The Caris Approach ®

Looking at God’s Design

God could have created life any way he wanted, but His design is pregnancy. There is really nothing else like it where the welfare of two people are intertwined, so that it’s impossible to help one while bypassing the other.

Transcending the Political Debate in Search of God’s Heart

As we look at the current political debate, we see one side focused mostly on the woman, the other mostly on the child, while God loves and values both the woman and the child equally. We found that meeting women where they are and providing for their needs, emotionally, physically and spiritually is the best way to care for the woman and the child. That’s why our focus is to tangibly demonstrate God’s love to women during and after an unplanned pregnancy.

Engaging in a Grace Response

We know from research1 that women facing an unplanned pregnancy often feel shame, judgment and fear that their life is over. Without a trusted support system to turn to, a woman often feels that her only choices are abortion or overwhelming struggle as a single mom. As Christians we believe we are all equally in need of God’s grace so we don’t participate in any approach to unplanned pregnancy or abortion that involves shame. Instead, we extend God’s grace to each woman, and equip other Christians to do the same. [1] Executive Summary: CARIS Women’s Emotional Inquiry Project. Oct 21, 2011. Brandtrust, Inc.
