Life — It CAN Be Messy…
It can also be beautiful… Pregnant at fifteen-years-old, and choosing to keep her child, Laura Lynn Hughes, knew that her life would never be the same. Through her compelling story and the stories of others — parents struggling with miscarriage, infertility, abusive relationships, addictions, abortions, and those mourning the children they placed for adoption — we witness beauty and redemption rising from the ashes of lost hope.
Choose Zoe: A Story of Un-Planned parenthood and the Case for Life (Red Arrow Media, September 4, 2018) tells Laura’s testimonial of how her unplanned pregnancy turned out to be a beautiful gift from God and embedded the pro-life cause deep within her heart.
Laura’s book is centered around the Greek word, Zoe, which means Life, and it refers to the abundant life Jesus came to give us, referenced in John 10:10. Choose Zoe helps readers to choose hope in the face of despair while living with mercy and compassion, and believing we serve a good God who holds our futures in His hands.
For young mothers, fathers, community leaders, and pastors, Laura’s stories offer practical tools and guidance for an unplanned pregnancy, providing hope, courage, and healing.
