You’re probably wondering, why is this blog titled “Grace Grows”? Well, let me tell you a little about it! First of all, my daughter’s middle name is Grace. When Luke and I got married, we already started talking about baby names before we even started talking about having kids. We decided we wanted to use fruits of the Spirit for any middle names for girls. When we found out we were pregnant and having a girl, it took us awhile to choose a first name (our daughter’s name is Emmalynn, and we call her Emmy for short, maybe I’ll write another blog post about choosing her name). But we knew her middle name would be Grace. I felt this overwhelming grace from God in giving us this child. We are so undeserving of this blessing from God.
Grace had become a theme in my life. Any time I have messed up, taken the wrong path, not listened to God or rejected him…EVERY TIME God gives me grace. Grace to get back up, and run back to him and he loves me regardless of my faults. I’m always constantly amazing by how much MORE grace God can give me every time. His grace for me grows every day. Another reason I chose “Grace Grows” for the title of this blog is because I created a hashtag on instagram where I’m documenting the journey of Emmy growing up! #emmygracegrows (check it out!)
