Hello! I’m Megan Grace. I love writing, books, Jesus, and coffee shops. I am a firm believer in the importance of hugs, laughter, singing loudly, book stores, baking cookies, and watching the sunrise. Coffee is always a good idea. Donuts are my favorite dessert. I am a lover of all things cozy and bright. I believe in real conversations, encouragement in the Truth, and deep friendships. But the foundation, the core, and the biggest part of my life is my relationship with God. I believe that this life is not the end, and that we have been created with meaning and purpose, a purpose that He had in place specifically for each one of us before we were born. I believe that we all have God-given talents and gifts to help other people and use for His glory, and I personally feel led to do that through this blog. I believe in the importance of community. My prayer is that as young women, we will come alongside our sisters in Christ and point them to the Truth, to encourage and help each other as we become rooted deeper in Him every day.
A little bit of my testimony: I was raised in a Christian home, but Jesus became real to me when I was about six years old. I heard the Gospel while sitting in church one Sunday, and it struck a chord. I knew that if Jesus would give his life and suffer for me, when I was living in sin, the least I could do was give him mine. I really began to take my faith seriously when I was around fifteen years old. Through the years, He has been working on my heart, refining me, and making me into who He wants me to be. I am by no means perfect, and I am not even close to having it all together (because let’s be honest, who does?), but He is guiding me day by day to love more, to rest in Him, lean on Him for courage and strength, and to surrender myself to His guidance. I have battled fear since I was young, and there have been many times when it has held me back and kept me from pursuing important opportunities. But through the struggle I have learned that yes, I am so very weak, but my Savior is powerful. I am learning to let go. I am learning to replace the fear with faith, the doubt with trust, and the dread with hope. But most importantly, I am learning to give my frustrations and fears over to the only One who can handle them. Because that is the only way to truly experience the freedom He gives. Without Him, I would be a fearful, hopeless mess, but with Him, I know that I have a future, that I am loved, and that I am never alone. I am an imperfect, messy child of God who is ever learning, seeking Him, and becoming rooted deeper in who He is and what He has said about me. Because that is where my true identity is found.
I am so glad that you took the time to stop by this little corner of the internet! I hope you grab a cup of coffee and stick around, because I would love to be friends! But more importantly, I pray that God will use my messy words to meet you where you are and encourage you to draw closer to Him, because that is the heartbeat behind my writing.
