Denise Grove is wife to Greg, homeschooling mama to 7, grandma to 2 here and 1 who recently went home to be with Jesus, blogger, speaker, coffee drinker, dog lover, and all around crazy lady……desperately in love with Jesus. She has always loved to read and write. She remembers writing her first book as a child: illustrating it and being sure every line rhymed. Who knew that passion would follow her into adulthood and that it would become her lifelong goal to use her writing and speaking to point women to the truth! Denise started blogging as a way to share what God was teaching her. This developed into a speaking ministry where she has spoken at retreats, conferences, workshops, and mom’s groups for several years now. Besides speaking and writing (and her main job as a homeschool mama) Denise leads a post abortion support group for her local pregnancy center. She has also served on the women’s ministry team for her local church and also for the Eastern District of the Evangelical Free Church of America. She has had the opportunity to minister in Haiti and Ghana working with children and was a part of a women’s conference in Colombia! In 2011 she released her first book Beauty and the Beast Within. Always struggling for as long as she can remember with her own self-image this book has become a gentle reminder of where her true beauty lies and she hopes to help others find the truth that she has found.
