Healing Choices

Abortion has been a readily available part of our culture since its legalization in 1973. Since then, 60 million abortions have been recorded in our nation, over 3,000 each day. Statistics estimate that 1 out of 3 women of childbearing age have experienced abortion. These are our sisters, mothers, wives, and friends. These women carry an incredible burden of shame and heartache.

Many struggle for years with repressed memories, guilt, shame, and depression.

The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me to bring good news to the humble and afflicted.  He sent me to bind up the wounds of the brokenhearted, to proclaim release from confinement and condemnation to the physical and spiritual captives and freedom to prisoners. – Isaiah 61:1

Life Choices provides an entirely confidential program for post-abortive men and women who struggle with their past regrets of abortion, using the Biblical principles of Isaiah 61 to bind up the wounds of the broken-hearted and to proclaim freedom from condemnation.

Client Comments:

“I’m very grateful I got to participate in the Surrendering the Secret group this summer at Life Choices. I have received a lot of healing from other groups over the years using different curricula but I really received a new level of healing from this surrendering the secret group.”

“What I liked most that helped me was the videos that had other women sharing the secret pain they carried and the vulnerability they displayed helped my heart be willing to go deeper. I also saw others in my group opening up in a similar way because of the videos and the questions that facilitated removing all of the blocks we put up to keep ourselves from going to those places of pain we need to go to in order to heal.”

“The connection and the sharing with other women brought relational healing to a broken part of my heart where my relationship with my child was broken and buried. The group provided a safe place for me to explore the painful reality of the life I ended, the circumstances and people surrounding it, the grief and loss of what should have been, and the forgiveness of myself and others.”

“I hope more women will courageously step out of the shadows and surrender this painful secret so that they, too, can experience freedom and healing. Thank you life choices for providing such a place for us.”

“Participating in the 6-week class was eye-opening. I had thought at first that my taking this course was unnecessary, but as time went on – thanks to Stacey’s leading and gentle guidance through all the keys in the course study,  I’ve learned much about myself and all the emotions that I’d been repressing all these years. Though inwardly I’m still working things out, I feel a certain weight has been lifted, and my walk with God that much closer.”

“Praise and glory be to God for His mercy, grace, and forgiveness!”

“Surrendering the Secret was raw. It brought up emotions and thoughts that I had been trying to suppress. It helped me come to terms with the decision I had made, but rather than leave me in the dark filled with regret, I was able to forgive myself, knowing that God has forgiven me.”

“I find peace knowing God is taking care of my babies for me when I thought I wasn’t able to. The Bible study brought the understanding that every life is perfectly knit together by God before we even know of it, and every single life God already has a plan for.”

“This class brought healing, but it also brought raw emotions, and with that came the need to communicate with my loved ones and with God even more. I’m grateful you were willing to lead this class and that we were able to talk about something that made us all so vulnerable without passing any judgment. I’d recommend this class to anyone struggling after having an abortion.”

I have really enjoyed the trauma recovery class. It has helped explain the trauma and how it affects people’s lives. The understanding has brought peace. It has given me ways to work through the trauma that I’ve experienced. I feel like it has brought me a lot of healing. Stacey has been gentle and kind and I am so grateful for the help, prayers, and time she has invested in me.
