One day you’re a typical student. You’re working part-time at McDonald’s to pay for your clothes and car. The next day, you’re a mother-to-be. You’re confused and scared. Emotional and standoffish. You feel like a kid, but now with a huge responsibility. How could your life change so fast? Your youth wasn’t supposed to be packed with worries and obligations, Lamaze classes and daycare choices—and you’ve still got work and school to deal with. Whatever happened to fun, friendships, and dating? You’d do anything for your baby—but what about you? What about your needs? Sharing stories from her own experience as a teenage mom and from other young mothers, Tricia Goyer shows you what to do about meeting nine basic needs that all young moms have. Needs such as the need to be appreciated, the need to know your life is not at a dead end, and the need to be loved. In Life Interrupted, you’ll meet lots of young moms just like you. You’ll also meet God, who cares about you very much.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A incredible book! Tricia Goyer has written a true gem to be treasured. I liked her down-to-earth, simple and straight forward approach to teen parenting. The book goes through different thoughts and emotions, as well as giving good sound advice. Her transparency about her own personal journey as a teen mom offers insight that has the ability to identify with those walking in shoes she has already walked in. The language is very modern and will appeal to today’s generation. I feel this book would be a great resource for anyone who is either pregnant or a mother of young children, whether she is a teen, single, young, or seasoned. Every mom has had a time of struggle with the exact situations and emotions this book is written around. It would also be a great resource for those who have a heart for teen ministry. You will find the last chapter to be a refreshing breath of fresh air. Tricia shares from her heart how she found hope in the midst of her struggling life. This chapter is written in plain and simple language about finding hope in Jesus Christ—amidst your emotional ups and downs, amidst your heartache, amidst your worries and concerns, and amidst your struggle to fit life’s pieces together. This is a book that you will want to share. Get a copy for you and pick up one or more copies and pray that God would lead you to someone who needs the message this book has to offer.
