From the Author
Working on Cradle My Heart was a spiritual journey in itself--separate from the healing journey outlined in the the book. I really wanted to tell the stories of people who encountered Jesus and walked away healed. The Bible accounts don't provide a lot of detail in many cases, but I can vividly picture these people and I wanted to paint them as portraits of hope.
I'm also humbled to have known the women whose stories appear here representing the many challenges to spiritual growth after abortion. The telling comments they made speak volumes. They too represent illustrations of the healing mercy of Jesus Christ which is so real in our world today.
He is the way, the truth and the life to help us out of the pain of abortion and into a new life now.
