We are a group of women who saw a need in our church and Tri-Cities community. We've made it our mission to love on single and pregnant young women and their families. We teamed up with Calvary Chapel Tri-Cities and YouMedical to reach out to those girls who may have an unplanned pregnancy. We care so deeply for these young women because we too have found ourselves in a similar situation. Our leaders hope are for the girls to run to the church when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt. We have been offered Gods amazing grace and wish to extend it to you! Our primary goal at Embrace Grace CCTC is to empower and provide resources to young women across Tri-Cities in a safe and non-judging environment. Also, that every girl with an unplanned pregnancy to have a church to go to for spiritual, emotional and physical support.
Our parent organization 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.
I wanted to co-lead an Embrace Grace group because I had an unexpected pregnancy when I was 21. I hid it from my parents for 3 months but once I started really showing I couldn't hide it anymore. My mom was sad and in shock and my dad was furious. As I was about to leave their house in tears my mom and dad surrounded me in a hug and said that they would be there for me. I knew they were disappointed in me but at least they were willing to support me. That baby that changed my life forever and is now a sweet, kind-hearted, witty teenager and he has a caring, genuine, goofy younger brother. I could have really benefited from a group like this. I'm here to help empower and support moms through their incredible journey into motherhood. God has truly blessed me with grace and it took all of me leaning on Him and trusting in Him to get where I am today.
Hi there! I'm just a sinner saved by grace; therefore, I am a servant of the Lord Most High. Jesus saved me from the mess I had created and gave me a wonderful family. My husband and I have three beautiful children on earth and two in Heaven (despite being told repeatedly that I wouldn't be able to have children). God has graciously allowed me to complete a Master's of Social Work degree and sit on the advisory board for Perinatal Support of Washington. As a survivor of PMAD, my passion is in preventive and supportive care for each woman the Lord puts in my path. I believe that God never wastes our pain but makes something beautiful out of ashes.
I'm an Embrace Grace leader who has her own grace story to tell. I was 17 when I found myself pregnant and homeless. I was scared and lonely with only a few truly knowing my situation and less who were willing to help. By God's grace and the love of a few ladies from church willing to truly love on me, I was able to not only find my strength in God and self but raise an amazing daughter. I am here because I truly care and get it! I was once you.
