What is LedByGrace? In a way, it’s a bit of an experiment. Although this blog is brand new, it is not my first attempt at a blog, I’m sorry to say. All the rest have been, well, not that successful. Like many of you, I’m excellent at starting things. I’ll get all excited to start something new, stick with it for a few weeks, maybe a couple months…then real life kicks in and whatever that new project is falls to the wayside.
HOWEVER. I am at a point in my life where things are changing all around me. The professional, familial, social, spiritual, and mental dynamics of my life seem to be changing by the day! At times it’s overwhelming, but for the most part it’s fun, exciting, and challenging. And that’s something I want to share with you. Lately I’ve found myself becoming a manic Facebook poster. Family members and friends have gone out of their way to drop hints that they think I post too much, it makes it look like I have no life! While this is funny for the most part, it got me thinking. It would be nice to have an outlet where I could write about what’s going on in my life, whether that’s my latest crochet project, what I think about a book I just read, some funny thing that happened to me that day…do you get where this is going? 🙂 Hence, blog. I can only hope that others besides myself will find my thoughts interesting or entertaining, and that I will be blessed with the stamina to keep writing week after week without running out of steam. But even if in the end this ends up being purely a place where I can process my thoughts, I think it will have served its purpose.
What does LedByGrace mean? The name of the blog itself isn’t actually something that took a long time for me to come up with. Typically when I have to title something, my innate perfectionism rears its ugly head. See, I’m big into meaning. So if I’m gonna give something a name, it has to mean something important. But since this blog is essentially bits and pieces of my life, I wanted to pick an idea or a phrase that characterizes that life. Above all else, I strive to live a life marked by the Grace that gives my life meaning and joy and hope. I say “Grace” (and not “grace”) because I’m talking about my faith in Jesus and the undeserved favor and sacrifice He extends to the both of us in order to eradicate the eternal consequences of our sin. If you don’t know me very well, you’re bound to find out sooner rather than later that my faith defines my life; it’s what my existence is all about. So…LedByGrace. 🙂 If you ever want to know more of what I’m talking about, PLEASE, send me a message, ask me what it’s all about! I’d be more than happy to tell you.
Who writes LedByGrace? My name is Kaity, and I am lots of things. I am a young twenty-something living in Northern California. I like crochet and other crafts. I like to read. I own a female gecko named Jack. I am a college graduate. I want to learn how to play the violin someday. I watch shows like Castle and NCIS and Doctor Who and Merlin and Sherlock. I am a nerdfighter. I consider myself an old soul. I both own and use a record player. I am addicted to scarves. I am a ridiculously huge fan of Beauty and the Beast. I am a lifelong listener of Steven Curtis Chapman. I am a tea drinker but am not opposed to coffee.
And so much more. But if I told you everything, there wouldn’t be any point in the blog, right? So read on, my friend, and you will see!
