Hello, I’m Jill Morikone, and this week we’re excited to tell you about a brand new series coming soon to 3ABN! It’s called Divine Design, and it’s hosted by Patti Barnes.
You know, there’s nothing more precious than a newborn baby—a gift from our loving heavenly Father. How important it is for us to become educated as to how to best provide for the well-being of these little bundles of love, not only after they’re are born, but while they are still being formed, and even before conception. Patti has long had a burden to educate young ladies about childbirth, since she is a Certified Professional Midwife and has practiced midwifery for over 30 years. In recent years, she’s concentrated her efforts on interesting others to enter the field of midwifery and childbirth education. Patti has taught seminars across the country, and has even been a guest on 3ABN’s Health for a Lifetime program with Don Macintosh.
More recently, she’s has implemented a Childbirth Education and Midwifery curriculum at Hartland College in Virginia, and put together a few short promotional videos with the Hartland Media Team. These five-minute productions caught the attention of our 3ABN vice president and general manager, Mollie Steenson. She watched them with fascination, and says that she was amazed that the topic could be presented in such a family-friendly way. Soon Patti and her student media team expanded the project to thirteen episodes, covering a wide variety of topics appropriate for all ages!
The topics cover many aspects of the formation of a baby, the miracle of childbirth, and the amazing transitions that take place as the baby is born. They also cover the importance of good prenatal care, the eight laws of health in childbirth, common complaints during pregnancy, and many other topics.
We believe that everyone who watches will benefit from these educational and spiritual programs, from expectant parents to grandparents, since these Christ-centered episodes give glory to our Creator and demonstrate a sample of the Divine wisdom and power in human reproduction.
Divine Design begins on September 7 at 9:30 a.m. Central, right here on 3ABN. You won’t want to miss it!
