why we shouldn’t support the ice bucket challenge

EDITED TO ADD:  As a blogger I’m constantly learning and assessing how to communicate better and more effectively. Looking back I wish I had titled this blog post : Rethinking the Ice Bucket Challenge. Because while I’m still choosing not to participate, I think that many have used this community challenge to talk about not only ALS but also the aspects involved in research such as ESCR and awareness of ethical Biomedical labs.  Knowledge is key! I hope readers can understand that we aren’t just being negative about something that seems so positive…. we are just trying to live consistently with what we are most passionate about.

This past week my husband and I read something about the ALS ice bucket challenge and once we read it we couldn’t ignore it and started digging deeper.  You see this good hearted genius challenge IS directly linked to the ALSA foundation. To date over 30 Million dollars has been donated to that specific organization through this social media campaign.  So we researched further about ALSA and found that while we have no doubt they have the best of intentions, we simply can not support them in their efforts to finding a cure because well, we believe life begins at conception.  And that conviction proves to be the reason why we can’t support this campaign due to the default organization it contributes to.  This is what Dan wrote on why he or others who are Pro-life shouldn’t join in on the ice bucket challenge.

This isn’t to say if you’ve done it you’re wrong (If we hadn’t read what we did I have no doubt I would have a cute photo of my kids with water buckets on their heads up on facebook by now)  it’s just asking us to be informed and to look deeper. Because once we do,  then we can align our efforts and resources to those things that are consistent with what our core values are.  And I do realize that LOTS of other Biomedical organizations also fall into this same category for us. We are just trying to research and be educated as we seek to live consistently with our convictions and spend our money and use our voices to those things which we are most passionate about and that we feel support life in a way that honors all life…. even the tiniest ones.  Emotions and Experience plays big into our feelings about finding a cure for these diseases that have taken the lives of our loved ones. And I hope and pray that research continues and cures are found!  But I also hope and pray that  during the most darkest of moments that we can find Truth to be absolute and a strong rock to stand on when things around us feel so very subjective.

We want a cure. We want research. We just don’t want it done the way ALSA (and so many other biomedical research labs) is doing it.  So we want to be a voice. It might be a small one and seemingly useless in the shadow of 30 millions dollars and growing raised. But It’s still facts that we think are important to know and stand on moving forward. BE sure to see the LINK at the bottom of the post to an organization that would be great to support if this is your conviction.

Here’s what Dan Chappell wrote:

A humble challenge on the ALS ice bucket challenge:

I have considered for days now whether or not to say anything in a public way about the ALS/ALSA challenge. But, tonight I must confess I feel as though some perspective is needed in order for individuals to make an informed, and I think important, ethical decision. First, it is important in our day of social media revolutions to be thorough in our investigation of the causes we support. This is an important word to us all (including me). I want to say that the desire to find a cure for ALS, Parkinson’s,Alzheimer’s, and many other debilitating diseases, is a admirable and important human goal. However, the intent to save a life does not always justify the means we choose to bring about that result. 

 If you are a believer and seek to be consistently pro-life I truly ask you to look deeper and see what your money and support truly funds and supports.  The ALS Association uses embryonic stem cells as a primary research method. They also are an organization that lobbies for federal funding of the use of ESCR (Embryonic Stem Cell Research). These embryo’s are harvested and/or donated and then as part of the research process of many Biomedical Labs they are destroyed by the removal of stem cells and are discarded. They also use fetal tissue that have come because a child was aborted. This must be an important consideration to all who want to honor human life as the image of God, from conception to death.  

You can see why the use of embryonic stem cells is so popular… but if you believe that life begins at conception then it comes at far too great of a price.


From ALSA.org: “Adult stem cell research is important and should be done alongside embryonic stem cell research as both will provide valuable insights. Only through exploration of all types of stem cell research will scientists find the most efficient and effective ways to treat diseases.”

