Show Notes

Over 63 million abortions have been performed in the US alone since 1973. That’s a lot of dads who lost fatherhood. Over 22 million men have said they regret their abortion part but have no idea where to go for help. Greg’s passion is helping these men find hope, healing, and a restored relationship with God. Greg carries this message to churches, pastors, mento health leaders, crisis pregnancy centers, and anywhere where the need for healing is recognized. Restoring men who have lost fatherhood to abortion will change the church and the world.

After the publication of Almost Daddy: the Forgotten Story to reach and help men who have lost fatherhood to abortion find hope, healing, and a restored relationship with God, Greg launched a ministry to reach and help men who have experienced his story. Greg has published over 300 stories in newspapers and magazines and talked to thousands of people about recovery and healing. Almost Daddy: The Forgotten Story now has a small group study guide. Greg lives in Central Indiana with his wife of 32 years, Stacey. Together they have four grown sons and three grandchildren.

Let’s look at some data:

  • One in five men in this country experience the pain of abortion with their partner.
  • 83% of men in these situations would benefit from help.
  • 79% of these men will seek help if they know where to go for help.
  • The hard statistic is that only 7% of men say would go to a clergy for help.

What is the message? God loves each of us regardless of our background, mistakes, and things that may come our way from the choices of others. There is no situation in which God cannot offer forgiveness. If we ask for forgiveness – God forgives. Period!! Many times the challenge is the shame that the enemy throws at us to keep us from living in victory and seeing ourselves as God sees us. We need each other to help us move forward in victory. If you find yourself in this situation – reach out for help. If you do not know who to reach out to, then reach out to our guest: Greg Mayo.
