Let’s talk about the true healing of our hearts after abortion

Cynthia Ruchti had a simple revelation that led to her new book Tattered and Mended: the Art of Healing the Wounded Soul. As she sat to write she was struck with this truth:

People are tattered. Some say, “Then let’s make tattered fashionable.”

But God invites us to mend.

What a powerful message for those of us hurt by abortion. Over and over I’ve heard women and men say that they would do anything if they could just undo that day.

What if you didn’t have to? What if God began, that very day, working out a perfect plan for something totally new that was being fashioned from the heartbreak you went through?

Cynthia began curating images of sashiko and boro mending stiches used in Japan to re-fashion torn fabric. Just viewing her pinterest board of these delicate yet strong stitches is a healing moment.

From Cynthia’s bio:

Cynthia Ruchti tells stories hemmed in Hope through her novels, novellas, devotions, and nonfiction, and through speaking for women’s events/retreats and writers’ conferences/workshops.
