It's How We Get Up

“It’s not in how you fall down, it’s how you get up,” a friend reminded me recently. That’s a statement that has been said in different variations by many people for years. It’s true.

Many people equate grace with religion and think of it as entirely spiritual, which it is, but it also isn’t. It is emotional and arrives in different forms and in ways we may not realize.

 My Grandma, who passed away in December 2006, instilled in me that grace is always there.

I believe it comes in the form of blessings, including ones we often ignore. It can come in big or small packages, from friends, family, or people we encounter just once. Sometimes we recognize it, and sometimes we don’t. 

Grace Redefined is about the everyday grace we may not recognize, wisdom to help us become better versions of ourselves and who God wants us to be, and acknowledging and learning from our mistakes, weaknesses and doubts. 

It’s not in how we fall, or if we fall, or how many times we fall, it’s that we do get back up. 

Grace comes from the heart and we apply it to life.
