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.

Thinking Fast

By Jennifer Mobley Thompson | March 13, 2018

Every January, my church does a congregation-wide week of fasting. It looks different for everyone. Some do a complete fast from food for three days, while some omit a meal every day for the week. Others cut out sugar or sodas, or any food they feel an addiction to. And then there are those who don’t do a food fast, but rather abstain from Social Media, television or other non-edible distractions. The church provides a prayer guide for the week,…

Imposed Fasting

By Rebecca Montie Preston | March 9, 2018

Several years ago, I had a minor surgical procedure. It was scheduled in the afternoon, which was the first time I’ve not had a surgery in the morning. For this surgery I was given the standard instructions: nothing by mouth (NPO) after midnight. I reacted immediately: this is ridiculous. When I’ve had surgeries in the morning I was told to fast after midnight. Why would I fast longer for an afternoon surgery? I pointed this out to Nurse Ratchet, but…

Fast Dogs

By Diane Tarantini | March 7, 2018

“Are you praying for them to come home, Daddy?” At the dinner table, Middle Child Drama Girl’s big brown eyes focused on my husband. She was talking about our two dogs—Daisy May and Little Paint Lou—the ones that ran away. At least once a month. This particular time, they’d been gone eight days. When Tony glared, she switched her gaze to me. “Are you praying for the dogs to come back, Mommy?” I didn’t look up from my pork chop.…

Adding Fasting to Praying

By Beth Bingaman | March 5, 2018

Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes. Daniel 9:3 A friend asked me to pray. She felt the issue was big enough in her life that she was going to fast as well as pray. She had recently read the Book of Daniel and was following his example. Driven to Pray In Daniel 9:2 Daniel understands, from the Word of God, that the exile…
