struggling through grief,
wondering if there really is a God,
or wanting to know some about how Islam differs from Christianity.
My most recent book is Deliver Me: Hope, Help, & Healing through True Stories of Unplanned Pregnancy (April 2011). This book is for women (and men) in an unplanned pregnancy or with one in their past. More than 50 true stories show various choices they made (keeping the child, giving for adoption, abortion...) and how they feel about it now. Kind, compassionate. Interesting statistics, helpful resources.
