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.

Meet Kim: 

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. Kim lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

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."

My Review:

What can I say but God's Love is oh so true, even when you think that he is not there for you, or he does not love you anymore! This book was an awesome living testimony about how God will forgive you for all that you have done and Cradle Your Heart with his compassionate love.  I couldn't put this book down, this book is a must read for everyone, man and woman.  It will help you understand why people turn to abortion, and it will help you understand the devastation that people feel after it all over, the hurt, anger, feeling no love, shame, beat down.  But we serve an awesome and forgiving God, that as long as you come to him he will take all that heaviness from on top of your shoulders.  This is happening everyday, I will be passing this book on to others, because you never know who is going through this right now and needs to hear from the Lord.  I received this book from Liftuse Group for my honest review.

  1. sounds like a wonderful book. So glad this woman is writing about her experience. The most impacting book I read on abortion was Blood Money by Carol Everett. She used to be director of a Planned Parenthood, and then realized what they were doing...she left and changed her life, and now speaks about the truth of abortion. It's an eye-opener book.
