STYLE STORY: FREEDOM IN GRACE


Grace in Style.

Many may question the name of my blog. Grace is not my name, but grace is the greatest gift that I have ever received and I want to share that with you through this space. My hope is to style my life with grace and with the love and joy it is accompanied by. 

As a broken human, I am far from perfect. But in my imperfection, that's where God's grace comes in. Jesus didn't die on the cross and defeat sin for the perfect, but for the imperfect. Through faith in Him and His sacrifice and love for us, we are set free from our sins and made perfect again. We don't have to do anything to earn grace (there's nothing we could do to earn grace), God has given it to us freely because He loves us.

But that's not the end of the story. As my favorite Bible verse reminds me:

"You were called to live in freedom. 
But do not use your freedom to satisfy your own desires; 
instead, serve one another humbly in love." 
-- Galatians 5:13

This is where my heart lies. As a receiver of grace, I hope to extend it often to others as well. It's not always easy, but it is what we are called to do. And it always brings a smile to my face and uplifts my soul to see others sharing grace. One of my favorite brands, 31Bits, does this so well with artisans in Uganda and Bali. 

You may already know about my affinity for this company. It is not easy being an artisan in developing countries especially when facing adversity. But 31Bits helps these men and women create sustainable jobs for themselves. They not only give a way for the artisans to provide for themselves and their families, but also share with them the eternal freedom and wealth they can have in God's grace.

This summer, 31Bits created the most beautiful handbag line and I am in love! I purchased the woven drum bag and paired it with simple metal 31Bits jewelry and a beautiful dress from SheIn. This entire look is perfect for summer wedding season or summer events.
