Editor’s Note: One of the ministries UFC supports is Dove Medical, a prenatal medical clinic in Eugene that specializes in pregnancy diagnosis and decision-making. It is a joy to have one of the clinic’s registered nurses, Sheila Wolf, share a bit about herself today.
I was born in to a wonderful Christian family here in Oregon and remember asking Jesus to save me when I was 4 years old, but it wasn’t until I was in my early 30’s that I really came to understand what grace was. Wow! How incredible the knowledge is that Jesus died for me, not because of what I had done for Him or could do for Him, but simply because He loves me. I want very much for my patients to know the incredible hope and peace that comes from knowing Jesus’ love and salvation and the freedom of knowing His forgiveness covers everything they have done or will do.
I have worked at Dove Medical as a registered nurse since 2015. I am very passionate about the work done there and have become even more passionate about it as I see the effects in my patients’ lives. Dove recently hired a nurse practitioner, who is fantastic, and we are now beginning the process of furthering STD testing and treatment. This will allow us to have more contact with our patients and help them in some very practical ways. For more information on the services we provide, please visit us here. We are also on Instagram and Facebook.
In my time off, I love the outdoors with rafting, hiking, and gardening being my favorites. My favorite verses are Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
As you think of Dove Medical, please pray…
- For unity for the Dove staff. It can be exhausting work, and though it’s a truly fabulous group of people, it can be hard when we are all tired.
- For wisdom and strength as Dove transitions to more types of patient care. There are many details that have to be worked out along the way.
- For refreshment of our hearts. There have been many heart-wrenching cases this last year and refreshment is needed.
