What A Blessing To Meet You

Thank you for visiting Pearls and Grace! I am a stay at home Mother of five children whom I refer to here very often as my gifts. I have been parenting for nineteen years and have loved every minute of it. Even the difficult times. If you read this blog for more than five minutes you will also see that I love the Lord with all of my heart. Mainly because it took me more than half my life to realize that He loves me and most importantly that I am His Pearl.  My years of parenting my oldest daughter as a single Mother would have gone a lot smoother if I had known those simple truths. But not knowing coupled with a lot of adversity is what gave me my testimony.  Looking back now, I am so grateful. It's what motivates me to edify, lift, support and encourage others. A tremendous honor in this life I call my own.
I started this blog as a way to encourage others. I also started it as a place to write. I love to write. I mean I love it. I also love photography and love to encourage God's precious women!
My passion for those three things allowed me to give birth to Pearls and Grace. I thought if I could encourage even one -this blog was worth my time. If even one gets the revelation knowledge of who she is and how much He loves her then this blog is worth my time. If even one woman turns her heart back toward Him again- then it's worth it. If even one would be inspired or encouraged - then it's worth it. I never dreamed that it would actually happen. I just so desperately wanted to share what I have learned so that others would have a source of encouragement.  I also wanted to share what He has done in my life. It is really something.
Most would never believe the adversity that I have lived through.  I am full of gratitude for it.
You will see that for yourself while visiting here. I write from the heart. My prayer is that you would find hope, encouragement and inspiration here but most importantly that you would
find Him.
You are His Pearl.....walk in that truth.
Pearls and Grace
