Laurie Miller

Post Abortion Recovery Coordinator

Hello!  After serving Christ for 11 years at Lifeline as a Client Advocate, I felt lead to except the this position in Post Abortion Care. The Lord directed my heart and dedication to help women and families find peace and forgiveness through Christ Jesus; to receive his abundant grace and love after abortion.  Healing enables them to live freely for the joyful plans Christ has for each of us.  Many women live with shame, guilt, regret and/or anger.   It was only by the encouragement from Lifeline staff that I was encouraged to move forward in obedience to be set free from my own experiences.  My previous choices had led me to secrecy, unworthiness and self-condemnation.  I have now been freed to live for Christ Jesus and his divine plan for me.

 

 

Tracy Burnett

Bookkeeper

Before I became a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom of two wonderful children I worked at some banks and for an accountant. I learned that I thoroughly enjoy the detail-oriented art of bookkeeping. Now that my children are older, I've been able to take on some part time work and was given the opportunity to use my gifts at Lifeline. I've worked for various companies over the years, but this is the first time for a place that has such a positive and life-saving impact in the community. I love being able to support the work at Lifeline! When I have a few free moments, I enjoy crocheting and watching cooking shows with my hard-working husband

Kelli and Monty Sears

Lifeline Community Liaisons

No Regrets (Kelli) and Fatherhood (Monty) Representatives

We were married on Valentine's Day in 1982 and have two grown, married children, Lucas & Bethanie Wheeler and Ryan Sears. We also have four grands...Jaida, Jaxon, Brighton, and Jazlyn who bring us joy every day. We have been in full-time ministry for over 32 years pastoring only 3 churches during our tenure. After 15 years as Senior Pastors, we passed the baton of leadership at Christian Faith Center in June 2021...a dynamic 7 campus church in Nampa, Idaho.  This has allowed us to take our wealth of experience and knowledge to other churches and organizations around the nation to energize and inspire them towards unprecedented growth and health. We have founded Dream Builder Ministries to pursue this endeavor. For more information you can visit our website at www.dbmin.org. Monty was almost aborted in 1959 and that knowledge has shaped his life and the life of our family. We have devoted ourselves to the pro-life cause and count it a privilege to have the opportunity be a part of the Lifeline staff.

Kim Echelmeier

Sonographer, RMDS

I've been an ultrasonographer of over 20 years and I started working at lifeline 9 years ago! It is such a rewarding team to be a part of. We have the opportunity to speak truth out of love and lead these girls to Christ. What a privilege it is to work for God. I have 3 children. Emma 18, Drew 15 and Luke 10. My husband Steve is a pastor for the 7 th Day Adventist Church. Lifeline is an important ministry in our community and I’m proud to be apart of it!  I’m excited to see what God has in store for us next.

Sharon Bartlow

Nurse Manager, RN

Upon completion of my RN degree I entered the Air Force, working in multiple disciplines including flight nursing and clinic work, but I most enjoyed the areas of pediatrics and labor and delivery. After 13 years of military related nursing I decided it was time to devote full-time effort upon the precious lives of our own children. As time allowed I worked a direct sales career, was a substitute teacher, including French and enjoyed some travel opportunities and multiple Bible studies. Our children are now grown and I am now grandma of two precious little ones. A few years ago I began volunteering with Lifeline.   After some time I was approached to join the LLPC staff as a nurse manager and I perceived God‘s leading to get my nursing license reinstated.  It was a lengthy and difficult process, but, with God all things are possible. Continuing to trust the Holy Spirit to empower and influence, whether in client discussions, during ultrasound appointments or other client encounters I look forward to serving the Lord in this role.

Robin Watters

Executive Director, RN

Hello! I am honored to be the Executive Director at Lifeline. I wish I could sit down with you and tell you all the many stories that are in my heart from the last 20 plus years of volunteering and working at this yellow house on 12th Avenue.
There is much work to be done and we are SO blessed to live in such a generous and loving community. We have weekly phone calls from women requesting abortion services. Often, they will come in for a free ultrasound and make a life changing decision. Often, we are able to share Christ, and someone will come to know Jesus. Your prayers, volunteer work and donations make a DIFFERENCE. If we all give some, we can see BIG change.
The NESTING PLACE Maternity Home is our most recent ministry project. This home will make deep and lasting changes in the lives of babies, mothers, fathers and their immediate families. Join in this quiet and yet SO urgent cause. You won't regret it!
