Help for Teen Mothers


Every year almost one million girls from ages 13-18 give birth to a child in the US. Do you happen to know one of these young women? Perhaps you know more than one. If so, I wanted to let you know of some FREE stuff that can help.

First of all, I have a FREE curriculum for people who are interested in gathering young women together for support and encouragement. You can download it and make as many copies as you need. It gives you ideas for either weekly or bi-monthly meetings: http://www.triciagoyer.com/cmsdocuments/LifeInterruptedDG.pdf

You can also find out more information for starting a group at: www.MOPS.org/teen MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) provides many resources--many of them FREE to the young moms.

If you aren't interested in starting a group, but you know a pregnant or parenting girl, consider buying her a copy of Life Interrupted: The Scoop on Being a Young Mom. I also have a new book for teen girls, My Life, Unscripted. It would be a great resource to help a young women SCRIPT better choices for her future. My Life, Unscripted has discussion questions in the back--perfect for a group setting or individual reflection. You can find both at: http://www.triciagoyer.com/

There is one more way you can get FREE books into the hands of young women. Consider asking local churches and Christian businesses to "sponser" a book. This which means they buy a book, write a message in the front, and donated it to the your group or to the young women you know. It connects those who want to give with those who need the help and encouragement.
