We are a podcast for strong women and those who want to be, right? But what does it mean to be a strong woman? What defines a woman as powerful, secure, tenacious? What are practical things strong women do? Here’s what we think…

A strong woman knows she can’t do it all.
A strong woman asks for help. 
A strong woman doesn’t play games. 
A strong woman says what she means. 
A strong woman can be trusted.
 
What else do strong women do? 
 
The best way to become a woman of strength is to understand these qualities. That’s why, in this This Grit and Grace Life episode, hosts Darlene and Julie unpack what they think a strong women truly is. The two also provide you with their best advice on how you can become her, one day at a time.
