Do you feel like your life is “too far gone?” That God can’t make anything of the mistakes you’ve made?
Are you carrying a secret shame in your heart, terrified of the consequences that would ensue if others found out?
Maybe your shame is linked to an abortion, and you’ve decades grieving and carrying it all alone. This episode is especially for you.
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by my friend, Toni McFadden, who is an inspirational woman of God on a mission to lift shame and bring healing to post-abortive women. She humbly shares her story of encountering the redemptive hand of God after a childhood marred by choices she would like to see this next generation handle differently. Our conversation will speak hope into your heart, no matter your journey, and inspire you to step into your story in light of God’s grace, love, forgiveness, and leading. You can get to know Toni at tonimcfadden.com as well as on Instagram.
