Pennies from Heaven

Based on the events that led Koedi Nealy to her life-long passion for spreading the Gospel of Jesus, Pennies from Heaven teaches children that they are never too young to do great things for God. Gracie, a little girl who loves Jesus, pennies and ice cream, discovers how to love as Jesus does through ordinary daily experiences. Inspired by the Bible verse 1 Timothy 4:12 "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, faith and purity." Gracie sets a plan into action to help a homeless family living under a bridge. The idea of helping the overlooked and undervalued in our communities and Changing Lives One Penny at a Time came to Koedi at the age of seven. For six years, Koedi collected pennies, enlisted friends and invited everyone who would listen, to help her. In 2015, her journey culminated in the non-profit Graced Ministry that currently ministers to the homeless population in Houston, Texas.
