Who is Embrace Grace???
Embrace Grace works through local churches to provide small support groups, baby showers, and community for unmarried pregnant women of ALL AGES. They are one of the main organizations we highlight on our website. To read a fuller description of EG, read the bottom of this post.
What is “Love in a Box” and How does it Work???
How it Works: Boxes full of gifts are distributed to pregnancy centers nation-wide and given to young, single women with positive pregnancy tests.
Each Box Includes: Testimonial Stories, Free Gift Postcard, Brave Girl Love Letter, A Bump in Life Book, Best Gift Ever Onesie, Brave Journal and Pen, Pro-Love Necklace and an Invitation to an Embrace Grace Group.
Vision: To help moms get plugged into local churches for spiritual, emotional and physical support.
Mission: To inspire hope and impart love to a mom that may be scared for her future.
Why it Matters: The boxes help brave moms get plugged into a spiritual family so they can be saved, discipled, mentored, and be a part of a community that loves them the same way Jesus loves – unconditionally!
How Can You Help???
Blurb about Embrace Grace taken from their website:
Embrace Grace, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed for the purpose of providing emotional, practical and spiritual support for single, young women and their families who find themselves in an unintended pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower churches across the nation to be a safe and non-judging place for the girls to run to when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt.
We provide curriculum and resources for the church to implement our programs and become a Pro-Love church. If the church, the Body of Christ, will join together to support these girls who choose life, young moms will be more open to not aborting their babies. Whether they keep their baby or choose adoption, Embrace Grace is a support system for them as they begin their journey of being a young mother or blessing another family with their baby. Emotionally and spiritually healthy mommies parent emotionally and spiritually healthy babies. Through the Embrace Grace program, lives are saved and generations are being changed. God loves these babies and their mommies, and we do too.
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!
