The autumn season is fully upon us here in Nebraska, and we are excited that God also ushers in new seasons in our walk with Him and our relationships with those we love. It has been humbling and inspiring to witness the personal love and care that Jesus shows to those who are seeking His redemption from pain and strife and confusion and sin. He is amazing! Looking ahead, Jim is planning to be a speaker at the ReNew Hope Prison Crusade coming up in Alabama in January. Then we have scheduled a conference entitled "It's Never Too Late To Live Happily Ever After," to share the principles of Biblical healing and heart-restoration, for the weekend of February 1-2, 2013. Grace Fellowship in Atmore, Alabama, is hosting the Friday evening, Saturday daytime conference. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to receive a brochure, please let us know, or give us a call. Jim has counseling sessions scheduled for several weeks in the Alabama/Florida areas during January and February. If you, or someone you know would like to schedule a week of counseling during that time, we will remain in the Florida area throughout the month of February.

Simple Grace Ministries is committed to assist couples (including premarital counseling), individuals and families resolve spiritual, emotional and relational problems through Biblical principles. Our ministry is centered on Jesus Christ and the purpose He proclaimed for Himself in Luke 4:18: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.” (KJV) Our hearts are deeply burdened for people who are hurting and who need to experience healing and freedom in their personal relationships. The ministry of Jesus was focused on the hearts of those He encountered as He walked here among us. We believe Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, is still profoundly concerned for the hearts of people, and fervent to restore us to wholeness. “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” (Proverbs 4:23)* When the heart is injured, what springs forth is brokenness and is damaging to oneself and others. We desire to provide counseling that will result in the restoration of peace and joy in relationships, and intimacy with God and loved ones. Relationships don’t have to be destroyed to be painful and in need of a healing touch. From great marriages and exciting engagements to drifting mature marriages and generational hurts, every relationship needs a tune-up and some healthy maintenance occasionally. We believe every couple and/or family can grow from a little, or perhaps major, heart-care. Our commitment is to:
Accept each person where they are, without conditions or judging
Care about each person’s heart
Understand each individual on a personal, heart level
Pray, inviting the Holy Spirit to heal, free and restore each person, bringing them to joy and peace
It is our desire to gently lead our clients to the Lord Jesus and allow Him to minister personally to their hearts. We also provide tools and teaching to equip couples and individuals to continue their journey of healing and growth toward maturity, intimacy and freedom.
