The New CD From Standing With Hope Founder, Gracie Rosenberger
For virtually her entire life, Gracie Rosenberger’s powerful and soaring voice brought crowds to their feet— in stark contrast to her broken body traumatized by a horrific car accident (November 18, 1983).
Yet, the lengthy years of surgeries, pain, complications, and a host of other issues took their toll. In 2010, Gracie’s already compromised health plummeted deeper, and she faced death several times. The outlook looked bleak, and her voice appeared silenced.
Gracie, however, fought back. Above all, she trusted God with her extreme challenges. Literally singing from her hospital beds, Gracie pushed herself to rise from near certain death to stand …and walk.
- 80 surgeries (& 150+ smaller procedures).
- Both legs amputated.
- 100+ physicians have treated her in 12 hospitals
- Gracie continues to endure the ravages of a brutal journey and lives with severe pain from the massive trauma she suffered.
Yet, with every step, and every song, she continues to trust God with her challenges. In the process, she demonstrates a strength, perseverance.
Struggling in a hospital bed just a few short years ago, I KNEW that God had not brought me through all the things I’ve endured for so long …to die like this. Furthermore, I knew that as long as I have breath in my body …that HE has purpose for my life. – Gracie
With every step— and every song—Gracie trusts God with her challenges while demonstrating perseverance.
Gracie continues to prove that she is…Resilient!
With 14 songs, this full length CD is Gracie’s first in more than a decade. Furthermore, RESILIENT contains original songs, and powerful duets with such artists as Joni Eareckson Tada and Russ Taff. In addition, Gracie invited John Arrn to accompany her on “You Must Believe in Spring.” John, a retired music professor from Nashville’s Belmont University accompanied Gracie when she audition for the school in 1983 ( before her accident). He also served as piano professor for Gracie’s husband. Furthermore, John played at Gracie’s and Peter’s wedding, as well as their son’s wedding.
RESILIENT is produced by Peter Rosenberger, and Grammy® award winner, Chris Latham.

“For the Wounded and Those Who Care for Them”
Prosthetic Limb Outreach
Following the amputation of her legs, Gracie Rosenberger envisioned a way to assist her fellow amputees with quality prosthetic limbs as a means of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a result, she launched Standing With Hope. This led to an unique partnership with the Republic of Ghana in 2005. Standing With Hope regularly sends supplies and teams to train and equip local worker to help them build and maintain limbs for their own people.
In addition, inmates at a Tennessee prison volunteer to help disassemble used prosthetic limbs collected by Standing With Hope in order to recycle usable parts. This prison outreach is one of many faith-based initiatives run by Core Civic at their correctional facilities. As a result, those recycled parts are shipped (along with purchased supplies) to build custom-fitted limbs in Ghana. Furthermore, patients come from as far away as Nigeria to receive prosthetic limbs and treatment.
Family Caregiver Outreach
Standing With Hope expanded the ministry’s scope in 2011 to include an outreach headed by co-founder, Peter Rosenberger. Drawing upon his lengthy journey as Gracie’s caregiver, Peter launched his radio program, HOPE FOR THE CAREGIVER. As a result of Peter’s efforts and the great need of family caregivers, the show has soared to the #1 broadcast show for family caregivers. Hope for the Caregiver is heard LIVE each week on American Family Radio and Sirius XM’s Family Talk Channel (131).
