Hi! I’m Brittany. I’m a child of God, Brian’s wife and I love to write.
Here is my story:
It all started many, many years ago with a little girl who loved to write. She hid her writing away in diaries and notebooks except for on rare occasions when she shared funny stories and poems with her family. She wrote for enjoyment and she wrote because she loved to write.
As the years passed by she began to write more often and discovered that she had the skills to be a writer. She wrote plays for her friends to perform at school and received high marks on each essay she turned in. Soon she was off to college where she studied to be an English teacher. Surely, teaching others to write would be a wonderful career for her! If only she didn’t change her mind.
After college came 3 long months in the Philippines caring for children with whom she couldn’t even speak. As she worked this these children she wrote. She wrote to inform others of what she was doing and to remember each precious day and child, but mostly she wrote as a plea to others to help the orphan children with whom she was falling in love.
Once back in the States she dreamed of the life of a missionary and so she packed her bags and headed to Seminary. Here she had many opportunities to practice her writing skills as she studied missions and theology. Though they weren’t the most ‘fun’ essays to write she learned so much while she studied.
Then the girl who loved to write meet a boy who made her love life. He was everything that she ever imagined she needed and she fell in love with Him quickly. When she married him in April of 2015 everything in her life changed as she moved once again to a new city. She knew that due to health issues she wouldn’t be going overseas again as a missionary. But that didn’t mean that she couldn’t be a missionary from where she was. She found work as a church secretary and picked up writing as if she had never put it down.
In September of 2015 Grace, Love, Life was founded as a place for woman to find hope and encouragement as they seek to put God first in their lives and marriages. Grace, Love, Life isn’t a full time job as of now, but the girl who loves to write hopes that maybe someday it will be.
A little bit about Grace, Love, Life
Grace, Love, Life is a Christian lifestyle blog that is helping women build godly homes by practicing grace and celebrating love. Whether you are a newlywed or have been happily married for many years I hope to encourage you to place God in the center of your life and marriage. I strongly believe that couples need quality time together to flourish and so I will be sharing a variety of date night idea on this blog as well.
