Guest Post for Growing Up Gorgeous – It’s God’s Grace!


Hey guys!

I hope this dreary Tuesday finds you all well. Last week was quite eventful given the lead up to Thanksgiving. I finally feel like I’m finding my rhythm this week. After my turkey binge, I decided to make a good life decision and get back to some semblance of a work-out routine. I’m pleased to report that today I successfully resisted the urge to hug my sheets a few minutes longer after my alarm sounded. I completed a very tiring 19-minute yoga workout. <PHEW!> Court for the win! 😉

With all the hustle and bustle of prepping, baking, cooking, teaching and cleaning last week, I failed to share something VERY exciting. Last Monday, I was featured as a guest blogger for my friend Christina Acosta-Martinez’ very cool organization, Growing Up Gorgeous! The Growing Up Gorgeous (GG for short) website is spot on when it states, “[GG] exists to establish a community of diverse women in the South Jersey area who support, exhort and encourage one another along the journey of motherhood.”

Let me tell ya, the wonderful women of GG mean it! When I attended their launch event in September I was blown away by the amount of love shown by women from all walks of life. There was a universal recognition amongst the attendees that mothers need encouragement. The warmth experienced by all was evidence that that kind of uplift can come directly from other women and mothers.

This is why when I was invited to write a blog post for the GG blog page, I was compelled to oblige. Participation in telling God’s story for my life while also giving encouragement to others was something I could not turn down. So without further ado, here is my featured blog post for Growing Up Gorgeous entitled, “It’s God’s Grace“!

Thanks for reading and I look forward to talking with you soon!

Christ follower. Wife. Mother. Friend. Writer...and excited to grow! I believe there's a need for more down-to-earth online spaces in which moms like you and me and anyone else in-between can explore the in's and out's of homeschooling free from competition yet rich with encouragement. I'm hoping to do that through the sharing of resources and any ideas I may stumble across as well as giving you a tiny peek inside our homeschool life. Together we can experience the good, the bad and the sometimes cranky of this homeschool journey. So if you're motivated beyond the messiness I encourage you to come along for the ride! You might just be surprised what you find out. :)
