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.

Grace and Spilt Milk

The other day, I was sitting at a restaurant with a friend of mine and her husband. The waiter had just set our drinks in front of us and I opened my menu to try to decide what to eat. I was having a hard time choosing, even though I…

Grace Experienced

By Rebecca Montie Preston

Grace:  One of my favorite words.  Grace has such a vast array of meanings to people.  To some grace is involved in the gift of salvation.  To others, it is a way of being, how one moves or interacts with others.  Grace is often viewed as the prayer offered before…

Grace and God’s Love

By Tina Kachmar

My entire life I’ve been a “fair weather” Jesus follower. But it was never during the “fair weather” that I turned to him. I’ve always turned to God when things were going bad in my life and he has always come through for me. As soon as things began looking…

Grace Is Too Easy

By Diane Karchner

Grace is too easy. That’s what makes it so hard. God soaks us in it, then we are to soak everyone else. Easy peasy. That is until you have to actually do it. On any given day I can let Grace flow.  And the very next, dam it up completely.…

Remember What God Has Done

By Terri Stone

It’s a fact of life; we forget things. We forget little things like where we put our keys, telephone numbers, or to leave something out for dinner. We also tend to forget more important things like a friend’s birthday, an anniversary, or what made us fall in love with our…

Mamas Can Change The World

By April Jean

  7:30 PM: I stand in front of the mirror prepping my face for the night. 7:45 PM: A thought passes through my mind similar to, “This is a bad idea.” (Ever have one of those thoughts? Maybe, like me, at times you’ve ignored it too) 8:30 PM: So I proceed.…
