WATCH: How To Engage the Transgender Battle in a Way that Glorifies God
What You Need To Know About December 1
In the Media
For decades adults’ perceived happiness has trumped what is in the best interest of children — growing up with a married mother and father (especially their biological married mother and father). We see this in no-fault divorce laws, the increasing number of step-families and more recently adoption by same-sex couples, which intentionally deprives a child of either a mother or a father. All of these perceived “advancements” are for the benefit of adults and their happiness.
But now there is an organization that is making this issue its sole focus. Them Before Us founder Katy Faust with Stacy Manning have not only started a movement and developed a significant online presence, but they have also done incredible research supporting the social science findings that what is best for children is exactly what God planned: growing up with a married (biological) mom and dad, rather than having parents dedicated to achieving their own happiness.
In honor of November being National Adoption Month, Julaine Appling points out that according to Faust and Manning, adults are putting the needs of children before their own when they adopt, “In adoption, adults are looking to mend the loss of a child’s biological parents. Adults are, in adoption, doing what they should always do, doing the hard thing to make life better for a child. Simply put, adoption is for children, not adults.”
November 30 is Giving Tuesday, a day set aside for generosity and financially investing in causes you believe in. For many, this could raise the question, “what is the difference between a charity and a non-profit?”
A nonprofit is an organization that invests its income into advancing the organization’s main goal that supports their mission.
A charity is a type of nonprofit that pours their income and time into activities aimed at improving lives in communities; this often includes giving items or money away.
Wisconsin Family Action is a non-profit which means any financial gifts received go directly into advancing our mission: strengthening, preserving and promoting marriage, family, life and religious freedom in The Badger State.
We would be honored if you would mark your calendars for November 30 and join the #givingtuesday movement by financially investing in the work we do!
According to a news release from Governor Ever’s office, “Students are invited to contribute handmade ornaments showcasing their hometowns, neighborhoods or local areas; the strength of neighbors and community, or what their hometowns or the Badger State mean to them,” wrote News8000.
This is a beautiful opportunity for families to take time together reflecting on what they love about where they live and creating an ornament to represent their hometown. Any ornaments you create should be mailed by November 19, 2021 — that’s just 8 days away!
The following is from the official letter sent out by Evers’ office: “[P]lease be sure to include the teacher’s name, grade, school name, and address so that we may acknowledge your contribution.”
Send your ornament to this address: Emily Gorman Wisconsin Department of Administration Division of Facilities and Transportation Services 17 West Main Street, Suite 119 Madison, WI 53703

What would you do if you knew a child was the target of destruction?
You would everything in your power to move the child out of harm’s way or intercept it all together, right?!
Today transgender ideology is sweeping our nation, and youth are the targets. In response, Family Policy Alliance, one of our frontline national partners, recently hosted the Help Not Harm Summit to answer questions about how to engage with the transgender battle in a way that glorifies God and defends the mental, physical and emotional health of children.
On Friday, October 15 medical professionals, political leaders and organizations dedicated to standing up for children’s rights shared information and practical tools on how to make a difference in your country, your state, and even your own family when it comes to transgender ideology. The good news is the replay of each session is now AVAILABLE!
Whether you watched the summit live and want to re-watch a session or are just now learning about the event and want to watch a session for the first time, you can do so HERE.
On December 1 the U.S. Supreme court will hear oral arguments concerning Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving Mississippi’s 15-week abortion-ban law. This is a significant case in the pro-life movement.
Mary Szoch, writing for Family Research Council, clearly explains the weight and potential repercussions of this case: “In Dobbs, the Supreme Court will consider Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which prohibits elective abortion after 15 weeks gestation. This law is a direct challenge to the abortion jurisprudence of Roe, which made abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy the default law of every state. If Roe is overturned, the question of abortion’s legality would likely fall to the states—meaning states would once again have the ability to defend the most vulnerable beginning at the moment of conception.”
In support of Mississippi’s 15-week pro-life law a coalition of pro-life groups, national speakers, Members of Congress, and the Mississippi Attorney General are gathering the morning of December 1 for a pro-life rally. WFA’s president Julaine Appling and Exec. Vice President Micah Pearce will be at the rally. If you plan on attending this historic event in our nation’s Capital, please let us know so Julaine and Micah can meet up with you that day.
