Have you been affected by abortion?

Peace and healing are possible.

The Journey to Freedom

The heaviness in her heart lingered for months and then years. No one mentioned the emotional pain that comes with an abortion.

She looked for ways to deal with the hurt but all fell short, and many led to darker places.

Then one day the woman heard about a retreat for those struggling with past abortions. It was a weekend filled with support, love and acceptance.

There she found healing she didn’t think was possible. She felt whole again – like a new person. Over time she was even able to help others dealing with the same pain.

Many people, myself included, have taken a similar journey. Maybe it can be yours too.

You deserve to live a life free from shame and guilt. Take your first step today and please contact us to learn more. We are here for you.

"He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."

Colossians 1:13-14


I had carried my shame from my abortion for 10 years. The Lord set me free from my shame during my retreat and since then, my love for Him has grown deeper and deeper. I am forever changed by this ministry and I am honored to serve other women and men that also carry the sin of abortion. Seeing the Lord free His sons and daughters never ceases to amaze me!


After participating in the abortion of my first child, an extreme sense of failure and a heavy load of guilt descended on me. I asked God to forgive me and knew He had forgiven me because of Jesus Christ. Attending a retreat helped to heal the wound of abortion and allowed me to walk in the fullness of the Father’s forgiveness.


It was at the time of my abortion I realized how my life was spiraling out of control. I hated the person I had become. Years later at a Deeper Still retreat I found my identity in Christ and embraced the healing and restoration He had for me. It changed my life forever and now I walk in His freedom.
