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.

A Heart Of Longing

By April Jean

You know what I am always thankful for after the fact? I am thankful that God doesn’t give me what I want right when I want it.  [No, God this is not an invite for more of that!] 😉 In the waiting, there are plenty of tears and stomps of…

Giving Thanks For My Portion

By Gretchen Hanna

“You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.” Are any of you familiar with that saying? I think I first heard it when my eldest child was in preschool – it was said by one of the preschool teachers, and pertained to snack or something equally as…

Thankfulness and Storms

By Sis Steele

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past,…

Whatever Is Lovely

By Jennifer Mobley Thompson

November’s word theme is “Thankfulness”. Seems kind of like a no brainer with Thanksgiving at the end of the month and all. But there is another, more personal reason I chose it. This November I will turn 50 and I’ve been cancer-free for ten years. Two big milestones to be…

Faith Over Fear

By Tara Watson

Last month, I underwent surgery to have a benign tumor removed from my lip. Eeeew gross, I know. A few days post-surgery, I found myself gently stuffing mashed potatoes into the corner of my mouth while whining to my husband that “if I knew exactly how much pain this surgery…

Faith, Hope & Change

By Tina Kachmar

Sometimes I find it interesting what different thoughts people have about being a follower of Jesus.  I’ve known God a long time, but I used to believe I had to work toward changing everything in my life to be accepted by him. Everything sinful, that is.  And that’s a lot…
