#1 Top Post of All Time
My dear friend Lee-Ann vulnerably shared her store of abortion and the hope and healing she found through Jesus Christ. This post, published in January 2019, has received double the visitors of any other post on this blog. That tells me it’s a subject that needs talking about. There are more women affected by abortion and longing for hope and healing than we realized – even in the Church. (Click the image to read Hope & Healing After Abortion.)

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed interacting with every woman who graciously shared her story for this series. Their commitment to God’s Word is an incredible gift and blessing.
