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.

You’re Invited

By Laura Rodgers | June 19, 2019

This morning when I roused awake for a bit, my world was absolutely quiet! New fallen snow has a way of making that happen. No birds chirping or animal sounds. No cars whizzing by or buses taking kids to school. Just silence. I had the thought that this must have been what is was like on the seventh day of creation. The world was silent and resting. I felt the sense that God was inviting me to rest a little…

Extravagantly Equipped

By Carmen Dillon | June 12, 2019

Have you ever felt cheated? Inadequate? Wanting? I have. On nights when unfulfilled desires haunt my dreams, I wake up feeling that I’ve been cheated. While sitting on my bedroom floor and attempting to piece together a Sunday school lesson, I’ve sensed my inadequacy to reach the hearts of teens. And in my prayer life, among other things, I’ve certainly found myself wanting. But do you know what I’ve learned? I’m not cheated, inadequate, or wanting, for I have an…

Flying Solo

By Natalie Liounis | June 5, 2019

Between November 2018 and February 2019, my husband spent nearly 40 days in Denver. This made for way too many nights alone, and way too many days of being the only one responsible for the dog. Thankfully, I had the opportunity to spend the first eight days of 2019 with him, flying out on New Year’s Day to visit a state I’d always wanted to visit. Besides going to bed, waking up, catching a Colorado Avalanche game one evening, and…

Sustained Through Despair

By Beth Bingaman | May 29, 2019

When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive. ~Psalm 69:32 A friend called to ask me what the Bible says about suicide. I had to do some digging and still have as many questions as answers. At the same time, I remembered the reviving of a plant that was leveled by a hail storm a few years ago. I had a Gerbera daisy in a large pot on the back patio.…
