“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19.
The mission of our efforts through design is to use the talent God has freely poured out into jewelry pieces that inspire and create funds to pour into ministries we support. We are honored to partner with Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center through profits from our Heritage Arrow design. When you purchase Heritage Arrows to celebrate your children and family you are helping fund a new mother with the support she needs.

We are the Heart of Texas Pregnancy Resource Center (HTPRC), now serving women facing unplanned pregnancies at two locations: east Austin’s at-risk community and the growing Austin suburban community around Dripping Springs. Our mission is to save lives in the name of Jesus Christ. We have positive solutions concerning unexpected pregnancies and share God’s grace with those in need.

We educate on parenthood and abstinence/sexuality, and we offer compassionate care to each of our clients, regardless of their decisions. It is our vision to reach the east Austin and Dripping Springs communities with the truth about life. We prayerfully recruit dedicated staff and volunteers who are qualified and who love our clients.

We endeavor to portray the love of Christ in all we do. We endeavor to maintain a high level of professionalism to be examples in our community. We build positive relationships with other agencies that provide many other resources for our clients. We endeavor, through meeting the physical needs of our clients, to introduce them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.  Deuteronomy 30:19
Lydia – A Beating Heart is the first and only pro-life pregnancy resource center in Macedonia. In Macedonia and throughout the Balkans abortion is used without second thought as the primary form of birth control.  Often, when we ask a woman why she wants an abortion, she simply shrugs her shoulders and says she doesn’t really have a reason, it just seemed like the thing to do because she wasn’t planning on getting pregnant at this particular time.

Another difference in Macedonia from most situations in the U.S. is that most of the women having abortions already have a family.  It is very anti-cultural to have more than two children, three at most, so most women abort all pregnancies after the first two.  Many women will have had several abortions over the course of their lifetime.

As of 2013, there are some laws in place restricting abortion.  If a woman is less than 12 weeks pregnant, she is required to wait 72 hours, have counseling and get an ultrasound.  If she is over 12 weeks pregnant, she must obtain the signatures of three physicians approving the abortion.

We are so grateful for this law, but we also know that there is much to be done towards applying the law, as well as working to change the cultural concepts surrounding abortion and adoption. The Lydia Center is dedicated to counseling and helping women while promoting the value of life and the baby’s right to be born.  Our goal is to love, support, and assist women facing unplanned pregnancies, post-abortion trauma, and other family-related crises.  We also aid impoverished women by giving out donations of clothing, diapers, and other baby necessities.
