The speaker for our April Membership Event is speaker and writer, Luana Stoltenberg – please join us in hearing her story of healing from abortion. She also graciously donated her book, Singing in the Wilderness, to our library – feel free to check it out! She will be bringing her book for you to purchase as well if you'd like. We hope to see you there!
Singing in the Wilderness:
At fifteen, Luana became pregnant. Ironically, her pregnancy gave her a way out of a home filled with alcohol abuse, and dysfunction. She married, but suffered a miscarriage, and the marriage ended. Seeking love and acceptance, Luana’s promiscuous lifestyle resulted in another unplanned pregnancy. Desperate and scared, she was convinced abortion was her only option.
Her life spiraled down into depression, drug and alcohol abuse, and failed suicide attempts. After two more pregnancies and abortions, she lost all hope. But God had a plan. Luana received Christ, and her life was transformed.
She later married a loving, Christian man. However, their attempts to have children were unsuccessful. Infertile as a result of the abortions, she realized the only children she would ever bear she had killed. Through heartache, they decided to adopt a child from India.
God began opening doors, and Luana was catapulted into a world of politics and prolife advocacy.
This book showcases the power of Christ to heal and restore people from addictions and traumatic events. Her healing journey with Christ- and the authority of His Word and prayer- allow Luana to speak truth and hope to others who are on the path of self-destruction.
