Product Description

One day you're a typical student. You're working part-time at McDonald's to pay for your clothes and car. The next day, you're a mother-to-be. You're confused and scared. Emotional and standoffish. You feel like a kid, but now with a huge responsibility. How could your life change so fast? Your youth wasn't supposed to be packed with worries and obligations, Lamaze classes and daycare choices-and you've still got work and school to deal with. Whatever happened to fun, friendships and dating? You'd do anything for your baby-but what about you? What about your needs? Sharing stories from her own experience as a teenage mom and from other young mothers, Tricia Goyer explains the nine basic needs that all young moms have and how they can be met. Needs such as the need to be appreciated, the need to know your life is not at a dead end, and the need to be loved.

Life Interrupted by Tricia Goyer is full of excellent advice for the teenage mom. It addresses, in a kind and encouraging way, the problems faced in a teen pregnancy. Goyer gives young mothers instruction in meeting and overcoming the challenges of isolation, hurt, disapproval, and damaged family relationships.
She primarily deals with unplanned teen pregnancy, yet the author gives advice that any young mother could benefit from: how to get help; how to find your identity; how to heal relationships; how to grow as a person; how to pursue your dreams; how to discipline and show love to your child; how to find hope in a situation that seems hopeless.
Goyer gives this down to earth advice in readable chunks. Each chapter ends with a short assignment to help women sort through their situations and emotions and inspire growth and resolution. For example, one chapter has the reader answer short questions to determine what her hopes and dreams are.
Life Interrupted contains quotes from teen moms about how they feel, what they experience, and how they relate to friends and family. The book addresses the problems many young mothers face from a realistic, never condemning, point of view.
I found that by reading this book I gained sympathy for a teen mom’s predicament, and became aware of ways in which I could reach out and help a teen mom. I was also able to see some of the errors of heart, and presumptions and prejudices that I have unwittingly carried against young moms; in light of that, I would recommend this book to older Christian women as well as women facing teen pregnancy first hand. -- Elece Hollis, Christian Book Previews.com

    As a writer/author/speaker I've had the privilege of speaking to groups of young unwed mothers at homeless shelters and churches. Goyer's book, "Life Interrupted: The Scoop on Being a Young Mom" is the book I'll now be carrying with me. I intimately got a glimpse into these young mothers' lives when one of my three sons wound up as an unwed father and the unwed mommy, carrying my first grandchild, became my "adopted daughter". Goyer's book covered all the topics the challenges of being unwed and pregnant encompasses. I applaud her transparency and "get-real" writing on such a tender subject and am pleased to announce I no longer need her wonderful book in my own children's lives: That special son and now equally special daughter-in-law are now married and thriving with their son--in part because, without knowing it, they followed many of Goyer's suggestions.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Tricia Goyer
Located in: Montana
Submitted: August 13, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I live in Montana with my wonderful husband and three kids that I homeschool. I love to write, and I'm blessed to have three books out this year--one fiction, this non-fiction, and a children's book! I also volunteer at Hope Pregnancy Center, working with teen moms. And I'm the volunteer editor of our local homeschooling newsletter. The question I get more than anything is "How do you do it all?" My answer is: Jesus Christ. I give Him the first few hours of my day and ask Him to guide the remaining hours. He is my wisdom, my strength, my guide. I can do nothing without Him!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  For this project my greatest motivation was the young moms themselves. I work with them on a weekly basis. They remind me of where I used to be as a young mom . . . and how far God has brought me.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that young moms will come away knowing that they CAN be a good mom. They matter! In a world in which young moms are more likely to receive a rude comment than loving affirmation, I want Life Interrupted to be a positive book of hope. Mostly I would like to point young moms to the good news of Jesus!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  In addition to the Bible, I'm also inspired by many Christian authors. Currently, I'm working through the "Experiencing God" Bible Study by Henry Blackaby for the third time. I also love all Robert Benson's books. He has really influenced my focus on daily prayer. Other favorites are Philip Yancy, Beth Moore, and Oswald Chambers.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I have the best family in the world. I had my son, Cory, when I was only seventeen. It was during my pregnancy that I dedicated my life to Jesus. Jesus created beauty from ashes and blessed me with a loving, godly husband and two more kids. If Jesus can transform my life, He can transform anyone's!
