Welcome back to Growing Into Grace! Thus far, we have had some amazing guests share the things they know for sure, and how those life lessons have helped them grow into grace. We're down to the last stretch and there are only two more features before the series ends; I know, I'm somewhat sad too. However, I'm glad I chose to bring the series back, and I'm grateful to all the women who chose to participate. I'm a firm believer in the notion that we are all interconnected; that somehow my purpose will ignite your purpose, which will eventually ignite hers, and so on and so forth. That ultimately we're all working together for some larger purpose, something that is much bigger than us. Our next guest touches on this idea of greater purposes, and trusting the process of that purpose; I'm sure you'll enjoy it just as much as you've enjoyed the others. Feel free to comment and share!
Welcome to week 3 of Growing Into Grace! Big thanks to those of you who have been following the series since week 1, and if this is your first time here, be sure to check out the previous posts. This is my third time doing the Growing Into Grace series, and with each new set of guests I grow to appreciate their gift(s) a little bit more. One of my favorite mantras is that "we as women can coexist"; sometimes we can get so caught up with what she has that we don't realize that it doesn't take away from what we have. One way that we can realize this is by knowing who we are and believing in our own gifts. Our next feature shares about the importance of knowing your worth, and speaking positive affirmations over your life. I'm sure you'll find something you can identify with; don't hesitate to comment or share!
Welcome back to the Growing Into Grace Series! I hope that you're enjoying reading the features as much as I am enjoying sharing them. I believe there is power in sharing our stories and the lessons they've taught us. There is no 'how to' guide for this thing called life, but there's something about the sense of universality that gives us hope that we too can make it though. Our next guest speaks to this idea of trusting the process of life, and knowing that you are equipped. Be sure to comment and share anything that speaks to you.
I know you have been enjoying the series, one day in! HA! But let me tell you, we have the most amazing women sharing with us all month and I am so glad that you are here. Be sure to leave a comment if anything resonates, which I know that it will. Growing into Grace has sparked so much thought and growth in my own life and it's my prayer that it will also do the same for you. Our next lovely feature was introduced to me from the Rise of The Entrepreneur Artifacts Panel that I sat on this past year.
