I think had she had this she would have made wiser decisions for herself and her son. This book is a wonderful
blend of stories, resources, and pragmatic advice. The layout makes it easy to read and the chapter topics are
relevant to today's teens. I believe this book is not only for the moms who get pregnant, but for every teenaged
girl. Tricia Goyer has done a marvelous job of creating a resource that needs to be in every school in America as
well every church.
This book is refreshing, smart and very, very useful.
The thing that disturbs me about the book however, are reviews like the one from Lori in Waterloo on Amazon. com. She says this:
This book contains plagarized information, exploiting the struggles of the very mothers it offers to support. Very unethical which suggests that it is very unChristian.
I wrote to the author and asked her about this. She is very upset that someone would slander her like this, because she has obtained permission from everyone's work she uses in the book. But mostly she's worried that this book won't get to where it needs to be because of some odd jealous paranoia from a few.
Once I recieved the information from the author and have no reason to doubt her as she is a credial writer with great references (and needless to say her publisher and MOPS are no strangers to the legalities of the business) I have no qualms about the five star rating and the high recommendation I am giving it as well.
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.
<I>Life Interrupted</i> 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. <b>-- Elece Hollis, Christian Book Previews.com</b>
