Five Minutes Alone and Small Steps, Day 5: Grace


As we reflect on theme of grace today with the Small Steps Tour, we thought we’d take a moment to also highlight some of the humorous ways moms grab five minutes.

Today, meet Dianna.


Dianna is welcoming Number 6 to her family, and as she shares the good news and her ongoing reflections about being an over-40 mom, I can’t help but see grace at work. It takes grace to be candid. It takes grace to smile. It takes grace to pause and snuggle the kid who’s nearby, whether they’re a teen or a tot.

Now, if you haven’t already join us at Uncommon Grace for some Small Steps. And don’t forget to enter the “Five Minutes Alone” contest that’s going on as part of our blog tour!
