‘Cradle My Heart Today’ Pro-Life Radio Feature Now Airing on 600+ Stations Nationwide
Kim Ketola’s Daily One-Minute Program Airing During American Pastors Network’s ‘Stand in the Gap Today’ and ‘Wretched Radio’
Peachtree City, GA—“Cradle My Heart Today” (www.CradleMyHeart.org), which provides a daily dose of truth and inspiration to choose and defend life by sharing stories reflecting faith in Jesus Christ to redeem us after unintended pregnancy or abortion, is now airing on more than 600 radio stations.
The daily one-minute radio program from Cradle My Heart Productions, Inc., and hosted by Kim Ketola now airs during the one-hour “Stand in the Gap Today” program from the American Pastors Network and during the daily half-hour broadcast of “Wretched Radio.”
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 thrilled that ‘Cradle My Heart Today’ is reaching so many through radio stations around the country,” Ketola said. “Our vision is to save innocent lives and heal hearts after abortion—one story at a time. Especially at this time in our culture, abortion continues to make headlines and divide the nation, but we know that the need for healing and prevention is great. ‘Cradle My Heart’ stories address the public health crisis of abortion, as we think through all aspects of pro-life issues. We are excited and blessed with this new radio opportunity so ‘Cradle My Heart Today’ will impact even more listeners and share the message of God’s forgiveness, restoration and healing after unintended pregnancy and abortion.”
“Stand in the Gap Today” airs on about 425 stations, including the Christian Satellite Network (CSN), Kingdom Keys Network, The Life FM Network, as well as several local and independent stations. “Wretched Radio” airs on more than 560 stations, including CSN, the American Family Radio, the CHIM Radio Network in Canada and The Dove Network in the Pacific Northwest. The new partnership brings the “Cradle My Heart Today” station total to 634.
Ketola’s story and voice have been featured on many national radio and television outlets, and she also serves as host and executive producer of the weekly one-hour “Cradle My Heart Radio,” airing live each Sunday at 9 p.m. on several broadcast outlets, including three top 50 markets. “Cradle My Heart Radio” can be heard live via streaming audio at www.myfaithradio.com or on the My Faith Radio app. Several stations in Minnesota, Ohio and Georgia also air the program; check here for local listings.
Ketola has been inducted into the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame for her work as Kim Jeffries on KS95, WCCO Radio and TV and KTIS. Her book, “Cradle My Heart: Finding God’s Love After Abortion,” which features a foreword by Ruth Graham, is an Amazon bestseller and was a finalist for the Evangelical Christian Press Association’s Book of the Year in 2013. Ketola also teaches pro-life apologetics in pregnancy centers, as well as Christian colleges and high schools.
Ketola is also featured in multiple episodes of “Life Is Best” from Wretched TV and the Life Training Institute, hosted by LTI’s Scott Klusendorf. Over the next several weeks, the 13-episode series will air at 7:30 p.m. ET Fridays on NRB-TV. Learn more about the series here and click here to learn more about where to watch NRB-TV.

Cradle My Heart Radio is a safe space for listeners to connect with others who are finding God’s love—especially during unintended pregnancy and after abortion. The ministry’s outreach is a result of listening to hundreds of women and men share their stories. The Cradle My Heart online blog is a companion to the bestselling book by Kim Ketola, “Cradle My Heart: Finding God’s Love After Abortion,” released by Kregel Publications in 2012. Net proceeds from the book and CD are donated to organizations in the pregnancy help movement.
The vision of Cradle My Heart Productions, Inc., a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, is saving lives and healing hearts after abortion one story at a time. The mission is to effectively answer the public health crisis of abortion through education and excellence in communications. Cradle My Heart values center on the belief that defining success means reaching as broad an audience as possible with the message of the value of every single individual human life and the redemptive power of God’s love. Because unintended pregnancy and abortion are problems which often unfold in isolation, radio is an ideal medium to reach women and men in their time of need with a message of encouragement and hope in Jesus Christ. Children are a gift from God and worthy of protection at every stage of development regardless of the circumstances of their conception. Abortion is the intentional act of destroying an innocent human life, therefore it is morally wrong.
