Hey, I'm Erica, author of The Grace Diaries. I believe that love and grace are two of the most powerful forces in life, and that through them we allow ourselves and others to grow. Personally, I am a follower of Christ, a wife and a writer. I love to run, lift heavy weights (and put them back down), cook, read, hike, bike, travel, and spend time with my hubby. I started this blog as a way to celebrate life, faith, fitness, marriage and the lessons I'm learning as a woman who loves God and people.
Hey, I'm Erica, author of the Grace Diaries blog! I live in Northern Virginia - the land of the tolls. God's grace changed my life many years ago, and I have a passion for fitness and wellness. I'm first and foremost a Christ follower, but I'm also a wife, a writer and one of the world's okayest runners. I love to serve and give, share the Gospel, lift heavy weights (and put them back down), cook, read, hike, bike, savor good cups of coffee, travel and spend time with my hubby. I started this blog as a way to celebrate life, faith and marriage with a side of fitness and wellness. Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
