A story of  healing and freedom

I know that with my support, guidance , you are fully capable to find freedom, and I know that with my support and guidance rooted in Biblical truths, and other women walking this journey alongside you while enveloped in empathy, love, compassion and understanding - you are fully capable to find healing and freedom.

Before I stepped into a life of healing and hope, I spent a lot of time just thinking about it. Wishful thinking mixed with faith, the Bible, a lot of self help books, women conferences and seminars - nothing helped. 

But then something happened that rocked me to my very core. And maybe you can relate to this…

One day it seemed like everything was fine. I was chasing purpose that always seem close but was ever evading me. Then suddenly I had a dream about my aborted child and without any warning whatsoever, I spiraled into deep grief over a child that I never met. 


Problem was, I had a hidden heart issue. I had an abortion-wounded heart. I really wasn’t sure what I needed but I knew that I needed help. Oh sure, of course I prayed, fasted, read the Bible. All of my Christian mandates were stacking up in the hard drive of my mind but my heart was wounded and my voice was silenced by shame, guilt and fear of judgement. 

I can’t even begin to tell you how this unexpected shocked me. It really was the proverbial wake up call. Because suddenly I realized I had to heal, or I was going to remain in the shadows of regret, lonliness and struggling with anxiety and clinical depression.


You can bet I got serious really quick. I stopped messing around. I stopped dabbling. And I started a journey that began with me trusting my heart to those that understood and had the tools of healing and hope that I needed.

I wanted to run to the church but most churches do not have a program to help women deal with the trauma of abortion. There is just too much spiritual nastiness around the subject.


I know your pain. I've been where you've been, hiding in the shadows of shame and guilt guarding your secret without the courage for a voice to speak to it but  I've also sought healing and gained understanding on how to move forward. I will 100% walk the road along side you. 

I went from shackled to shame to walking in healing and freedom to boldly walk in the purpose that God created me for. It wasn’t always easy. But I did it. And you can too.

This is the time when you have to stand up and say, “enough is enough.” Today is the day when you can decide to change your life for the better by reclaiming your hope, and discovering the life that you were created for.

You're here because you were meant to be

"There are times when I want to just tell someone about my abortion experience but I am afraid that they will judge me."

"When bad things happen to me I feel like I am being punished by a decision I made in my past - and that I deserve the pain."

"I never thought that I would find myself here, humiliated by something that nobody even knows?

"I feel like I am hiding in my own life isolated and choked by fear and shame unable to speak or share."

Had enough of feeling like this?

"I just wish I could talk to someone who knows how I feel and understand the pain, shame and guilt. I feel stigmatized and alone"

"My life is almost unrecognizable. I am connected to  a community where I feel wrapped in empathy, love and forgiveness."

"My self worth and identity is no longer rooted in a decision of my past. I am not my choice." 

"I matter and I am living the life I was meant to live - full of purpose and meaning."

"My abortion wounded heart is healed and I am free to be the best version of myself - spirit, soul and body." 

And you
want this...

Then Hearts Unshackled
Private Facebook Group is for you
