After attending Embrace Grace, I started seeing a transformation in myself. A seed was being planted in my soul by these selfless, wonderful, amazing women that I spent time with every week. I started to think differently about my circumstances and I began to see the great joy and miracle my baby was to me. My baby saved my life. My son put my life back on track and I had a whole new perspective. I had no idea how amazing being a mother was going to be while I was pregnant. I could only imagine but it was even more than I could have dreamed when I finally laid eyes on my blessing.
Ever since I started growing closer to God, I feel so good about my choice of adoption and blessing a family with my baby. I'm so at peace. I have always known God, but now I am spending time with Him and I feel like His daughter again. I know now that God has a plan for me, and all l I have to do is follow His voice and He'll guide me the whole way. Before: Lost, Scared & Hurt After: Found, Happy & Free in His Glory and Grace
I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to be a part of Embrace Grace. This group has opened my eyes in so many ways. Before this group, I did not attend church, not that I did not want to, I just thought I would be judged because I have a 3 year old and pregnant with my second before the age of 21, and not married. I heard about this group through my friend and I was hesitant to go because I did not know if the leaders would lecture me on how I need to turn my life around because I was not on the right path. How wrong I was! These amazing ladies never judged me or felt sorry for me. They simply welcomed me with open arms and showed me only happiness and spoke words of encouragement to me and told me how much God loved me. Monday nights became the highlight of my week! Embrace Grace has taught me how much He loves me and is proud of who I am. I found salvation on 11.11.11 that night has changed my life for the better. I will continue to follow the word of the Lord, because I now know the meaning of faith and the grace He has for me. I look forward to learning more about the Lord; I have just barely began my journey with him and look forward to teaching my girls.
I was broken into what I thought were tiny little pieces, then I was invited to this Embrace Grace family. They showed me that I was worth something, that I am strong. They taught me the power of forgiveness and the power of prayer. I am no longer broken because God put my broken heart together again. The next semester I will be sharing my testimony in hopes that it may touch just one girl, and let her know that there is always a rainbow after a hurricane. Before: I was lost and broken After: Now I'm found and healed by God's grace
God has impacted my life in so many ways! He not only helped me with the all the negative thoughts going through my head about not going through with this pregnancy and the feeling of me like I deserved a horrible life, but replaced with feelings of so much hope and peace. God's love is overwhelming. I don't have those negative thoughts anymore! I can't even express how much I look forward to this class and just the urge to hear Gods Word and be around all the love with my new friends.
I had a really difficult time with judgment. I tried to act like I didn’t mind what people thought of me but the looks and whispers I got on a daily basis cut me so deep. I felt so dirty and ashamed. I’m so thankful to say that my church was the one place I could go and receive no judgment. Instead, strangers would touch my belly and ask what I was having. They would tell me how beautiful I looked or ask me questions about the baby and how I was. To me that was crazy. I had obviously done some things that were not good but all they saw was me; not my sin but me. I wanted to be at church every minute because of the positive environment.
