In Wonderfully Made, author Neva Ann Cairco reveals her life’s journey and exposes the core cause for abortion. Her story is written to help heal the broken and wounded—with God’s direction. For Neva, discovering the underlying rationale for that decision was the beginning step to obtain her release from abortion’s guilt and shame. God used her struggles to reveal his love and mercy. Neva brings to light the potency of the forgiveness found in Jesus Christ. That very same power is available to help others struggling with this heart breaking experience. But how do we get there? Neva takes a loving yet no-nonsense look at abortion. She shows us how we can receive God’s forgiveness. She walks us through her life’s path of innocence, deception, confusion, heartbreak, revelation, and release. She understands that many lives have been deeply impacted as a result of that single decision. Living with abortion’s guilt and shame is a killer, but you can come alive and discover the joy and freedom of forgiveness. The children are waiting.
Religion by Francis Joel Smith with Michele DuBroy
From the moment Hugh Dermott O'Connor""later to become Francis Joel Smith""was conceived, God's perfect plans for his life were already in motion. Born with Treacher Collins syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects the formation of the face during the first trimester of pregnancy, Infant Hugh's face was so severely deformed emergency surgery was performed moments after his birth just so he could breathe. Soon thereafter, he was deemed deaf and retarded. If Infant Hugh survived, it was believed he was destined to live out his life inside the walls of an institution. Yet his medical team fought valiantly to save this helpless infant's life. The LORD had other plans. Decades earlier, his God-fearing, God-loving adopted parents""Bob and Betty Smith""were divinely brought together and prepared and placed exactly where they needed to be in order to take this struggling, suffering child who battled for survival into their home, just as they already had with ten other challenged and rejected children they adopted before him. His foster mother, Mrs. Lillian Collins""a loving Christian woman""fought to sustain him and meet his immediate needs that included his first hearing aid and hefty doses of prayer. At two and a half years old, he was seamlessly integrated into the Smith household where daily scripture readings and prayer nourished him spiritually, and relentless ongoing tube feedings nourished him physically. Above all, Bob and Betty taught their children to love the LORD no matter what and to never give into their challenges. The LORD steadily provided for their needs, and through prayer and loving guidance, every challenge was met head-on. Today, Dr. Francis Joel Smith is a PhD medical researcher in craniofacial development and is a world-renowned speaker, musician, and advocate for those who suffer from craniofacial anomalies as he has.
