Great informational video and testimonies!

Here is a great video that explains a lot of what we offer here at the ministry and some moving testimonies from some of our mothers. We love how well our community loves and supports our families and the work we are doing together! Watch and enjoy! Huge thanks to Brad Bass Productions www.bradbass.com for all of his hard work on the video!

Ashley Smartt Room Dedication

Grace Place recently did their very first room-naming in honor of Ashley Smartt of Smartt Steps Dance Studio in Hendersonville, TN. The Smartt family supports Grace Place in so many ways, and we were honored to be a part of this special night.

Tena Lee did a beautiful write up in the Star News, check it out here!

 

GP in the news!

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to update any of our followers on this blog. Grace Place officially began taking families the 3rd week of July, so we’ve been very busy developing routine and structure for daily operations in the ministry. We can’t thank this community enough for the onslaught of support whether through financial contributions, tangible donations, or the willingness to jump in and help by volunteering. This ministry wouldn’t be here if not for you! Today alone, we’ve received many phone calls and affirmation from the community with the release of this article in the Tennessean. It gives a small glimpse of the incredible work God has been doing in the hearts of the people who began this journey a little over two years ago.

Our families at GP are inspiring! Every day we get to see God work in them and we get to witness how crazy the Lord is about every woman and child in this place!

“Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”
