Welcome to the Unwrapping His Grace Community!  We are so thrilled you stopped by to visit!  So come on in, put your feet up, get comfortable…make yourself at home.

Unwrapping His Grace is about getting real…very real…with the Lord…ourselves…and with each other!  It is about learning to handle our hearts and lives with Grace.  It is about stopping trying to live up to impossibly high standards of perfection that we have set for ourselves as Christian women.  It’s about realizing just how real God’s Grace is and how much He wants to be present and really work in the everyday messiness of our lives.

It is a very real, very powerful gift that is filled with layer after layer of Grace. What is amazing is the more we get to know God through His Word and spending precious time with Him, the more we fall in love with Him. And the more we fall in love with and trust Him the more we find we can surrender the real stuff…the tough stuff…the messy stuff…and our need to control.  In return, He will transform us with His incredible, life changing Grace!

Our heavenly Father takes the bumps and bruises, dents and scratches of our ordinary lives and transforms them into an extraordinary work of beauty that is evidence of His power and love. God uses what the world deems as unusable to accomplish the impossible.  And then through that relationship and His Grace carries us through the tragedy and difficulties when we think we cannot possibly go on…He is there and makes the impossible possible!

“Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT

Sharing our journeys here at Unwrapping His Grace is a place where we will be “boasting of our weakness” as Paul so visually puts it in his letter to the Corinthians. So we hope you will join me–Mary Joy, recently widowed (1 year+), and me–Gina Marie, married 11 yrs., as we walk our messy journeys of grace-filled living, learning, healing & homeschooling.

And while you are here, we pray that you will find some sense of encouragement and be blessed as you find nuggets of truth that God wants all of us to remember whether you are single, married, widowed, divorced…whether you have children, don’t have children, or are enjoying treasured grandchildren. We would love to hear your stories of how God is leading you to unwrap His Grace in your own unique journey!

It is our prayer and mission for Unwrapping His Grace to be a safe place for real women who hunger to know and experience God’s Grace more in their lives to gather together and become community.  A community of women walking this journey of discovering and living with His grace in the midst of the messiness and joy of real life.

Will you join us on this journey?

Unwrapping His Grace,

Mary Joy and Gina Marie
