Real Talk for Moms of Girls with Grace Valentine

Calling all moms of girls, high school girls, college girls and young adult girls – trust me when I say “PRESS PLAY” and “SHARE!” I was blown away by this 27-year-old young woman who simply gets it. She is so honest, hilarious, inspiring and challenging. Your girls need to hear her story and how God has used her.

From being bullied to battling an eating disorder to partying in college – God drew her back to himself and has exploded her influence in the most beautiful way.

I have heard about Grace from multiple college kids and now I completely understand why so many of our girls are hanging on her words. She shares truth and wisdom and she’s incredibly relatable.

You will LOVE her!
