Love N Grace

MISSION STATEMENT:  Bringing Biblically based healing ministry to adults and children suffering from adverse experiences.

Love N Grace is a place for both adults and children to heal. This program teaches them  how to overcome pain with scripture, prayer and Jesus Christ. Love N Grace Healing Centers’ encouragers and Partners walk alongside individual children and adults while they heal and inspire them to use the tools they are taught to help others.

Individuals meet with a team of Encouragers and Partners who listen to their stories. This team specializes in listening for trauma in the individual’s life, and together they identify the emotions that go along with the trauma and the lies the individual believes because of it. Then the person is taught a simple process of how to truly “let go and let God.” Through reading the Scripture and learning how to apply it to their lives, we help them find answers to tough questions about this world and about God. Our teams stand in awe of the work God does in people’s lives as they discover themselves, joy, hope, and Jesus.

Individuals in need can call to make their own appointments, or they can be referred through their primary care physician, one of our community partners, or their church. There is no cost to the client — it is paid forward by the community. There are no barriers to getting care. Insurance is never billed or involved, so those in need can get the full benefit of their PCP and behavioral health providers.

The impact of the Love N Grace Healing Centers is evidence-based. Results are tracked using:

  • MDI – Major Depression Inventory
  • ACEs – Adverse Childhood Experiences  Questionnaire
  • LIKERT – Likert Scale
  • CDI2 – Children’s Depression Inventory

Love N Grace Healing Ministry has been problem solving for the past
ten years. Care extends to adults and children hurting deep inside
and unable to find healing from:

• Fear • Abuse • Depression • Anxiety • Mental Shut Down
• At-Risk Factors • Loneliness • Trauma • Loss • Nightmares
• Guilt • Shame • Suicidal Tendencies • The inability to stop
doing things they’ve been told are not good for them
• Psychotherapy with no signs of improvement
• Confusion about faith, God, and why?

Care for the whole person deep down in their soul where the bad
memories torment the person. Each approach is Christ-centered.
After the initial assessment the client may be offered:

• Freedom in Christ • Theophostic Prayer Ministry
• Listening Prayer • Trauma care: SRA, DID, PTSD
• Long term care for traumatically abused
• Sessions which may include art, music, journaling, and
equine care combined with God’s word, character, and truth

Who do we care for and what is the cost?

Adults and children age five and up. Clients can call to make their
own appointment, or can be referred through their principle care
physician, one of our community partners, or their church.
There is zero cost to the client, it is paid forward by the community.
There is no barrier to getting care. Insurance is never billed or
involved so clients can get the full benefit of their PCP and
behavioral health providers.

Love N Grace Healing Ministry teaches individuals:

  1. What forgiveness is.
  2. To give the lies, hurt feelings, and self-harming actions that are attached to each negative experience to God – then to give Jesus the pain.
  3. To build their identity to match who God says they are.
  4. To give them a toolbelt of Scripture and prayers to stand upon with the knowledge of how and why.
  5. To help them connect with a church or discipleship community.

Yes, we pray with them but while teaching them, we take each individual through a process to continue to heal.

Caring for the hurting by helping them heal from life’s hurts with God’s Truth.

Qualitative Outcomes:

Over 80% of adults and children tell us they now  “live life healed!”

Private sessions are commonly 1-3 hours:  130 sessions are scheduled every month.

Each individual’s symptoms have been tracked using the Major Depression Inventory, or Children’s Depression Inventory II. The Adverse Childhood Experiences Questionnaire and Likert Scale are used to track clients’ initial condition and healing progress as they go through and complete the process.

Our Center is located at:

In Muskegon:
