A record 370 guests attended the Troutt Lecture Series at Kenny and Lisa Troutt’s home on Monday, October 3, 2011. The event marked the 10-year anniversary of Council for Life, which was formed by 11 Dallas women including: Ann Carruth, Judy Ferguson, Elaine Harman, Bette Hoag, Sue Justice, Suzanne Nash, Sarah Perot, Janet Quisenberry, Kim Rozell, Jill Smith and Lisa Troutt.
“I don’t think any of us could have imagined the plans that God had in mind when He called this group of women together 10 years ago,” said Lisa Troutt, founding member of Council for Life. “We are thrilled to see the efforts of those who are a part of the Council for Life raise awareness and funding for so many life-affirming causes and organizations.”
Well-known author, speaker and radio commentator Chuck Colson spoke about the sanctity of life and the uniqueness of the American culture to support life-affirming decisions. Kerby Anderson of KLTY’s Point of View radio show was the master of ceremonies.
“We have been blessed these past few years to have scholars and theologians speak at the Council for Life lectures,” said Troutt. “They teach and remind us that human dignity is God-given because he created us in His image. It was such a privilege to hear from Chuck Colson, a modern-day William Wilberforce, who is changing culture through teaching and writing about God’s calling in our lives and how we should live.”
Council for Life’s annual luncheon will take place at 11:00 a.m. on November 10, 2011, in the Chantilly Ballroom at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. This year’s luncheon will celebrate a decade of Council for Life and feature former super model and fashion designer Kathy Ireland as a speaker.
