2My name is Tori Grace and I am currently attending college to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher.

When I am not working on my blog, you can find me all around my college campus. I might be found at work- either at my school’s Student Union, or being the Departmental Assistant for my major. Or I could be at one of my various club meetings, each of which I hold a different officer position: President, Vice President, and Secretary. I can also be found in the Student Government office planning some school events.

I guess you could say I have spread my self thin in college, but let me tell you, it is worth it! And that is why I am here sharing my experience with you!

About this blog:

During the first year of college, I started a WordPress blog called, “Tori in Thousand Oaks,” to keep my family updated about my life. They are such big supporters and have made a huge impact in my life that I wanted to share my journey with them.

Soon enough I decided to buy my own domain because I realized how wonderful the blogging community is. I found my self creating friendships, and gaining inspiration from others.  After a year of growing my blog, I decided to make another switch and rebrand.

Thus, Tori Grace.  I am really excited to see where this  new journey takes me.

3You might be wondering, what does the wave symbolize in my logo?

When I was brainstorming for my new brand and looking for symbols of grace, I came across a picture of a wave and the quote below.

“Grace is a way of being, of how you treat people. In ancient Polynesia, grace was a state of mind where all was in acceptance. When someone is in a true state of grace, they accept that people, things, circumstances just are. They are not to be judged, and therefore, allowed to live. The symbol of grace is a series of wavy lines, such as a wave.”

I fell in love with what because here at Tori Grace, no one is judged and every one is welcome to live their life to the fullest. I aim to be in a true state of grace.


School: I am majoring in Interdisciplinary Educational Studies with a minor in Psychology.

Extracurriculars: Crafts, event planning, mentoring, organization, writing, traveling, washi tape and practicing my faith.

    Hi Tori, you have no idea who I am but your Grandfather, Glenn Haas is my cousin. He is the oldest living Cushing relative and I am the second oldest.

    I am not an avid blogger but this is the one we did for the three trips we made to Africa. I taught Pastoral Theology, Marriage and Familly Counseling, and Spiritual Formation for one semester during three different school years at Nazarene Theological College.


    Wonderful to hear your refreshing thoughts and that you too, are a Child of God.
