Life Choices confirmed both of my pregnancies via ultrasound. Theygave me information on prenatal care, how the baby would develop, and what to expect during the different trimesters. I received comfort, support, and a feeling of understanding that I did not get at my regular doctor’s office and never felt pressure from them to make a different choice.

They have so many different resources to help a variety of women in need. They are always ready and willing to help anyone in need. They are super nice to you and don't make you feel judged.  They treated me with so much care and were just as excited during my first ultrasounds as I was.

They called me later in my pregnancy and even after birth to check on me and baby. 

I would recommend Life Choices to anyone because they really care. You aren’t just a patient when you walk through those doors--you’re family. 

Life with my kids is amazing!

I loved how my questions were answered promptly. Before, during, and after my ultrasound, the nurse was very polite and focused on my well-being and let me control everything that was going on. It was great!

When I first found out I was pr­­­­­­egnant I was scared and didn't know what to do. I was in an abusive marriage and my husband wanted me to have an abortion. I knew I had to have a doctor visit and found Life Choices. When I went to the appointment the nurse asked me if anyone was trying to get me to make a decision, I wasn't comfortable with. I told her yes but wouldn't tell her who. Throughout my pregnancy, I went to all of my doctor's appointments and ultrasounds by myself. I felt alone, but I wasn't because Life Choices was there. Fast forward a couple weeks before I was supposed to deliver, I set up a birthing class appointment with Life Choices. When I went there, I was sobbing uncontrollably. I was at the point where I had enough in my marriage and needed to talk to someone. The staff at life choices took the time to talk to me and pray for me. 

When I delivered my son, the staff came to the hospital and met with me again. I would call them after my delivery and they would pray for me over the phone, not knowing my situation. 

On April 29th, 2019 I made the decision to escape domestic violence. I called Life Choices a couple days after and they were there for me once again. No judgement, no questioning just love. That's what their mission is all about. Life choices was there for me when no one else was and I am eternally grateful.

Life choices is one of the best organizations I've ever encountered. It gives so many woman and children resources they wouldn't otherwise have. They are really the utmost helpful. They even take care of my baby love when I'm in the back, and he absolutely adores them. If you ever need anything they are very happy to help you and they never look down on your situation. To them I am very greatful.

I came to Life Choices in 2015 looking for an abortion.  I was already a mother to twin boys and had a very difficult pregnancy with them and just didn’t want to go through that again. During my visit, I received emotional support that I was not offered at my regular doctor’s office. After having a confirmation ultrasound, I did choose life for my daughter, but I never felt pressured to do so. I am so glad that I made this choice; it’s the best decision I have ever made. I would recommend Life Choices to anyone who is in a similar situation.

My daughter is so beautiful, sweet, smart, funny, sassy, giggly, and that doesn’t even begin to describe who she is. Who she has turned me into leads me to believe her purpose on Earth has to be incredible! 

No words can say how grateful I am and will always be to Life Choices

I was traveling all summer for my college internship. I had taken a pregnancy test before I left out one morning and it came back positive. I was nervous. I didn’t think I would be able to care for a child. All summer I went without going to a doctor. I was afraid, and I didn’t know what to do. I contemplated getting an abortion and no one finding out. Since I didn’t know how far along I was, I wasn’t sure how that was going to work. I spent my summer looking at baby stuff online and, in my heart, I knew I couldn’t get an abortion. I knew it was wrong and I knew that I could be a mom. Once my internship was over, I returned home, I thought about making an appointment at the women’s clinic, but I didn’t have health insurance, so I knew it was going to cost a lot and I didn’t have the money to do it. 

A lady at the office recommended that I try Life Choices. I was able to get an appointment that next week and found out I was further along than I thought. The women there were so sweet and reassured me that everything was going to be okay. I was able to keep all of my ultrasound pictures and showed my boyfriend that we really had a healthy growing baby coming into this world. I was set up to go to the health dept and get some assistance and then started my TennCare. I started seeing my OB and then gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Life choices made sure to check on me to see how I was doing after I saw them the first time.