 I ask you to consider whether this information should guide you in your public support and funding of such research. I want to be clear, I am not judging nor am I questioning the character of researchers or those who have and will take this challenge. I simply am begging you to be informed and to consider the cost of experimental research to human life and dignity.   Saint John Paul II said in 2003:  “Any treatment which claims to save human lives, yet is based upon the destruction of human life in its embryonic state, is logically and morally contradictory, as is any production of human embryos for the direct or indirect purpose of experimentation or eventual destruction.”   You say we are saving lives, but not one cure has come using ESCR and how many lives has it cost? 

 

 

Even Scientists have studied and written on the down sides to using ESCR vs. Adult stem cell research and the benefits to the latter are far greater especially in the current ability for clinical trials on living people.  It’s the HOPE of something… of a possible cure… a possible treatment that fuels ESCR. And to me that’s not the kind Hope I can get behind because it impacts lives in the here and now and in the coming years in a harmful way. AND furthermore, Think about if the research on embryos does result in a breakthrough, then there would be mass amounts of embryos needed and harvested.  Not to discount the suffering of those with ALS or those caring for them…. it’s just to say, we can look for Hope in other places and trust we are seeking the best of everyone.  

So, I will not be dumping Water on my head and I will not be donating to the ALS Association, but it is not because I do not care. Trust me I do. I simply believe that in seeking to save a life, I cannot support the destruction of another life’s right to exist, no matter what the stage of development. I ask you to pray and before the Lord consider your position on this. Imagine that if we all spoke with one voice for ethical biomedical research, the results we could accomplish. 

 

Our friend Amber Lehman who is CEO at a First Solutions Pregnancy Center in Raleigh wrote and encouraged us all to think about what we CAN do.  She wrote:

For a pretty thorough look at organizations that support embryonic stem cell research you can go here: http://www.jp2mri.org/organizationslist.htm. Consider what impact could be had if the organization you love who does ESCR received hundred, maybe thousands, of letters telling them that you will begin supporting them when their funding no longer supports ESCR. Just consider it. Consider thinking through your moral values and what you really believe. Are you pro-life? How can you live that more consistently? Are embryos the tiniest human beings in need of protection or not? Could we fight for those embryos left behind by IVF to be donated to couples not able to afford IVF full price? How many ways could we change this issue if we thought about it.

Wait a minute, Amber, I thought you ran crisis pregnancy center and helping women through unexpected pregnancies? Why so passionate about this? Because it is equal to an abortion–you may as well dump a bucket of ice and give to Planned Parenthood (#1 abortion provider worldwide).

A human life is a human life at 1 day old in a petri dish and 100 years old on a death bed–there is no other logical conclusion I can find, either we logically take life back to day one or we find some arbitrary line in “life” to determine he/she is a person with value.

 

I have numerous links and an extensive bibliography if you would like to know more and do in depth research, I hope you do. I would be happy to provide those to you.  Please email me at { danandcasey@gmail.com }.  But I feel as though it is important to offer an alternative for an organization who is doing strong, important but ethical research.

Consider the John Paul II Medical Research Institute.

Or write the ALS Association and other ESCR supporting organizations…. tell them your concerns and your convictions. Let’s do more than a fun facebook video that draws attention to an organization that wants to save some lives but at the expense of untold numbers of others. Let’s save lives….even the itty bitty ones, the ones with no voice and no choice and let’s impact our world!  (Proverbs 31:8)  Because Ethical research absolutely matters.  And unethical research though it may seem to or promise to justify the means… has consequences that I don’t think many of us have stopped to consider or weigh with the future of our society, let alone Eternity, in mind. 

May we be a people of continual learning and  knowledge and wisdom. May we champion life for all people and be consistent in our beliefs and convictions.  

