Cradle My Heart

{My Review}

Even though I have never been pregnant or had an abortion I thought that this was a very good book. Kim Ketola shares the love and hope of Jesus through her book. I thought that some of the information and exercises provided could be healing and helpful for people struggling with other issues in life besides abortion. I liked the fact that Kim Ketola was open that she had an abortion and talked about her feelings; I think that it will make women who have had an abortion more receptive to the book and its contents because Ketola is being so honest and doesn’t seem hypocritical.

I received a complimentary copy of Cradle My Heart in exchange for my honest review.

CRADLE MY HEART BY KIM KETOLA | BLOG TOUR AND WOMEN REDEEMED LIVE WEBCAST EVENT {9/20}

Welcome to the blog tour for Cradle My Heart. Kim’s tender book about “finding God’s love after abortion” is a much needed resource. Here are just some of the staggering statistics about abortion:

* It is estimated that 13% of abortions are performed on self-described ‘born again’ or evangelical Christians
* The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) reports that 46% of aborting women identify themselves as Protestant and an additional 27% identify themselves as Catholic. If true, these statistics reveal that more than 70% of all abortions in the United States are performed on Christian women.
* 85% of women say abortions cause mental health issues, including sorry, sadness, guilt, regret, grief, and disappointment

{Live Webcast Event}

In coordination with the launch of their fall releases, Kregel will be hosting a live webcast event on September 20 at 8 PM EDT featuring authors Kim Ketola (Cradle My Heart)Teske Drake (Hope for Today, Promises for Tomorrow), and Dawn Scott Jones (When a Woman You Love Was Abused). The webcast will allow women to come together to share their struggles and fears in order to move toward healing and hope. Women will able to support one another and discuss shared experiences in a non-threatening, open and loving environment.

Cat Hoort of Kregel says, “”We are seeking to provide safe means for Christian women to be vulnerable with each other, to seek help and guidance from authors and counselors, and to find encouragement from those who have shared similar experiences. Our hope is that the Women Redeemed webcast will become a forum for hurting women as well as for those who can help. Kim, Teske, and Dawn are all survivors and their stories will surely inspire and equip other women to move toward healing and hope.”

I want to recommend Cradle My Heart to you. In working with the pro-life movement, I have seen the incredible need for a book such as this one. Kim graciously communicates the love and hope Jesus brings to hearts wounded by abortion. May God continue to bless and lead your ministry, Kim! Rebecca St. James, singer, author, actress

A compelling, powerful, honest account of accepting forgiveness and experiencing the miraculous, healing power of God. A powerful reminder that God wants to redeem pain in our lives and use it for his glory. —Dr. Wess Stafford, president and CEO of Compassion International, and author of Too Small to Ignore and Just a Minute

For the one who’s had an abortion, this book can help them realize that God still loves them and that there’s no sin that’s unforgivable. God’s waiting with open arms. This book is a must read for those who have struggled by the loss of abortion. While the Bible doesn’t specifically speak of abortion, Ketola modernizes biblical stories of hope, healing, and forgiveness in Christ. — Ruth O’Neill, CBA Retailers + Resources

More about Cradle My Heart}

Abortion continues to be a hot topic in politics, women’s rights, and medical practice. But for the eight to ten million American Christian women who have had one, abortion is a spiritual issue as well, raising questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss.

Writing from her own experience, Kim Ketola sheds light on one of the darkest and most neglected personal issues of our time: the widespread need for healing and spiritual recovery after abortion. “After abortion brought the worst trouble into my life I had ever known,” writes Ketola, “I just couldn’t see my way free to believe in God’s love.”

With a compassionate heart, Ketola offers ten true stories of healing promise from the Bible to help women answer the most common spiritual torments they face: Is abortion a sin? Does God hate me? Where can I turn in my shame and distress? How could I ever tell anyone the truth? And more.

Inspired by Romans 6:4–“just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life”–this is a definitive resource to help women see themselves and God anew and–finally–to find spiritual healing.
