Don’t Close the Book On Me Yet

By Matthew West

Please enjoy the gift of UNTOLD – a positive, heartfelt call to action around the gift of life and the powerful purpose God has for each and every child, planned or unplanned.

Inspired by the stories of others, this song has a special place in my heart. Having played back-to-back benefit concerts, one for an adoption center and one for a pregnancy center, I found myself reflecting on these incredible organizations and so many other ministries who are truly unsung heroes in giving a voice to ALL of God’s children. I received a thank you letter from one of the centers saying,

“Our staff is praying that God will give you a song to begin to change the hearts of people regarding abortion, the women and men caught in crisis pregnancy, and for ministry to those who have had abortions. It is such a controversial subject but truly it is only God’s love that changes hearts and that is what we want to do, share that love with others. That is what you do so well.”

-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, MCPC – Mid Cities Pregnancy Center

God placed this song on my heart and I pray it will serve to honor and inspire ministries, churches, organizations, and individuals who courageously share hope and life-affirming options to all those in need, along with forgiveness and compassion for those who seek it.

I offer this song to you as a gift and catalyst to invite our communities to come together in a meaningful way to inspire awareness, promote prayer, and save lives.



“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Stories & Resources

When initially sharing UNTOLD, we received tremendous feedback and requests from ministries, centers, and leaders for stories and resources that would allow for thoughtful discussions around the very real and courageous decisions people face.

We hope you’ll take a moment to read these real-life stories, pray over the scripture, reflect on the questions, and explore the resources. Take this opportunity to go beyond the music and into the meaning. May all of us look through a new lens as we support and pray for all those who need love, compassion, and hope, knowing that in all things God works for the good.


Sixteen and pregnant. Two words that, put together, will shake anyone’s world.  Such was the case for Veronica. With every voice you trust telling you that your only option is an abortion, where do find the strength to make a different choice?




It started with a long awaited positive pregnancy test – JOY!  But that joy quickly faded at the very first ultrasound that revealed my baby’s life and my own were in serious danger. How do you choose between your baby’s life and your own, when everyone is telling you that you have to make that choice?




After two abortions and a miscarriage, I wasn’t sure a family of my own would ever be in my future.  Sometimes finding forgiveness within yourself can be the hardest place to look.




A single mom with no support system and faced with a second pregnancy. As I walked through the doors of a place that I thought would help me find the solution to my “problem,” I found a much different answer, but one that brought joy to more than just me.
