We were kids. She was 17 and I was 19. She was finishing high school and I was transferring to a major university – and then – she shared with me, she was pregnant.
What do I do? Where do I go? Who do I talk to?
As a young man I was clueless and as a young woman Heidi was fearful. Together we mustered our way through the situation to raise our first child – and today – we have 10 children and 3 grandchildren.
Yet what about the other 2.5M kids between the ages of 15-24 who face this on their own each year? What about them? How do they handle the situation and what’s the outcome?
Sadly, more than 97% of kids facing unexpected pregnancy will face it alone and never seek help from their family – even their own family church.
That’s where you’ll find Heidi and I together as a couple today.
We’re leading the Body of Christ to have a prepared answer for the hope that they have, to reconcile their personal story and to lead young people to build Godly families by encouraging men and women to choose life during an unexpected pregnancy and develop their families as followers of Christ.
The reason? Simple. We’ve learned a Father’s Great Love Changes Everything.
