Join us to hear the tender heart of one woman who has been on this journey and now ministries to those who want what Christ wants for them. Learn how to respond like Jesus.
A baby changes everything. It can be messy. It can also be beautiful. Pregnant at fifteen, and choosing to keep her child, our guest knew that her life would never be the same. Through her compelling story, and stories of others-parents struggling with miscarriage, infertility, abusive relationships, addictions, abortions, and those mourning the children they placed for adoption-we witness beauty and redemption rising from the ashes of lost hope.
