LORRAINE MARIE VARELA, from Planned from the Start: A Healing Devotional

Lorraine’s new book, Planned from the Start: A Healing Devotional, is a timely resource and a companion to the feature film Unplanned, which explores Abby Johnson’s journey from Planned Parenthood clinic director to pro-life advocate. Abby’s story is an emotional roller coaster for many women and men whose lives have been touched by abortion. This devotional was written to release healing and restore identity, destiny, and purpose to those who have suffered from the far-reaching effects abortion brings.
