Healing After Abortion: A Conversation with Gwen Smith

Healing & Recovery, Identity & Shame, View All

Filed In

For as many as 1 in 4 women in the United States, a past abortion is a secret kept locked away in the hidden recesses of their souls. A secret that quietly eats away at the regretful woman’s heart every day. Today’s episode of the Purpose in Purity Podcast offers hope to those seeking to overcome the shame and guilt and enter into the peace, grace, and blessed assurance of God’s mercy, love, and forgiveness.

Today, I’m joined by Gwen Smith, singer, songwriter and author of “Broken into Beautiful.” And we want to thank you for joining us as she shares her testimony of how she found healing after abortion.

Gwen Smith has authored several books including, I Want it All (David C. Cook Publishing) and Broken into Beautiful (Harvest House Publishing). She’s the co-author of Trusting God and Knowing God by Name (WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing). In addition to being one of three co-founders of the Girlfriends in God conference and devotional ministry, Gwen has written and co-produced 6 full-length CDs and 2 EPs. Gwen has 3 tall children that keep her and husband on their toes and on their knees.

Some Questions I Ask Gwen

  • How do we come out of secrecy?
  • How can we begin the process of find healing for the mistakes of the past?
