What Is A Blog Link-Up?
A “link-up” is the online version of a “meet-up.”
Instead of writers going to a coffee shop on a specified date, we all visit the same blog. The host blogger provides a way for everyone to add a link (or two) from a blog post they wrote. Then, every blogger visits other blogs that were linked up.
Link-ups are a great way to discover new bloggers and build online friendships.
You can watch the two short videos below if you’d like to learn more about the Grace & Truth Link Up, and see how to leave your link.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace & truth.John 1:14
Grace & Truth is a link-up that exists to point women to Jesus.
We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement each week. If you are a Christian blogger, we invite you to link up and meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader, we encourage you to visit new bloggers and discover women who love Jesus as much as you do. Whoever you are, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.
Heather is first and foremost a servant of Christ who is happily married to the man of her dreams—but she’s also the mother of four and an internationally best-selling and award-winning author. She doesn’t have it all together, but she’s okay with that because she knows Christ has her covered when she fails. Her hope that is while she is struggling through this thing called life, she is pointing others towards Jesus along the way.
Valerie is a wife, mother, blogger, breast cancer survivor, and the co-director of Candidly Christian (as well as our Prayer Team Liaison). After suffering years of debilitating anxiety, she learned that victory over anxiety comes only through surrender to Jesus. Now she helps women overcome anxiety through faith.
Maree is a writer, blogger, and speaker. She knows that while our stories may not be the same, we all face the unexpected in life. We all have a choice in how we face life and Maree believes we are meant to do life together, never alone. Her hope is that through her writing she can help others uncover ways to find hope, peace, joy, and every day unexpected blessings along the way.
Lauren loves Jesus, her husband, and caffeine. The order of these can change depending on how tired she is (who can relate?). When her two daughters, stepson, and 4 grandchildren get to be too much, she practices yoga. God graciously allows her to share her adventures, victories, and flub-ups from her laptop.
Lisa looks for God in ordinary people and in everyday moments, then shares where she finds Him on her blog LisaNotes.com. She lives in an empty nest with her husband, is a mom to two grown daughters here and one daughter in heaven, and is Granna to two fun granddaughters. She loves memorizing scripture and leads online Bible Chapter Memory Challenges two to three times a year at DoNotDepart.com.
