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.

When Grace Becomes Instinct

By Penny J. Kendall | September 28, 2015 | 13 Comments

It’s been more than a decade since the 40th President to the United States, Ronald Reagan, passed from this life but I clearly remember the days our nation, world leaders, and precious loved ones remembered him, honored him, and said their goodbyes. Among those who spoke tributes to him at his burial service were his children; Michael, Patti and Ron — his special ones who knew him in the private places away from the public eye. Their words touched my heart that day and they continue to challenge me even now as I recall them. History will record his worth as a leader. We here have long since measured his worth as a man. Honest, compassionate, graceful, brave. He was the most plainly decent man you could ever hope to meet. He used to say, a gentleman always does the kind thing. And he was a gentleman in the truest…

Brushstrokes of His Grace

By Gretchen Hanna | September 25, 2015 | 12 Comments

It’s funny. The word ‘grace’ seems to be all around me. That ballerina moves with such grace. I’ve never seen a more gracious host. May God pour down grace upon grace. And this is what I’m discovering: Whether used in secular situations (e.g. sports, etiquette) or not, I believe grace is a gift from the Father. In fact, in Christian circles, it’s defined as an unmerited gift from God. A professional football player running down the sidelines for a spectacular touchdown (Go Seahawks) and a prima ballerina have both been touched by grace. How? Both have put in thousands of hours of training; however, training alone doesn’t mean that s/he will be successful. I believe that the seed of passion and ability is a gift of grace from God. Talents – we don’t create them, we develop them—and we certainly don’t deserve them. The gracious host has been given the…

Steeped In Grace

By Denise Frank | September 23, 2015 | 8 Comments

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen and settle you. 1 Peter 5:10 (AMP) Grace is freely given, the unmerited favor and love of God.  The last three years of my life have been fully laced in God’s grace, His unmerited favor and love.  When at the lowest point of my life, where I thought I was going to lose my mind, God said not so and showered His love upon me.  When I thought the situation I was in would consume me, God’s grace is what kept me.  I didn’t deserve it because I was lost and kept taking back the issues I asked Him to deliver me…
