Don't Despise Small Beginnings

That verse in the above title became a mantra between my friend and mentor Sheila Davis, myself, and a bunch of ladies seated around tables. God gave Sheila a vision for a women's ministry named "Women of Grace." Through family transitions, job changes, a boat load of health issues, Women of Grace has found secure footing and I want to share it with you.

Sheila and the Women of Grace team still minister in Northeast Ohio, but they also are taking God's love and words of wisdom to women online. You can find their ministry at Women of Grace Bridging The Gap.

At our blog here we notice that our readers might not leave comments (although we'd welcome them as long as they are respectful) they come from all around the world. We don't boast big bloggy numbers, but we boast an amazing, huge, miraculous God.

The Women of Grace Bridging the Gap site does the same thing. They are in small beginnings that they are thankful for.

I encourage you to check the entire site out!
