Angel exposes the lies of shame suffered by those who have had abortions. She emphasizes how God has a plan for every life. Angel expresses her heart and mission to help others fulfill their God-given destinies.

Murchison encourages women to seek help and to tell their abortion stories. Sharing personal experiences can prove healing to both parties.

Angel shares her journey to healing through authenticity, Bible study, prayer, and fellowship with other Christian survivors. She relates how God led her to recognize life's value and the grace He extended to hers. She details an account of feeling led to visit her parents' grave to thank them for life. 

Murchison cites that one in three women have had an abortion. She discusses the importance of grieving the loss. Angel states that the church should be a place for healing.

  • Hear God's voice.
