On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “How I Found God Through My Abortion Journey,” we’re talking with Cynthia Wenz, the founder of Healed for Life Ministries, which ministers to those in the post-abortive community in need of healing.
Cynthia has also had to find healing in the aftermath of her own abortions, experienced at points in her life when she was vulnerable, afraid, and believed she had no other options. During her third, she experienced what she considers miraculous events which culminated in her spiritual rebirth and a determination to do whatever she could to survive as a single mom with a new baby.
She now represents all the girls and women who are victimized by a society that glorifies free sexuality without consequences, and then hurries them toward abortion to “fix” their mistakes. Today Cynthia believes that had she fully been aware that life was growing inside of her body and learned the consequences of abortion, she may have chosen to save her lost children.
Hear her remarkable story on “How I Found God Through My Abortion Journey.” This program isn’t graphic, but it’s probably not suitable for younger children, so please use your discretion and occupy your kids elsewhere, or listen later on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or take us with you on our free phone app.
Cynthia Wenz’ book Healed for Life: A Story of Redemption is available for a gift of any amount. Visit our website for more information.
Cynthia also provides consulting and developmental support to pregnancy medical centers throughout the USA. She served as president and CEO of Care Net Pregnancy Center in Houston from 2009-2017.
This program touches on a number of issues along the way that may feel tender for you. If so, I want you to know that Focus on the Family has a caring Christian team of counselors, and it would be their privilege to offer you a free consultation. Call us, leave your name and number, and they’ll get back with you just as soon as possible. The number during business hours is 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
Before I close, one of the best things you can do to support life is to participate in our Option Ultrasound program. Abortion clinics are interested in abortion. Pregnancy resource centers are interested in the woman, the man, the baby, the family. They minister to everyone involved.
Focus supports these centers through our Option Ultrasound program, which provides grants for sonogram training and technology. To date, more than 800 ultrasound machines have been placed around the country, and more than 470,000 babies have been saved.
We’re working hard to raise that number to one million babies saved sometime in the near future. With that in mind, I’d like to extend an invitation for you to become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. What’s amazing is that it only takes $60 to save a baby’s life by providing ultrasound machines and additional resources.
You might also be interested in Wait No More, our foster and adoption effort here at Focus. Over 3,500 families have started that process, usually adopting more than one child.
Thank you for touching others with the love of Christ.
