About Me » Widow » Mom » Friend

JodiHi! I’m Jodi. 

Welcome to Extra Grace Required. Want to learn more about me? You’re in the right place. I’m a recent widow and proud Mom of three ridiculously amazing and strong-willed children. I’m a mix of optimism, stubbornness and anxiety. Life has knocked me down a few times, but with faith, family and the most incredible friendships on the planet, I continue to rise up. It’s my mission to turn my pain into purpose by “keepin’ it real” with you.

Even though we may not have met before, I’ve been praying for you. I care about you and all the ways life has tried to make you feel alone, less than and defeated. We’re in this together.

God gave me some less-than-typical spiritual gifts including sarcasm, self-deprecating humor and empathy. I want to leave you entertained, inspired and more loved and confident than before you visited.

Come along as I live out the next chapter in my messy but beautiful Extra Grace Required life.

Your friend,
