About Us

The Grit and Grace Project is a community of women that understand life struggles are real. We believe within each of us is the strength to conquer and a purpose to be accomplished. We rely upon the source of our faith as we address every area of a woman’s life, knowing that if we embrace both Grit and Grace women can and will change the world.

Why We Started.....

The Grit and Grace Project was launched to bridge the marketplace of Christian principles with the needs of real life women. In everything we do, our intent is to provide an easy to read and understood approach to all of our subjects. This is not a “Christian Website,” although we are women of faith. We are determined to write in a relatable format that will help women navigate life. The core of our pieces should be instructive, entertaining, and relatable. Our hope is that by doing so we are building a relationship that will enable us to have the privilege of sharing our faith, and asking about theirs. Think of our site as offering DIY’s for life, with our personal experiences thrown in.


Life & Culture – Addressing the shifting culture, health, beauty, work, money, current topics and trends.

Relationships – How to achieve successful relationships—from dating and marriage to friendship, family, and single life, using wisdom gained through personal stories, adding data, how-tos and tips.

Motherhood – Encouragment and information on successful motherhood—every age and every stage—offering practical advice, heartfelt and funny stories, practical help from one mom to another.

Purpose – How you found purpose in relationships, career, motherhood, volunteering, creative outlets. Also articles on non-profit organizations that are serving the greater good to encourage women to look outside their own lives.

Faith – This is our truest source of grit and grace. Looking for articles portraying how a personal relationship with God can be found in everyday life, both the good times as well as the difficult. Merging life with faith, pulling directly from the Bible with at least one appropriate reference.

About You ...

  • You are a Christian woman who believes that life is equal parts grit and grace.
  • You possess a passion for writing, can communicate and connect with women of all ages and stages.
  • You desire to grow as a writer, creating thoughtful, well-written articles with research and information avoiding Christian clichés and verbiage. Articles that will help, encourage and uplift women.

  • Above all else, you strive that what you do and say is framed in grace: “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back” (Luke 6:37-38, NLT).
