hey there


So many women who face unplanned pregnancies feel like the church is the last place they can go to for help, whether they are afraid of being judged or they feel there will be no support for them.

While the church may be pro-life and has the power to have a huge impact, there has too often been a lack of practical, spiritual, and emotional support for abortion-vulnerable women.

As today’s guest says, “Pro-life is a stance. Pro-love is an action.”

So how can we as the church empower women with unplanned pregnancies? How can we give real help that allows them to choose life?

That’s what I talk about in this episode of SHE with guest Amy Ford.

Amy is the CEO of Embrace Grace, a ministry dedicated to equipping the church to provide support to women experiencing unexpected pregnancies.

Hi, I'm Jordan.
& I'm glad you're here.

I have a huge heart for helping other mamas (and future mamas to-be) naturally support their body, embrace their femininity, and make healthy swaps for their families in a way that works for them and glorifies God (zero perfection required)

My days are spent writing books, hosting the SHE podcast, sharing product recommendations, and creating resources rooted in biblical values to help you do just that.
