Lisa McBain found out she was pregnant at 16. The father, her boyfriend, didn’t want anything to do with a baby. “All he wanted was an abortion,” she said in a recent video posted by Hillside Church in Bloomington, Minnesota. But God intervened and saved Lisa from doing something she would regret. “You know, the world wants to tell you that you can’t do it and all these excuses why it would never work out.” She chose life for her baby.

Her son grew up to become a hockey player and ended up playing in the NHL. “Jamie is such a sweet, sweet boy,” Lisa said. “Always was. … he’s just brought so much joy. He’s just so special. … Children are truly a blessing from the Lord.”

Watch Lisa talk about God’s provision and blessings as she chose to keep her baby boy.
