Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Theresa Bonopartis Sunday June 30 at 9 pm ET
[UPDATE: podcast posted 7-1-13]
If there is a more generous and diligent worker in the field of postabortion ministry than Theresa Bonopartis, I haven’t met him or her yet.
I first met Theresa in 2003 when I answered God’s call and founded a ministry in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area called Tell Them I Love Them. We presented postabortion healing conferences and produced a short radio and online feature called Life Redeemed. Theresa reached out to me from her home base in New York to offer support and encouragement. It was a lovely gesture and one I will never forget. Although I love this work of watching hope dawn, it is often difficult and lonely. Some weeks on the radio broadcast we don’t get phone calls and it’s tempting to think the message is falling on deaf ears. Theresa’s faithfulness reminds me we are called to proclaim God’s healing love–and leave all the results in his hands. She and I share a common hope in the infinite power of healing and renewal in our Lord Jesus Christ–healing and hope available right now for you.
Bonopartis is involved in post abortion work in many different capacities, most recently as the Director of Lumina/Hope & Healing after Abortion, a post abortion ministry which conducts retreats for women, men, siblings and those who aborted because of an adverse diagnosis.
Lumina also provides trainings for clergy members and mental health professionals in post abortion stress. In addition, Lumina has created a network of women and men who have walked through the pain of abortion who are also ready to accompany you through the darkness, into the joy of a renewed life.
Theresa is active in the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and Operation Outcry, both of whom speak out about their abortion experiences to educate and in hope of getting others to come forward for healing.
