Welcome to MarthaGrimmBrady.com
In uncertain times, our hope is based
not on wishes or blind faith,
but our confident assurance is based on
the Person & promises of GOD.
I’m Martha Grimm Brady. I have been married 50+ years to a now retired pastor and have 3 grown, married daughters with 7 grandchildren ages 7-16. I am a retired RN. We have lived in Florida, Jamaica, Texas and Illinois during our years of active ministry. In 2013, we moved to Huntsville, AL to be near one of our daughters in our retirement.

In 2015, my husband had a stroke. We are both adjusting to the realities of that change. It did not affect him physically, but turned some of his memory and awareness of time askew. 2017 brought two more smaller strokes. Since that time, I have struggled with some very dark times as I have watched the changes that have taken place in my husband. I have experienced being scared, overwhelmed and being broken hearted at different times over the past few years.
I have learned during these years that I am not invisible to GOD and He is embracing me in my weakness during these difficult times as we struggle to find our new normal. This good news is not only for older women, but few write to them specifically. The rest of you can listen in on the conversation.
What’s in it for me?
You will find hope and encouragement as you read what I write here and share from GOD’s Word. Many of you struggle with health issues, caregiving, losses of all kinds including spouses, and concerns regarding adult children and grandchildren. And I have only scratched the surface of the list!
The good news is that GOD cares for you and your concerns even more than any other human ever will. As you face times of weakness and even frailty, you will see that you will feel GOD’s embrace more than ever. His comforting words are, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” (II Corinthians 12:9 NLT)
