Hopeful Words on Multiple Sclerosis, Abortion, and More

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 30, Mark Davis Pickup’s life took a radical turn. Not only did his daily lifestyle have to be reframed, but so did the placement of his identity:

“The whole self-image issue comes up . . . and this isn’t just for people with disabilities, it’s for everybody . . . I had to redefine myself, from being healthy and able bodied, with an upwardly mobile career, to a new human being that was now in a wheelchair. Who is that new human being? I had to redefine ‘Self’.” —Mark Davis Pickup.

This life-readjustment for Mark led to his occupation of advocacy for human life, and placing our identity, our value, and our entirety of hope in Christ alone.

If you are facing a redefining of your “Self”, a situation involving abortion, Multiple Sclerosis, or other trials involving a life-readjustment, we hope that Colleen’s truthful and enlightening conversation with Mark is an encouragement to you today.
