A gift from Kelly

I have talked about Kelly before on my blog. She founded Sufficient Grace Ministries (click to learn more!) after losing 3 children of her own. To read her story click here. The ministry that Kelly provides is absolutely wonderful and I hope you take the time to learn more about it and support it if you can.

Kelly and I have become rather acquainted and I am so glad. Kelly lives in Deshler, OH not far from Findlay, OH where Anthony and I are originally from. Such a small world! Kelly does such great things for women and families grieving a loss. Today I got in the mail the Dreams of You memory book that she created and a comfort bear. I knew about the book but the bear was a total surprise! Thank you so much, Kelly!

Here are some pics of the comfort bear and the memory book.

Thanks so much for sharing about our ministry. And I'm so glad you liked your little "surprise". My mother is the one who originally thought of the Comfort Bears. She made them until about a month before she passed away (October 2006 - after a grueling battle with cancer). Now the ladies at our church sew the bears (still with love and prayers). I hope you were blessed in some small way, today. I'm so grateful to have met you. Praying God's continued comfort and sufficient grace for you.

Love,
Kelly
