Welcome friend! We are Irina and Mindi, Co-Founders of Pure Grace. Our mission, passion and vital need is to equip and empower women like you to live purposeful lives. We come to you with a combined 35 years of teaching and speaking as well as guiding others to become more joyful, faithful, generous people and live balanced lives.
We are business partners, running buddies, and best friends, who care for each other’s families with thought and regard like they are our own, but most importantly, we are beloved children of God.
Irina, originally from Russia, is married with two young sons. She is a constant learner, loves language and sour cream and has a crazy amount of patience...she is teaching Mindi Russian.
Mindi, a Southern California native, is married to her husband of 25 years, Matt.
They have two adult daughters, Tori and Meredith.
Tori, the baby, attends college on the West Coast and has developed a deep love affair with the beach. She gets it from her Momma.
Meredith is getting married this summer to her best friend, also named Matt, in her parents backyard. Together they have Murphy, their furry canine baby.
After almost 20 years in sales for the same company, life took a left turn for Mindi. Her division was closed and the opportunity to add to her skill set opened! She has a very full life and likes it that way. Together with their band, she and Irina lead worship on Sundays at their home church. Mindi is ordained to perform weddings and baptisms, has been writing for many, many years and loves to read.
If you asked her to describe herself in just a few words they would be: driven, kind and forgiven. She lives by grace and strives to be an authentic example of how to live Life on Purpose, all for the glory of God. She fails a lot BUT that's why it's so real. Her flaws include but are not limited to obsessing over her eyebrows, wishing she was a better cook and liking junk food way too much. Her husband keeps her on her toes, lets her practice patience and forgiveness continually and is an amazing father and friend. One of her best qualities is her ability to seek the silver lining. She is a scandalous hoper and lover of God.
To say Mindi is an avid prayer would be an understatement. She joyfully leads the prayer team at church and is always asking people how she can pray for them. Prayer is serious business♥
Together we make a pretty awesome team, we promise!
Trust.Seek.Pray.Decide.Act in whatever you do and purpose will follow!
