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.

The Chaos of my Garden Faith

By Diane Karchner | June 6, 2018

I garden. For fun. For eye-appeal when I sit on my deck sipping a tea. For show-offing to the neighbor slackers. For relaxation. When I was still heavy into the corporate work life, I called it my stress relief, my sanity enhancer. And it was. Many a tangled root that took on an imagined face of a troubling co-worker got chopped into shreds so ‘it could be healthy and multiply.’ It did. My stress was relieved. My sanity enhanced. I…

God Hears!

By Sarah Robinson | June 4, 2018

The summer of 1964, I was five years old, vacationing in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Dad picks up an empty conch shell larger than his own hand, and holds it up like treasured bounty–no cracks or chips. I expect he’ll put it down into his bucket but instead, he fastens the shell to his ear, like a telephone. “Let me hear!” I say, reaching for the shell. He hands it to me. “Hold it on your ear real tight,” he says.…

The Sage of Experience

By Denise Frank | May 31, 2018

Wisdom is with aged men, with long life is understanding. ~ Job 12:12   The older I get, the more I realize God allowed me to go through major trials and tribulations to mold and shape me into the woman I am today. Many tell me they admire my determined spirit that never gives up. In knowing my life story, they admit that the faint of heart would not have survived the things I have endured. Though bearing scars from…

Empathy, Experience and God’s Call to Speak Up

By Sis Steele | May 29, 2018

Learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow. ~Isaiah 1:17 NRSV   We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin “I’ve never met an activist member of the Evangelical Left before!” The woman stood before me with wide eyes. “How did you get there?” That got me pondering. We believe social justice and Jesus should be our guides, with Scripture as…
