I’m Cori. Entrepreneur mom, newly-minted super wife-y, and writer chick teetering on the edges of grace.

I master it every once in awhile, but then BOO… I trip right over the edge and grace somehow eludes me altogether.

Life happens, I sweet talk myself into trouble, and there goes all my good intentions and fumbling attempts to “get it right”.

I curse.

I get mad.

I don’t always respond to situations in a God-like manner. (Hey, I’m human!)

But it doesn’t mean I give up and throw in the towel on living my life well.

I’m dogged like that.

Sound familiar?

We’re all on this crazy life journey together. We might run on divergent paths, but it’s a sure bet you can find similarities to yourself in others, if you only look hard enough and attempt to walk a step or two in their shoes.

They call it empathy, or so I’m told!

Thank heaven Big G (that’s God, not Google) had empathy for me, or that little thing called grace might be something I never took the time to try and find!

It’s by HIS GOOD GRACE that I am the woman I am today, flawed and all. I’m not perfect. So far from it in fact, it could almost be funny. (Almost.) I go to church every Sunday and I curse like a sailor every Monday. (Not really, but the occasional bleep bleep does slip free!)

But I’ll tell you, a life without grace (even in all its inept glory) is just not a life worth having… at least not in my book.

And one final message… this is a quote from one of my favorite songs courtesy of Sidewalk Prophets and it speaks to me SO much. Hopefully it speaks to you too.

Be strong in the Lord
And never give up hope
You’re gonna do great things
I already know
God’s got His hand on You
So don’t live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But don’t forget why you’re here
Take your time and pray
These are the words I would say
