Book Review: Cradle My Heart

About the Book:

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.

Hope...this is something that we all need and at many different times in our lives it may feel as you have lost all of your own.  Kim, takes the reader on a journey that is a very touchy subject no matter if you are relgious or not.  When it comes to abortion everyone has an opinion and if you are a spiritual women who has had one sometimes you need someone to listen and give you hope and not preach at you.  Cradle My Heart, does just that it is a place that a spiritual woman can turn to when for whatever reason you are brought into a situation where abortion is involved.

I personally have never been in this situation, but I do have friends that have an I am glad to know that in the future there is a book like this one I am able to get.  I may not know what to do or say, but at least this book can make me feel as though I am helping my friend in their time of need.  No matter the situation we all need some place to turn to and I am soo thankful that Kim has written this book for the "8-10 million Christian" woman and for all of those who may not be but this Hope.

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."
