hi! i’m maggie,

A daughter of Christ & Scouting Grace founder

The purpose of Scouting Grace is to provide a space for you and I to know God and make Him known to others, to have honest conversations, to explore topics in theology, of hospitality, community, and so much more.

Scout means to make a search. Scout is also the name of Atticus Finch's daughter in Harper Lee's classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. It holds bold meaning in my life and gives cause for great hope and expectation. Grace is defined as the unmerited favor of God, meaning you and I could have never done anything to earn or deserve the love and sacrifice Jesus made for us. Grace is the biggest proponent of my testimony. I'll scream it from the freaking rooftops!

In short, I'm looking for grace in all things. Scouting it, technically. Amidst the chaos, the mess, the good stuff, and the hard days, God is working all things together for His glory and my good. I want to know the heart of God for sinners and suffers like me.

Join me in searching for goodness, drinking oft overpriced lattes at cute places, encouraging sisters, watching my sweet man play baseball, snuggling my pup and healing and learning from the pains of anxiety.
