Now, that I’ve shared my testimony with you, I’d like to offer you links to resources for those of you who have ever struggled with addictions, depression, unexpected or unwanted pregnancy, etc.
Please remember that your local church should offer counseling services and if they don’t, they should be able to point you in the right direction. If you’re in search of a Crisis Pregnancy center or shelters be sure to check out Lifecall Resources which has names, addresses, and contact information by state.
