Who am I?

We’ve all asked ourselves that question at least once in our lives.

I am Christen Fox, the unconventional Christian blogger, aspiring writer and recovering perfectionist behind Seeking Grace & Gratitude. I am a child of God but I still mess up and make mistakes…daily! Yet, by the grace of God I am saved and redeemed! I am an extroverted introvert who strives to be open, honest, authentic and unfiltered in all areas of my life. It’s not always easy to be raw and real when sharing my story and my heart, but when I do, I experience so much healing and freedom as well as love and strength from my heavenly Father.

I am a wife and a mom and I love to dress up and look pretty, but also have days when I want nothing more than to wear sweats and go without makeup or crawl under a rock and bawl like a baby. I believe that life is a gift (as proved in my lengthy testimony) and that the best way to show people Jesus is to strive to live like Him.  

It is my prayer for you to be encouraged through the Holy Spirit’s work within the Seeking Grace & Gratitude ministry. May these words and these stories reflect the gospel and all of God’s glory.


“You are the One who put me together inside my mother’s body, and I praise You because of the wonderful way You created me. Everything You do is marvelous! Of this I have no doubt. Nothing about me is hidden from You! I was secretly woven together deep in the earth below, but with Your own eyes You saw my body being formed. Even before I was born, You had written in Your book everything I would do.”

~ Psalms 139:13-16 (CEV)
