Meet Grace Fox

Each week, I'll be taking some time to introduce you to a blog I find interesting, funny or absurd.  Although the content you will be exposed to won't be coming directly from my mind, it will definitely be something my mind loves. So, if you enjoy my mind...you'll enjoy these friends.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This morning, I was about to introduce you all to someone when a little note in my Facebook sidebar appeared that caused me to bump someone else to the front of the line.

Now, although I get lots of requests to “like”, “join” or “accept” things, many of them remain untouched. Call me picky, but I’m not one of those people who complies with such requests just because they are there. Infact, I’ve never climbed a mountain for that same reason.

Believe it or not, I need to actually “like” what’s being proposed in order to “like” it. However, that being said, I still have many acceptable requests that have remained un-responded to…mainly because of laziness. I’ll get to them eventually.

Anyways, this morning I "liked" something/someone and hopefully you will too.  I’m very excited to introduce an amazing writer, speaker...and friend. Please say “Hello” to

GRACE FOX


I love Grace. She and her husband Gene are amazing people and I had the immense privilege of not only working with them, but living with them…in principle.

I first met Grace, almost four years ago (ish) when she joined the Girl’s Night Out team. GNO is a traveling women’s event created by World Vision Canada, on which I was the Tour Manager.  As a result, Grace, Gene and I spent many (many) hours together…in the van, at a restaurant or pool side at the hotel. We shared countless laughs and even a few tears.

Well, today I got word that Grace is promoting her deeply inspiring book, Moving from Fear to Freedom.


So, I've decided to try and help in my own little way because I “like” it (and her) enough to do more than just “like” it…which I did, by the way.

You can “like” it here, as well: http://www.facebook.com/CSSVBT.GraceFox.MovingFromFeartoFreedom

From Grace’s website:

“Grace Fox is an author and speaker best described in three words: Daring. Deep. Devoted. Her passion is to help women develop the same characteristics – to become daring in their faith, deep in their convictions, and devoted in their relationship with Jesus Christ…Grace’s quick wit, real-life stories, and biblical insight keep her in constant demand…Everywhere she goes, she exudes a contagious desire to show how God’s truth can help women.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

If you’re a woman, then you really should connect with Grace.

If you’re NOT a woman, then you really should connect the woman in your life to Grace.

And, if the whole “Jesus” connection makes you leery, understand this:

Grace may be passionate about her faith, but she isn’t judgemental. Grace is not only her name…it’s her lifestyle. I’m sure the AIDS-afflicted outcasts (modern day “lepers”) in Eastern Europe, with whom she has worked extensively, would attest to that.

VISIT Grace Fox at her blog: http://www.gracefox.com/blog
and be sure and tell her that TBoy sent you. Enjoy.

Grace if ever read this, “Give Gene a big hug for me. Love ya both!”

Have a good one,
Timmy
