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 Friends and Family Plan

By Laura Rodgers | August 27, 2018

It started many years ago when my kids were in elementary school. We would pack up and go to the far-off country of Texas, the native land. The land where most all of our family live. We would go and stay the whole month of July. If you’ve never been to Texas in July, one word sums it up —hot. The kids are grown and this year I traveled alone. And again, it was H-O-T! Capital letters in bold print…

Friendship: Taking the Risk

By Carmen Dillon | August 24, 2018

Students and teachers aren’t supposed to be friends. I know because I was an education major. Every teaching methods class reiterated that teachers are not supposed to be “buddy-buddy” with students. Fortunately, Miss Sarah Eshleman had a degree in writing, not education. She may have heard that principle in faculty meetings, but being the generous person that she is, she seemed to ignore it. In every Creative Writing and Copy Writing class I attended my sophomore year of college, Miss…

The Good Part of Goodbye

By Sarah Eshleman | August 22, 2018

Goodbye has always been a staple word in my vocabulary. During my childhood, I lived 500 miles from my grandparents; twice a year I never said the word goodbye more painfully than as I waved to them from the van window. Years later, I attended college in Florida, 400 miles from home in South Carolina. At the beginning of each semester, I said goodbye to my parents; at the end, I said goodbye to friends. After graduation, when I stayed in Florida, I…

The Mirror Never Lies

By Diane Karchner | August 20, 2018

I had some friends but they’re gone, Somethin’ came and took them away. I don’t care if I’m hungry or poor, I’m gonna get me some of them. ~Friends (Singer: Bette Midler; Songwriters: M.Klingman, B.Linhart)   I have found myself in that place – I had some friends, but they’re gone, somethin’ came and took them away – more times than I can say. I’ve begrudgingly accepted that I was at least partially, if not completely, the cause. Sometimes it…
