Hi, I’m Cookie and I’m so thankful you took a minute to see what Grace Within the Race is all about. I started this blog over the summer of 2014 without much purpose or direction, and surprise surprise, I only created two posts in nearly a year. So rather than use this merely as a diary, vent space, or project planner….I’d like to begin a true chronicle of my journey as a wife, mother, teacher and woman of God. My hope is that perhaps my failures, victories, struggles and circumstances will inspire others to recognize the moments of God’s grace within their own daily race. Surely, learning the ropes of the blogging world whilst opening up my heart and creativity will take “baby steps”. I am by no means a writer, experienced homeschooler, or reference for Christianity. I have simply learned that through genuine connection and transparency I find the strength and courage to joyfully be myself.
So if you are interested in run on sentences about this crazy lady and her clan, I welcome you to read my posts, share your thoughts and run with me 🙂
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,” – Hebrews 12:1
