Be Her Friend

Do you know a struggling young woman or a teen mom? Be her friend.

Take her to coffee. Listen as she shares her heart. Encourage her. Point her to where true love is found … in Jesus.

Tell her to pray for her future husband … it’ll help her to think of what she longs for in a new way. My co-written book Praying for Your Future Husband is for young women who’ve done everything right, and those who haven’t. It offers hope despite wrong choices. You can pre- order it before the May release.

If you know a teen mom … help her on her journey. She needs help, hope, encouragement, advice, and a helping hand. Buy her a copy of Life, Interrupted: The Scoop on Being a Teen Mom. It’ll speak to her heart from someone who’s be there.

Finally, share your story. We’ve all messed up. God has helped us in numerous ways. Speak to her and tell of His goodness. Remind her that someone loves her more than she can imagine, and then give her a hug and tell her you love her, too.

When I was in college I used to take a teen mom and her baby out that I met through work. We became friends but lost touch after that year. Now over 25 years later she found me on facebook, that baby is graduated from college, and mom and i are going to meet next week! (and I'm barely older than her! it seemed such a big age difference back then, but she was 16 and I was only about 20) SO COOL!

This is actually really powerful writing, I felt really engaged the whole time! Do you write fiction?
