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.

This Isn’t How It’s Supposed To Be

By Sarah Eshleman | January 22, 2020

Last April, I opened my Facebook news feed to find that my friend Alan had passed on to heaven. Afflicted with muscular dystrophy, Alan lived in a wheelchair—and I mean lived. Despite drawing every breath from a respirator, he was not stingy with his oxygen but gave it away in gentle compliments, caring questions, quips, facts, and jokes. He was one of the brightest, most grateful humans I’ve known. A heaviness fell over me, even as I imagined his restored…

Give Hilariously

By Diane Karchner | January 15, 2020

God is able to make ALL grace abound to you, so that with ALL sufficiency, in ALL things, at ALL times, you may abound in EVERY good work. ~2 Corinthians 9:8 {ESV} Giving to God can be a tricky concept. It certainly was for us. A few months after we stepped over the line of faith – young, excited, naïve, trusting, wide-eyed – I started working part time at a church helping the teachers in their Christian school. It was…

Future Benefits

By Beth Bingaman | January 8, 2020

But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children ~ Psalm 103:17   My maternal grandmother died when I was four. I don’t remember much about her. I was almost forty when I came to faith in Jesus Christ. Within a span of a few years, four of my siblings, a couple of nieces and sister-in-laws, and I all came to understand God’s call to believe…

Sufficient to Sustain

By Natalie Liounis | December 4, 2019

When I was pregnant, several people asked me if I planned to breastfeed or bottle feed the baby. I always told them the same thing: I plan to breastfeed, unless it doesn’t work. I put that caveat in there because there are reasons why breastfeeding just doesn’t work sometimes. I know some women who had a true low milk supply due to various reasons, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid issues, or previous breast surgeries. These reasons don’t apply to…
