My Abortion Story – If you missed it earlier this week Haven Today was so gracious to share my abortion testimony on their radio program. The link is to their blog post with my testimony in shortened form (you can read my whole testimony on my blog here) but there is a short clip from the interview on the post and a link to the whole radio interview. Here is the direct link to the full interview here too. Please be in prayer with me that the Lord would be glorified through this testimony of His faithfulness in my life and that many would hear the proclamation of the Gospel and come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
