Dade Co. Expectant Moms Invited To A Community Baby Shower

A community baby shower for North Georgia expectant mothers, hosted by Rooted By Grace Ministries, will be held Sept. 10.

Rooted in Grace Ministries, based in Chickamauga, was started by Amber Casteel. Last year, Rooted in Grace hosted its first annual community baby shower for 31 moms in need. Casteel extends an invitation to Dade County expectant mothers to attend.

“I know what it’s like to be a young mother with the uncertainty of how my future was going to be and how was I going to provide for my child? Fortunately, God put people in my life to guide me with encouragement and provided the resources to be successful. Looking back now, I reflect from my experience and have asked the Lord to give me the opportunity to give back. Therefore, Rooted By Grace was created to inspire new mothers to get connected with the community and utilize these resources to become successful parents and continue the cycle of giving,” Casteel said.

There will be a traditional baby shower with food, games, gifts, and information on community resources. Each mom will receive baby essentials, such as diapers, wipes, bottles, bibs and blankets, and be entered to win door prizes for larger baby items.

“Our mission is not only to have an annual baby shower for moms in need but to also connect moms in rural areas to community resources they may not be aware is available to them,” Casteel said.

Expectant and new moms who need help with baby essentials, and who would like to attend the baby shower, can email Casteel at rootedbygrace.ps1.3@gmail.com to complete a brief questionnaire to receive more information and an invitation with the time and location to the community baby shower. For questions, call Casteel at (423) 802-8809.

All baby essentials and door prizes are being donated by community individuals, churches, and civic organizations. Casteel asks Dade County citizens and businesses to consider donating items for the shower.

“We want each mom to feel supported and loved by their community,” Casteel said. “Now more than ever, it’s crucial for our churches and community to support mothers that have chosen life. We can all do one small part to offer assistance, which will make a big impact.”
