"Parenthood Unplanned will take you on one woman's resilient journey through unplanned pregnancy. The various decisions pregnant women face and the way each of those decisions impacts a woman's heart will be exposed along the way. You will be motivated and equipped to help women connect with life-affirming options and solutions in the face of crisis and be reminded of God's redemption plan for our lives."
— Abby Johnson, Author of "Unplanned" and "The Walls are Talking"
"Sarah is the genuine article—funny, inspiring—she makes you feel like you're sitting in her living room having a girls' night in. You will laugh as you read some of her 'country as cornbread' expressions and stories but, throughout the book, she offers real-world, practical advice for the young woman facing an unplanned pregnancy. If you or someone you know is facing an unplanned pregnancy, buy this book."
