Blooms gathered in our classroom for our last class of the semester. Looking at all their beautiful faces, big grins, happy babies cuddled in their arms or in their wombs… this is what we are all about. This is our mission. To love and care for the mommies and babies. Hearts gathering together to share and embrace each other in this season of their life.

Transformations have taken place in beautiful ways. It is evident and clearly shown on their countenance and the way the blooms even walk in the door. They have received grace in so many ways, and they are ready to give grace in return. Beauty displayed in the most precious ways. Our last class is always bittersweet for me. Even now, I am holding back tears, ok… here they come now. I think of the girls as they first walk in the door of the new semester. They are unsure what to think, what to expect, how they will fit in. From the countless of girls that have attended each semester of Embrace Grace at different locations, they all have a similar response. They look forward to their class each week. Embrace Grace is the highlight of their week. They can’t wait for more!! They LOVE it! Expectant hearts! This motivates us and inspires us to journey on in this mission!

The support, learning and growing together during their pregnancy and into motherhood; and in their relationship with God and each other fills them with satisfaction each week. They come with hungry hearts ready to receive, ready to listen, ready to respond. Their hearts are engaged. Eager to know more. It blesses us as leaders more than we can possibly relay. Our hearts overflow with compassion and humility. We are so honored to be able to walk in this season of life with you precious blooms!

We are so THANKFUL and GRATEFUL for the amazing gift you are to us! You and your baby bless us beyond measure! The gift of being you, and all that your life brings, is a package that we are able to unwrap and see the gifts God has placed within you. When you begin to grasp and see for yourself the destinies and dreams He has placed inside of you, and begin to walk in those giftings, it brings joy to our hearts. We want to sing out loud for all to hear! She found it! She knows with all her heart how her Creator designed her, or at least is getting glimpses of this design along the way.

My heart is overflowing with so much love at this very moment. Knowing that there are so many girls out there all over the world that would love to have a place to run to. An Embrace Grace in their area that they can turn to and receive so much love, grace and support.

Calls and inquiries are coming in, how can we start a group in our area? What are you doing and how can we implement something like this at our church? How do we begin? We have all of the questions and more answered in our promo packet that you can receive by emailing groups@iembracegrace.com. You may also sign up to be a group leader on our website.  Inside this promo packet is all the information you will need to take to your pastor or spiritual covering to get an approval to begin an Embrace Grace in your area.

The picture that I have been given is tiny pink hearts fluttering from the sky and landing on spots where an embrace grace will be held. We plan to get a big map soon and begin marking the areas with pink heart pins to signify an Embrace Grace in that area.

I am so thankful for the Embrace Grace’s that are starting up all over the map. There are so many more to come! Join us in prayer as we embark upon new territory and new adventures as these precious mommies and babies are looking for a place to embrace grace. This journey is off to an incredible start and we know the best is yet to come! In so many ways! Hearts are responding. Leaders are calling in with their hearts stirred saying they encountered a similar experience of being single and pregnant, and this is their passion, they had no idea there was something like this out there until now…. they can not wait to begin reaching out to the single and pregnant girls in their communities. Girls are contacting us looking for an Embrace Grace in their area. We are responding to their calls, and know that God is paving the way for so many new additions to come in this new season.

We will continue to seek God’s way in all that we pursue, knowing that His ways are best and that His timing is impeccable and perfect! Thank you for your prayers and support as we fully embrace these precious mommies and babies! God’s heart is extended through our hearts beating with the same passion and mission to reach out to these precious ones! We are so thankful for YOU!

You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, he will give you. This is what I command you: love one another. {John 15:16}

As you sent Me into the world, I have also sent them into the world. {John 17:18}

May you enjoy this time of Thanksgiving with your family and friends. May your home be filled with love, mercy and grace. May God’s love surround you and bring you so much joy! May you be embraced by grace in beautiful ways! Love pouring out from heaven above. Powerful Provision to fill your every need. May God bless you in every area of your life.
