ABBOTSFORD, WI, March 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- What would cause an author to support giving away 5,000 copies of her own book through personal donations and by declining all royalty payments? These aren't just any books - they share the author's message of hope, encouragement and truth for women facing the fears of an unplanned pregnancy. These books are being offered free as an outreach effort to save lives by Elizabeth Ministry International working in conjunction with Christian author and pro-life speaker, Sheila M. Luck, and her publisher, Life Sentence Publishing.
Jeannie Hannemann, Founder and Executive Director of Elizabeth Ministry International, explains, "Our ministry is based on the visitation story of Mary and Elizabeth in Luke's Gospel, in which the sanctity of life and power of the Holy Spirit is revealed in the common sharing between these two women. Following their example, Elizabeth Ministry seeks to provide insight and support through people willing to share their personal experiences."
Jeannie further explains, "In this ministry, it's important to never underestimate the power of a single conversation; but we can't be everywhere all the time. That's why when Sheila Luck approached us with the opportunity to acquire 5000 copies of her book, My Baby's Feet: Choice, Death and the Aftermath, to be given away to women facing an unplanned pregnancy, we were eager to make her book available."
Through My Baby's Feet, Sheila shares her personal experience of an unplanned pregnancy at age seventeen, abortion, and her life in the aftermath. She provides an empathetic message for all women confronting the many fears that naturally arise when facing an unplanned pregnancy. Through her story, the truth about abortion is told: abortion's not the easy choice; it's not the simplest answer; it ends the life of a pre-born baby; and it can seriously impact the emotional well-being of the mother. Additionally, for those that may have chosen abortion, Sheila provides a message of hope and healing.
Because she can't be speak personally with every woman struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, Sheila hopes her book will encourage others to make a living choice. She believes, if you save the life of the baby, you also save the life of the mother.
Elizabeth Ministry will give away 5000 copies of My Baby's Feet to women facing an unplanned pregnancy by gifting the books to pregnancy centers nationwide. They will start with a booth at the Heartbeat International annual convention in Dallas, TX, in April 2013. Thereafter, they will send the books to all pregnancy centers who request them, for the cost of shipping and handling, while supplies last.