** And ya’ll I (Casey) get it… this all feels so overwhelming and personal. Some of you have watched loved ones die before your eyes and before they should have. You want us to find cures!! And when you start looking at who uses Embryonic Stem Cells you start feeling the walls caving in on you because the lists are vast and the organizations are large and they involve fighting Cancer, Ms, Diabetes, All sorts of foundations and organizations looking for cures to terrible diseases.  You can start to feel like why bother… I’ll never be able to avoid all of them, or afford to support the few who do ethical research on my own.  But take heart, I just think we can stand where we can stand and all wrestle with the convictions we hold to and seek education and then provide education and then trust that the Spirit will lead those to walk in a way that is founded on truth and knowledge even when it feels overwhelming and hard.

I do realize that this is one small tip of a very large iceberg and that our society for the most part doesn’t have the same convictions we (who are Pro-life) might. But because this is something I’m very passionate about I wanted to share and just give depth to a social media campaign (which is genius and good hearted!!) but that way we all can still act and give to the organizations which best support the convictions of our hearts! And those who do know me know that I’m for ethics in many areas of life! (Hello International Adoption.. I have lots of stories how doing the hard thing but the right thing was something we had to decide to do in our journey to Africa)  This is just one that is at the forefront of many people’s minds and facebook feeds.

Back to school on South Lake Street

EDITED TO ADD:  Half a day y’all… That’s all it took to take care of 5 kiddos every need for this coming school year!  Do you know how happy their parents will be? How much of a push off to the kids year it will be? Big time!!! Thanks everyone who are getting things and gave money to get the rest! You truly are the hands and feet of Gods love! These kids can’t give anything in return back to us but someday they will grow and learn and maybe give back to our world by being the best them they could be!! Hoping We get to help them and their parents see this year through when everything isn’t so fresh and new. But for now…it’s going to be such a fun back to school week for them!! Thank you!!!!!!!!

 

It’s been just over a month since we moved to the Fairmount neighborhood and one of the biggest blessings and joys for me has been getting to know my neighbors slowly but surely.

If you know me… you know I really like kids. And I really like THESE  kids! They are funny and smart and love to play.  They live down the road from me and their parents are working hard to make ends meet…. and sometimes the ends don’t meet.  They have really helped me see how blessed I am and how rich I am… but also to see how happy they are to be a family and how their happiness doesn’t have a lot to do with their possessions or how nice their house is or what they don’t have.  God’s worked SO much in this grumbly heart of mine and I’m thankful for new eyes to view my life and the life of the community around us!

So with the school year upon us, I wanted to help them not feel so overwhelmed and get this school year off to a great start!  They go to a community school nearby and they will need school supplies and uniforms.  I’m hoping we can help them get those by monday before they start classes!  I can’t do it on my own, but I thought together we could make this happen EASY! This isn’t about doing something that the parents are neglecting to do… I have no doubt that they would find a way and get their kids what they needed. This IS about being a blessing and taking care of our neighbors who would be so grateful for things that so often we take for granted!

So here’s the info:   If you are local and have access to uniforms or school supplies and would rather purchase/find them yourself and drop them off to me… that’s great! Just let me know and I can get you sizes.  { email me at caseylynn_78@Yahoo.com }  If you aren’t local or just want to help and contribute so that I can go get them the things they need… that’s great!!  Just click on the pay pal link below! (let me know if there is anything specific you’d like to sponsor for them)

This is just for these five kiddos who live near us. They are Pre-K, Kindergarten, two 3rd graders and a 5th grader! HERE is their school’s supply lists.  HERE is the uniform standards.

 




 

 

You may be thinking ALL of these kids need clothes and shoes…. but on a hot muggy day here in the culdesac this is just the way we roll! We LOVE summertime around here!!

ALSO…… for you Local/Fairmount peeps, The kids spend a lot of time at our place and they LOVE LOVE riding bikes. (what kid doesn’t!) But right now they all share the few bikes we have between us and while that works most of the time…. if you see any used or new medium size kids bikes or hot wheel type of bikes at yard sales or thrift stores at a great price… consider getting them and donating them to our little neighborhood gang!

