alyssaclarisse My handsome, wild, full of life almost three year old son acts his age. He looks like a toddler, developmentally perfect in every way for this stage of his life. He is learning to assert himself, to talk, to use the potty, to put on his own clothes, to play and use his imagination...he is your typical almost three year old. Nobody expects him to look different, be bigger, know more, or be capable of more, and he is no less human for it. He is a tiny human, his life has value, he is made in the image of God just like me and you are...nobody would argue that. Just like nobody would argue if I feel incapable of caring for him financially, emotionally, or mentally that it's acceptable for me to end his life. The fact that I'm his mother, doesn't make that my choice. Why then, when we look at a 6 week old fetus, an 8 week old fetus, a 10 week old fetus, do we place standards on it that it just can't meet yet? It looks and behaves exactly as its meant to for its stage of life. The stage of life it is in makes it no less human than my son at 3 years old, or me at 24 years old. A human life is started at conception, and the time spent inside the mothers womb is just the first phase of life. The building of a persons body is done there, but it doesn't make that tiny tiny person any less human. I don't know when we began to reason with murder, I don't know when we began to bend rules and allow justification. I don't know when our consciences became so seared that we act like ending human lives for the sake of convenience is normal and LEGAL. You may not like the harsh reality of abortion, and you're more than welcome to unfollow me because it's a cause God has put heavy on my heart. I'm hoping you'll stay though, I'm hoping you'll read and become educated, I'm praying that God will change your thinking and adopt the radical idea that ALL HUMAN LIVES MATTER. #prolife #abortion #imagodei 6h
  •   mamagarcasey As I would think you would be respectful as I'm a Christian and being pro choice 5h
  •   alyssaclarisse @mamagarcasey of course! I think people don't understand you can have a platform and raise awareness for something you feel strongly about without attacking others. 5h
  •   mamagarcasey Obviously I made my choice to have Landon and he's the best guy ever 5h
  •   jennfritsy Respect your opinion even though mine is different. & not that I don't believe you are right or wrong- I only know what I would do in a tough situation like that and choose to believe it's not my place to tell someone that they should do the same as me. 5h
  •   alyssaclarisse @jennfritsy completely respect your opinion too lady :) 5h
  •   blackjettas I am pro choice- freedom of action/choice, rape babies, mental health/genetic disorders, preventing infanticide, personal reasons, etc. Doesn't mean I'd unfollow you for having an opinion and valuing something:)!!! This is a hard debate for many people and quite the moral struggle. Standing up for what you believe is an expression of who you are<33 That is meaningful to me. 5h
  •   blackjettas ^and ps- pro choice for me doesn't mean pro action in any way. I just think humans have the right to weigh options and act in order to maintain their own wellbeing first and foremost. 5h

alyssaclarisse Really loving the #365daysoftruth plan from @shereadstruth. Enlightening, encouraging, eye opening, and truly blessed. I can't believe there was a time I didn't get into His living word every day. There isn't a day I don't discover something new, learn something amazing, or just go "WOW! My God is truly awesome!" #Godcentered #yearofwholeness #flourishinginHim #thepsalms 9h

alyssaclarisse Relationships succeed when an awareness of God and a connectivity to God are foremost in our thinking, if you miss that God is at the center you'll miss it all. Waiting actively and trusting wholeheartedly that God's timing is perfect and He has the most spectacular plan in store for my life. #Godcentered #kingdomhearted #kingdomcouple #waitingonHim #pursuingChrist #adventuremerging 13h

alyssaclarisse I am so grateful to be in such a great place in my life, and to have the pleasure of calling these four outstanding women my friends. As different as these gals are from one another, they're my people. I know I can call any one of them and they will be there for me. I know I can vent and confess and they'll never judge. We share coffee, meals, and long talks. I value each of these ladies so much in a world where finding loyal and reliable friends is a rare thing. I know we're in each other's lives for a reason, and I love y'all so much. Thanks for being my people, thanks for doing life with me. #womancrushwednesday #WCW #galpals #mypeople 17h

