Life with Grace serves to illustrate how our relationship with God is a mirror image of the parent-child relationship in its' ideal form. Not “just for moms” or intended as a parenting tool, its purpose is to help each of us embrace God as our extravagantly loving, fiercely protective, epically heroic, gently admonishing, and generously giving Father.

Life with Grace hopes to build an opportunity for everyone to see God in everyday moments--- Moments that will edify, encourage and inspire each of them in a spiritual adventure to know God personally, to love him deeply, pursue him passionately, and serve him daily.
