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.

Trust in the Wisdom of a Child

By Diane Karchner | October 12, 2018

Lotti’s trust sometimes overwhelms me. My two-year-old granddaughter trusts so sweetly, so completely. As we walk to the top of the stairs after her nap, she grabs my hand instinctively, knowing that I will keep her safe. Her travel down the steps will be okay because Gram’s got a hold of her little hand. Complete, innocent, pure trust. Childlike trust. The kind that Jesus taught about in Matthew 18. Let me set the stage for his amazing teaching. The disciples…

I Got It! I Got It!

By Beth Bingaman | October 10, 2018

And have mercy on those who doubt. ~Jude 1:22   What a roller coaster ride! Up, down, and all over the place. Joy, sorrow, satisfaction, grief, illness, and news of improved health, all in the space of a couple of weeks. Then, it seems that there have been more spiritually challenging conversations with other people this month than I have had for the rest of the year. It can be hard to explain the sovereignty of God to someone who is…

Trusting the Questions & Questioning the Answers

By Sarah Eshleman | October 8, 2018

Sometimes I’ll pipe up in a conversation with my opinion. “Oh, you don’t want to live in Newport. It’s a terrible side of town” or “I’d never vote for that candidate. He’s awful!” Just then, when I’m listening, I’ll hear a quiet little voice in my head say, “Hey.” And I know I’m in for it. “How do you know that about Newport, Sarah? Did you do research on crime stats? Did you tune into the police band? Did you…

Adrift in the Storm

By Cole Smith | October 4, 2018

The storm had the quality of chaos that melts one’s courage. Where the orderly world once existed—and the illusion of control—there was the unhinging of helpless terror. Had they ever been ripped by a wind so strong? The boat spun and bucked on the waves like a piece of tree bark, tiny in the midst of the powerful squall. “Look!” one shouted, and they all swung to follow his outstretched hand, pointing toward the horizon. There, in the maelstrom, a…
