Pam Tebow told Sav-A-Life supporters Monday night about her family’s “God story” — the baby she was advised to abort who grew up to be Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Tim Tebow.

Tebow was the keynote speaker for Save-A-Life’s annual fundraiser held at First Baptist Church in Brewton. The organization, which has offices in Brewton and Atmore, is a pro-life resource center that offers counseling services and parenting support.

Tebow said she looks to four tools in life: a master (God), a manual (the Bible), a mindset of serving and a mission.

“Saving babies and saving moms is a good work. This is a manual for that,” she said, holding up a Bible.

Tebow also said that she believes her mission in life has changed in recent years to include pro-life ministry. Her son’s story became national news when he won the Heisman, and both have made the pro-life platform a part of their speaking engagements.

After they began to tell their story, Tebow said she heard several young women tell her that they had changed their minds about abortion.

“I heard that story over and over again,” she said. “I saw that God may have a new mission for me.”
