Are You a Strong Woman of Grit and Grace? – 072

This Grit and Grace Life is a podcast for strong women and those who want to be. After several conversations with friends and hearing from readers of The Grit and Grace Project online magazine, co-hosts Darlene and Julie realized that you might not be so sure you have this inner strength at all. Or, maybe you’re unclear of what exactly makes a woman strong. In this week’s episode, they explore what a strong woman looks like, what qualities she possesses, and society’s view of empowerment, even if seeking to be strong contradicts her faith. At The Grit and Grace Project, we know that you have what it takes to walk through life’s highs and lows with both grit and grace. And your hosts hope that this half hour will encourage you to become a woman who walks in this confidence!

They laugh, cry and encourage each other to face the next year with even more grit and grace, and hope that you do too!

And as promised, here’s the picture of Julie in her marching band days!
