We are Gary and Laura House and are the parents of three wonderful adult children, two of them in ministry here on earth and one residing in heaven. After the loss of our youngest son, Nathan, we recognized the blessing of being with other bereaved parents. When gathered together, we encourage each other, share about our children, and challenge each other to trust Jesus, the ultimate comfort-giver.
Looking back at the years when Gary served as a pastor and then as a professor, we realize our inadequate preparation to help those who are grieving, suffering, or experiencing depression or other brain illnesses. Part of the vision of Our Hearts Are Home is to connect with those in ministry and the university to provide tools to help them minister to those in need.
Our Hearts Are Home is a faith-based non-profit organization whose purpose is to minister to grieving families, provide encouragement to those who are suffering, and to educate and equip individuals to reach out to those in need.
