By Faith Episode #9: BJ Garrett on Sexual Abuse, Sexual Sin, Abortion, and Forgiveness

Each week this season on "By Faith," I’m talking to someone who is walking forward by faith, many of them through difficult circumstances. We’re asking the question, “How does God meet us in our deepest, darkest pain and how does He turn that pain into beauty?” 

All of the podcasts in this season of "By Faith" have been conversations with people who are living out what I’ve written in my recently released book, Searching for Spring: How God Makes All Things Beautiful in Time. If you’ve resonated with the men and women I’ve talked with who say life has been hard in certain ways but that they've also learned to see the beauty and goodness of God through those very things, Searching for Spring is a book for you. My hope and prayer is that it will encourage you in your own walking forward by faith. Grab your copy here.

Today my guest on "By Faith" is BJ Garrett. Before I introduce BJ, you need to know that today’s episode covers adult topics and, although not crass or crude, the subject matter is not suitable for children. BJ is a wife, mom, and grandmother. In my conversation with her, she shares about her experience with sexual abuse, sexual sin, and abortion. She also shares about how she came to understand who God is, how she finally embraced His forgiveness, and what she’d want women to know who have chosen abortion for themselves.
