Thank you for visiting Good Counsel’s 30th Anniversary Online Journal. Looking back and ahead, everything begins with: God is very merciful.

You not only receive the Lord’s mercy, but can share it every day at Good Counsel (2 Samuel 22 -26). Look and listen to the Lord up close and personal here in this Journal: Holding a newborn, seeing the smiling gratitude of a pregnant mom, seeing a happy child, hearing a mom say she’s getting her life together, and much more.  Click the Contents button above to see these stories.

As we recall that 30 years have passed, and we have more work to do together ahead, I am blessed to have you, and all those you’ll read about in this Online Journal who have been part of Good Counsel.

You are blessed to do the Lord’s work feeding, clothing, sheltering. Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy.” (Matthew 5:7)

Good Counsel’s simple work may continue only with the help of the Lord and your support.

Good Counsel has always been a family of people working together reaching pregnant and parenting women. This year Good Counsel expects not only to re-open a home on Staten Island, but also to add beds in existing homes for more mothers and babies to find love and direction.

Good Counsel’s national helpline for women in crisis pregnancy and post abortion healing are already receiving more contacts through emails and social media. We will enhance our services to respond to more of those in need, quicker and more efficiently.

Please view more about Good Counsel through this Journal and throughout our website.

If you believe the Lord is calling you to come together in prayer and this Christian mission then please come live, work and pray at a Good Counsel home as a volunteer for at least a year, in a Faith Community. Please contact me or call 201.795.0637 if you think this is what the Lord is asking you to do.

Please keep praying and together, always with God’s help, let us do something more beautiful for the Lord. The Lord is very merciful.
