We are a group of advocates who feel that we all have an innate purpose, mission, goal—whatever you want to call it--to make the world a better place. There is so much beauty and love in the world we live in, but there is also heartache and pain. As we set out on this journey we call life, we truly feel at the end of the day it is not about what we have accomplished or the money we have made. It is about how we have helped. It is about how we have lifted others up. It is about how we have helped others live with grace and dignity.
It is our dream at Grace Upon Grace Project to provide under-served people in our community wipes, and period products to live and grow with grace and dignity while addressing the roots of social inequities.
WHO IS BEHIND THE DREAM
Emily's roots will always be in Michigan, but she loves being able to call Colorado home. She has been married to her hunk of a husband for five years and they have three of the most amazing children.
She believes in showing up for each other. Showing up to share the real, ordinary, and extraordinary parts of life. She thinks the three most beautiful traits a human can possess are grace, rawness and vulnerability. When people possess those traits and if they are willing to do the hard work of leaning in, feeling uncomfortable and owning their stories, they can find their true purpose.
When Emily started doing the hard work, she came to the realization that her purpose was to serves others, while giving grace. When people are fully granting grace to others, they are loving them without judgment and accepting them for who they are at that exact moment in time. When people do those two things, they are able to truly show up for each other. It might be hard. It might take courage, but it is the most important thing people can do for each other.
