was a child, she was repeatedly sexually abused for years. When she was 15 years old, she became pregnant through rape. Amazingly, despite the tragedy in conception, Ayala actually felt love for the child and fought to keep it. Sadly, she miscarried and lost her daughter. Now Ayala is a powerful advocate for life with a significant presence on social media where she vigorously defends the truth that every life is sacred.
