To Know Grace

Hey 👋 to all my new readers!
My name is Grace. I’m a 30-something year old #PhillyRicanJawn 😉, wife💍 and mother with a blended family of 7 children combined: 3 t(w)eens 👦🏻👦👧+ 1 pair of twins 👭🏽 + 1 angel 🙏🏽👼🏽❄ + 1 rainbow 🌈👶.

I have survived a relationship of domestic violence, experienced life as a single mother, met and married the man who accepted me and my children – flaws and all, suffered the loss of a child, and sustained pregnancy after loss.

Through it all I have grown personally and established myself professionally.
I changed careers from social work to cosmetology in order to follow my passion of helping others. Over time I decided to expand my business to include health and wellness as a full service to my clients to be healthy on the inside and look great on the outside.

As a business owner I help others become physically and financially fit. It isn’t always easy. Some days are easy, many days are challenging. But I continue because my purpose is greater than me. It’s about serving others. It’s about being an example to my children that anything and everything is possible with God.

I could have given up and given in long ago, when the days seemed hopeless and nothing seemed to work. But God has plans for me. To prosper me and not to harm me. To give me hope and a future. (JEREMIAH 29:11)

I share this brief bio so that you, my follower, can know that I wouldn’t be me if it weren’t for The One I follow.👣
Whatever you may be going through, never forget that Your Creator has a plan and a purpose for YOU!

#MCM Men Crushing Mondays…for Their Ladies

I’m all about empowering women but I admit I’ve been slacking in my focus of male followers. (Have I ever really focused on male followers? If not, my apologies!) In honor of #MCM (Men Crushing Mondays) I’ll be a little more man focused. If you haven’t already heard of the #ManDare, it’s all about helping the men in our lives improve themselves to become the best men they can be. More details can be found here.  Each Monday there is a new #DareOfTheWeek.  This week’s Dare is probably a personal favorite of mine… (Ladies, you’re going to love this!)

☆Treat Your Lady Like the Queen She Is☆

Yes, you read that right, guys! Take your wife, fiance, girlfriend on a date. Whether it’s that movie she’s been talking about, a fancy restaurant or a simple dinner and movie at home all planned and prepared by you!  Oh, you aren’t married, engaged or with a significant other? How about your mom, aunt, sister, cousin or neighbor? Every woman in your life deserves to feel appreciated.  If money is tight, remember it’s now about how much you spend but how much effort is put into making her feel appreciated and special.

Don’t forget to share her reaction as well as why she is so special to you on your social media platforms using #ManUp #ManDare #LivingLegendary. And remember this dare should be an everyday thing.  😉 

So, fellas, how are you going to treat that special lady this week? Share in the comments below!

Top 3 Skincare Products I Use Every Day

My combination sensitive skin + this 90° weather would’ve had me overly shiny and probably breaking out.

But using my favorite skincare products from revealhealthybeauty•com keeps my skin in check.

I remember buying and trying so many different products that seemed to work at first only to cause more problems. 

I started using this trio about two years ago and haven’t had a problem since.

Cleanser: soap-free gel

Toner: alcohol-free pore minimizer

Preventage: nutrient-rich moisturizer

The bonus? I can use the Cleanser as a body wash.

Do you have skincare concerns that you can’t seem to find a fix for?

What are your go-to products for your face?
