This weekend, we heard about someone we actually know who has been diagnosed with COVID 19. She is not mildly sick. She is very ill and on a respirator. She is not local, but from another chapter in our lives. When we had a family member tested for the virus, it was...
Right now, the world is going through a very stressful time with this new virus that is a killer. No, it doesn’t kill everyone who gets it. Often, the people who get it don’t even feel very sick, but there are some who do. They get very sick and nearly...

In 2015, my husband had a stroke which changed our lives on many levels. I waited the required year after to see what the final outcome of his recovery would be, and when the time was up, I experienced a very dark time despite the fact that he had improved considerably.
I began seeking out how to find hope for a person who is scared, overwhelmed and brokenhearted. Because I ran the gamut of all those feelings. Sometimes I still do.

But let me back up a bit and tell you a little about myself. I am a wife of just over 50 years to a now retired pastor, a mom of 3 daughters who are grown and married with 7 grands, and an RN.
We have lived in a variety of places in our years of ministry including Jamaica, FL, TX, IL and now AL near one of our daughters.
I’ve been blogging since 2010. This summer, I changed the name of my blog from GrittyGrace.com to MarthaGrimmBrady.com.
