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.

Hearts Lie ~ God Doesn’t

By Carmen Dillon | February 6, 2019

I remember once flipping through TV channels and stopping to watch Pocahontas. As Pocahontas tried to decide whom she should marry, how to react to the Englishmen, and whether or not to save John Smith, I watched a tree transform into an old woman who chanted, “Listen to your heart.” And then I watched Pocahontas announce to her father, “I must follow my heart.” From her position next to me on the couch, my mom’s quiet, low voice chanted back:…

Christians Leak

By Diane Karchner | January 30, 2019

The Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. ~Hebrews 4:12 {ESV} When I first started to seriously memorize Bible verses a few years ago, the first one that I tackled was Hebrews 4:12. I learned from ingesting this one verse that the Bible wasn’t just stories and familiar verses from Sunday school.…

Timely Obstacles

By Cole Smith | January 23, 2019

When writing a new novel, I’ve discovered a major weakness in my plotting. I don’t like to put obstacles in my character’s path. Sure, it’s fiction, but my poor protagonist has been through so much already. Can’t I just give her a little break, a vacation chapter, so she can relax and gather herself? It’s a good thing God’s not like me. He knows that our obstacles can be our biggest blessings. Just like no one wants to read a…

Washed and Ready

By Natalie Liounis | January 16, 2019

For the past year, I’ve been leading a small Bible study on the campus of the community college I work for. We have been meeting on Wednesdays at 11:30 am, and while I don’t always have even more than one student join me, the conversations are always fruitful. One Wednesday in December, the week before finals, I was reading through the first part of John 13 with two girls. This is an account of Jesus washing His disciples’ feet before…
