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.

Grace Experienced

By Rebecca Montie Preston | September 14, 2015 | 16 Comments

Grace:  One of my favorite words.  Grace has such a vast array of meanings to people.  To some grace is involved in the gift of salvation.  To others, it is a way of being, how one moves or interacts with others.  Grace is often viewed as the prayer offered before a meal.   As I meditated on the word ‘grace’, I was drawn to the experiential.  What would the experience of grace look like in my life?  Thus I began a month long practice of noticing grace in my everyday world. The month passed with a greater awareness of the presence of Grace in my life. One day I was driving home down one of the back roads of Pennsylvania that I love to take.  Suddenly I took in a whiff of freshly mowed grass.  Immediately, I slowed down and looked for the source of the scent.  The hay fields were…

Grace and God’s Love

By Tina Kachmar | September 11, 2015 | 13 Comments

My entire life I’ve been a “fair weather” Jesus follower. But it was never during the “fair weather” that I turned to him. I’ve always turned to God when things were going bad in my life and he has always come through for me. As soon as things began looking up, though, I forgot him like yesterday’s news. Since I committed my heart to him for the final time a few years ago, I’ve had some opportunity to reflect upon times there was grace in my life. Times that I never took notice. A lot has happened in my life during these past six years. Six years ago I had a new baby, a marriage, my brother was alive, I hadn’t seen my mother since 1990, and my life was full of people whom I loved. My baby is now six, I’m divorced, my brother is in Heaven, my mother…

Grace Is Too Easy

By Diane Karchner | September 9, 2015 | 12 Comments

Grace is too easy. That’s what makes it so hard. God soaks us in it, then we are to soak everyone else. Easy peasy. That is until you have to actually do it. On any given day I can let Grace flow.  And the very next, dam it up completely. I used to have what I called my “insider trading” conversations going on in my head full-time. Now they’re just part-time, but they still sound the same. “Well, if she would…then I will…” “Hey, if he hadn’t…then I won’t…” “I think she did that on purpose, so I will not…” “She didn’t even send me a birthday card, so I won’t…her.” I drew these imaginary lines, then made up gunk to stick between them that I rolled between my fingers like play dough to form arrows and barbs and sticks and stones that I used to build my dam. Mental…
