Restoration for a wounded soul

"Restoration for a wounded soul" Continued...

Burt, who first met Allen through her work at The Pregnancy Centers of Central Virginia, has ministered to abortion-minded women for more than seven years. She said Allen’s willingness to talk about abortion could have a “profound” influence on others. 

“There are two kinds of voiceless—the unborn, and those who are silently suffering with abortion and are in bondage,” Burt said. “Hearing another’s testimony helps set people free.”

Today, Allen is a pro-life advocate passionate about ministering to women affected by abortion, unplanned pregnancies, or the loss of a child. She lives with her family in Raleigh, N.C., where she works as a nanny and volunteers at her local pregnancy resource center. 

“God has given me beauty for ashes and restored my soul completely,” said Allen, who believes the two babies she lost have a legacy—a message of grace, forgiveness, and the value of human life—worth sharing. “When you choose life, you will have no regrets.”
