The Gracious Living Manifesto:
Slow down and choose with more intention.
Cultivate personal growth not perfection.
Act with gratitude in our heart.
Speak with more civility and lavish kindness.
Celebrate that which is timeless and delightful.

Did I describe you too?
But if like me, you have a mile long to do list;
Urgent hands pulling you in a million different directions;
And often feel undermined by flawed expectations;
It can be hard to live up to that charming personality.
Am I right?
That’s when I turn to my gracious living manifesto for guidance!
