CEDAR CREEK LAKE–The women of Grace House celebrated their 12-step journey during the eighth annual Grace House banquet which was held at The Texan in Athens Feb. 27.
During their time at Grace House, the women receive counseling, love, support, a safe living environment and are given the opportunity to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Graduates and alumni of the program, participated in cardboard ministry, displaying the trials and feelings they work to overcome while participating at Grace House. Among these were addiction, drug dealer, emptiness, IV user, lying and feeling broken or forgotten. Graduates provided testimony on how Grace House and its ministry served to help them, provide comfort and change their lives. “Since coming to Grace house I have had the chance to walk beside women who are broken and ready for a new life. I have been honored to serve and give back something that was so freely given to me. Each lady becomes part of our family. It’s nine months for the rest of your life,” said Director Crystal Price.
Grace House is free for residents and survives on the generous support by donors and home church, Christian Life Center. For more information on Grace House or to get involved, call Crystal Price at (903) 432-0012 or visit www.gracehouseccl.org.
