The Eve Of My First Public Blog Post…

On the eve of my first public blog post, (two weeks ago), I was excited beyond my conscious knowledge. Not only excited but a bit fearful. Though I know I’m called to share a very needed message, I felt I needed extra encouragement to take this long overdue blogging challenge. Well, my idea for encouragement that evening was watching for the third time the movie #Julie#and#Julia, which is about two creative #women with a passion- Julie Powell had a love of writing, and Julia Child a love of cooking. They were both bored and frustrated not using their creative sides. What stood clearly for me, was that these women were as imperfect as they were relentlessly determined to express themselves in their crafts. On their way to succeeding in these #creative outlets, they messed up, had moments of insecurities and #self-doubt, meltdowns, but they continued unmoved. That night after watching the movie, I had the courage to contact author #Julie#Powell through FB messenger. I thanked her for her determination and for the #encouragement to follow her heart-of which I’ve desperately needed. Though she didn’t respond, I know she read my message, and I hope my words will inspire her to continue to bless us with her #authentic style. These women’s determination, will continue to inspire me as I continue to launch this blog. This project is a creative outlet for me, but also a #passion, a calling, and ultimately a mission to inspire the woman of #Faith to live a life of…balance, simplicity, and joy; the #Grace to walk this journey called life with ease! Talk soon! ❤️

Welcome to my blog-Simply Balanced!


Hi there!  My name is Giselle, and I want to personally welcome you to my blog. My purpose for this blog is to inspire the woman of faith to live a simpler, healthier, and more authentic lifestyle. I’ve been in this journey myself, so I have a great passion to share with you what is being revealed to me. I wish I could tell you its been an easy process-it hasn’t. Its been a process of learning God’s truths for myself, unapologizing self-care, self-discovery, quiet time with God, and most importantly, tapping into my own Spirit-led heart and trusting it. My desire is to help you embrace “your own” personal balance as you tap into God’s Amazing Grace.♡

In this blog you’ll find the inspiration, the healthy habits, and the lifestyle choices that best supports THE REAL YOU. I’ll also encourage you to practice simple, practical, minimalistic, and organic choices towards a joy-filled life. Here you”ll always find sensible tips, practical resources, and inspiration for your body, mind, and spirit, but more importantly, the GRACE to live life with ease.  

I will also be sharing my journey in finding my own personal balance. I know some of you ladies will be able to identify with my appropriation of God’s Grace.  My greatest struggle was not owning nor enjoying the freedom of knowing God’s gift of Grace towards us his children-His “unmerited” favor. It’s when I started taking the focus of what I did, instead of what HE did, that I began understanding God’s gift of love, joy, and peace-His Amazing Grace.  

As I begin to share regularly, I will appreciate comments, ideas, and insights, and your own personal experience with God’s Grace.  Here you’ll learn how to EAT well, PRAY authentically, and LOVE openly. Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to leave any comments or questions. 🙂

This is why I’m Here…1 Peter 4:10 says,

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful
 stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
