Embrace Grace – Cordova TN


At Embrace Grace – St. Francis of Assisi Cordova TN our mission is to be there for every girl with an unplanned pregnancy – to have a church to go to for spiritual, emotional, and physical support.

Us at a Glance

We know that women are being faced with difficult circumstances when they find themselves unexpectedly pregnant. Our society says “you can’t have a baby and achieve your dreams” BUT we say- YES YOU CAN BRAVE GIRL! Let us help you and love on YOU every step of the way. We are Pro-Baby, Pro-Momma, and Pro-LOVE! That is why we ultimately decided to launch this beautiful ministry right here in Cordova. With the support of our pastor and parishioners at St. Francis of Assisi, we feel we can certainly make a difference in our community and the lives of the BRAVE moms who come to us!

“The church has a powerful opportunity to be a catalyst of change in a woman’s life as well as broaden their community outreach to help moms be brave.”

The Program

This is a 12 week program that equips and empowers single pregnant women who choose life! Upon completion of the program, each mom receives a baby shower where she gets everything she needs for her baby and we celebrate HER for being BRAVE!

One Step at a Time

We are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the need of supporting single young women faced with an unplanned pregnancy. With our love and support these mommas can feel confident in choosing LIFE for their unborn babies and know that God will be there, loving them BOTH, every step of the way. Support is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Let me brag about Embrace Grace for just a minute! I found this program via Facebook Market Place and to be completely honest I saw it pop up like 5x before I inquired…I was very skeptical. Seeing an advertisement for a program that was willing to help mothers whom have tiny infants, to who are expecting, and even considering adoption! How amazing is that by the way?! I’m not going to lie I was absolutely 100% terrified when I made contact! But did you know that FEAR will hold you back from stepping into your greatest form of self simply because fear is nothing more than an illusion that keeps you safe. As I read over terms and conditions I felt compelled to contact Mrs. Ashley right away…thank god that I did because she was just starting her first class right here in Memphis.The journey has been over a 12 week span program that goes through many lessons I think we all should know, love, and learn. It would definitely make the world a better place! They will touch on things that we all battle with on an everyday basis within ourselves, dealing with other people throughout our lives, and how important it is to choose life! I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster with these ladies they’ve seen me at my most vulnerable moments. Within those moments they did everything in their power to make the load on me a little bit lighter and tolerable. Because that’s what people do when they love you. They want to see the best form of you by putting fuel to your flame instead of putting it out! The love I’ve seen put into us has been simply amazing!Even though our program was affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic we haven’t missed a beat with class. These ladies were so determined that we went virtual and video conference calls. Even though the baby shower has been cancelled that was due on 04/18/20 they’re still throwing us a baby shower via conference call and dropping off all of our gifts with an added surprise! No I didn’t do this program for FREE STUFF I did this program because it was put on my heart too! I brag about this program because it was put on my heart to do it! If you truly only knew what this program has helped pull me out of mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually you would be amazed! Don’t allow FEAR to hold you back from something that could be a real blessing for you! What’s for you will be for you! Thank you to everyone at Embrace Grace you’re truly amazing and loved. You’re a treat as well as a blessing. Keep up the good work! You’re going to change some lives here in Memphis all they have to do is accept the help that’s being extended to them. And if this message can just reach one person then I’ve done my job that god has put on my heart to do. I love you ladies to the moon and back!

Words can’t express how much I appreciate the ladies at Embrace Grace- St.Francis of Assisi Cordova TN they have made this last few weeks of my pregnancy very stress free. I lost my precious son on April 28th of 2019 and baby girl is due on April 27th it took me awhile to see the beautiful in the pregnancy and accept reality for what it is. Pregnancy after losing a child is extremely hard and I felt my sinking into a dark place right before I joined Embrace Grace oh I wish I could have hugged you ladies Ashley, Jennifer & Jan. Thank you for all that you have done.

Your leaders are the definition of Embrace Grace. They all opened their arms up to complete strangers with such loving and compassionate hearts there has never been a time in this program where I felt ashamed of my story or felt like I was being judged or rejected and I love it! Their desire to relate with, understand, and support their blooms is amazing! I’ve never been to a support group that not only supports you but also feeds you, provides childcare, rewards, and gives you the most important gift of the word of God, this group is beyond amazing! Walking into the classroom everyday was so refreshing as whatever mood I may have been in prior to arriving was changed once I walked into the door. It was refreshing to find women of such strong faith build me up and give me resources to help strengthen my faith as I had been wanting to do for quite sometime but wasn’t sure how to start.
