Hmmm. What to say about me? First of all, to erase any confusion, my name is Loretta, not Grace! (Although if I could pick my name I think I’d pick Grace instead.) I am wife to a husband who loves me unconditionally and mother to two active boys; seven year old ‘Gates’ and four year old ‘Indy’.

I am on a life long journey of learning what it means to love and be loved by God; of learning what it means to let his grace flow through me, unbinding the areas that hold me captive, flowing on to minister to others through me. Without his grace I would be lost; his grace gives me an identity and a place in his family.

Woven around the fabric of grace are the strands of my ordinary life. My days are never empty as I learn over and over how to parent with grace and gentleness, how to treat the earth with care (including not killing fragile garden plants), and what it means to be a friend. Through it all I am learning what it means to truly be the woman God has created. My prayer is that through my writing other women would begin to see grace moving in their lives, and that they would learn to fully embrace the identity that God has created in them in both big and small ways.
