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.

Fasting According to Isaiah 58

By Tina Kachmar | March 23, 2018

I was absolutely clueless what I would write about this month.  “Fasting” is not something I’ve ever taken part in.  At least, not that I’ve been aware of. But then I started my Lent devotions and am studying through a Wonderous Encounters: Scripture for Lent by Richard Rohr.   The day I was going to email Jen and let her know that I just couldn’t think of anything to write about, I turned to that day’s devotion and the Chapter in Isaiah…

What I Learned About Fasting – Then and Now

By Jenny Hanna | March 21, 2018

Growing up in the church, I heard about this concept of fasting from time to time. I heard pastors read verses that said to, “fast and pray” or other phrases like that, but I never really gave it a second thought. I had always thought of fasting as simply a personal challenge to give something up briefly in order to grow in your faith, but I was still missing the true point of fasting. The problem with growing up in…

A Lot Like Lent

By Natalie Liounis | March 19, 2018

Growing up Catholic, Lent meant the forty days that I would spend avoiding pop (Pittsburghese for “soda,” if you didn’t know) and eating fried fish on Fridays, or sometimes cheese pizza. Growing up in Catholic school, Lent meant going to mass on a Wednesday and getting ashes put on my forehead, and doing the Stations of the Cross every week. Growing up Catholic, Lent didn’t mean anything different on the weekends—we always went to mass on Saturday. We’d even choose…

Fasting by Failing

By Cole Smith | March 15, 2018

In West Virginia, it’s possible to total your car not only by hitting a deer, but by stopping for a deer and having someone else hit it into you… So after hitching a ride with the tow truck, I saw through the window of the body shop, a small Volkswagen for sale in my mechanic’s lot—literally across the street. Surely, this was a sign. It was the same year and model as my own now-deceased Rabbit. There were two minor…