The Story Starts at Home – Fort Worth

 

 

This will be the second The Story starts at Home Photography workshop. The first of this workshop took place this summer in Raleigh NC.  Angey and I didn’t really know what to expect doing it but it was awesome and more than I could have ever hoped for.  I am still loving the group of ladies that came and seeing what they are doing in the area of photography and their life with kids has just made my heart soar!  I don’t want this to be just a workshop. If you’re anything like me, you need the time to get away and soak up information but you also need the time afterwards to process and work through the things you heard.  That’s what I hope to offer you by having this and then offering 6 weeks (or more) of assignments and feedback! The goal of this is to have it be more of a mentorship… but it will kick off with an awesome one day workshop!  I want to have a day where we pour into you moms who are really wanting to capture this incredible life that God has blessed us with.

As a photographer and a mother of littles I  have experienced what it’s like to have motherhood take over all aspects of my life, drain my creativity, and get me preoccupied with lots of continual meeting of needs and exhaustion.  But I also know what it’s like to want deeply to record, document, and remember these days because although they feel so long, they fly by so quickly. 

Even the busiest of moms spend a lot of time at home. That’s where life is lived… that’s where routine is established… that’s where intimate family moments happen… that’s where belongings are kept… that’s where learning starts… that’s where little hearts are trained… that’s where adventures are born…. that’s where the most love is shared.  

Home is the place where all these memories are made but are often forgotten... if not by us, but for sure in a generation or two. I want to change that! I want to help you press into your life at home, have an inspired life at home, cultivate depth into your home, and to document it in such a way that will not only benefit you but generations to come.  That is what’s called leaving a legacy that matters and is remembered! That is what I am passionate about and hope you will be too.

This workshop/mentorship will be an all day time of  thinking, journaling, processing, exploring, questioning, fiddling, shooting, and learning as we show you things that have helped me as a mom, who while yes I am a photographer, but I  want our roles as moms to matter more and to be remembered. I pray it’s going to be life changing for the ladies who do come…especially on a day to day type of level. 

We will be talking about

* Time Management

* Priorities & Boundaries

* Creativity at Home

* Getting and staying Inspired

* Capturing the Everyday moments

* Special Events and Seasons as a parent

* Composition and Finding the Light

* iphonography  and social media

* The 6 week follow up online group

 * And more!

I will be sharing my heart with you, talking about struggles and victories I’ve had and won in this area of being a mom who wants to remember and yet also be in the moment day by day!  I love this workshop because I need it too! This is going to be stuff that all of us need to walk through and process and be challenged by. But I find that when you do it with friends… it’s way more effective and it’s a whole lot more fun!

Because I am keeping this a small group in an intimate setting (just six moms!),  my hope is that I will be able to meet you where you are in your skill level, struggles, what your overall desire and goals are and also to be able to connect more one on one.  We will not only have the day together but will also be a part of an online mentorship group with just our class afterwards that will  challenge you to put into practice what we learned at the workshop as well as give you 6 weeks of assignments and encouragement as you reach your goals in photographing your life at home and as a mom!

 

The Cost:  $175.  This workshop opportunity is only available to the first 6 ladies who sign up! So if you know this is something you want and need to be a part of…. sign up FAST to get your spot!

What it Includes:  The Workshop, Coffee (of course!), a Cafe Lunch, Workshop Notebook and a 6 week online mentorship afterwards with me.

Where: We will be spending the day at my house!  It will be from 9:30 am-4:30 pm.

What to Bring: Your camera (this might be a DSLR or it might be your iPhone! Doesn’t matter… just bring it.). And if you have a favorite pen we will be doing a lot of writing!

How to Pay:  Email me at Caseylynn_78@Yahoo.com and let me know you’re in and I”ll send you a pay pal invoice or let you know how to send a check/money order.

6 years

August 9th.

 

It’s a day that marks so much and yet as the years pass I find that it’s a day that I don’t fully know how to celebrate, morn, share, honor, or rejoice in.

I feel like August 9th is a day of beautiful contradictories.

Every year on this day I find myself busy and slightly irritable….yet at the same time so aware of how happy I am because of the life that I am living now that 6 years ago I couldn’t begin to fathom.

