Karen Black Mercer presents her best-selling pro-life memoir Only If God Says So!: Finding the Courage to Protect Life in a Pro-Choice World

Karen wrote Only If God Says So! to encourage her readers to believe that what God has done for her (calling her to a worthy cause and a ministry that serves Him), He can do for them.

At the risk of being beaten and jailed, Karen Black Mercer places herself between expectant women and abortionists, determined to fight for the unborn. This compelling Christian memoir of a once-timid woman’s call to march into the physical and spiritual battle against abortion presents an unflinching firsthand account of one of our country’s darkest realities. As her persistent stand for righteousness results in numerous imprisonments and death threats, Karen’s battle cry becomes, “Only if God says so!” Through it all, the Lord’s great love, power, and faithfulness are clearly demonstrated in Karen’s life. Today, as the Dobbs case comes continually under fire, Only If God Says So! is particularly timely Christian inspiration.

Karen Mercer Black’s Only If God Says So! is available to download for free on Amazon through Saturday, January 28, 2023. Only If God Says So! continues to receive rave reviews! Here’s what some of the reviewers have said:

An incredible journey from fearful timidity to courageous faith

Reviewed in the United States on January 24, 2023

Karen’s memoir is an impressive journey and inspiration on how to overcome fear in the most desperate of circumstances. Guided by the Spirit-given encouragement “Only if God says so!”, she was empowered to face painful separation from her family, arrests, prison, hostile opponents, and even death threats by the mafia as she took an often-solitary stance to love on women and their unborn children, giving them hope for life. A must-read!

5 Stars

Hero of the unborn

This book is a story of determination and obedience in the face of extreme opposition. It is about how God uses an unlikely person who is willing to “die to self” to carry out His purposes to save the lives of thousands of babies. This is the best book I have read in a very long time. You will not want to put it down!
