Abortion continues to be a hot topic in politics, women’s rights, and medical practice. But for the eight to ten million American Christian women who have had one, abortion is a spiritual issue as well, raising questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss.
God’s love is not a casualty of abortion. Abortion raises questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss. You may be asking: Does God hate me? Can I be forgiven? Is it really possible to just start over with God?
Kim Ketola asked these questions as well. In Cradle My Heart, she lays out a compassionate path toward spiritual healing. You will learn how to:
* Face yourself and face God
* Forgive and be forgiven
* Repent and accept God’s love
* Grieve and find an end to sorrow
With an understanding and empathetic voice, Kim Ketola exposes the hurt in your heart, reveals the healing in God’s heart, and brings the two together to create a whole heart where restoration–and celebration–are possible.
