THANKS!

DSCN0443Our Semester #10 baby shower turned out amazing and magical! Hundreds of people came out to celebrate and honor a girl for choosing life! Thank you to everyone that was a part of making that day happen. All the girls were so blown away to walk into that room and see their pile of gifts on the table, the beautiful cupcakes, the cute favors … everything. I know it takes a lot of people to pull off an event so big and fun, so we just want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It was a day to remember forever and I know the girls will never ever forget!

Here are some of my favorite thank-you’s that came in from the shower (I didn’t list them all but if you want to read someone’s, I’ll send them to you!):

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone involved with making Embrace Grace happen. I have been so incredibly blessed and encouraged throughout this semester. I went into this with so many emotions and thoughts running through my head that weren’t from God. I have learned so much these past few months and have been given a renewed strength and confidence that I needed to become a Mom again. And the baby shower! Oh my goodness I felt so spoiled and loved! I received many adorable things for my son and for that, I am forever grateful. Thank you thank you thank you to everyone involved and may God richly bless you for your serving, loving and having generous hearts. Much love, Isis H.

Thank you so much for blessing not only me but all of us … the baby shower was so awesome. The Lord provides. You guys have been such a support. I looked forward to going to Embrace Grace every Monday. Seeing all the girls and hearing thier testimonies really showed me that I’m not the only person that goes through hardships. Thank you so much. May the Lord bless your lives and your families as you have blessed mine and so many others. – Lynsey W. 

I would like to tell you what a blessing you really are and what you mean to me.
 When I first found out i was pregnant with my baby girl Natalie, a lot started going through my head like, oh my goodness a third child, I have nothing for a baby, I dont have alot of support, and so much more. Then I found out about Embrace Grace. I was very unsure about what to expect at first, I was scared I would be judged. I was walking into a church with no knowledge of religion or God, I was worried about what people would think of me. I had so many feelings and emotions rushing at once. Despite my mixed emotions, i went and to my surprise i was hooked.  I enjoyed hearing all the testimonies we were blessed with and I felt like I could relate to. I was surrounded with so much love, and new friends. I learned about God and realized I was never alone, and that He had a plan putting three amaizing little girls in my life. I was getting blessed and so much help and knowledge every step of the way. I began opening my heart to God and I have noticed such a change. I got saved and I’m seeing such a bright path for my children and I really wish i could put into words a bit better and express truly how Embrace Grace and God being in my life has changed mine.  You are such a blessing. There aren’t many people who would go out of there way for a family. Thank you so much from the depths of my heart.
 Always

I just want to thank each and everyone of you for ALL of the amazing gifts you got for me:) and also for all the prayers. I feel so blessed to know how much people care. It really means SO much to me. My little guy will have so many great things! I can’t wait to use all of my gifts! The entire Embrace Grace experience has changed a lot for me and given me so much support through my pregnancy and it brings so much joy and happiness to my heart to see how much every girl has been so blessed by all of you! So again thank you! I can’t say it enough!! love Taylar H. and baby Asher!

I want to take the time and thank everyone that blessed me with baby gifts at the Embrace Grace shower. It was truly amazing, and I couldn’t be more thankful. The shower is definitely a memory that I will never forget! I don’t know what I would have done with out the support I have had, from those who helped with the shower, and being in Embrace Grace . I moved here from another state, not knowing anyone, and terrified because I was pregnant. And it was nice that I was welcomed in such a loving place like Embrace Grace. I couldn’t have done it without you guys.  You guys are truly the most amazing people I have ever came across. Thank you so much for everything, I really appreciate it! (: God bless. (: – Grace

I cant believe how much everyone is there for all these girls, I love it! Without Embrace Grace, I’m sure I would still be on the path I was, which is definitely not the right one. Or I might even be in jail, or maybe even have lost this baby – all kinds of bad things. I lost people in my life who I thought were my “friends” but then gained true friends from this group. Sometimes people say they are your friends but when a life changing situation happens you really find out who is there for you and who isn’t. I feel so blessed to have been apart of this group, and can’t wait to introduce more girls to this amazing group. I want to thank the family that donated all those gifts to me, they were amazing themselves alone. I can’t believe I had someone that understood my situation and wanted to be there to help me out, and still wants to see what baby Sophia looks like when she enters this world. At first I was scared and wasn’t sure if I would be a good mom and I’m soo happy to say i feel much more confident now. I know that if I have any doubts i can turn to God and i can ask anyone in this group for help if i truly need it.. Without Embrace Grace, i wouldn’t have been able to recommit my life to God.  I feel so much better about life now that I have asked God to come back into my life and just knowing that He’s going to be there no matter what i do. I feel so blessed to know I’m a part of something thats great in life. I was nervous at first joining this group because I had no idea how people would treat me but to know that everyone is there to support you and not to judge made me feel so relieved. i love every one of you ladies and everyone thats been there for me on this new journey in my life… I’m so excited for Sophia to be here I can’t wait, i know she’s going to have so many people that love her! – Jeni

To everyone who was apart of this blessing to all of us, let them know how thankful we are Amy. It’s truly a blessing, & I’m honestly lost for words. With each small or big gift that was opened lifted so much stress & weight off our shoulders. I can’t tell you how many things that we got last night that we actually NEEDED!

To everyone who was apart of this is really an angel from God.  I’m very blessed to have been a part of Embrace Grace. It brings me to tears thinking about how much I’ve learned and how far I’ve come. I speak to God on a daily basis and not a day goes by when I don’t think about March 18, the night I chose to be saved. 
Bless you all, we love each & every one of you! 
- Love, Arian

DSCN0445I just want to say thank you for all the gifts that were bought for me. I really appreciate everything that everyone has done for me, and all of you are an extreme blessing to my life and to my son. I have truly learned (through Embrace Grace) how so many people can really care for someone even if they don’t know them that well. This has been the best experience of my life and I thank God everyday for everyone who contributed to helping me and spreading God’s word to me. Thank you so much for everything! I really appreciate it, you guys are a perfect example of Christian people and I thank you for setting such a wonderful example for me and helping me understand what a true Christian is! Thank you again so much – Diamonnd J.

I seriously love these girls …. L.O.V.E.
