When a women receives an unexpected positive pregnancy test, abortion often seems like the best or only option for a fulfilling future.  Unplanned Grace beautifully challenges that myth, equipping readers to support abortion-vulnerable women with love that values life in every way.

Writing for the nonprofit organization Save the Storks, Natasha and Brittany draw on personal interviews, inspiring stories, and eye-opening facts to help readers understand:
  • How economics, relationships, and health affect a woman's pregnancy decision
  • The value of having empathy for women facing unplanned pregnancies
  • The enormous potential churches have to support women in crisis
Writing not just from a "pro-birth" perspective but from a "pro-abundant life" prospective, Unplanned Grace is an ideal resource for churches and individuals who want to make a difference in the pro-life movement.
