Confession: I used to hate my name. Being Korean American, everyone and their mothers had the same name as me. It was frustrating to think that I was just “yet another Grace”.
My Korean name actually means “Summer Grace” (yes, I am a summer baby!) My dad told me once that he had thought about naming me “Summer”. To be honest, I sometimes still think about how I do not know a single person named Summer and what a cool name that would have been to have.
But with time, and with age, I have grown a deep and profound appreciation for my name. There is so much breadth and depth to “grace.”
A Place of Grace is my journey, my life. Follow me in my search for the grace in life.
I hope A Place of Grace would become a place of respite for my readers, a place where we can together reflect on the small joys in life, whether it be the unconditional love of a pet, the joys of travel, the company of good friends, the satisfaction of a good meal or a great bargain.
