Pastor’s wife shares her abortion story

Cradle My Heart Today | Camille’s story 8-7-17

Camille was a Christian from a Christian home. But, when she got pregnant in high school, her Mom suggested abortion. Listen now:

Camille refused, and had her baby, even though the baby daddy was long gone.

That meant she worked hard and finished school a year early, then started college two weeks after the baby was born.

At 18, Camille was back in love, pregnant again, and engaged. Her world fell apart however, when her new boyfriend sexually assaulted and so violently shook Camille’s daughter that the baby later died.

How could she carry this man’s child?

This time her mother decided abortion was the answer.

The guilt and shame overwhelmed Camille for years until God broke through at a women’s conference with the offer of a healing ministry to resolve the pain of her past.

The trauma of losing her daughter to violence at the hands of someone she loved nearly broke Camille. But God’s word tells us that he binds up the brokenhearted, and this is true even after abortion. He heals. We don’t fully understand this on a rational basis.

But we know it. By faith. And we experience it. By heart.

He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
