"Cradle My Heart" by Kim Ketola

Abortion is one of the toughest topics people can discuss. Whatever side one is on, they probably know someone who has regret and remorse for the abortion. In this book, Kim Ketola lets readers see her heart break and healing, and she invites others to join her in the healing waters.

Millions of abortions have been performed, leaving many of these women and young girls traumatized with no where to turn when facing the emotional aftermath. Kim Ketola knows the pain and the agony of not thinking God was there anymore. That He wouldn't ever forgive her. But she found that healing and in this book, uses Scripture to show how much God loves us. His healing and forgiveness are available to all who ask. She also shares where to find answers to questions like: "Does God hate me?" "Is this a sin I can't have forgiven?" "Where can I find comfort and hope?" If you are looking for answers to questions like these, or know someone who is, this book is for you.

I love the title of this book. It speaks of the caring and concern of a parent, and our parent is God. While I haven't experienced the pain and loss of abortion, I have known those who have. This book will not only speak to those women, but to those who counsel them as well. I received my free review copy from Litfuse for an honest review and participation in the blog tour.
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."
