Last videos of Amanda Blackburn show her compassion, dedication to helping others

INDIANAPOLIS -- Weeks before Nov. 10, Amanda Blackburn and her husband Davey were doing what they've always done: Seeking to help others navigate their lives through the word of God and beyond.

In late October, the pair was waiting on a train, traveling to Chicago for a romantic getaway.

But before their selfish trip began, they stopped down to answer questions they'd received through the church that Davey was a pastor at; Resonate Church off of 86th Street on the north side of Indianapolis.

Questions about love, marriage, kids, dating, sex and any other relationship concern that might have crossed the minds of people just like you and me every day. These were the questions that Davey and Amanda were dealing with themselves every day, heightened even more so with an unborn child in Amanda's womb waiting to be brought into this world under the guidance of compassionate and selfless parents.

They posted a series of videos to YouTube with guidance for people they've never met while they waited on their ride to the Windy City, taking 20 minutes out of what could have been an extension of their couples' trip, but instead they sought to serve others.

Their comments focused on how to make changes to a relationship when needed, what teenagers should do about personal problems with friends and what the Bible means when it says that a wife should "submit" to their husbands.

The videos serve as one of the last glimpses into the life and relationship of the Blackburns before Amanda and her unborn child were killed in an attempted robbery at her home on the northwest side on Nov. 10, while her young son sat in another room.

In the videos, the couple talks about duty as a part of love, and doing things for their son because they want him to live a better life, not because they "have to."

Amanda's organs were harvested to be donated to help others even in her death.

Watch some of the last images of their happiness together in the videos below:
