Introducing our Warrior Zoe Grace

Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. -Psalm 34:5

We are so excited to introduce you to Zoe Grace. Zoe in Greek means life. She is a life that has forever been transformed by the grace of God. She is a warrior who represents every woman who has ever been marginalized, exploited, bullied, and treated like a commodity. She is a woman who has risen from the ashes of her life to declare beauty. She has reclaimed her story. She knows who she is and she fights like it. She doesn’t back down. She doesn’t give in. She doesn’t look back. And she doesn’t apologize for being who God created her to be. She owns it! She knows that every detail in her being is there for a purpose.

She is you. She is me.

Zoe Grace is a warrior showing up to the battlelines.

She says…

I am a trophy of God’s grace. Yes, broken is the new beautiful. I look back and see pieces, but God sees a masterpiece. No longer defined by shame, I am radiant. In fact, for many years of my life, I looked in the mirror, only to see ugly, unlovable, and unworthy. Words of others killed me slowly until I found myself encaged by self-condemnation. I lost my voice under the weight of others expectations until God’s mercy released me into my great awakening. 

I am Zoe Grace, a woman not defined by my past. A woman forever transformed by the love of God. A woman ready to embrace the future and declare I am worthy, significant, and loved! I arise as a warrior engaged for Priceless impact! Today, I embrace my journey of freedom and invite you to do the same. 

The Priceless Journey is now proud to offer a study guide to go with our book You are Priceless. It is a study guide that will truly transform the way you think about yourself and enable you to walk in freedom. It will make you face the lies and teach you to replace them with God’s Truth. It will equip you for battle and remind you who you truly are!

Thank you Zoe for reminding us who we are and helping us embrace the journey of freedom!

Unworthy. Unlovable. Ugly.

These were the words revealed in the mirror of my mind. Words that defined me and suffocated me. Words from my past that choked out my voice. These and many others took up residence in my mind until I chose to go back and uproot them one by one.

I am choosing to see my past as just that, my past. Not a definition of my character or the sum of who I am. Merely a place that advanced me into my destiny. Motivation came through death words as I faced them and embraced the life God promises me in His Word. Daily I made the trade.

Trading in unworthy for worthy. Unlovable for loved. Ugly for beautiful. 

The mirror of my mind now reveals a different story. Rewriting my history to declare I’m blood-bought. I’m worthy. I’m significant. I am Priceless! I’m a trophy of God’s grace, and I refuse to live one more day under the weight of shame and condemnation.

I am free, and I encourage you to embrace your journey of freedom as you make the daily trade. Exchanging and uprooting every lie planted in your mind so that you can make way for the truth of who you are.

You are priceless, my dear!

God sees you. He knows you.

And He loves you with an everlasting love! Nothing can separate you from His love. I invite you to join me in an exquisite discovery to unveil the true masterpiece you are.

Love Beyond Measure

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Annie Johnson Flint has a remarkable story of her love for God and her dedication to live her life for Him during some very difficult times. I encourage you to read Annie’s story. Annie did not let the difficult things of life weigh her down. She did not give up hope, she never gave into circumstances, and she always knew God would see her through. Her poems can be found at Blessed Quietness. And her story can be found at the following link Annie’s Biography. I promise that you will not be wasting your time by checking out either link or both. I tend to go back to Annie’s poems as often as possible and I am encouraged by her steady stand in the Lord. She did not waiver. The poem below reminds us that God’s grace is enough! His grace will always be enough. May you stand in that Truth today!

He Giveth More Grace

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

His love has no limit; His grace has no measure.
His pow’r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!

By:  Annie Johnson Flint

God’s love has NO limit. His grace has NO measure. His power has NO boundary known to men. We are living for the One, True, all powerful God who has no limits, no measure for His grace, and no boundaries to His power in our lives! These very words should make us excited that we serve a God who cares. We are serving the only One who matters! God has cared about you before it even mattered to you. There was a day you weren’t even thinking about it and neither was I, but God was. God has always been thinking about you and loving you. He’ll never stop! Child you are His! His grace abounds for you and it is more than sufficient for you!

Dear Father God, Thank You for reminding me that I am Yours and Your grace is enough for me. I don’t understand a lot of things, but I do understand that Your grace will be enough for me! I’m so glad that Your power knows no limits, Your grace no measure, and Your love no end.

When Jesus Says, “That’s My Girl”

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9


Have you been there? Your child, the beautiful, seemingly innocent baby grew up a couple years and at this moment in time isn’t at all who you had thought they’d grow up to be. Your little blessing is standing before you acting in a way that you don’t allow, and trying to control. You’re doing your best, trying not to let their actions bring on the wrong response or reaction. You’re totally that mom, that before were a mom, you said you’d never be… yeah…it’s happening… it’s going down.

There you stand, sit, kneel, trying to restrain, calm down, and diffuse the situation while you’re asking God for wisdom. Trying to remain composed and exhibit the self-controlled disposition you may feel like you’re constantly rehearsing with those sweet little face that you’re trying really hard to show love to. At the same time, you’re trying to not allow the embarrassment of what they are saying or doing to impact how you treat them or impact how you feel.

Whew, it finally ends, a few minutes, which felt like much more. There you are. With a decision. Sometimes there’s a little joy because you handled in a way that you believe makes Jesus smile, and say something like “That’s my girl!” But more often then I wish, the reality of how I just handle those moments immediately breeds shame… Utter disappointment and then it happens. The bitter self-defeating, self-condemning begins… “If I was a good mom… , Jesus, surely can’t use a mom like me.  I’m totally messing up my child. God’s grace surely can’t cover all of this.” But in that moment I often forget that Jesus is there and in love still saying, “That’s my girl.”

You see, as I am trying right alongside you, is that’s exactly what’s so beautiful about God’s grace. In the moments of our weakness when we fall, when the mommy monster lashes out, when we are being ugly in our attitude or spirit, His beauty, His goodness, His grace- the free unmerited, undeserved favor of God- is right there. After all, isn’t that the beauty of the gospel? Jesus came to save sinners, to do what we couldn’t, to be the good we desire to be but can’t without Him.

So whether you are reading this and you killed it today or whether you read this sad about how the day unfolded. Can I encourage you? Our focus verse says it’s by grace that we have been saved through faith. That same grace that saves us and gives us eternal life can also, restore, heal, buy back the bad and turn it to work together for our good. That promise is our’s—it’s your’s – it’s mine!! It’s a gift from God. Not of our own doing, because we are incapable without Jesus, but because of what He did for you and for me. His sacrifice makes us holy on good days and bad before our righteous heavenly Father. It makes the statement that Jesus is claiming over you and me—His beloved—no matter what the day is looking like so sweet, “See that girl there, yep, her, isn’t she radiant? That beauty right there? That’s MY girl.”


Be encouraged today beautiful Momma, you are unimaginably loved on your amazing days and on the days when you would do anything for a do-over. In those moments –good or bad– you can be confident in God’s love for you!!  His grace is a beautiful gift that can turn the worse days into a beautiful reminder of the gift we have in Jesus!! His grace is waiting… do you need some today it’s yours for the asking??!!

Lord, help us to walk there this week!

Because of Christ’s Love,






5 Psalms for Overwhelmed Moms

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. (Matthew 6:34, MSG)

Have you ever felt overwhelmed in motherhood? Have you had days where it feels like the waters of life are going to wash you away? I’ve been there! I know that feeling well. It’s amazing how quickly the enemy can take us from the mountain top to the desert by getting our focus on the seemingly unimportant details of life. I know for myself the times I feel overwhelmed are often the times I have taken my eyes off of Jesus. It happens when I haven’t spent enough time in God’s Word. It’s the times when I have spent more time focusing on the problem than the Problem Solver. Times when I have fixed my eyes on the broken pieces, instead of the Healer. Times when I have been fixated on my strength, instead of His strength in me.

Yes, the overwhelming feeling comes. That is a guarantee! The enemy always wants to take our eyes off of God and get us fixated on ourselves. During the times we experience this, we need to redirect our thoughts right back to Scripture. We need to take the negative thoughts captive and make them obedient to Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).

I’m Not a Perfect Mom and that’s Perfectly Okay

But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me! (2 Corinthians 12:9-10, AMPC)

Daily, I come to grips with the fact that I’m not a perfect mom. I never have been and I never will be. That title died the moment my children were born. I make mistakes all day long. I say the wrong thing, respond in the wrong way, and neglect to use my time wisely. But here’s the thing… God has not called me to be a perfect mom. He has called me to depend on Him with every breath I take and with every day I live. He wants my dependence to be on His perfection. His power is truly made perfect in my weakness and in that I can rejoice. I don’t have to be a perfect mom. I don’t have to have it all together. I know the One who is perfect and I can point my children to Him. Yes, I’ll never be a perfect mom, but I am the perfect mom for my children and so are you.

So as I accept that I’m not the perfect mom, I can laugh at my failures and learn from them. I can look throughout my day and rejoice that God had mercy on me. I’m thankful for the continual grace that my children show me. More than anything I’m thankful that through my weakness, His power is made perfect!