It’s the day I became a mother yet the saddest day of my life.

It’s a day I long for eternity yet find myself wanting to beautify my life here because I am here and more aware of it than ever…and yet I know all the things I want to fill my shopping baskets with does nothing to help the neighbor next door who can’t keep her power on day by day.

I’m sorrowful that my son died so young but I know he was always wanted and loved and left peacefully…such a stark contrast to starving orphans and children being beheaded.

My firstborn would have been celebrating 6 years old today. But instead of cake and ice cream Asher is experiencing a life that is so much more incredible and doesn’t hold a candle to anything he could have ever had here. I don’t wish for him to be here. But I wish he hadn’t died. But I wouldn’t have this life had he lived. I think the way my heart has dealt with this dissonance is that I know that God has so wonderfully blessed us with these five little lives we have and I cherish them in ways I never would if I hadn’t said goodbye to my son, but He’s also entrusted Asher’s story to me!

So that’s why I wanted to write and share tonight what’s going on in my heart.

So to those who have loved and lost…. I just want to say that may your days be filled with these strange yet beautiful but irritating and very real paradoxes and may they keep us always cherishing the past and longing for more and embracing fully of the ever changing person God is molding us to be knowing that one day EVERYTHING will be made right and joy won’t have to be mingled with pain! Memories will make perfect sense and the goodness of God will be so clearly visible!

Let’s hug our earthly babies tomorrow and ask God for the wisdom and grace to parent them in such a way that they will see what matters most in this life….which isn’t this life after all.

Dallas Littles Club Weeks 1-26

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a part of something where artists collaborate to create something more beautiful and meaningful than we could on our own. So what an honor it was to be asked to join some incredible photographers and to showcase a photo of our kids once a week for a year that we took with our “Big girl camera” meaning our DSLR vs. our phones. I might have been downright giddy when they asked me!

Thus was born the Dallas Littles Club blog.

So every week we email Heather (LOVE her!!) our image and each week I love pouring over the precious sweet images of children that I’ve never met yet feel like I’ve come to know because I get a glimpse into their families, their homes, and their lives as they grow up this year. I can’t wait to squeeze them tight and meet them soon.

Here is the first half of 2014.

Things I learned in May

Today I’m linking up with Emily P. Freeman for “What We Learned” – the month of May.

1. I need to be inspired.

It hit me when I was watching The Million Dollar Arm a few weeks ago and was spell bounded by the scenery from India (which my heart lately is longing to go to… we would LOVE to adopt from there but I think we have too many kids for India adoption requirements, but who knows!) Anyway, I found myself feeling so inspired that I just wanted to come home and embrace more fully this life God has given me. Then I started thinking about being inspired and how I think that when I’m not being inspired that it effects my life at home, my walk with God and my relationships. I need to be in awe and wonder! It’s a springboard of a greater Awe and Wonder…the One who truly is the fuel to my fire, He is the fire too.   But as a stay at home mom… being inspired takes effort and requires you knowing what inspires you and taking the time to seek it out.  It’s out there and it’s everywhere… but it’s different for everyone. For me, I have to get out of my house… I have to watch movies about greatness… I want to see the ocean (here in texas that is more difficult I must say)… I need to be in the sunshine… (I think I probably should be a Floridian or Californian eh?)… I enjoy creative conversations… I have to take photos.   What inspires you to live out the life you feel called to live?

2. My desire for order sometimes causes me to live in chaos.

I have this crazy thing about me in that if I know that just cleaning a room won’t help the fact that it desperately needs to be organized so because of that it will get messed up quickly even though I do clean it… I will put it off and live in a messy room. When really just picking it up would probably make organizing it a lot easier. It’s strange. I also have to organize every closest, cabinet, space whenever I go out of town and leave my babies. It’s probably more of a control issue but for some reason it helps me be able to leave knowing that the hidden things are in order.

by artist Peter Crawley

3. You’d think it would be easier to live simply… whereas it’s simply not so.

We are moving. Moving SUCKS but getting rid of stuff and taking stock of what you have and what you really need is GREAT!  Thankfully neither Dan nor I are much of collectors of anything… except kids I guess.;)So parting with things that aren’t really necessary to live with isn’t too hard for us. But I think it’s crazy how fast stuff comes into your house even when you’re trying to keep stuff out.  I always say that it’s actually more of a challenge to intentionally live with less things than to live with more. Things just naturally have a way of accumulating. Not sure how really. But gosh, I want to live with less in my home but I find that it’s a lot of work to actually do so.  

