A Surrendered Life

As a new Christian at age 30, Pat Layton’s eyes were opened to a secret from her past she had long kept pushed down—the devastating emotional and spiritual effects of an abortion when she was 23 years old. In A Surrendered Life, Pat takes readers on her personal journey through unearthing that secret, finding help in God’s word, forgiveness in Christ and offering hope to those similarly affected by abortion. A Surrendered Life offers eight practical, biblically based steps for post-abortion recovery.

Speaker, author and ministry leader, Pat Layton writes for newspapers, blogs, newsletters and ministry media, including Lifeway, Focus on the Family and Proverbs 31 Ministries. Layton founded and leads Life Impact Network and hosts Imagine Me . . . Set Free women’s conferences at churches and other locations nationwide. A member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, she served on the Florida Governor’s Media Service Review Team for the Abstinence Education Plan and Governor’s Partnership for Adoption. The Florida House of Representatives recognized Layton with the Promise of Excellence award.
