Heeey! I'm Grace Sandra!

My life's calling has always been to share my heart, my stories, my empathy & my vulnerabilities so that others can benefit from my healing journey. In the last 5 years, I've experienced deeply painful trauma which forced me to slow down and face my demons head on. I've shared a bit through my old (rusty, dusty) blog, various articles and through my recently published memoir-ish book of essays: Grace, Actually: Faith, Love, Loss & Black Womanhood.

After I was diagnosed with Complex PTSD I realized I would not survive the trauma I was facing if I did not learn to re-parent myself through a consistent and disciplined practice of self-love activities. As I heal and grow, I'm ready to share more of what I experienced and how I made it through the hardest season of my entire life. 

I would love your support for 3 specific projects I'm hoping to gain momentum on. First up! A few months back I launched a YouTube channel: Out Here Tryna Survive. Among a few family vlogs, I documented my journey through EMDR therapy. I'm starting a new series soon about how I survived narcissistic abuse, what it is & how others can survive too. Secondly, I'll be working on a book proposal for my 1st ever traditionally published solo project! More details on that coming soon. Finally, I'm partnering up to launch an upcoming podcast of the same name: Out Here Tryna Survive.

Everything I seeking to do is attempting to answer this question:how do we practice self-care, self-love & self-development with our unique challenges as black women?

I am an award-winning blogger & have been featured in Huff Post, The Root, Christianity Today, Relevant, Her.menuetics & more. I have two published Bible studies (Abingdon Press) & have essays published in multiple book projects. I spent 14 years in campus ministry serving the black student community + I've spoken all over the country trying to address and bring healing & hope to the issues constantly swirling around us.

I pray my life is a testament to God’s ability to heal, restore & redeem.
