The inspirational story of how a woman with a difficult past befriended a homeless man whose kind, life-affirming spirit taught her and their Texas community about forgiveness, humility, and the boundless love of God.
Stopped at a familiar Houston intersection on her way to work, Ginger Sprouse watched the homeless man pacing the garbage-strewn ground in his bare feet. Compelled to pull over and say hello, she was drawn to his exuberant joy and infectious smile. Over the next few months, she would learn that Victor, who was mentally disabled, had been returning to that spot because it was the last place he had seen his mother--three years earlier.
Motivated by her faith and their deepening friendship, Ginger set out to help Victor, creating Facebook and GoFundMe pages to raise funds for Victor's medications, clothing, and food. When it became clear that he could not live safely on his own, she and her family took a leap of faith and offered him a permanent place in their family. What Ginger learned from Victor about forgiveness, humility, and love changed her forever. Kinda Like Grace is a powerful reminder that seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome, that we all deserve second chances, and that each of us has a limitless capacity to love our neighbors, no matter how different from us they may appear to be.
