After nine years of a difficult ministry in an Ontario housing complex and the deaths of my father and brother, I plunged into the deepest, darkest hole you could imagine. As anger, fear, depression, and loneliness engulfed me, I poured out my emotions. – God, who are You? – God, if You love me, show me. – God, why didn’t You protect me? I asked God to guide my healing process and give me the right books to help me heal. God answered my prayers.

About Healing Our Brokenness Ministries & Grace Gayle

Grace GayleGrace Gayle is the founder and director of “Healing Our Brokenness Ministries” (2014). Through this umbrella Grace and Paul reach out to individuals who are struggling with the aftermath of childhood trauma, broken marriages, relational issues, addictions, and depression. 

Grace Gayle and Paul are Chaplains with the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada, ministering in community settings. They bring thirty years’ experience walking with wounded individuals through their journeys of healing in pursuit of mental wellness. Grace believes the best medication for broken hearts and depression is meditating on Scriptures of God’s love.  

Grace’s greatest passion is in growing ever deeper in her relationship with her Heavenly Father. Time spent in personal worship, prayer, and Bible study is her source of life, love, strength, wisdom, and knowledge. Her desire is to use what God is teaching her to reach the lost and build up individuals in their own journeys of faith. Her joy is to watch the progress of people moving from brokenness to wholeness, and on to leadership in ministry.

Grace Gayle has written eleven books on using Scripture in the healing journey. Nine of which are a series entitled “Healing Emotional Wounds.” Designed for small groups, each book has a workbook at the back for personal application and group discussions (2017). Grace has used these books in church settings and has witnessed lives being transformed.

Grace’s first book, “From Victim to Victor”, subtitled, A Personal Healing Journey, was published in 2012. In it, Grace tells her own story with transparency and straightforward illustrations of how God used Scripture to bring complete healing to her brokenness. The book is intended to be a roadmap by encouraging the reader to follow in her footsteps toward mental wellness.

In 2017, Grace published her autobiography, entitled, “The Making of Grace”, in which she again in open honesty, shares the struggles of two broken individuals coming together into a dysfunctional marriage. The reader walks with Grace and her husband, Paul, through the healing of their marriage and other relationships.
