Publisher's Description

When going through a personal struggle, there's no better help than to receive hope from someone who once stood where you are standing now. For the single teenage girl with an unplanned pregnancy, A Bump in Life gathers story after inspiring story of brave young moms who managed to grow in grace and wisdom as an unexpected new life grew inside of them.

There's Amy, the Christian girl who could not face her parents but fainted at the abortion clinic just in time to stop the procedure from happening that day (or ever). Jayd could not raise her baby, but she was determined to bless the adoptive parents with a special dedication ceremony honoring their new family.

Tasha was two weeks old when her mom left -- and seventeen years later was pregnant with twins of her own. She broke the cycle of abandonment and is a great mom today. Taylor grew up without a father and felt a need to be validated by men. As a high school junior she became pregnant after a first date only to have the guy change his phone number and disappear – but she gave birth to a baby girl that has stolen her heart.

Overflowing with encouragement, A Bump in Life will help anyone going through or connected with this situation move from feelings of loneliness, shame, and worry to the far more lasting joy that is God’s redemptive blessing of a child.

Author Bio

Amy Ford is president of Embrace Grace, Inc., providing emotional, practical, and spiritual support for single young girls who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy. Once in that situation herself, she now lives with her husband and four children in Arlington, Texas.


Editorial Reviews

There is nothing as truly wonderful as finding out you’re pregnant unless the timing feels off. Of all the options available to pregnant women facing hardships, the choice to give birth requires the most courage. At Gateway Church, we put a big emphasis on helping single-parent families, and we are so proud of what Amy Ford has done with Embrace Grace.

In A Bump in Life, Amy shares her insights along with the courageous stories of women who chose life when they discovered they were pregnant. Their stories will inspire and encourage you.

"My mom was encouraged to abort her first baby due to major health concerns, she chose life. I am glad she did cause I wouldn’t have been able to be born and live out the calling God has on my life. Wherever you find your story- hold onto Jesus and trust that He’ll walk you through this season because the little life inside of you wants to impact this world for Jesus. ’A Bump in Life’ will give you hope to walk this out!"

"As I read the heart-wrenching stories in A Bump in Life of these young women who are faced with an unplanned pregnancy, my heart is even more stirred to tell the world abortion is not an option.  I applaud Amy Ford and the work she is doing with Embrace Grace.  This book will be a tool to penetrate the darkness and light the pathway for young women to experience God’s beautiful peace and restoration."

"While the rest of the culture argues, postures and politicizes, Amy Ford just practically and powerfully demonstrates love to hurting and confused girls. I love this, and so I love this book. Like the blind man who says, "all I know was I was once blind and now I see,"Amy, in her book, gives girls a chance to say the same. I was once alone, now I have family. I was once afraid, now I am confident. I was once confused, now I know how to make it through. We need more Amy Ford’s in the world."

"For many of us, some of the greatest blessings of our lives began with an "Oh no!" moment. What we thought was the end of something was in fact the birth of a new beginning.  So it was for Amy Ford and the countless young women she has walked through an unplanned pregnancy.  Having had a front row seat to the birth of Embrace Grace, I can say with certainty that Amy is truly a Titus 2 woman. She offers a young and inexperienced mom her wisdom, encouragement and love.  As you read A Bump in Life, you sit in the shoes of many of those young women and experience the power of acceptance over judgment, hope over despair and life over death.  Amy’s story, her heart to serve, and her willingness to pay the price to help another gives me hope – hope for these babies, hope for these women and hope for the Church." 
Jan Greenwood

"Great lessons are learned when we go from a breakdown into a breakthrough. A Bump in Life gives incredible pictures of precious lives that were on the verge of a breakdown and shows how they kept walking toward their redemptive breakthrough. The stories are real. Each page holds within it such truth that God will never leave us no matter what our situation. As you read each story, you can see, not only did Amy’s ministry help these girls to know Jesus, but they helped them walk with Him. Their testimonies ring true with clarity and should give every reader renewed hope, that, even though we may have bumps in life, God turns every situation that seems hopeless into a beautiful blessing!"

"I picked up A Bump in Life intending to just start a chapter, but as I read I couldn’t put it down.  As a woman who found herself pregnant and unmarried, I wish I had chosen life as these brave women in the stories have. Story after story stirred my heart and reminded me of God’s goodness. Amy Ford unveils lives that inspire each of us to embrace grace, even in the hardest of circumstances."
