‘Cradle My Heart’ Debuts New Pro-Life Program on National Religious Broadcasters Network
New One-Minute Videos from Kim Ketola to Reach Millions of Homes
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.—“Cradle My Heart Today” (www.CradleMyHeart.org), which provides daily truth and inspiration to choose and defend life through a one-minute radio feature on more than 800 stations, is now debuting a weekly short series on the National Religious Broadcasters Network.
The one-minute videos will begin airing today, June 5, on NRBTV.
Cradle My Heart’s Kim Ketola, an excellent storyteller and award-winning writer and broadcaster, has used her talents, along with her faith and own life experiences, to unveil one of the biggest untold stories of our time—the spiritual impact of abortion on the women and men who choose it, as well as the hope available to make a better choice.
“We are so blessed to offer a new series of videos to millions of homes on the NRB Network,” Ketola said. “Our vision is to save innocent lives and heal hearts after abortion—one story at a time. And the stories told through ‘Cradle My Heart’ address the public health crisis of abortion, as well as help those scarred by abortion take a step toward the road to healing. We are thrilled with this new video opportunity so ‘Cradle My Heart’ can impact even more listeners and share the message of God’s forgiveness, restoration and healing after unintended pregnancy and abortion.”
One new video will air each week on NRBTV, several times throughout the week. The one-minute videos will tell a personal story about an unplanned pregnancy and will also direct viewers to their local pregnancy help centers.
In the video, Ketola narrates Robin’s story, where the mother who chose life for her baby boy says, “I still went to college, I still met the man of my dreams. I still had a life beyond my unplanned pregnancy. Were things hard for me back then? Yes, they were, but all of those experiences shaped me into who I am today. … I know without a doubt that choosing life not only saved my son, it saved me too.”
Ketola noted that fear drives many abortion decisions, and Robin had those same fears but overcame them through life-affirming support, which she now offers other mothers in her same situation by working in the pregnancy health movement.
This spring, Cradle My Heart announced that “Cradle My Heart Today” was also airing on the American Family Radio Network and Bott Radio Network.
