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.

Last Thinks

By Diane Karchner

Let your last thinks all be thanks. W.H. Auden, poet Thanksgiving is such a wonderful thing, isn’t it? We have so much, so we give thanks. Simple. Easy peezy. But we humans never seem to like the simple. Somehow we think simple is missing out, that we are leaving something…

What About You?

By Katie Thompson

Every Thanksgiving during dinner, which usually turns into a late lunch, my mom makes us all go around the table and say what we’re thankful for. When I was younger it use to be simple or silly things like “I’m thankful for my toys” or “I’m thankful for my friends.”…

Thankfulness: Nature or Nurture?

By Terri Stone

Saying “thank you” is one of the first things our parents taught us to say. I hear my daughters tell their children all the time, “Say thank you to…” My older grandchildren say it without being prompted and one of the little ones, who’s just learning to talk, uses sign…
