Please join us for our second annual fundraiser, A Night With Grace House:  Beauty for Ashes!

A Night with Grace House is an event where you will hear the powerful story of freedom. This year, the night will feature the stories of several Grace House ladies and how they have seen Beauty for Ashes in their own lives. The story of Grace House will be expressed through different artistic streams including music, media and spoken word. You will hear from women who have come through the battle for freedom from addiction and have experienced the grace of God in very real ways. 

The evening includes a banquet dinner and silent auction! We would love to have you there with us!

Open House Question and Answer!

Check out our video (https://youtu.be/IEXgLsdrFw4) about this amazing opportunity happening this Sunday, June 26th from 2:00-4:00! We hope you can join us!

What makes Grace House such a unique treatment program? What happens in Grace House each day? Why is Grace House an entire year program? We would love to invite all those who have invested in or are interested in learning more about our program to have a tour of our home. Come and experience an up close and personal glimpse of the life and journey that we call Grace House. Hear stories of some of the ladies of Grace House and what this home has meant to them.

We recently had a fire that provided the opportunity for some much needed repairs and upgrades to our home. We are so thankful for your donations and support of the Grace House and we would love to invite you to come and see our newly restored home.

We will offer short tours for groups of 10-12 people at a time, ending with a time of Q&A and refreshments. If you are interested in attending our event please email us!

Thank you for all you do to support the Grace House!

Love,
The Grace House Team

Relational Restoration

Addiction holds people hostage. As a Grace House Coach, the opportunity to listen, pray, model healthy behaviors, and point the ladies to the love of the Lord is a daily privilege.
Along the way there are teachable moments where the ladies learn appropriate conversations, attire, and general life skills.
One huge reality we confront is unhealthy relationships. On a personal level, I am so thankful to have learned how to set healthy boundaries with loved ones who have not yet found the freedom from addiction that only Christ can bring. I truly understand the dangers of enabling an addict. Part of my role in the home is to help raise awareness and educate the ladies in the area of codependency.  Our goal is to help teach the ladies how to make healthy choices and depend on Jesus instead.
Often, unhealthy relational attachments have been formed which have been wrongly perceived as love, acceptance, and the approval that we all long for.
By the grace of God, His strength is tearing down these strongholds.

Sunshine after the Rain

There has been lots of rain in Waco recently, the girls drew a rainbow on the sidewalk. This is even better because there was a rainbow in the sky when the rain cleared soon after!27411989336_429ebaef95_z

This captures the breakthrough that has been going on in the house perfectly. The storms are there but when the skies clear there is community and love abounding.

God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us – in the dreariest and most dreaded moments – can see a possibility of hope.
