Rhonda Barnes has a heart to help others heal, whether through her career as a nurse or fulfilling her call to minister to those hurt by abortion. And although our careers are very different, I found myself thinking how our stories are oh so similar. If you have had an abortion, I’m sure you can find something you share with Rhonda, too, as she transparently shared the impact of abortion in her life. She especially does a great job of sharing how the experience continues to resonate through her life long after the abortion occurred.

Rhonda knows the pain of going through the divorce of her parents as a teen, and the connection to becoming sexually active too soon. She is also able to help women who feel rejected by a man who had promised marriage before the pregnancy occurred. Overcoming backsliding, spiritual bondage and other challenges have all helped her effectively lead others to freedom in faith.

Through years of ministry she is able to tenderly share the stories of women and men whose experience may have been very different. The common thread is the hope and healing we’ve found in God’s word and in reaching out to one another in Christ’s love.
