Review: My Baby's Feet by:Sheila M. Luck
About the Book:
Fearfully and desperately wanting to hide my mistakes and deny the unwanted, but not totally unexpected ramifications of my earlier choices, I chose what seemed to be the easiest answer. I chose death, and then I moved into the aftermath of my choice. I, for a lifetime and beyond, will live in the aftermath of my choice. Although there is recovery, through forgiveness, there are lasting ramifications. No one told me that the ramifications of my choice would last forever. No one told me what my choice would do to my heart. No one told me that my choice was, in fact, a death sentence for my baby.
About the Author:
Sheila and her husband Wayne have been blessed with two beautiful daughters. She is currently on the Board of Directors of Elizabeth Ministry International and Wisconsin Right to Life. In 2010, Sheila received a certificate in equipping from The Masters Institute.
Sheila began her career following college working as an engineer for IBM. After three years, she resigned to attend law school at Marquette University Law School, graduating in 1985. In 2003, after nearly twenty years of being employed full-time as an attorney, Sheila retired and accepted God’s call to begin writing Christian books and speaking for a variety of Christian organizations and schools.
Did you ever wonder why in the Bible it states over and over again that God forgets our sins after we ask forgiveness for them? In my opinion, it is because He is very aware that we ourselves do not forgive and forget so easily, especially when it comes down to the mistakes we make. The author made a painful choice many years ago, a choice that would haunt her for years. Something that she thought that was so simple and small, turn out to be such a big hold over her. Abortion is not a secret and its not a "little" thing.
The author shares her experience in order to reach out to others that feel that same shame and guilt. God has a way with our hearts like only he can. He can take that storm within our hearts and teach us through it, in a way to glorify Him. The author gives us an encouraging word and inspiring ways to glorify Him while He heals the wounds and scares that are left behind by decisions such as this.
