F.A.Q

I love to hear from you and I always want you to feel you can email me. But I have noticed over the last year, I keep getting asked a lot of the same questions.

So lets pretend we’re sitting around the table at my favorite coffee shop and I’m going to answer the questions I get asked the most often.

1. How did you get started blogging? 

I started blogging in 2009. My Mom introduced me to the blogging world and encouraged me to start one. I started with a lifestyle blog but after attending a blogging conference, I felt God leading me to write about my love for fashion and makeup.

I felt I could reach more women and not only share about fashion but my faith in Jesus. That’s how Walking In Grace & Beauty started.

2. I would love to start a blog could you give me some advice?

The best place I can send you for help on starting a blog is to Amy Lynn Andrews. If you have a question, Amy has an answer!! Her post on How To Start A Blog in 15 Minutes or Less is a great place to start.

Blogging is a wonderful thing but it does take time and commitment. The best advice I can give you is to start a blog on something you love.

Also attend a blogging conference. These have been big helps for me with blogging.

3. Do you really make money blogging?

Yes. Blogging is my full time job, but it has taken me years to get to this point. If you’re starting a blog to make money, there are easier ways to make money, I promise.

Most of us that make money have had to work very hard to get to this point but it can be done. Just know you have to be patient, it doesn’t typically happen over night.

4. How tall are you? What size do you wear?

I’m 5’6″ and I generally wear a size 4 or 6 in pants and a size extra small in a top. I hope that helps!

Many of you have noticed I’ve lost a few pounds since I first started blogging. You can read this post Healthy Living In Our 40s and Beyond.

5. Do you workout everyday? What workout do you use?

I am a part of the Faster Way to Fat Loss Program and can find out more information here.

7. What do you use to help with Menopause?

I have written several posts on Menopause that can answer this question.

8. Can you tell us about your family?

Hmm. What to say? I’m married to Wayne.

We have 2 grown children. Our daughter is married and has our only grandson. They are expecting a baby in May and it’s a girl!

Our son is an attorney and single.

 Here are some other things you may not know about me!

  • I love coffee and can’t wait to get up and have that first cup!
  • I’m an early riser! Any where between 4:30 and 5:30. I love mornings!
  • My husband and I both have our concealed weapons license.
  • I try to eat organic or clean. I’m not 100% but I eat a lot less processed food these days.

If you have any other questions you can email me at contactcyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Cyndi,
    I stumbled across you on Pinterest……looking around your site, excited to begin following you and gaining ideas!

  2. Hi Cyndi,
    I just happen to stumble on your website and so glad I did. I like your set up as well as your love for God. So refreshing in these days and time. However, I have had a love for fashion for years and always thought I want to become an professional buyer. Never the less I did get my business license and I have a name for my online boutique and have had it for a couple of years now. Now I just need to put one foot in front of the other. I love fashion and that is where most of my money goes to, why not make money too. Thank you for your page, I am hooked 🙂

  3. Hi Cyndi, I’ve just recently found your blog through Pinterest and have signed up for your emails as well.

    I really like your style and appreciate your passion that beauty truly comes from within and from a relationship with Jesus Christ! You have a unique ministry online, and I’m sure God will continue to use you to share the gospel with women who wouldn’t normally go to a setting where it might be shared.

    My husband has been pastor for about 30 years, and we’ve served in GA, TX, PA, NC, and again in TX. I’m learning to navigate the south TX heat most of the year while trying to remain somewhat stylish but appropriate. I love all the photos you post since they give me much inspiration for things I may already have in my closet, as well as pieces I may want to add to my wardrobe.

    I also have my CCL and am always looking for creative pieces to help me carry concealed. I have a Flashbang holster which is probably my favorite of the three I own, but recently I’ve developed a rash so can’t use it. I’m hoping it’s related to the summer heat, and I’ll be able to begin using it this fall. Have you considered doing an occasional post on carrying concealed? I’m sure there are many of us who could use inspiration in that area!

    Thank you again for your lovely blog!

  4. I have been searching for a fashion blog that is appropriate (I’m 47…not 17) *and* realistic (I will not wear a beret …ever). I somehow ended up here and am completely hooked! I love your style – it’s literally exactly what I’m looking for. It’s beautiful and clean and elegant and relaxed and appropriate and …well, you get my point. Thank you for taking the time to put this blog together and share your talents. I now have a new “go to” place to help me find clothes that work.