alyssaclarisse When I was younger my mother protested at abortion clinics. She took time to talk to, educate, and pray with young expecting mothers. I can proudly call my mother a hero, a hero who saved lives, and I'm thankful I was raised under the truth that a fetus is just an unborn baby, a life. I mentioned recently that God has been silent in my life and my prayers for direction. About a week ago I surrendered and told God, "my life is not my own, what would you have me do? Give me a kingdom purpose." This morning I listened to Matt Chandler's most recent sermon, and it was on prayer in regards to the sanctity of human life. It was on the horrific tragedy of abortion, and how so many of our consciences had been seared into indifference. As I listened to the sermon, I cried and cried. Towards the end, pastor Chandler talked about what being the church means to pregnant girls who are considering abortion, that it is about so much more than believing it's wrong, but providing resources, help, and love to encourage these women on their journey. In that moment I heard God, I heard the familiar voice I've been aching for and I heard him say "HELP". I'm still praying for what exactly that means, but I know my calling is in taking a stand against abortion. I can't deny the pain in my heart when I think about innocent lives being killed out of convenience. I can't deny the truth and gravity of murder. What I can do is spread the message of the gospel, of a grace so powerful it covers EVERY sin, of a love so fierce it eases every pain. So here's to a new journey, I'm ready to fight for this, I'm ready to bleed for a good reason, I'm ready to stand up for what's right. #sanctityofhumanlife #prolife #abortion #grace #love 1d
  •   reannakins03 Amen!! I'm #prolife as well. There are other options besides abortion. 1d
  •   alyssaclarisse @reannakins03 there are! I strongly believe too many Christians just judge and say "that's wrong", but we need to stop that and be love and support. I think that's really where my mission is geared, to extend grace and let girls know they're not alone. Connect them with programs or people in a local church who want to help, who want to do Gods work in the right way instead of judging and acting better than everyone. 1d
  •   reannakins03 I agree with you, many Christians due judge without offering support or love for the girls. Nobody is perfect and nobody is better than anybody else. God loves each and every one of us equally. Pregnant girls and their families need to understand that abortion isn't always the best choice or the only choice. In most cases, they choose to have sex and risk getting pregnant. @alyssaclarisse 1d
  •   tinytexastribe I'm also pro-life. 1d
  •   imawesomeaustin Agh! So freaking good!! 1d
  •   threepio.jpg Honestly, it's situational. Carrying a child to term to give it to someone else is just not an option for a highly mentally unstable person. I love you, and I'm against abortion after a certain point, but going through with it is not an option for everyone. Especially those with mental or physical health issues that make it impossible to carry to term. :/ 11h
  •   alyssaclarisse @threepio.jpg after what point though? Considering that by 8 weeks a fetus has a fully functioning central nervous system and recoils from pain...at what point does it start being a life? And who gets the power to make that call? The reality of abortion is the majority of them are purely out of convenience. There's no grand health risk posed to the mother, and it's not due to a horrific rape. It's purely "I don't want to do this, I can't afford this, this wasn't my plan" and it's not fair to the completely separate life they are now growing. I am not judging anyone, and as I said grace covers it all, but I will actively work to intercept the murder of innocent babies. The sanctity of life means too much to me to stay indifferent or to keep justifying. 10h
  •   threepio.jpg I understand that, and I'm not justifying it in certain situations, but those where the woman was raped, told she won't live through childbirth, or is too mentally unstable to go through with it, it's an exception. It takes a toll on your mind to deal with everything pregnancy entails, and while I admire the women who can pull through, some simply aren't strong enough. It's a wonderful miracle for some, but can be wildly traumatic for others. I'm not trying to argue with you babe, and obviously know due to experience you aren't saying "everyone who gets an abortion is terrible!!!!" just pointing out that it's very important for some women to have that option available. 10h

alyssaclarisse I will always love Him with all my heart, soul, strength, and mind. My identity is found in Him alone, and His is the only approval I need. The world's opinion of the way I live my life means nothing if I'm living according to His word. He is a caring father with a fierce and relentless love, and I am so blessed to get to call Him my close friend. He makes me brave, He encourages me, He assures me, He calms my mind and fills my heart. He knows my name as well as the names of all the stars in the sky. His glory is the glory I will carry, His name is the name I will speak out into the world. He came to bring the dead to life, He came to love, He came to save. My life has been redeemed from drastic situations and radically changed. I will stand up, speak out, proclaim, and love fully. When my life reflects His light, the world will know the truth. #yearofwholeness #glorycarrier #kingdomhearted #flourishinginHim #Godcentered #surrendereverything 2d

alyssaclarisse This season of my life coming into 2015 has been calm and quiet. I feel God, but he has been silent in my prayers over the direction of my life and silent in guidance. I heard His voice when praying over the life of a friend, but that has been it so far. I'm not anxious, I'm not worried, it's hard to explain. Lately I've been questioning my stance on certain things, doubting some of my convictions, wondering what was important and just how important. I felt myself falling to compromise due to all the things I've stacked against myself when it comes to friendships and relationships. A dear friend told me this morning to keep on stacking. The right people will meet me in my place in life, admire the glory-filled things I've built around myself, and continue to pursue Christ alongside me. I opened my bible tonight and immediately felt God. Even if He was being silent, He had provided me with words of guidance courtesy of Colossians 1:23. I know the truth of the gospel, and I plan on keeping my faith stable and steadfast according to His truth. Compromise is not an option, settling is not an option, bending and twisting to suit the world is not an option. I am set apart and I will stand up and speak out for Him and His glory. #Godcentered #kingdomhearted #flourishinginHim #yearofwholeness #colossians #scripture #glorycarrier 3d

alyssaclarisse I saw God's power in a very fierce and focused way today in a woman I am proud to call my friend. I saw God calling, I saw war waged, I saw a battle, I saw surrender, and I saw redemption. I felt every moment with her even though we were nowhere physically near each other. I felt her pain, her panic, her hopelessness. And then I felt God, I felt Him walking into her heart and her life. I felt Him holding her, I felt Him comforting her. I heard promises and love spoken over her life. I cried and I cried because He is just SO good, and we are so blessed. I saw a woman forever changed, I saw the dead raised to life and it humbled me even more before my amazing amazing God. #wouldntthatbelikeGod #overwhelmed #awesomeawesome 6d

alyssaclarisse Y'ALL. I cooked a real adult mom level dish tonight, lemon and thyme chicken, and it came out PERFECT and I am so pleased. Also can we talk about the fact that @imanigivertz took a photo of it that makes it look Pinterest worthy?! She's such a gem, and I'm so blessed to know her (for more reasons than her photography skills, duh). #holymolyIcookedrealfood #itwaspretty #anditwasdelcious #someonewifemeup 6d
