Today we say goodbye to 2016 and welcome a new year filled with new possibilities, new hopes, and new dreams. Here at the Grace and Strength Lifestyle, we'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has made this community of Christian women a place of strength, hope, and new beginnings for so many around the nation and around the world. Our sincere prayer for you is that this year would be filled to overflowing with the richness of God's love and grace in your lives.

April's Story: Grace. How many of us really know what that word means? To me it means receiving something we don't deserve. My pastor, Dr. Chris Stephens, describes grace as "God meeting you at your greatest time of need". I came to a crossroads in my faith several months ago, where I knew I was either going to continue down a path of apathy, and a weakened belief in what my God can do, or choosing to run down the path of discipline and hope. I'm so glad I chose the latter.
And so God is the author and perfecter of our lives...It all began with the fifth, maybe sixth, outfit I had tried on that morning. If only we could all wear yoga pants! I had come to the realization that I was sick of feeling like this day in and day out. "Ugh, nothing fits. Nothing looks right. Nothing feels comfortable. Nothing except yoga pants." As a fulltime teacher and mother of three young children, yoga pants are not an option as I fly out the door with a side of peanut butter toast.
When I encountered Grace and Strength I was at a place in life where I feel I was being broken down to be built back up. For several years I had been in the pit of severe clinical depression, and as that cloud was lifting I was starting to see how God had worked during that time to reveal strongholds in my life I would have seen or addressed without the illness.
