What others are saying:

“We were blessed to have Sheila Harper of SaveOne as our Celebrate Life Banquet speaker. Sheila engages the audience from the start with her loving personality and her willingness to share from her heart. She gave a timely message on the importance of the church and pro-life groups working together to end abortion. Her passion for Abortion Recovery for men and women is compelling and based on biblical truths. Her personal testimony inspired those in attendance to support our cause at GATE Pregnancy Resource Center. This was our best fundraising banquet to date. I highly recommend Sheila Harper of SaveOne to speak at your event.”
