Finding Hope – An Interview with Diana Cahill, Executive Director of ALC Shelbyville

June 12, 2017 by Alton Webb

While we might not admit it to others, we all have things we’ve done that make us feel like we’re unqualified and unable to move forward with God’s call on our life.

But many times, the difference between those who make a difference and those who stay on the sidelines isn’t how loud their voice is or how great their idea is…it’s the freedom they’ve found in Christ that allows them to move forward.

Diana Cahill, the executive director of ALC Shelbyville, is one of those people. She shares not just her incredible story, but the stories of women and their families as they navigate unplanned pregnancies.

This is one story of an Outsider that will give you instant inspiration, and a clear call to action.
