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.

Whatever Is Lovely

By Jennifer Mobley Thompson | November 2, 2015

November’s word theme is “Thankfulness”. Seems kind of like a no brainer with Thanksgiving at the end of the month and all. But there is another, more personal reason I chose it. This November I will turn 50 and I’ve been cancer-free for ten years. Two big milestones to be thankful for. It wouldn’t be hard to write a 10,000 word essay on all that I appreciate. I live in a first world country, reason enough for the majority of…

Faith Over Fear

By Tara Watson | October 30, 2015

Last month, I underwent surgery to have a benign tumor removed from my lip. Eeeew gross, I know. A few days post-surgery, I found myself gently stuffing mashed potatoes into the corner of my mouth while whining to my husband that “if I knew exactly how much pain this surgery would cause, I would have lived with the stupid tumor.” Change can be painful, unpredictable and downright scary. How many times have we been smack dab in the middle of…

Faith, Hope & Change

By Tina Kachmar | October 28, 2015

Sometimes I find it interesting what different thoughts people have about being a follower of Jesus.  I’ve known God a long time, but I used to believe I had to work toward changing everything in my life to be accepted by him. Everything sinful, that is.  And that’s a lot of stuff. Like a lot of stuff. I have a longtime friend that thinks he would have to give up his heavy metal music and extremely sarcastic personality to become a Christian. …

Changing Time

By Amber Lappin | October 26, 2015

When my kids were toddlers, there was one way to get them to run and hide… announce that I was going to change their diapers. It was the oddest thing to me- here I was, offering to relieve them of a smelly, wet, nasty burden, and there they were, crying and struggling to get away as I forced a change upon them.  I could just not convince them to believe that this change would make their lives incrementally better.  It…
