Cradle My Heart Today | Denise’s story 9-5-17
Denise Walker says she got the message loud and clear. To be single, black and pregnant was to be a failure. Listen now:
So, she had an abortion and then another before vowing never to do so again.
After completing college, while engaged and ready to marry, her fiancé insisted she abort to protect their financial future.
Her anger afterwards affected every area of her life, and lasted almost two decades until she found healing through a post-abortion Bible study.
Today, Denise channels that righteous anger to helping other women of color see the devastation abortion has wrought. As she puts it, “What the slave ships couldn’t do to us, what slavery itself couldn’t do to us, and what the Ku Klux Klan couldn’t do to us, abortion has accomplished.”
Denise understands and preaches to all women and men how abortion damages everyone involved, and is no respecter of race or religion. But more importantly, she ministers God’s healing mercy to all, freely available to all.
That mercy healed her marriage too, along with the abortion fallout. And now she and her husband work to heal marriages as well.
The theme verse for her abortion recovery outreach at Rich in Mercy is found in Ephesians 2:
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7
