Carrie Gracie is a believer of tossing kindness around like confetti.
Tell Your Story
Before The Kindness Box, she started another business where she sold hair bows. As a teacher, she was around children a lot and she did this as a hobby. A lot of women started coming to her site and so she added more products. This eventually evolved into TheKindnessBox as it is today.
In the last 4 years however, she’s been on more speaking engagements about kindness – in the business, workplace and collage campuses. She shares a lot of her story and how to cultivate more kindness to go around.
Carrie’s fulfilling journey involves being part of someone else’s story – their celebrations and happiness, their sadness, their coping with sickness – making what she does even more worthwhile.

How do you incorporate God into your business?
She never intended to have a business, stepping into speaking, this was not her career path. God is the lamp post and guiding force. Sharing with other people, her business, and her personal life – everything that she’s doing – is driven by her relationship with God.
Your bible verse for this season and why.
Be still and know that I am God. – Psalm 46:10
Carrie tends to be a doer so this is a helpful reminder to be still and know that God is always bigger than us. It’s good to refocus and be grateful and remind ourselves that He is The Rock.
