The Book

Our world is desperately broken.

Man, woman, child, everyone – is hurting.

Life is not valued because people have forgotten their dignity and their invaluable worth.

We’ve forgotten this, because we’ve forgotten what grace, mercy, and forgiveness mean.

We’ve forgotten this because we don’t remember what genuine, authentic love is….and most of all, we’ve forgotten how to be loved.

This crisis is jeopardizing lives.  Especially women.

Women are the only creatures that can co-create with God.  Out of all the places God could have chosen to form his most precious creation {human life}, he chose the womb of a woman.  Incredible.

The world, however, does not think this is incredible, remarkable, or even significant.

The world says of woman:

You are nothing

Your body is a hindrance, an inconvenience, a flaw

You are not good enough

You are unloveable

This is a crisis.

Because of this ideology, young women are treating their bodies like trash.  They have forgotten their dignity.  They are getting drunk, hooking up, and hating themselves.

Then……when this broken lifestyle leads to the unplanned, the scary, the terrifying, the embarrassing – a pregnancy, there is no where to turn.


Abortion is the answer (according to the world).  Women are too broken, too hurt, too ashamed and beaten down to remember that they are worth more than this.

I would know….I was one of these girls.

So You Think You’re Pro-Life? is a book dedicated to all the broken young women who face an unplanned pregnancy.  It will give insight on the REAL thoughts, emotions, and spiritual attacks that come with an unplanned pregnancy.  It will tell how the devil attacks ALL life, and he does it by first attacks the heart of a woman.  This book will also reveal how life, forgiveness, and mercy can make all things beautiful again.  It will remind women of their innate unchanging dignity and that life is precious, beautiful, spectacular, remarkable, and worth fighting for. It will teach us how we can really be pro-life by loving the woman first.

    I have been saying to pro life people what you are saying for years but now in the past 2 yrs I have received the courage to say it to anyone to listen. So glad you are putting it into a book. I am not that girl but could have been. Sharon Flottman c# 469-693-3701
