Courageous tells the heartwarming stories of young people who have ordinary, messy lives, yet have done extraordinary things. You know the people in this book – they are your classmates, your co-workers, friends, and even family members. They are the heroes who aren’t praised on the front pages of newspapers or during the evening news – yet that is precisely why you must read about their stories.
In this book, you’ll read about Steve, an ordinary guy who just went to a rock concert that changed his world view and ended up facing a recall election as student body president because he refused to back down from his pro-life beliefs. You will read about Melissa, a woman who survived unimaginable abuse at home and ended up living with nuns to escape her father, who forcibly aborted her siblings and had wanted her to succumb to the same fate. You will read about Julia, a girl who knows no fear and reaches out to women every day at abortion facilities, always offering help and the option to choose life. You will read about Amanda and Andrea, courageous birth mothers who placed their babies with adoptive parents. And you will read about Rebekah, a young girl who was raped and courageously chose life for her son.
