About US

Our Mission

Gracefully Kept is an outreach ministry offering spiritual guidance and development strategies to encourage, comfort and enlighten individuals struggling through life's ups and downs with the power of God's Keeping Grace.

We believe that no matter how blemished one's past is, God has provided power through His GRACE to cover our weakness.

GK has been commissioned to empower victims of abuse and addictions by mentoring with a spiritual approach to healing.
