Forgiven and Set Free

Forgiven and Set Free

Forgiven and Set Free

By Tracy Lingle, Davenport Volunteer

Although this study was extremely emotional and difficult at times, I learned so much about the effect that my abortion had on my life…Things I never would have considered. I thought I had dealt with my abortion when I became a Christian because I knew God had forgiven me. But...I had never really forgiven myself!

Through this study, I can confidently say that I am forgiven and set free! I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders– a weight I had carried around for over 30 years. I loved the small group and it’s intimacy. I felt safe sharing a story that I was so ashamed of before. Kathy and Luana were both so transparent and kind, and because of this, it made it pretty easy to open up. The other two ladies in our group were awesome as well. To be honest, I was not looking forward to the memorial service but it was probably the most healing part for me-To be able to acknowledge my baby’s life and surrender her publicly to the Lord was freeing.It was a very special time for all of us. Over all, I am very impressed with this program and would recommend it to anyone who has had an abortion. Thank You!!
