Let me introduce myself. My name is Grace Deveraux and I created this blog to encourage and uplift women all across the globe, from all walks of life.
I’ve been through quite a bit in my lifetime — good, bad, and ugly. I’ve been hurt by folk that should have had my back and held me down. I have scars from both emotional and verbal abuse, which left me a very broken woman during my lowest point in life. Because of my brokenness, there was a time when I didn’t even want to live — but God!
I thought my past wounds were closed but one day the scabs fell off, which caught me completely off guard, as the wounds reopened. It was then that my past and present worlds collided, and let’s just say, “it wasn’t a pretty sight.” I sat in the same spot on my sofa for four days before I was able to get it together somewhat. Boy, did this situation open my eyes as I realized there was still much more work that needed to be done and that I hadn’t arrived as I initially thought. This was extremely difficult as I “struggled” to regain my footing and battled with the situation. What I’ve learned is that we have to be completely honest with ourselves as we look inward, no matter how painful it is because this is where we get our healing and how we, ultimately, become delivered.
I have cried many days and prayed many nights, but in my “valley experiences,” I gained and am continuing to gain the victory, and so will you.
As we take this journey together, we will shed tears, we will laugh but, most importantly, we will become “victorious” over our situations.
