About Grace Sandra

    His best advice (encouraging for me!)

    He tells me to, “keep going, keep writing because at one point you will touch on something really big, really important…and it’s going to make a huge difference.”

    Good luck, Grace. I love your writing!

      Anita, yeah, it is great advice no matter what the field! My friend Cindy was also very encouraged & inspired in thinking about her film as well. Thanks so much for your encouragement, Anita!!

    I love the image of focusing on the field one is called to plow. What an apt image. A friend of mine has a similar saying. She’ll say, “that’s not my farm” to infer that she’s not going to get involved in someone else’s situation. I’m glad for your great experience. I’m not Sheryl Sandberg or Brene Brown but I am very proud of how you extended yourself beyond what you thought possible.

      awww shucks, thanks Una. You know me, so I value you more than Sheryl or Brene’ any old day!!! thanks so much, sis.

      yeah, that image tho! It was helpful for me to think about it as well….since I love having my hands in EVERY project & new shiny thing…. lessons learned….

    Dave was right, people read your blog because you are raw and authentic. I also read because as a 53 yr old black woman, I am still struggling to believe I am good enough. Your words encourage me to hold on and keep pressing on to one day be able to finally minister to God’s daughters who suffer from low self-esteem, and unbelief in their great value and worth. Slowly I am finding my voice, which I hope will be full of His words of truth, comfort, and authenticity.
    Yes, Gracie, please keep writing and telling your raw, authentic truth.
