About the blog
Her Style of Tea is a Christian lifestyle blog on a mission to help everyday women experience freedom and fulfillment by discovering who they are in Christ, developing a personal relationship with God, and prioritizing physical, mental, and spiritual wellness.
After spiraling downward for some time, in 2017, I found myself at rock bottom. I made some choices I regret and landed myself in places I never thought I’d be. While I wasn’t exactly sure who I was becoming, I knew I didn’t like her. I felt trapped in brokenness, fear, anxiety, and pain.
My breakthrough started when I did the only thing I knew to do. I ran right into the arms of God.
For the next few months, I spent most days sobbing in the presence of God. On the outside, it looked like things were getting worse. But between me and God, it was clear that the tears were the beginning of my healing.
I remember one day in particular after reading a couple verses of scripture, I started praying and sobbing, of course. When I lifted my head, I noticed that my tears soaked a small section of the page I was reading. Here’s what it said:
He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Psalm 107:29
If I didn’t know that God was with me, I knew it then. He spoke directly to my situation through his word and literally brought peace into my heart.
During this process, I got to know God again. This time through his word and one-on-one communication with him. I let God empty me of all my misconceptions and everything I thought I knew about him. I was a blank slate, hungry and ready for God to fill me. I studied, I read, and I prayed. The God of heaven came down and satisfied my heart with his presence.
I had no clue that I could know God like that. I thought experiencing God was something that only happened in church or a worship service. I thought it could only come from a Pastor or a sermon. I didn’t grasp the reality that God wanted to know me, despite my brokenness, my weaknesses and my fear. He wanted to know me.
I used to be the girl who often made decisions to fit in or please others. This is what led to that downward spiral. It’s what caused me to almost hit rock bottom back in 2017. I felt pulled apart by everyone and everything in my life and I wasn’t grounded in truth.
Like the amazing redeemer he is, God shattered every lie and spoke truth into my heart. He revealed himself to me and by doing so, he showed me who I really was.
He changed everything in my life. Inexplicable peace, joy, and love began to flow. I had a real relationship with him. I became grounded in my identity. I had been set free.
Her Style of Tea is for the woman wanting to go deeper with God.
She’s tired of the surface and wants to know him for real.
Maybe you don’t have a story quite like mine, but you hunger to know God more.
Maybe you’ve struggled with your identity and like me, you have felt pulled apart by people’s expectations.
I want to help you run to the Father. I won’t tell you what to believe but I will share my thoughts rooted in scripture and provide resources to help you seek after God’s heart.
There’s a “you” that can only be revealed by getting to know Him.
About the Founder
My name is Shanté Grossett and I am the founder of Her Style of Tea. I started the blog in 2019, a few years after a rock bottom experience that led me deep into the presence of God. By getting to know him, I learned who I really was. I have a background in Fashion Merchandising and Fine Arts and I currently work in New York City as a Production Assistant. When I’m not writing, you can probably find me drinking tea, thrifting in vintage shops, journaling, practicing photography, brunching in the city, or visiting a new exhibition at the Met Museum. I’m passionate about sharing the things God has taught me. I’m nowhere near perfect and still growing each day, but I’m grateful for this platform and I don’t take it for granted. I’m excited that you are here and I can’t wait for you to dive in and read the latest articles.
