Hi I’m Timmerie,
Thank you for taking interest in my blog and for the extra effort to get to know a little more about me.
I have grown up pro-life and have been working in the movement since before I was in grade school. My first pro-life experiences, at the very young age of two, were when my parents helped to open and then physically run a local maternity home named Veronica’s Home. We literally closed up our own home, and went to live in Veronica’s Home until we found the necessary staff to run Veronica’s Home on a full time basis. Next I began helping out with local projects in my diocese. I started with simple projects such as coordinating the annual Mother’s Day Rose Sale, which provides funding for local crisis pregnancy centers to eventually lobbying on both state and national level for issues such as Safe Surrender and Parental Notification.
It has also been my honor to work on the front lines of the pro-life movement through side walk counseling at local abortion clinics. Whether working at a local clinic where I have seen many lives saved as abortion minded women choose life for their unborn children, or working to ensure that women have access to programs such as safe surrender, I have been incredibly blessed to work in ministries that save human lives one at a time and by the thousands. You might be saying to yourself, “that is great, but I can’t picture myself praying or counseling in front of a clinic”, or “I can not imagine speaking in front of a Senator or Congressman.” The truth is I am not special, I have just said, “Yes”, and each and every one of us have opportunities to say yes. YOU CAN DO IT!
In high school and starting up college I worked as a Pro-Life Activist, Director of Communications for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, Coordinator of Social Media for Angels in Waiting, and Coordinator of Social Media for Culture of Life Family Services (COLFS).
2010-2012 I acted as Coordinator of 40 Days for Life in Miramar, California, and I coordinated the First Annual Walk For Life Youth Rally immediately following West Coast Walk for Life in San Francisco.
After much discernment I decided that in order to be the best possible Advocate for Life that I can be, it is time for me to focus the majority of my time on my college education and completed my Bachelors at John Paul the Great Catholic University. Currently I am working on my Masters in Biblical Theology and work at the Director of Community Outreach at Life Choices pregnancy counseling center.
I encourage you to continue on this journey of Life with me, and I encourage you to continue to find ways to advocate for the dignity of yourself and others in this challenging culture.
Did I mention that in my spare time (haha) I love to dance! I have been dancing since I was two years old and have trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, swing, and other forms of dance. I am continuing in my pursuit of dance, and hope to be dancing professionally within the next year. If you are ever interested I will let you know where I will be performing 😉
I appreciate you following me, and I promise to try to keep my content fresh, bringing controversial and hot topics that youth face today. Ultimately I hope that in your walk with me, you will see the image and likeness of God in every person that you meet, and that as a result you will treat everyone with dignity and respect. This is certainly my goal for myself, and although I may fall short, I look to my family, friends, and all of you to hold me accountable.
Blessings to you all,