4. No matter what changes come in life, I will battle fear.

Even if it’s the best change in the world……ESPECIALLY if it’s the best change in the world, fear will always be there lurking! I have found that while we’ve really been able to pinpoint the things we as a family want and desire for our lives as we grow and cultivate these little lives around us and the world around us, but making those decisions that actually carry those things out can be really hard to do. It’s scary to do something different even when you know that’s more what you want for your life.  I keep saying to myself  “Perfect Love casts out Fear” and it’s TRUTH!! I remember fearing adopting Zoe after having just lost a child, I remember agreeing to foster Jack and not knowing what that would even look like long term. I remember fearing signing on to adopt TWO international orphans knowing that it would cost A LOT of money that we didn’t have, I remember having a panic attack in the middle of Walmart and sitting on the floor as I clung to the wheels of my full shopping cart knowing that the next day I would get on a plane to go to a country in civil unrest for 6 weeks leaving my two precious little ones at home. I remember KNOWING beyond a shadow of a doubt that we wanted… we needed a child with Down syndrome in our family but fearing all sorts of things… all the unknowns.  ALL the BEST freaking things in my life have come because we were okay for our lives to change…. in spite of the, at times, crushing fear we were feeling inside!!  You’d think we’d just live and learn and just not fear as we continue to welcome change and embrace what God is doing next in our lives. But, nope… fear is still there. And I think as long as we are breathing… as long as the enemy thinks there is a chance we will stay in our comfort zone… there will be fear.  May we all be people who see it coming… ride the wave of terror… and still embrace the change that is to come!

5.  This is the last month when people ask me how old my kids are that I’ll ever be able to reply with  “1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.”  I wish I had a camera in my eyeglasses to capture the slowly but quickly changing expression on the faces of those who ask as I start counting and keep on counting.

 

6. Why is Apple Cider Vinegar the cure all?

Why couldn’t it be Tea, or some sort of Juice or the cocoa bean? ACV… it’s so simple of a remedy for almost everything but everything in me wants to do everything I can to avoid having to take it. It’s truly awful!! (but dang it, when I do… it works!)

The Story starts at Home – A photography workshop for moms

 

Every summer the Chappell clan goes on what we call is our annual Epic Summer Road Trip!  Next month we are heading to Raleigh and then up to Michigan. We can’t wait and are really looking forward to all the loved ones we will get to see along the way.

This year one of my Best Friends, Angey Price and I are so excited to be doing this together.  As we talked and explored ideas about meeting up and sharing life and the challenges that photography our home and family brings, a photography workshop JUST for MOMS was born!  Our goal is to have it be more of a mentorship… but it will kick off with an awesome one day workshop!  We wanted to have a day where we pour into you moms who are really wanting to capture this incredible life that God has blessed us with.

Both of us as photographers have experienced what it’s like to have motherhood take over all aspects of our lives and drain our creativity and to get us preoccupied with lots of continual meeting of needs and exhaustion.  But we also know what it’s like to want deeply to record, document, and remember these days since, more than once we’ve experienced or heard that, though they feel so long, they fly by so quickly

Even the busiest of moms spend a lot of time at home. That’s where life is lived… that’s where routine is established… that’s where intimate family moments happen… that’s where belongings are kept… that’s where learning starts… that’s where little hearts are trained… that’s where adventures are born…. that’s where the most love is shared.  Home is the place where all these memories are made but are often forgotten... if not by us, but for sure in a generation or two.
