At Grit + Grace we create all-natural hemp/soy wood wick candles that inspire hope and encourage healing. We invest in educational programing that aids in preventing childhood sexual abuse. Our owner Erin is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. She began pouring candles in 2018 as part of her healing journey, gifting them to friends and family. Through lots of prayer, therapy and a few hundred candles later, she is stepping out in faith and freely sharing her grit + grace through each candle she makes.



At Grit + Grace Candles,10% of our proceeds are donated to Lauren’s Kids, a non-profit that educates adults and children about sexual abuse prevention through in-school curriculum, resources for families and speaking engagements. Your purchase has purpose. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!


At Grit + Grace we aim to offer hope and healing to those recovering from sexual trauma. Through Stories of Hope we have created a safe space for women to share their stories of sexual abuse and the light that can be found in the darkest of places. Additionally, we are blessed to offer Resources for Healing from two licensed therapists on our team. If you or someone you know has walked through sexual abuse, we hope that you find refuge here. We pray that life’s challenges will neither defeat nor define you [grit] and you will extend kindness to yourself and others even when it’s hard [grace].
