We’re Celebrating 200 This Grit and Grace Life Podcast Episodes

The One Where We're Celebrating 200 Podcast Episodes

We’re halfway through 2022, which means one thing: We’ve officially reached 200 podcast episodes of This Grit and Grace Life!

Darlene Brock (our president and co-founder) and Julie Bender (our podcast co-host) have tag-teamed on this venture since 2017, bringing you episodes with some very special guests—like Rebecca St. James, Mandisa and Rachel Cruze—and some fireside chat-esque conversations from the heart.

With every episode we brainstorm and schedule, we think about you. We read your comments on social media and listen to your responses to our published articles to see what felt needs women are experiencing. (Have some more ideas for what you’d like to hear from us? DM us on Instagram, send us a message over Facebook, or email us at info@thegritandgraceproject.org). 

The conversations flowing to your podcast player every Tuesday are the result of our desire to answer all the questions you have about raising your kids; your faith in good times and bad; your marriage; your purpose; and your feelings and responses to cultural issues.

Last year, we revamped the podcast with the goal of offering concrete, practical steps and takeaways that you can implement in your daily life. This way, you weren’t walking away empty-handed, but with the tools needed to conquer your challenges and pursue your purpose more intently than before.

Nothing makes our little team happier than knowing that we were able to help answer your questions and reassure you amid your worries; if these podcasts gave you even a glimmer of hope or encouragement that you didn’t have before you listened, then we hit our target.
