The major feature film Unplanned explores Abby Johnson’s journey from Planned Parenthood clinic director to pro-life advocate. Her compelling story is an emotional roller coaster for many women and men whose lives have been affected by abortion. Post-abortion trauma crosses all socio-economic, racial, cultural, and religious boundaries. Many women who chose abortion suffer silently in the aftermath, unaware of the far-reaching effects this decision has triggered in their lives. Others hide their shame and guilt behind a facade, afraid to acknowledge their painful emotions from such a traumatic experience. They struggle to believe God could ever forgive them and question their ability to be a good partner or parent.

As a companion devotional to the movie, Planned from the Start reveals five core areas of emotional turmoil often faced following abortion—emotions that trap women and men in the prison of pain that abortion has brought into their lives and into the lives of those who love them.

But where trauma inflicts devastating pain, God extends abundant grace. Filled with moments for reflection and personal stories from those who have experienced their own journeys of trauma and redemption, this interactive devotional invites readers to begin healing from the pain of post-abortion trauma to freedom and wholeness.

Meet the Publisher

I've been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.

I'm glad you're here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
