Sweet Tea & Saving Grace has been online for a long time. Before the blog was even called “Sweet Tea & Saving Grace”, I was producing content in the form of blog posts, first along with photography on KThompson Studios, then under the name “One Tough Mother”. It was after a literal come-to-Jesus moment in my bathroom that I rebranded to what is now known as “Sweet Tea & Saving Grace”.

The content on this site has evolved tremendously over time as well. When I started blogging, I was newly remarried after a nasty divorce, mom to an elementary school kid, living in a rental house, working a full-time job I hated. Now, I’m nearly twelve years into a beautiful marriage, raising a daughter just graduated from high school, running my own business from home, and living in our dream home on a lake in Georgia along with my retired mother.

Since my rebrand in 2014, one thing has remained constant – the sharing of my faith and my transparency about life and work. In fact, my faith has only gotten stronger over the years. And even though I’ve taken many breaks from blogging due to life and business, this has always been my home on the internet.

I want Sweet Tea & Saving Grace to feel like home for you, too. 

We’ll talk about things like how to have a more intentional Bible study time, or how to have a more impactful prayer life. We’ll also talk about things like planners and organization, books we love to read, tending and cultivating houseplants, loving our families and friends, and even a little bit of behind-the-scenes into running a business from home.

The mission of Sweet Tea & Saving Grace is to inspire women to create a deeper relationship with Christ through Bible study tools and prayer, design a balanced and fulfilling life with time management and organization tips, and give themselves permission to step away from the hustle and enjoy more white space.
