Litfuse Blog Tours Pressents: Cradle My Heart: Finding God's Love After Abortion by Kim Ketola
* 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.
Kim Ketola is a sought-after writer and motivational speaker with the Ruth Graham and Friends conference. After thirty years in the broadcasting industry, she founded a nonprofit organization through which she presents professionally accredited conferences to equip counselors and help individuals recover from the emotional and spiritual wounds of abortion.

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 found this book to be a compelling read. I kept finding "a sin, is a sin"...God doesn't place one sin above the other...we do. A very comforting book for someone in the remorseful pain of having had an abortion. Finding forgiveness, and forgiving oneself, an especially hard thing to do. Cradle My Heart offers so much, there are so many wonderful uses of scripture to fit, and ways to minister to those in pain. I am going to offer my book to my Pastor so that he can share it with someone in need. This is a beautifully written and timely book, written to help those who are having a hard time with this sin. Satan has gotten a big foothold in our country, and Woman in crisis are easily led. Thank you Kim Ketola for writing and making this book available! I received this book Litfuse Publicity Tours, and the Publisher Kregel, and was not required to give a positive review
