Grit and Grace for All the Single Ladies

Relationships and their various roles can be a challenge. Relationships with men… even more challenging.  As women, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of defining ourselves by our relationship status. But at The Grit and Grace Project, we believe you are much more than who you are with. Finding yourself single may have come with a difficult road or past, or maybe this is a season you’ve grown used to (and even love!)… either way, if you find yourself here today divorced, widowed, or just unable to find “the one,” you’re not alone. We hope these articles written by other women who are walking the same road bring you encouragement.
