Dating someone who has had an abortion
My heart broke for this couple who obviously truly loved one another.
She desired a marriage based on truth and love enough to place her trust in God by sharing her abortion experience.
After an agonizing day, spent crying on my couch with a few of my closest friends, I woke up the next morning feeling clarity, knowing that I was going to have an abortion.

To love and not count the cost, knowing we are all sinners in need of his mercy.
On the flip side, I have seen many women and men joined in truth after the abortion was revealed.
I have watched them as they work through the issues.
Mostly, I have been blessed to watch them grow in the love of God.
‘If God Forgave You, So Can I’ Perhaps the simplest and most beautiful example was a recent call I received from one of the women in our Entering Canaan ministry.
I have seen the beauty of spouses attending our retreats and spiritually adopting the aborted child as their own.
