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.

Goodbye 2017. Hello Uncertainty.

By Sarah Robinson | January 8, 2018 | 13 Comments

“If you don’t know what to do, don’t do anything.” When I first heard this saying, I’d been feeling pressured to have a response–what to say—to those who’d called, who’d asked for an explanation of how/why my life had so abruptly changed. One minute I was a full-blown party girl, and the next, well…I wasn’t. The year was 1986. How was I to explain my life-changing decision? How would they understand the miraculous changes I’d begun to feel deep inside, without me explaining in detail what had happened? I dreaded rehashing the years of horrendous hangovers, terrible regrets, and the consequences that had all led to my new-found sobriety. “You don’t owe anybody an explanation,” my recovering friend said. “I don’t?” I thought, the people-pleaser in me wondering what it would be like to actually keep things to myself. So, I practiced a few new responses, ones that sounded okay…

The Certain in Uncertainty

By Beth Bingaman | January 5, 2018 | 6 Comments

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit” —  yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.  Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” ~James 4:13-15 Years ago I worked in a hospital in an office on the same hallway as the Pediatric Chemotherapy Department. Every day I saw parents and children trudging up the hallway to go into a world they would never have asked to enter. The nurses in that office would tell us that the children were amazing. They paid attention and had as much knowledge of their treatment as their parents. They were quick to correct a…

Perfect Love

By Denise Frank | December 28, 2017 | 8 Comments

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ~1 John 4:18 I understand even more so why God created our physical lives to unfold in His way. He created man with a certain end goal in mind. That goal is to love him wholeheartedly with no distractions. To have a relationship with Him that trumps all other relationships. However, when sin entered the world, God took a backseat to everything in our lives. Because of that, people enter into all sorts of relationships seeking to fill a void, yet not realizing that only God can fill that empty place within. Marriages end because people fall out of love or seek love outside of that union. Love is an action verb and requires showing by way of doing. God shows…
