Hi! I’m Lisha Epperson, a hopeful romantic and lover of Jesus. I’m a happy wife and delightfully surprised mother of 5 children.
Give Me Grace has grown into a creative exploration of the intersection of grace with my life as a midlife woman of faith, it’s how I carve out a life as a believer in New York City. It’s also a journal on how I pursue my passions and calling in the center of all this midlife crazy. I hope to encourage you as you explore your own.
I am a writer, speaker and dancer seeking ordination as a minister. Last fall I followed a quiet, years-long vision and became a seminary student. We’ll talk about my grad school journey, about relationships, faith, race and justice issues. We’ll talk movement and prayer and how I use the two to connect my spirit to the Jesus I love.
God shot an arrow through my heart with a 14-year journey through the wilderness of infertility. I still have a heart to encourage women in this area and dedicate the month of April on the blog to the stories of my fellow #infertilitywarriors. Submit your story to the Last Girl on the Hill Series at lisha dot epperson @gmail dot com. I share mine in The Process, The Promise : a journal for infertility prayer. It’s available on Amazon.
By Gods grace I’m a step, adoptive and biological mama. We’ll talk about motherhood and homeschooling and what that looks like in my part of the world. We’ll talk about my relationship with my husband of 20 years and how God is teaching us about forgiveness and the unpretty parts of making a marriage work. I’ll share how we stay in love.
I love fashion and art and chocolate and coffee. I wear headwraps, and long skirts. A stained dark lipstick still makes me feel pretty. I’m drawn to liturgy and the spirituality of architecture. I read. I bake. I move.
I adore the community Gods called me to online and I’m grateful you’ve chosen to or have found yourself here.
I host a weekly link up called Give Me Grace where I wrestle with life and faith and all the wanderings of my midlife heart. I’ve always wrestled. It is grace that I still wrestle, that God continually engages me. You’re invited to join me. In fact, please do. The link-up goes live on Saturday nights and we continue the gathering through Sunday.
