About Grace 0.1

About Grace & Such

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 
~ Ephesians 4:3

In today’s political and cultural climate, with the overwhelming amount of social media, we are an unwilling audience to the hatred among Christians, among fellow believers. God’s grace abounds, yet so many show so little of it toward others. Grace & Such was started as a way to show healthy and gracious conversation, even when we are in disagreement. Our blog includes posts written by a diverse team of women whose only objectives are to share their grace journeys and show what grace-in-action really looks like to the community of believers who, at times, seems to have forgotten how.

Who We Are

As our tagline says, we are a bunch of women writing about grace. And such.

We are a diverse group of women, ranging in age from 20 to 60-something.

Some of us are married; some are divorced; some are single.

Some of us have children; some have grandchildren; some have neither.

Some of us are conservative; some are liberal; some are somewhere in between.

We don’t agree on everything and that’s okay. But here’s what we do agree on:

  • We believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God
  • We believe in one God in three distinct, equal persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • The Father is the creator of all
  • The Son (Jesus Christ) is our salvation and the only way to the Father
  • The Holy Spirit indwells followers of Jesus and is the source through which we are able to live godly lives

Our desire is to encourage other women as we share our thoughts and experiences as well as Biblical truths.

Surrendering to a Life of Uncertainty

By Jenny Hanna | January 19, 2018 | 8 Comments

The idea of life being outside of my control has always been something I have grappled with. You see, I don’t like change; in fact, I loathe it. Change and I have not-so-peacefully coexisted for many years now, and I still struggle with accepting that it will always be a part of my life. I remember starting my senior year of high school and thinking to myself, “this is just a transition year, transitioning out of high school and into college, but after that the dust will settle.” Right? Absolutely wrong. I soon realized the dust never really settles. To an extent life may be more consistent at times, rather than being in a state of utter chaos, but at the same time life is never going to be certain. As someone who struggles with anxiety, I hate that concept because I want control. I wish every part of my…

Uncertainty in Crisis

By Rebecca Montie Preston | January 17, 2018 | 12 Comments

Annually, around the Christmas season, my husband and I have a tradition of getting together with another couple we see only a few times a year. We’ve known them for some time now, having attended the same church at one time. And although we no longer worship together or even live in the same county, we have been able to maintain the friendship. It’s a great time of catching up and sometimes reminiscing. This year we talked about the season when my husband was being treated for his cancer. We laughed about his food choices – he could only eat Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee in a can and Boar’s Head roast beef. The conversation turned when my friend said to me, “You were so strong during this time.” “No, I was a mess.” “From what you wrote it seemed like you were going through it so well. I kept saying that God must…

The Banishment of Uncertainty

By Diane Karchner | January 15, 2018 | 10 Comments

I have been uncertain a bazillion times in my life. I’ve been uncertain about my husband’s love for me, about my need to eat vegetables, about whether my mom would live until Christmas, about whether I was capable of writing a book. I’ve been uncertain – shaky, even – of important things, of things that carried great weight. Salvation and forgiveness and grace. And I’ve been uncertain about silly things – of things that had no impact on life or safety or love or eternity. When I have been uncertain, it felt real. It felt heavy with importance. Often for me, uncertainty sapped my confidence. It felt like I was walking on a tight rope without a net below me. Mary and Joseph were uncertain when they walked into the stable that night, sensing this would be their delivery room. Jesus sent out 72 disciples to tell of the nearness…
