Surprise Child: Finding Hope in Unexpected PregnancyLeslie Leyland Fields3 Stars Out Of 5 1 ReviewsSave 10%
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 moms 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

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!
