A giveaway!

Source: etsy.com via Melanie on Pinterest


I want to introduce you to someone special.
Her name is Tiffany and she has a beautiful shop on Etsy called Grace for Grace.

When I stumbled across Grace for Grace I fell in love!
I wanted everything!!!!
Browse around and pick out some of your favorites.
If you are like me, you will fall in love as well.

Even better when you get to know Tiffany you will fall in love with her as well.
She has a kind heart and a sweet spirit.
She is trusting God when it isn’t easy.
Here is her story.

I'm Tiffany, the artist behind Grace for Grace. I've been a happy wife for 7 years and a proud mommy for 3 1/2 years. 



Grace for Grace has been such a blessing to me and my family. The name Grace for Grace came to me back in 2005 when I used to make jewelry. (FYI, painting has NEVER been on my list of favorite creative things to do! Little did I know!!) I came across John 1:16 in the NKJV which says, "And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace." In the NIV, it reads, "From the fullness of His grace, we have received one blessing after another." One blessing after another!!!!!! This pretty much sums it all up for me!! Despite losing my teaching job in 2010, despite the depression that came from losing sight of His purpose in my life, and despite all other distractions that often attack a young mom and her family, HE has always been good. HE has always been God. As much as I've tried to plan out my life according to what I've wanted, His plan and His will always supersedes any navigation that I may try to control. As a new shop owner, pursuing this opportunity full-time, out of obedience and also out of necessity to help support my family, I've had to trust and lean on Him more than ever.



Seeking His will for this little shop of mine has shown me what it truly means to surrender. Surrendering everything to Him and His will, not mine, has helped me to recognize his constant provision in my life. In my family's life. We're living simply. We've had lots of sacrifices to make. And because of this, I now have a greater understanding of the verse,
 "In everything, give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18

 I'm so thankful and so incredibly humbled. Thank you Melanie for allowing me to share a little bit about how the Lord is working in my life!

From His heart, to my heart, to yours.....I hope that you are encouraged. Our God is an awesome God. :)

Tiffany’s story is encouraging to me that God is awesome, even in our difficult times! I hope if encourages you today!
