I am an Insurance Agent/ Owner of Jessica Harrison Agency-Shelter Insurance. My husband, Joey and I are the proud parents to a middle school daughter and a young son. We spend most of our time running our kids to practices and watching them participate in the activities they love. We enjoy spending time as a family going to the movies, bowling and family vacations. Also, we love just spending time at home with our family, sweet little dog and two cats. We enjoy being part of our community and being part of American Business Association, Dyersburg Dyer County Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis, Volunteering at First Christian Church in Dyersburg and most of all serving on the board of Life Choices since 2019. 

Life Choices comes along side many individuals in our community to pray with them and help them process what they are experiencing into perspective. Most of all they let them know they are not alone, and God is always with them. Life Choices makes the commitment to be prayer partners and love on anyone who needs us. This ministry changes lives but most importantly it saves lives each and every day in clinic or in our school systems. If you live in Dyer County or the surrounding area you know someone one who has been touched by Life Choices. Investing and praying for Life Choices will change the lives of your family, your friends, neighbors and coworkers.

I am a FNP at Pediatric Associates of West TN, PLLC. I’ve been on the board of Life Choices since 2018. I love spending time with my family, singing and playing “at” the piano. 

Life Choices is a local ministry serving families in our community. 

The prevention program provides a resource for young people to grow into productive members of society. As we look to the future, we need to support positive outcomes for the youth in our community. 

The intervention program allows clients with an unexpected pregnancy to enter a clinic where surrounded by love, not shame. There is more than ultrasounds and pregnancy testing going on in the clinic setting; each client is offered keys to healthy relationships and healthy lifestyles as cornerstones of Life Choices. 

The restoration program allows women and men who’ve experienced abortion or other pregnancy loss to heal through Bible study and are also offered keys to healthy relationships and healthy lifestyles for their future relationships.

Our family had supported Life Choices for several years because we believe in the vision and mission of this ministry. Many people believe in the value of each child and parent’s life, but they don’t really know how to make a difference for those who need it. Supporting the Life Choices ministry allows each of us to use our resources to give unborn children a chance at life and their parents a glimpse of the God who loves them. 

Life Choices is bigger than most individuals can support financially all on their own, so having other people willing to contribute and support Life Choices’ ministry is vital to keeping this ministry alive. Moreover, when others support Life Choices monetarily, they are also joining in Life Choices’ work in reaching out and ministering to those in need. Similar to money, prayers are also critical to LIFE CHOIES ’s ministry. Because of the stressful nature of Life Choices’ work, both those seeking Life Choices’ services and those providing those services require prayers to make good choices, give good advice, stay strong, and stay in tune with God’s will. By staying in tune with God’s will and purpose for Life Choices’, Life Choices’ staff can trust that, even in the hard moments, God’s will is at the center of the work they are doing and the services they are providing.
