When I first began this blog, I had Gracie sign on as an author. I knew that she had things to say that would be a blessing to the Body of Christ.
Her first article, “Learning to Speak the Word” is still the most viewed post on this blog. It is read by someone almost everyday, according to my stats page.
When we share in the mornings after our individual time in the Word, her insights into a passage are always an inspiration to me. I just don’t see the way she sees. I love hearing what she gets from the Lord.
She often sees what is not written, and that helps my understanding of a particular passage, adding color for this otherwise “Dr. Dry-As-Dust” teacher.
However, her contributions were too few and far between.
As she has been going through her healing from a traumatic past, I have encouraged her to write publicly about her process, with no success. Then the Noreaster put out a call for Storm Stories. I pressured Gracie to join in, and, thankfully she gave in.
Writing her story gave her the impetus to write even more.
I had hinted more than once that she should have her own blog so that she could post at any time the mood struck. (I didn’t like her being under my shadow. She has her own light that needs to shine for all to see.)
I must be getting better at being an encourager, because she has given in to this request also. (Might be ’cause she loves me 🙂 )
Gracie has started her own blog called Gracie’s Quest.
I look forward to how the Lord will use this new addition to the blogosphere.
Our virtual community is growing.
Give her a visit and share the love.
