Imparting Grace

I'm Richella--child of God, apprentice to Jesus, wife of a great guy, and mom of three wonderful sons, I'm a blessed and profoundly grateful woman.  I'm also a writer and speaker, and I serve on the Ministry Team and Board of Directors of Renovare', a ministry dedicated to Christian spiritual formation.  <br><br>I love blogs for the glimpses they provide into people's lives, so my blog gives you a glimpse into my life--my home, my family, my faith.   My prayer is that this blog might impart some grace to you.
