About The Gracious Wife
Welcome to The Gracious Wife, a place where you’ll find tips and tricks for your whole home. I’m Michelle, a stay-at-home mom and wife, living in the Chicago Suburbs, striving to serve and love my family graciously.
Are you picturing June Cleaver? Donna Reed? I mean, they’re iconic housewives, with all their ducks in a row and homes fit for a magazine cover. Is that what we should be aiming for?
What IS a Gracious Wife? You can find out what I think a Gracious Wife is here. It’s probably not what you expect!
- I love cooking and coming up with new recipes. Experimenting in the kitchen is one of my favorite past-times.
- I’m a big comfort food lover. Mac and Cheese, Chicken Pot Pie, Peach Cobbler,… Oh my! Don’t even get me started!
- I’m a planner by nature, and I feel it’s necessary to have a physical checklist for every task. In fact, I have a planner to keep track of everything in our house, if you want to check it out!
- I absolutely adore my family. Even though I’m not the perfect wife or mother, I’m enjoying the journey and sharing lessons learned the hard way.

More About The Gracious Wife
I’ve been married to my amazing husband for 7 years. We were high school sweethearts. Mr. Gracious is a firefighter/paramedic, so that adds some extra chaos and juggling into our schedule. I’m so proud of him though, and wouldn’t have it any other way!
We have been blessed with 3 beautiful children, two boys and a girl. The Boss is 6, Baby Boy is 5, and Princess is 3. I have always felt a calling toward motherhood, and am so grateful to have been blessed with these little miracles.
I love hearing from you! So don’t be shy! Feel free to contact me for recipe swapping, questions, ideas, suggestions, anything!
