My name is Elaine Stores and I am the writer behind ThisGratefulMama.com.
I love to write.
And I have a heart to serve women – especially other moms. My goal is to encourage women like you to take the truth of God’s uncommon grace into every area of your life.
I haven’t arrived, and believe none of us will on this side of heaven. God isn’t finished with me yet, so I share how He is changing me – right in the midst of every day life. You’ll find the real-me here – including the failures and mistakes, alongside victories.
Women wear many hats. We are God’s beloved, wives, moms, daughters, sisters, neighbors, co-workers, friends, and more. As women, we desire to serve God and love our people fiercely, but don’t have it all figured out yet. We make mistakes, forget our worth, and sometimes we get so busy doing good things, we lose our focus on important things.
That’s where grace comes in.
God’s grace is uncommon – an undeserved gift, freely given, just because God loves us. But we struggle to take this gift into daily life. We have a hard time accepting it when we fail, and extending it to others. We need to be reminded of grace every single day. Then we can truly be grateful, battle perfectionism, remember our worth, set our priorities, and live abundantly.
