A Beautiful Miracle at the Abortion Clinic Door

Posted by | Mar 10, 2018 | No Comments

Choosing Life & Becoming an R.N.

Today Good Counsel celebrates its 33rd Anniversary. As a way of expressing our deepest gratitude to God and all of our friends, supporters and staff that have made our mission possible, here is an inspirational story about one of our moms who turned her life around.

Dolly was six months pregnant and about to enter an abortion clinic. Directly above the abortion clinic was a pro-life ministry. It was there that Dolly, “met this beautiful lady and she told me we have an organization that can help you with your baby… Good Counsel.”

Right away Dolly was welcomed into a Good Counsel home where she was met with love, support, guidance, and hope when she had nothing and no way to support herself and her baby.  Dolly stayed at Good Counsel for a year and a half to complete her plan to reach her goals and move on to a new life with her son. Watch this video to see Dolly’s inspiring story.

Please Keep Our Moms and Babies Warm and Safe

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “March roars in like a lion…” Nothing could be more true this year as many states in the Northeast were hit by the Nor’easter this past weekend. And today Winter Storm Quinn is impacting the states where most of our Good Counsel homes are located.

Thankfully, none of our homes were damaged by this weekend’s storm. However, I still need help paying our winter heating bills, and this cold weather is a good reminder for us to share this important appeal. Read More

The new year at Good Counsel began with a mini baby boom with the birth of three babies on the same day in January.  Each announcement is exciting and fills everyone with hope.  Each baby born provides inspiration to continue working hard to aid the least among us, homeless, pregnant mothers with nowhere else to turn – until they turn to Good Counsel!

Ash Wednesday Marks the Beginning of Lent 2018

Posted by | Feb 14, 2018 | No Comments

The Journey to Sacrificial Love begins today, Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

Today’s Readings: Joel 2: 12-18; 2 Corinthians 5: 20-6: 2; Matthew 6: 1-6, 16-18

The prophet Joel calls us today to start our spiritual journey with our whole heart as we begin our fast. Why do we fast and abstain from pleasure? Because we know we are sinners and in great need of God’s mercy. Every journey needs to begin with a first step and today we take a step into church to receive ashes so that we may be marked by an outward sign that signifies an inner decision to repent. Read More

Baby New Year Times Three!

Posted by | Jan 17, 2018 | No Comments

Here at Good Counsel, we always look forward to our own “Baby New Year.”  The birth of the first baby in a new year gives us pause to reflect on the good work we have done in the past year and provides inspiration to continue working hard to aid the least among us, homeless, pregnant mothers with no where else to turn – until they turn to Good Counsel!

We had to wait until January 12, 2018 for our Baby New Year.  God must have big expectations for our work in 2018 because He provided three times the inspiration – on January 12, 2018, Good Counsel was blessed with not one, not two, but three new babies!

The drama was building throughout the day and then Baby Girl Zakhia was the first to arrive at 5:05 pm.  She was 19 inches long and weighed 6 pounds, 13.5 ounces. Read More
