How Do You Sign Your Name to Promote Life?

Do you feel daunted by the complexities of employing social media technology for pro-life advocacy? Here is a simple way that anyone with an email account can begin to reach out to others with a life-affirming message: add a pro-life email signature to your account. It is free. It is easy. It will reach anyone who opens an email sent by you.

What is an email signature? It’s simply the way you sign your name at the end of your email message. An automated email signature will be stored with your email account and attached at the end of each message you send or forward, without you having to retype it each time. For example, the automated email signature used by The Hausvater Project reads as follows:
The Hausvater Project
127 Long St.
Mankato, MN 56001
The Hausvater Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation promoting a biblical vision for family, church, and society in the spirit of the Lutheran confessions.
You can support our work every time you search the internet or shop online:
Notice that it includes hyperlinks to the organization’s website and Facebook page, as well as a slogan identifying the organization’s mission.

Of course, an individual can use an email signature just as well as an organization. Consider these possibilities (the names are fictitious, but the messages are real):

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD; the fruit of the womb is a reward.” (Psalm 127:3)
Mary Johnson
Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and that they they may have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
Bob and Linda Frederickson
Pro Choice? Consider the blessings God has chosen for your life! “God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.” (Ephesians 1:4)
