Fresh Start Pregnancy Resource Center will host their 3rd annual fundraising banquet, Life is Beautiful, this November and are excited to announce this year’s featured guest who will both speak and entertain. Caitlin Jane is a popular singer and has “an amazing testimony of God’s healing and grace in their lives,” said Fresh Start Board Member Candace Riner. “Both she and her husband had cancer and were told they could not have children and now they are cancer free and have a little boy.” Caitlin and family will travel to Mena from Virginia, where they make their home.
According to her website, www.caitlinjanetunes.com, “Caitlin Jane has performed at numerous events honoring and advocating for life, including the National March for Life in Washington D.C., as well as pregnancy center banquets across the country. She has used music as an outreach to inner city rescue missions, and has performed concerts overseas with Made In Hope—an organization that liberates women and children out of the darkness of human trafficking. Her music career has expanded beyond singing, opening doors for ministry in speaking to women’s groups and young people. As the recipient of the 2016 Kindred Award for Female Contemporary Artist of the Year, she has been recognized for her talent, yet music isn’t just about performing to Caitlin Jane—rather, music is an opportunity to worship and give glory to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
