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.

God’s Loving Letter

By Beth Bingaman | December 18, 2017 | 14 Comments

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. ~Matthew 9:36 Jesus spoke to large crowds filled with disciples, curiosity seekers, and opponents. He didn’t change His message based on whom was in the crowd. His expectations were (and still are) the same for those who followed Him and those who would not. I remember being taught that the Bible is God’s “love letter,” written to His people. The point being made was that it is for Christians. No one else would understand it, or be able to follow it. To expect it of them was foolishness on the part of Christians. At the time, I believed that teaching. I still understand that the Lord left His people the scriptures so we would be well-informed about who He is and what he expects of us. This is a loving…

Pretty Paper and a Shiny Bow

By Laura Rodgers | December 15, 2017 | 5 Comments

It’s December already! Each year I am on this earth it comes quicker and quicker. I feel like it’s January, June, and then December. A whole year in 3 months. How is that possible? When I was a little girl it seemed like the time from the Sears and Roebucks Gift Catalog came in the mail until Christmas Day took forever. I love Christmas! I love everything about it. The smells. The tastes. The sounds. The sights. And oh, the feels! Christmas gets my emotions up and running full scale. I want to do for everyone. I want to give to everyone. I want to make it the most magical and enchanting time of the year as I possibly can…until I can’t! It hit me several years ago. Our family was on an excursion to the mall to purchase gifts for each other. We had lunch together, after which the…

Choosing Love

By Cole Smith | December 12, 2017 | 3 Comments

One of my friends from our nine-member graduating class calls once a year. He’s one of the most motivated people I know. In fact, some of the rest of us nicknamed him ‘Guru’. Neither he nor I are very good at small talk, so this yearly call tends to be a three-hour soul purge of goal setting, insights, encouragement and corny jokes from high school. Last December, he said something that I’ve been considering all year long. “Everything that feels good tends to be bad for us,” he said. “Sugar, lying on the sofa, junk food, alcohol – all that stuff feels great in the short-term. A lot of times, what feels bad in the short-term is what’s good for us. It’s what grows us.” Dang it, Guru. He’s right; the easy choice isn’t always the best choice. This doesn’t mean we should pile on responsibilities, making life very hard.…
