Keeping it Personal with Martha

About the Author

Martha is a mother to 3 married daughters, a grandma to 6 grandchildren, and a wife to 1 retired pastor. During their 40 years in ministry–either in the US or overseas–she became passionate about helping women understand the grace of God and what it truly is! She believes life is not about me fixing myself up enough to go to God for forgiveness of minor, petty mistakes. It is about God, reaching down to me while I am still a mess. He comes to me before I am cleaned up, loving me and providing a way, through His grace and forgiveness. God’s grace is involved in the grit of our lives, not just the glamor…fortunately! She is a nurse and enjoys writing on her blog.
