Welcome to a Place of Hope

I’m Martha. I’m so glad you came to visit. This is a place for women who are scared, overwhelmed, or brokenhearted. One thing we can find together is hope. The Biblical kind that is confident expectation in the person and promises of GOD!
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.
We all need the encouragement of GOD’s Word to remind us of who GOD is, what His promises are and how certain our hope is in Him! It is not because of how strong our faith is but because of who the One is in whom we place it!
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.
