Today’s featured contributor to our auction fundraiser is Shannon Bacus with Shannon Bacus Birth Doula Services. Shannon believes in “healthy, educated, desirable birth.” Shannon has been a personal friend of mine for several years, and her philosophy on birth (and life) is admirable! Shannon provides birth doula services in the central IL area. She is a DONA certified birth doula. One of the coolest things about Shannon’s services is that there are a ministry. This means that she doesn’t have a set fee, but trusts that clients will pay her “according to (their) ability.” What a powerful message this sends! For our auction, Shannon has donated 3 sets of Scripture cards that she uses with her clients during pregnancy and labor for encouragement and peace. These cards have many more uses though! While I am not pregnant, adoption is a pregnancy of sorts and I find these cards to be perfect. Additionally, as a therapist, I can think of many of my clients who would benefit from these affirmations! If you have children, these would be perfect for Scripture memory and practice. Finally, if you are a simply human, you would enjoy the messages and the reminders of love and peace that they bring. 🙂 They are beautifully created with a variety of designs on sturdy card stock and come with a simple, but lovely yellow ribbon.
