Surrendering the Secret Overview

Abortion has been a readily available part of our culture since it’s legalization in 1973. Since then approximately 55 million abortions have been recorded in our nation. Statistics estimate that close to 43% (1 out of 3) women of childbearing age have experienced an abortion. These are your sisters, mothers, wives and friends. These women carry an incredible burden of silence and heartache. Many struggle for years with repressed memories, guilt, shame and depression. Most women feel they are not allowed to talk about their abortion experience, especially in church.

The truth is many women who have had an abortion suffer from symptoms of post-abortion grief and trauma. Most often, neither the medical community nor the church understands abortion as a risk factor in a woman’s physical, spiritual or emotional health.

If you feel you have never completely healed or recovered from an abortion experience, or that a past abortion may be affecting your current quality of life, then Surrendering the Secret is for you. This study offers a 6 step biblical healing model led by women who have been where you are.

Surrendering the Secret is a study designed to bring women together who understand the need for seeking peace with the past and desire a better understanding of God’s plan for making the most painful losses of our past work for His glory!

Our mission is to provide a supportive and confidential environment that facilitates healing and restoration from a past abortion and bringing a sense of hope and purpose for the future.

If you have abortion in your past, then join us in Surrendering the Secret by contacting a member of our National Leadership team.

If you are a woman’s ministry leader or counselor who has or has not had a past abortion and desires to serve on our leadership team, please contact Suzanne Howard at showard@awpm.net.
