This Thanksgiving, I am reminded of some pretty amazing things that we have to be thankful for here at Where Grace Abounds. Thanks to you, our readers, for being a big part of this. Here are a few highlights:
- In March, we launched our new website. Since then, there have been almost 10,000 visitors there. This is a good number, and we are pleased that so many people have found their way to our blog and website. Speaking of blogs (which you are currently reading), there are 88 posts and counting. Our goal has to post 2 articles each week and so far, we have been able to do that.
- Our speaking engagements have been on the rise. In any given year, we tend to average about 25 opportunities. In May, we had already surpassed that number.
- We have seen an increase in attendance in our groups this year, with between 30-40 men and women participating each month.
- In November of 2016, we moved into our new office building… debt free! This continues to be a huge blessing. The new location felt like home soon after we were settled in. If you haven’t been by to see us here, please do!

Thank you so much for being a part of the ministry of Where Grace Abounds.
In the spring of 1995, the conflict Roger felt between his faith and his sexuality, as well as an addiction to pornography, led him to WGA. His personal journey has provided him unique insights into sexuality and the pain of adversity, which he shares through his testimony, facilitation of small groups, writing and public speaking.
Roger began working with WGA in October of 1996 as the Assistant office Manager. Since that time, he has worn many hats and served in several different positions, including Assistant Program Director and Operations Director. In April of 2007, Roger assumed the position of Executive Director.
Roger attended West Texas A&M University, where he studied Music Business. Much of his training has been “on the job,” where he was mentored by the ministry’s Founder, Mary Heathman, and the Program Director, Scott Kingry. He holds a BA from West Texas A&M University.
Roger, his wife Jill, and their daughter Julia and son William, attend Celebration Community Church where Jill serves as Associate Pastor.
