Gathering of Grace is an online community of support, encouragement, and transformation through the grace, love and resurrection power of Jesus!
Dr. Jennifer Santos has been practicing as a Developmental Psychologist, counselor, and teacher for 16 years. In that time, she has found isolation to be one of the most challenging problems individuals deal with. In this world of constant virtual connection, we are finding ourselves more disconnected than ever. We long to be seen and known and truly loved for who we really are. Yet, as we craft our Instagram and Facebook posts to put our best face forward, we only show glimpses of our best and only see the highlight reels of our “friends”. This misrepresents what our life is and our expectation of what our life should be. We feel as if we are connected without ever really connecting.
Gathering of Grace is an online community that is a safe space to be who you really are and interact with others ready for the same authenticity you crave. I believe very strongly in being honest about our struggles as well as our successes. It is only in that open vulnerability that we can fully celebrate all God is doing in our lives. By opening up those dark, cold places of our hearts to the light of day, we can let the Lord transform our deepest pain and most agonizing struggles into exhilarating joy and limitless freedom. It doesn’t happen overnight, but one small step at a time, with each choice of life instead of death, with each breath of God’s love taken in, we find ourselves living a new life filled with light. We look around and we find that we are far from alone. We are surrounded by like-minded travelers that truly care about us, pray for us and are cheering us on!
We are so glad you have found us! We hope this is just the beginning of our journey together. We look forward to sharing stories of HOPE and JOY along the way. We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
