I recently had the joy of presenting two workshops on the spiritual healing of abortion at the 2017 Life Matters Worldwide Summit. The event is an annual gathering for equipping and engaging those working in the pregnancy help movement. What was so exciting to me as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that the focus was on the power of that gospel to save and transform lives.
My book Cradle My Heart, Finding God’s Love After Abortion, is a biblical resource for spiritual healing after abortion. That means we look to God’s word for our answers to the many challenges abortion presents to growing in faith. And it’s also true that God’s word is sufficient to help meet the many challenges of unintended pregnancy to prevent women having to choose abortion in the first place. Pregnancy centers offer tangible, practical help to implement that truth.
It was refreshing to be among so many like-minded believers, and to be welcomed by Life Matters Worldwide President Tom Lothamer. He joins us this week on Cradle My Heart Radio to recap this year’s Summit, and talk about the international reach of LMW, and his inspiration for the work he’s been called to do for decades in pregnancy care ministry.
