HI. I'M GRACE.
I am a leader birthed in the silent fires of the purity movement and the height of evangelical conferences and mission trips. In the Northwoods on the land of the Anishinaabe, I have attended, cared for, and witnessed the birthing of rich and deep stories, weighing into the long laborious heights of birth—metaphorically in the form of formal ministry as well as owning a coffee shop/music venue, but also very literally in assisting our midwife at multiple births.
To hold another's hand and offer care to countless new parents, bearing witness to the treacherous birthing of relentless heartache and unspeakable joys is an honor I hold close in both my physical body and soul. I have found tender threads of passion and purpose within me that have always existed. Through story, poetry, and healing care I have unlocked glimpses of the hope of goodness. Goodness that comes in the deep, laborious places of our souls greatest heartaches and hope
It is my great hope to join you in the aching, the care, and the glory of midwifing your story using enneagram, trauma-informed narrative work, and a good attentive ear.
LET'S BEGIN OUR JOURNEY TOGETHER
"I can attest to Grace's skill in story work. She combines keen insight with the intuitive knowledge of when to push and when to soothe. She executes her midwifery skills offering you her solid presence as you ride the waves of pain that accompany rebirthing stories of harm. She serves as a sherpa guiding you through the craggy valleys and peaks of your traumatic narratives. I wholeheartedly encourage you to entrust yourself to her kind and wise care."
STORY & ENNEAGRAM COACH
Our lives are story. The way we interact is story. We are story. Using a trauma-informed narrative method I guide you through your personal narrative into healing.
We can only go with others as far as we are willing to go ourselves.
How long has it been easier to ignore the gurgling, the bubbling, the ache, the passion that enlivens our soul, and how can we connect the two if we can not hold creation in its poetic beauty?
Poetry reconnects our heart to our soul.
MIDWIFE OF CARE
No one should find themselves wandering alone. I will hold your hands and offer care, bearing witness to the treacherous birthing of relentless heartache and unspeakable joys.
“Grace has been a safe place of empathy and care for me. She is good at asking questions and listening well “
