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.

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…

Januarys are Worse than Mondays

By Laura Rodgers | January 12, 2018 | 6 Comments

In my opinion, Januarys are worse than Mondays by a long shot. It is my least favorite time of the year. First, I have mixed emotions about putting away the Christmas stuff. The only way I can think of to describe it is “painfully wonderful”. I’m tired of Christmas, but I’m sad to see it go. Makes no sense, I know. Secondly, it’s cold and dark. All I really want to do between January and the middle of March is hibernate; eat, sleep, and stay in fuzzy PJ’s until I see the first sign of spring. Then there’s all this talk of resolutions and goal setting. “What’s your New Year’s Resolution?” I have learned to loathe those words because typically, if I’m honest with myself, it should involve dieting and being healthier, neither of which I enjoy. My New Year’s Resolutions usually go something like this: January 1st, “I’m going…

Firm in Faith

By Natalie Liounis | January 10, 2018 | 5 Comments

In November, I wrote about church hunting after moving. By the time that post was published, the hubs and I had decided on a church. It’s tiny (fewer than 50 people, I’d guess) and turns just a year old this month. Given our previous churches, it’s definitely not the church I would have expected we’d fall in love with. But God knew what He was doing when He brought us into that middle school. You see, the hubs and I have been searching for friends ever since we moved to Maryland. We’ve made friends at work, of course, but we’ve been searching for the same type of community we had at school through our church and through campus ministry when we were undergraduates. We’ve been searching for a solid small group with whom we can eat dinner and then dive into the Word, and after two and a half years,…
