John 10:10 may be the most powerful verse in scripture: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

In this piece of scripture, we are shown both sides of the coin: the devil’s side, and God’s side.

When I have heard ladies speak of abortion, they have often used the words “kill, steal and destroy” to describe various aspects of their experience. Many times, wounds go unhealed – and God’s side of the coin is rarely seen. This is all part of the devil’s plan – to hold people down in their guilt, shame, and regret and to make them feel as though they are forever condemned.

Valley Pregnancy Center in Pleasanton is offering a Post-Abortion Recovery class for women struggling with feelings of loss or regret from a past abortion(s). Through this 14 week Bible study (PACE), many women have found healing, freedom and resolution. Groups are forming to begin in August 2015 and February 2016. Individual meetings are also available. All correspondence will be treated sensitively and confidentially. Just call (925) 425-0414 to speak with someone who cares about you, or email You will be met with compassion and understanding.

Come and see God’s sign of the coin!
