“Mom, I don’t know how to tell you this, but ________________.”
What is the greatest fear parents have that will be dropped into that blank? “I’m pregnant.” “I’ve had an abortion.” “I’m gay.” “I’m depressed.” Avoiding the Truth is a 5 chapter eBook designed to give those involved with students, parents, and faith-based ministries the truth about where we are, how we got here, and a map for where we would like to be.
