Silent No More

My local paper had a great article Tuesday about the story of a local Christian mother and grandmother, Amy Martin, and her experience of the pain of post-abortion guilt and emotional damage, plus, of course, the healing that came to her in Christ..
It took 20 years after having an abortion for Amy Martin, 45, of Flowood to speak out.
Today, she is one of two state regional coordinators for Silent No More Awareness, an international Christian campaign to inform the public on the possible devastation abortion can cause women and men.
Through gatherings across the country, women share their testimonies of hope and healing after an abortion. Silent No More will hold a gathering at noon Monday at the state Capitol where Martin and other women will share their stories of recovering physically, emotionally and spiritually after an abortion.
I heard Amy speak at Pinelake Church last March. Her testimony is riveting. I recommend viewing and listening to her testimony as I posted it then, and reading the Clarion-Leger article. For info on her ministry see below.
