Initially, the blog was named Going For Grace and was inspired by the following verse:
“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”
2 Peter 3:18
Even though I made the business decision to transition from the Going For Grace blog name, every word in this verse is how I want to live my life. Not only do I want to bring glory to His name by using the unique qualities that He has given me, but I want to be constantly growing in His grace. I started thinking of the ways in which I try and live out God’s grace in my own life and there it was… I am always going for grace. Whether that be in the way that I treat others, the way that I carry myself, or even the type of clothes that I wear. I hope to encourage others to radiate grace in every aspect of this life.
Born in Fort Worth, Texas and raised on a farm in East Tennessee, I am a southern girl through and through. I am the oldest of four children and married to my childhood sweetheart so needless to say, our house was always full! Our parents filled our home with so much joy through outdoor movie nights, bonfires, family dinners, and cookouts.
You could say that this is why I began the blog in the first place. I loved to watch my Mom and Grandma cook, bake, and prepare for those they loved. I saw the joy that came from preparing a simple meal or sweet treat for someone.
In 2017 I started blogging as a hobby and a project to save all of the recipes that I love to make in one place, while also challenging myself to create new ones. Once I got a taste of blogging, I fell in love with the creative outlet that it provided and decided to grow my little piece of the internet into what is now by Lauren Cermak!
Join me in going for grace in all of life’s moments, big and small!
