Hi! I’m Grace.

Welcome to my little corner of the Internet, where we seek to delight in God and in the beautiful things He has given us. I’m so glad you’re here!

I started blogging in my freshman year of high school, driven by a desire to share my faith and what I was learning with other Christian teens, hoping to encourage them in what can often be a hostile world. That blog grew and developed over the years, seeing many changes of content and style, but always focused on that fundamental mission: to explore what it looks like to live for God through the teen years.

As I moved into college, I wasn’t sure what direction to take my writing, or whether I should even continue blogging. I felt I had outgrown my initial target audience and niche. And that led me here, to the tagline this blog now carries: Living a Life of Loveliness.

I write about finding beauty. Seeing the beauty of God, seeking to appreciate His beauty as it is reflected in the world around us, and then displaying that beauty in the things that we create. There is a loveliness in this world, loveliness that reflects its Creator and the glory of the world to come. I hope you’ll join me in seeking to find that loveliness in both the extraordinary and the everyday.

      Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here (especially being a Lunar chronicles fan, haha…)! And I definitely agree with you about Cress. I really liked Cinder as well, but Cress was my favorite.

    Hey, I found your blog from the Rebelution. I read through some of your old posts and really, really enjoyed them. The Internet is such a cool thing (well, sometimes), how you can impact so many people! I’m also a major introvert (lol), bookworm, writer, and I used to be a pianist. I subscribed and I’m looking forward to getting your new posts! (:

    Hey Grace! I just read your post about teenagers and reading, and I think you are completely right. We just had a book fair at our school and I saw a friend of mine there, so I proceeded to ask her about what books she could possibly be getting. She replied with: “Well, I haven’t found any books-I don’t really need any- and I don’t really read….” I think the excuses now a days are:
    “I don’t like to read.”
    or
    “I don’t need any new books.”

    Hope all is well!
    Love,
    P
