I received this product from Embrace Grace in exchange for a review. This post is part of the FrontGate Blogger Network.
In a time where there is lots of division, arguing, name-calling, and finger-pointing, I am always looking for things that are lovely and wonderful to share with you! Today, I want to introduce you to Embrace Grace.
Embrace Grace is a non-profit organization working to provide support in practical, emotional, and spiritual ways for young women who are experiencing unintended pregnancies. They partner with churches to train and equip them to be a safe, non-judgmental place these young moms and their families. It is a beautiful thing to see this kind of loving support system being spread throughout churches and Embrace Grace is on the front lines!
I just love their “why” statement:
Most churches advocate life and discourage women from getting abortions, but once a brave and courageous girl chooses life, a lot of times the church then steps away and has nothing to offer her for support at that point. She is then left with nine months of being scared, worried and feeling alone. She journeys into a season of being a single mom without direction and guidance from a spiritual family. This is where the Body of Christ can minister to women who are desperately searching for a Savior. This is where we can speak into their lives and hearts that will have an impact for generations to come!
This beautiful necklace and journal really represent Embrace Grace well – they are pro-love for these young moms and want them to know they can make brave, strong choices because they are not alone!
Embrace Grace provides curriculum, resources, and training for churches, but they also have another cool initiative involving pregnancy centers.
“Love in a Box” is a box of hope-filled resources distributed to pregnancy centers to be passed along to a young, single woman with a positive pregnancy test. Each box includes a Fearless Journal and pen, a Bump in Life book, a baby onesie, testimonial letters from both girls that chose adoption and girls that chose to parent, an invitation to join an Embrace Grace group, and a Brave Girl letter that can be written by YOU!
I love what Embrace Grace is doing and I love how you and I can get involved with this wonderful ministry! Here are a few ideas:
- Start an Embrace Grace at your local church so young women with unplanned pregnancies have a support group.
- Partner with the Embrace Grace national organization through prayer and support!
- Download and print the brave girl letter and mail to the following address to be placed inside a Love in a Box: Embrace Grace, Inc., Attn: Love in a Box, 700 W. Bedford Euless Rd., Ste. G, Hurst, TX 76053
I am so thrilled to know of this kind of love and hope being spread around in the name of Christ. It is a chance for us to not just say we are pro-life, but to be the hands and feet of Jesus in supporting those lives!
