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.

Our Future’s Kingdom View

By Diane Karchner | July 29, 2020

For years I ignored this fascination that others have had with their ancestry, with their roots. I didn’t see the need or the use for it. At all. That is, until I got cataracts. I know that’s a strange leap, but these tiny little things on my eyes – too small to even remove yet – got me thinking about end of life stuff. You know, that time, when you wonder if you’ve done all you want to do, said…

Practicing the Principles of Peace

By Sarah Robinson | July 22, 2020

How did we get so far out of balance? In the beginning was perfection, the likes of which our world today cannot fathom. Creation flowed in skilled precision as if the wind, rain, and sunshine were on a perfect release schedule, nature’s acrobatic dance over all the earth. But suddenly, the rain turned to snow and ice. We slipped and fell. Our world has been steadily slipping off the great balance beam. No perfection exists between human beings, no matter…

Going Home

By Natalie Liounis | July 1, 2020

Late in 2019, I officially made the decision to quit my job and stay home with my daughter. It was simultaneously the hardest and easiest decision I’ve ever had to make. It was hard because I love my former colleagues at the community college and enjoyed working with them; it was easy because, I mean, have you seen my daughter? She is the most incredible thing. Another reason it was hard to leave my job is God used me at…

Rejoicing Abundantly

By Diane Karchner | June 24, 2020

Over a decade ago I was involved in a women’s group through which I got to speak in front of large groups. I have a few real fears, but speaking in front of people is not one of them. So I greatly enjoyed those times, believing that this was my God-given skill and talent to do so. At the time, although I spoke of Christian life and the Bible and God and Jesus, I never really got beyond my pride…
