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.
We’ll talk about things like how to have a more intentional Bible study time, or how to get started with spiritual disciplines like keeping the Sabbath. 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 support women seeking to find balance in the busy, deepen their faith, and instill joy and love in their homes, lives, and blogs by providing encouraging and inspiring content and valuable resources.
I’m so excited to get to know you! Let me tell you a bit about the voice behind the blog:
I’m a 40-something wife & mom living in Greensboro, Georgia, on Lake Oconee, with my husband of 12 years, (almost) 18-year old daughter, and my mom, along with our four dogs. It’s quite the house full!
I work part-time as the Communications Director at my church, using the same skills I’ve developed through more than ten years of blogging to help grow the kingdom!
Some of my favorite things: sweet tea (of course!), cows (they’re so cute!), travel (literally anywhere!), tattoos (I have 7 & counting!), and being on our boat on the lake as much as possible (it’s a dream come true!).
I’m super passionate about helping women discover the love of Christ, learn how to study the Bible and actually understand it, simplify their lives through proper planning and organization, and reminding them to have more fun in their daily lives!
I pray you’ll be inspired, encouraged, and feel love and joy through my blog posts, videos, emails, and social media posts. Feel free to touch base with me and tell me about you!
