Inspired For Life: A Seaside Soiree

Inspiration always strikes when we’re fully rested: when our minds are clear, and our hearts are full, ready to pour into the next thing God’s calling us to do. We experience the real joy of the Lord in these times, who strengthens us to keep going!

And that’s why for our 5th annual fundraising event, we are taking you to the West Coast! We’re excited AND inspired to host a seaside soiree’ for our wonderful supporters in the golden state…California!

Our 2023 Inspired for Life: A Seaside Soiree’ is happening this coming April 21 at the beautiful Alila Marea Beach Resort Encinitas / Boutique Luxury Hotel!

We want you to come and leave more inspired and more invigorated by taking a weekend for yourself to relax while celebrating our impact from 2022 and learning firsthand what we have planned for 2023.

What to Expect

Enjoy barefoot luxury and all that the resort has to offer: beachfront/ocean views, a spa, fine dining, and a chance to take a breather.

On Friday, April 21st we’ll have a cliffside reception with light hors d’oeuvres, followed by a gourmet dinner prepared by five-star chefs. Those that purchase one of our retreat packages will have the pleasure of meeting our guest speakers.

The attire for the seaside soiree’ will be beach formal. (Think Tommy Bahama or a Hawaiian vacation!) We want you to be comfortable and relaxed.

On the following Saturday, there will be a vision-casting light breakfast for those who have purchased one of our retreat packages.

Seth Gruber


The son of a pregnancy resource center director, Seth Gruber was raised in the pro-life movement and has been speaking publicly on behalf of unborn children since the age of 19.

First gaining exposure during his college years, Seth founded and directed the Students for Life Club at Westmont College, a Christian liberal arts institution. While there, he conducted educational displays on campus to challenge the institution for their refusal to take a formal position on abortion. During the summer, Seth interned with a pro-life organization in Southern California, where he helped coordinate and conduct educational displays at over 10 universities and engaged with thousands of students on the topic of abortion.

Upon graduation, Seth joined Life Training Institute as a pro-life speaker. He is now a nationally renowned speaker for life, the founder and president of The White Rose Resistance, and the host of the popular podcast “UnAborted.” A compelling and passionate voice for the unborn, Seth Gruber is reaching all generations and is helping change the way that our country thinks about and responds to the evil of abortion.

Zion Clark

Special Guest

Zion Clark was born September 29th 1997 in Columbus, Ohio. He was born with a rare birth defect called Caudal Regression Syndrome which caused him to be born without legs. Zion was given up for adoption at birth as his mother was not fit to take care of him, bouncing in and out of prison.

He spent 17 years in foster care where he moved between 9 different homes and dealt with a lot of abuse. He was taken advantage of and labeled a problem child due to his birth defect and lack of parental support. Life for his first 17 years was extremely dark, he dealt with significant moments which taught him to grow up without real children and grow resilient.

He used wrestling and music as an escape or outlet for his poor home life he was dealing with. 6 months before aging out the system and being sent to a group home his now mother adopted him and changed his life forever.
