Welcome to Gifts by Grace. I'm Barbara Parentini, an author, speaker, and creator of Soaring Hearts Cards. I'm delighted you've taken a few moments out of your day to visit with me. I invite you to pause a while on my sailboat, breathe in the salty air, and let your cares drift out to sea.
At Gifts by Grace, you'll find updates about books in progress, Soaring Hearts Cards, and Living Letters(R) Seminars and Teas. You're welcome to pause a moment to enjoy occasional blog interviews with featured authors, their journeys an inspiration for writers and readers alike. Also, feel free to leave a prayer request on the page for requests.
The vision for Gifts by Grace grew out of my life-changing accident, October 24, 2003, in Sarasota, Florida. God's grace saved and protected me, and transformed brokenness into blessings. From that day, I felt called to share the message of God's love and grace with others.
May you embrace God's immeasurable love for you, and your heart be encouraged on your journey.
I'd love to hear from you in the days ahead!
