What is Grace & Truth?

Grace & Truth (a blog Link-up, Linky or Link Party) exists to point people to Jesus! We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement each and every week. It’s run by 7 Christian women. If you’re a blogger our hope is that you’ll use this space as a way to meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader our hope is that you’ll meet new bloggers that love Jesus just as much as you do! Most of all, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.

At the beginning of each new link-up week (which happens to be Friday), the Hosts will post their favorite post of the previous week, to be “featured” (see below for directions on how to be featured!).

Featured Post for Week 20

Welcome to Grace & Truth Week 20! I have still been sick; my virus morphed into something even worse, and I’ve been trying to sleep the sickness off when I’m able. The week has FLOWN for me again. Hopefully I’ll be on the mend soon. 🙂 If you’re new to Grace&Truth, welcome! If you’re a veteran, I’m so thankful you’re sticking with us! 🙂

Simplify your morning

Debbie’s “Let the Weary Rest part 2” jumped out at me. I love when I see a perfect portrait of grace. Nothing that man does, just all God’s work. LOVE IT.

Do you work so hard to please Him, to earn His favor? When you fail, (and you will), do you feel as though He is hugely disappointed and can never truly love you?

I know I struggle with the same strivings and failings as you do. Usually I flog myself for awhile and then He lifts up my downturned chin and assures me that He loves me. It’s the same stupid pattern, yet I replay it.

And then there is the temptation to appear as if I have it all together. I don’t dare show that I’m weak and broken. So I work hard to impress you. And what is ironic about it, is that you struggle in the same way. Yet, we work hard to maintain the “perfect” status. Debbie @ Notes Along the Way

You’ve gotta go read the whole post. I know it will bless you.

Congratulations, Debbie! You totally deserve it!

Jenn

I'm a Christian wife to an amazing man and a stay-at-home-teaching mom to four special & incredible boys (13.11, 12, 10, & 8). I’m messy and cluttered, but working on that (really, I am!). I’m a discouraged perfectionist and a classic procrastinator who probably has both ADD & Autism, so I tend to jump from topic to topic (and activity to activity) without notice. My Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. I’m an INFP who enjoys friends but loves to be alone. I love getting and giving hugs, and encouragement is a Spiritual gift of mine that can too-easily be turned into the weapon of discouragement, if I’m not careful. I enjoy writing, singing, words, drawing, photography, digital creations and reading. Oh, and pizza, tacos and steak. Now I’m hungry. That reminds me; I eat gluten free and try to avoid white sugar and GMOs as much as possible.  Find me on Facebook (Writer page) (Fan page) (Community group), Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+.

  1. Thank you Jenn for featuring me. Glad my blog encouraged you. It seems that many have been touched by it’s message. I read your description about yourself. I hate to do dishes too! Usually to keep myself grateful, I tell myself, “I’m thankful I have food to eat so I have dishes to wash”. It helps every time. I’d rather be outside in my flowers! Have a good weekend Jenn!
