Why Carry Grace?

 I have been blogging since 2007 about all kinds of things at Nikki's Nacs. I have mostly blogged about things that are related to DIY, home decor, my kids, homeschooling, and homemaking.

At the beginning of 2015, I thought I was done blogging. I started the year off with big plans for the blog, but after one organizing post, and one meal plan in January, I just felt done. I have always enjoyed blogging, but was really okay to be done.

I was sitting in church during a Wednesday night service, and the Lord dropped the words, "Carrie Grace", in my heart. I was all, Whoa! What?. You see, Carrie Grace, was the name we had picked out in case we ever had a little girl. We are done having babies, so I wasn't sure what to think. I sat there a minute, and then asked, what does that mean? I know we are DONE having babies!

I just sat there, and then I heard (not in an audible voice, just in my heart), Carry with a "y".

I then knew that it was the name of a new blog. Carry Grace.

Being and wife, mom, teacher, and homemaker can be hard, but it doesn't have to be. I can hold on to His grace in the midst of the everyday stuff.

The things I blog about will still be very similar to the posts at Nikki's Nacs, but I hope to also be here to encourage you in your journey as a wife and mom.

 I am planning to move some of my posts for Nikki's Nacs to Carry Grace, but I haven't decided exactly how I am going to do it. I may tweak and revamp some as new posts, or they may show up in the archives. I'm pretty sure it won't be a quick, all at once, kind of thing.

I am glad that you are here, and hope you stick around. 


  1. Love how the Lord dropped the name in your lap. It's beautiful!

  2. Wow what a cool story of how the name came to be!! Love it!

  3. I am so glad you will continue blogging! Thank you for being willing to shine your light for Jesus! I just love the new name!

  4. I love this name... my first name is Carrie (I was named after my great aunt Caroline), but I love it with the 'y' and how this fell in place while you were sitting in church. How wonderful and I can't wait to read on to see where this leads you!
