Gumption. Good golly…. A girl has got to have it. This is the spiritedness of a woman, her drive, her wit, her nerve. This is her strength. But without grace this strength can be warped into something ugly. Spunk is wielded and matured into something powerful with the gentleness that comes from grace.
Grace. Giving grace at its core means extending unearned favor to those around us. When someone acts rude, we are called to treat them with kindness. Elegance exudes from the person who is generous and considerate in their words, actions, and attitude towards others. The symbiotic relationship with Gumption allows a person with grace to not become a doormat, but a woman of strength and fortitude.
