You may have heard it said that you can’t have a testimony without a test. For Cheryl, that test is defined by her siblings’ schizophrenia—siblings, plural—a test that Cheryl keeps retaking.

How do you respond to life’s tests?

  • I simply survive the test
  • I strive to fix everything
  • I thrive with confidence

Cheryl has responded in all three ways. When she felt like she had no control, she survived the test while making life-altering “choices,” including abortion. After she educated herself about schizophrenia, she strived to fix everything.

After her fourth (and certainly not her final) test, Cheryl paused to reflect on how she learned to respond to her siblings’ schizophrenia in a thriving way without stressing out or neglecting her own needs and to reflect on how the abortion conversation needs to change.

In this raw memoir, you’ll encounter abortion, divorce, homelessness, career identity crisis, uninvited judgment, and really good music. Cheryl invites you into her journey from pro-choice to pro-life, from unrealized pain to complete healing, from surviving her life circumstances, to striving to fix everything, and now thriving even though the tests continue.

It’s time to change the abortion conversation, shed light on what it does to women, and respond to #shoutyourabortion. Get started with this first book in the Faces of Abortion Series.

About the Author

Cheryl Krichbaum has a burning passion to change the conversation about abortion so that abortion-minded women and men know the vitality draining consequences of abortion on themselves. In response to the #shoutyourabortion movement, the Faces of Abortion Series boldly speaks the truth about the death that abortion causes to not just babies but also to women's souls. Cheryl invests her time writing, speaking, and designing Bible studies to help Christians know what both the Old and New Testaments say about the sanctity of life and the sanctity of sex, how to pray for the end of abortion in The Church and in our communities, and how to talk to the abortion-minded. The Lord has impressed on Cheryl the books that belong in the Faces of Abortion Series, of which ReTested is the first. The second and third books will tell other women's stories to help Christians understand how abortion-minded women think. As a writer and instructional designer, Cheryl knows that you must know your audience, so let's get to know our abortion-minded audience. Cheryl has a Bachelor of Science in Scientific and Technical Communication from the University of Minnesota and worked professionally as a technical and professional writer, project manager, and instructional designer.
