~ Comforting Others With the Comfort We Have Received…~
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort that we ourselves have received from God. ~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Sufficient Grace Ministries for Women, a 501 (c ) 3 non-profit, non-denominational organization, was founded by Kelly Gerken in 2004, with the purpose of reaching out to women and families to offer comfort, encouragement and hope. The Dreams of You division of this ministry was created specifically to provide comfort to women and families who have lost a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. Sufficient Grace Ministries offers a comprehensive list of support options for bereaved parents, and parents currently carrying a baby with a life-limiting diagnosis. A team of staff, leaders, and volunteers helps us offer the wide range of free services we make available to more than 1,200 bereaved families each year, worldwide, fulfilling the mission of SGM to offer the same comfort to others we received from the Lord in our time of need. Our mission is to provide exemplary support for families and to train others to do so. Bereaved parents are never asked to pay for products or services. SGM is supported through donations from individuals, churches, businesses, and other organizations. Currently, over 150 volunteers serve with SGM.

For all the precious children whose footprints are forever ingrained in our hearts we still dream our dreams of you until we meet again. See I will not forget you. I have carved you in the palm of my hand. Isaiah 49:15b & 16
On those difficult days, remember, God’s love for you. He sees your pain and sorrow. Cry out to God and lay your burdens at His feet. He is able to meet all of your needs, today and everyday. The grace He gives is sufficient to mend even the most broken hearts.
My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in your weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9
