Welcome to Good Will Grace

Welcome to Good Will Grace! There are many ways to define the words goodwill and grace and here are just a few.
good*will (n.): an attitude of kindness; benevolence; cheerful acquiescence or willingness
grace (n.): favor or good will; a pleasing or attractive quality of endowment; mercy, clemency, or pardon

Before I had children, when I dreamed of having children, I knew that I wanted my children to grow up to be loving, compassionate, caring, responsible, intelligent, helpful, and graceful citizens of this world. I am in no way a perfect mother, wife, or person, but I do know that we can all grow when reminded of bits of grace.

There are so many things that I want my children to know and understand. I, now have two children and have realized how important these little life lessons are in teaching them to embrace those positive attributes and many more in this life.

Seeing the world through a child's eyes is an amazing thing. Children have innocence and an unconditional love. They have not yet been tainted by terrible things that can happen.

My son ran over to help someone he didn't know pick up some books they dropped at the library. He found such utter joy in picking out a present and drawing a picture for a little boy he doesn't know that is his age that is battling a terminal illness. He still talks about his friend that he made the train tunnel picture for. It's these little instances that can remind us all what is important in life. You know the saying "it's the little things in life that make living so grand."

People can talk about the right things to do and ways of living, however, we all must "walk the walk and talk the talk."

Good Will Grace is a place to be reminded of those life lessons, daily reminders, and bits of grace to make all of our lives better and we hope to do it in a creative and fun way.

We would love for you to join us. We are looking for "little life lessons" or bits of grace from all of you. Each day we will share one idea. You can send in suggestions, pictures, anecdotes, quotes, or even a joke. Email us your ideas and stories to We look forward to hearing from you.

We'd love for you to become a "Friend of Good Will Grace" and tell a friend. Have a great day!
