author. speaker.
retreat director.
honorary friend.

I'm an author, blogger, podcast host, and speaker. I grew up near New Orleans, Louisiana, in a suburban town called Mandeville. In 2018 I graduated from Baylor University with a degree in journalism. I currently reside in Orlando, Florida, where I enjoy going on runs and eating lots of sushi.

Hi! I'm Grace Valentine and I'm happy you're here.

I am a retired party girl who loves Criminal Minds a little too much. On Saturdays you can find me at the farmers market or sleeping in a little too long. I've learned many lessons the hard way, laugh a little too loud, but try to embrace each day and the life God has given me. It is an honor to connect with you. Thank you for loving me and my hot mess self.


Water Into Wine is your new favorite podcast, hosted by Grace Valentine + Kettley Valcourt.

If Kettley and Grace were friends in middle school we all know the teacher would separate them because they would talk too much. Grace desired a space where she could be honest and talk to you like a best friend, which is why she brought in one of her lively besties to co-host.

Kettley + Grace hope this podcast can be FUN, an easy listen when you're driving, and a place where you can drink your drinky drink, talk about crazy ex-friends, church hurt, and your classic boy stories (sry we have hormones).
