How did you know Grace?

I was blessed to get to know Grace through church. I also had the honor of being Grace's confirmation mentor, although she has taught me more than I ever could have taught her.

What is a memory you have of Grace? How did Grace impact your life?

The picture I'm sharing is of a youth group event and one that reminds me of Grace best. She always had the biggest smile and biggest positive personality that I've even seen a teenager have. Many Sundays she and her siblings would brighten my day with their big hugs. She was such mother hen to children when she was just a young lady herself. Grace was so wise beyond her years and always did everything with passion, energy, love, and a great big Grace smile! She loved so purely and fully to anyone and everyone she met.
