RESPONDING TO THE NEED
When Gary and Lynette Frost joined in marriage over 45 years ago, they had a faith-filled expectation that God would grant them the privilege of bearing 10 children. An anchor passage the LORD gave them, Psalm 127:3, reads, “Children are a gift from the Lord and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” We know that God is quite unpredictable as to how He answers our prayers but very predictable that He will answer in his own way and in His own time.
Bettering the lives of children and youth has directly and/or indirectly been the driving passion of Gary and Lynette since they were married Oct. 9, 1976. They were instrumental in developing programs that focused on children’s academic, attitudinal, athletic and artistic proficiency.
Approximately 6 years ago, the Frosts became aware that the Mahoning Valley (Youngstown, Ohio) had one of the highest infant mortality rates in the state and in the nation. This rate is determined by the number of children that die before their first birthday. Many factors play into these untimely deaths, such as poor prenatal care, post-traumatic stress during pregnancy, nutrition issues, poor pediatric care, substance abuse, accidents, domestic violence and the many dynamics that grow out of poverty.
As the Frosts prayerfully sought ways to intervene in this tragic reality, the Lord birthed the Eagle’s Nest Life Equipping Center. The Eagle’s Nest is a ‘dream come true’ and was Lynette’s vision as she sacrificially worked with women within the church and community who were desperate for parenting skills.
The Frosts fully identify with the principles of ‘Sanctity of Life’, however, they believe that protecting and assisting vulnerable women and their children doesn’t start at conception and end on the birth date. The vision statement goes like this: “We exist that the unborn may survive, the newborn may thrive, and parents be equipped to teach their children how to fly.” At the Eagle’s Nest, young women are discouraged from trusting in the broken systems of romance and government. These Eagle Women are trained to depend on the stable wings of Jesus and the uplifting wind of the Holy Spirit. The Frost’s know that without Jesus this generation is doomed to helplessness and hopelessness. They are obsessed with seeing these young families press forward to enjoy Help, Hope and Heaven.
The 2020 Covid Pandemic caused a shift in strategy for many agencies, ministries and corporations, including The Eagle’s Nest. Our new location is the former Esther Home: a safe, cozy, country setting that provides space for rejuvenation and reflection opportunities for women.
Transitioning from a residential model of operation (women residing in the facility) to a retreat model (hosting women in a retreat environment) allows us to address a wider breadth of women’s needs: Prevention, Intervention, & Life Application.
