My Story

Faster than the spin cycle on a washing machine

More powerful than a toddler having a tantrum

Able to leap a mountain of dirty dishes in a single bound

Look! Up in the sky

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Superwoman…..NOT!

She’s no superwoman. She’s just an average woman who loves God and wants to share it with others. Denise Grove is wife to Greg, homeschooling mama to 7, grandma to 2 here and 1 who recently went home to be with Jesus, blogger, speaker, coffee drinker, dog lover, and all around crazy lady……desperately in love with Jesus.

She has always loved to read and write. She remembers writing her first book as a child illustrating it and being sure every line rhymed. Who knew that passion would follow her into adulthood and that it would become her lifelong goal to use her writing and speaking to point women to the truth!

Denise started blogging as a way to share what God was teaching her. This developed into a speaking ministry where she has spoken at retreats, conferences, workshops, and mom’s groups for several years now.

Besides speaking and writing (and her main job as a homeschool mama) Denise leads a post abortion support group for her local pregnancy center She has also served on the women’s ministry team for her local church and also for the Eastern District of the Evangelical Free Church of America.

In 2011 she released her first book Beauty and the Beast Within. Always struggling for as long as she can remember with her own self image this book has become a gentle reminder of where her true beauty lies and she hopes to help others find the truth that she has found.

I'm with you on this. 2012 already has a different feel for me too. The main thing I've already accomplished is complaining less. I am tired of doing things for myself and feel God is calling me to step it up a notch. I think it will be hard and I will grow much but I am sure there is just as much good in store too.