They were with me when I laid eyes on my first baby and that will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you.

I am attending Lee University to study Business Finance, and Life Choices invested in me so that I could have this opportunity. Life Choices holds a new place in my heart after they graciously awarded a scholarship to my new college season. Not only are they helping the future generation by educating teenagers to navigate the challenges that come in high school and beyond, but they also want to invest in those student’s futures through scholarships.Those scholarships awarded to students support people like me who are going to change this world for the better!

Lee University will strengthen my abilities to become a business leader who will help industries in Dyersburg, West TN, or the world! What a blessing Life Choices is to me and so many others as they educate, motivate, and supply resources to future generations. 

There are very few places like Life Choices. I am blessed by the impact they have made in my school, town, and life. It will have a ripple effect as I hope to impact others. Life Choices is changing the world! 

Shannon Powell, Executive Director

When I had the opportunity to get involved with Life Choices I jumped on it. I have made many poor relationship choices in my past and if I could help one person make better choices then I’m in!

I prayerfully and financially supports Life Choices because we aim to meet people wherever they are in their walk toward healthy choices. Whether it’s information about an unexpected pregnancy, restoration from past hurts or even skills for prevention of those hurts for our younger students, knowing that God is using my messes to help propel His cause helps to continue to build my faith. 

I am blessed to be a part of Life Choices because I know that God is using me to speak to people’s hearts. Everyone that is a part of this organization is being used to further the Kingdom;  you don’t have to be on the frontlines or the face of an organization to make a difference. The person that cleans is equally as important as the nurse who sees a patient or the decision makers of that organization.

I am so pleased and honored to have been awarded a Life Choices Prevention scholarship. When I thought about college and how much I would have to take out in student loans I was worried about how much I would owe while attending over the next four years.  As I applied for different scholarships throughout my senior year, I applied for this one thinking to myself, “I’m probably not going to get picked but I will still apply.” On awards day when scholarships were presented, and my name was called for this particular scholarship I was so overwhelmed and very thankful that I had been chosen. 

I have put this scholarship towards my schooling at the University of Memphis. This scholarship has allowed me to complete my first year of college with no student loan debt. For that I will forever be grateful.

Gayle Martin, Former Board Member

My husband, Rob and I have supported Life Choices since its inception nearly 20 years ago. Although the staff has changed and a few of the services have changed, the mission of Life Choices remains the same- saving babies and supporting women and families during a crisis pregnancy. 

 As a former Life Choices mentor and board member, I know women receive reliable information and free ultrasounds from a caring staff. Statistics show that 60-70% of abortion-minded women who see an ultrasound of their unborn child, will choose life.

 We will continue to support Life Choices financially because we believe the life of the unborn is precious and should be protected. 


Jamie, Restoration Client

A former employee of Life Choices and I were at the same meeting. I knew of her affiliation with the organization and reached out asking for information. She was so helpful and encouraged me to attend one of the recovery classes that they offer. At that time, I didn’t feel like I had anything left to lose. The thoughts of suicide were enough to scare me into action. I knew something had to change, so I called them. I was met with nothing but love and acceptance and signed up for the six-week abortion recovery class (I didn’t even know that was a thing.)

I didn’t know what to expect but decided to give everything I had to the class. To say it was hard would be an understatement. It’s probably the hardest thing I have ever done. Amy continued to encourage me every week promising that if I would stick it out that it would get better. Every week I came back discouraged, raw, and vulnerable. She kept walking with me through the dark, heavy emotions that tried to sink me. She was invested. She cared. And she was right. By the end of the classes and through much prayer, I was able to make peace with what I had done. I was finally able to forgive myself. Without Life Choices, I don’t even like to think of what would have happened to me. I’m not saying that everything is easy. I’m not saying that sometimes I don’t have bad days. But Life Choices gave me the tools to cope and that has made all the difference.
