GRACE

I don't want to hide my worldview from anyone who might come to this BLOG. It might help if you understand that I come from a faith tradition that embraces God's GRACE. It's a term that someone coming from a background like mine would understand as meaning, "to be given the gift of love when I have not earned it and do not deserve it." Neil Diamond's song, "Pretty Amazing Grace" does a good job of explaining it.

Follower's of Jesus believe that he personifies GRACE in that he was the living breathing model of God's love for humans despite the way we were mucking things up. If you have been struggling with parenting; if you have sometime's felt as a parent that you were failing or "mucking it up," take a minute and close your eyes and know that the creator of the universe loves you and offers you His GRACE. Will you receive it? It's not too late to start fresh.
