Kristy's Prayer Blankets is a tangible reminder of God's love and healing grace. This is a ministry done in remembrance of Lucy & George Boyd's daughter, Kristie, who had MS.

You can get involved with sewing, or by donating materials.

Please contact Lucy Boyd about receiving blankets, mailing them, or helping in any way at 703-789-2652 or lcgb@verizon.net.
