Welcome to Hosea Initiative where a Promise and Truth collide.

Terry Beatley | President & Founder

Terry BeatleyAfter twenty years working in the insurance and investment business, Terry did what feminists had warned her would be most dissatisfying – she became a stay at home mom homeschooling her children for eight years. While studying American history with her children, she became perplexed as to how America overcame slavery only to dehumanize another category of people – preborn babies.

Terry’s quest for answers led her to research and then interview Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the “Keeper of the Abortion Industry Keys” and co-founder of NARAL. Dr. Nathanson encouraged Terry to teach America how and why he deceived women and gave her his personal parting message to Teach the Truth. She made him a promise that she would.

Terry will soon release her compelling book, Deceiving American Women, written for those on both sides of the abortion issue. In addition, Terry has the goal of making a feature film about the deception, redemption and personal message of the “Abortion King,” Dr. Nathanson.

She was recently accepted into the 2014-2015 Chuck Colson Centurions Worldview Program and is actively engaged in raising funds to make Hosea Initiative into a national organization.

Terry ran a PAC devoted to defeating Planned Parenthood’s “Saving Grace in the Virginia General Assembly”; has worked to awaken Virginians to the domestic and international threat to their parental rights; she has worked toward racial reconciliation by uplifting the principles of American liberty in minority communities. Currently, Terry serves on the Virginia Christian Alliance Board of Directors.

She is a 1986 Virginia Tech graduate; resides in Virginia with her husband of 28 years and two children and is passionate about liberating women with truth.
