Amy Ford and Embrace Grace truly live out the gospel through their love and compassionate care of women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. They are a model for all churches on how to share God’s grace and support, encourage and empower new mothers.
My mom was encouraged to abort her first baby due to major health concerns, she chose life. I am glad she did cause I wouldn’t have been able to be born and live out the calling God has on my life.
Wherever you find your story- hold onto Jesus and trust that He’ll walk you through this season because the little life inside of you wants to impact this world for Jesus. ‘A Bump in Life’ will give you hope to walk this out!
There is nothing as truly wonderful as finding out you’re pregnant unless the timing feels off. Of all the options available to pregnant women facing hardships, the choice to give birth requires the most courage. At Gateway Church, we put a big emphasis on helping single-parent families, and we are so proud of what Amy Ford has done with Embrace Grace.
Embrace Grace has proven to be a wonderful opportunity to pregnant girls to find not just a safe haven for her and her unborn baby until the baby is born but long after as well. Here, she can experience what true love really is, the love that comes from a Savior who gave up everything for her. Here, she learns that Jesus is for her, not against her. Here she finds forgiveness and healing from caring people who will help guide her and surround her with compassion, love and hope.
Embrace Grace is a God send to a world fallen from grace. The work that they do is truly a gift to those who are scared and alone and feel like they have no place to turn. The support and care they offer women is above and beyond what any organization does to help those in need. God bless Embrace Grace!
The Embrace Grace team exemplify the hands of Jesus reaching out to a broken world, pointing them back to the arms of their heavenly Father. Embrace Grace is a beautiful ministry to single women who find themselves pregnant and alone. It’s amazing the way shame is destroyed through their ministry, while simultaneously teaching these ladies how to live a virtuous life. I highly recommend this ministry to anyone who finds themselves unexpectedly expecting.
As I read the heart-wrenching stories in A Bump in Life of these young women who are faced with an unplanned pregnancy, my heart is even more stirred to tell the world abortion is not an option. I applaud Amy Ford and the work she is doing with Embrace Grace. This book will be a tool to penetrate the darkness and light the pathway for young women to experience God’s beautiful peace and restoration.
Amy offers hope and unconditional love to those who walk the journey of having an unplanned pregnancy. Her story provides encouragement in the waiting. Her story gives escape from shame and guilt of unplanned miracles of grace. And her story provides comfort to parents who feel guilt and pain as well. My prayer is that your life will be impacted by these stories in the same way I have been.
