What Women Are Saying

"Ungrind is for any woman who has ever felt alone. Alone in her stand for truth. Alone in her insecurities. Alone in living out her potential. It is about community and finding worth first in God and second in the specific purposes He has for women. Reading Ungrind is like sitting down to a cup of coffee with your girlfriends and discovering you're not the only one."
