Curated digital space created by women, for women to foster community in all walks and stages of life
Nashville, Tenn. (October 15, 2015) — Today, marks the launch of The Grit & Grace Project, an online movement devoted to "building a community of women who believe that life's challenges neither defeat nor define them," helmed by author and entrepreneur Darlene Brock. Created for women of all ages and walks of life, the online destination will feature regularly updated content as contributors share tips, stories, how-tos, encouragement and much more.
"I have come to realize life is a long-term project, and what it requires is our gender’s most valuable traits – grit and grace,” explains Brock. "I am on a mission to change the way ladies think about themselves. We are so much more than the roles we play, than the attitudes we are told we must hold. We are strong by our very nature, capable of possessing the very definition of grit and offering a vast amount of grace.”
With themes ranging from surviving life challenges to the holiday season and new beginnings along with friendships and families, content comes from diverse writers, ranging from single, married, with children, without, formerly homeless, entrepreneurs, from small towns to metro living.
