Anxiety is not Mine

A Word Fitly Spoken

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Can you recall a time in your life when someone shared some really hard truths with you? A time when you were called out on your sin, confronted with ways you’d wronged someone, or simply listened to someone tell you something you really didn’t want to hear?…

Preaching the Gospel to Yourself

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I used to think the gospel was just for unbelievers. It was the good news for salvation and not much more. But as I grew in my understanding of Scripture, I realized that, while the gospel certainly does matter for one’s moment of salvation, it also extends to every single aspect of life moving forward. You see, the gospel is for unbelievers and believers alike because the gospel is for sinners. Though we are declared positionally holy because of Christ at the moment of our salvation, that moment also signifies the beginning of our journey of sanctification on this side of eternity.  

But what is sanctification, and why do we need the gospel for it?

What If It Is Not Well With My Soul?

By Rachael Restrick
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 13 

My son has started lying. Apparently, this is normal toddler behavior, but I feel like I must already be failing as a parent. The upside is the hilarity of him not really understanding what it means yet.…

“Do Your Quiet Time”

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Growing up in the church, the resounding exhortation I heard in youth group was this: do your quiet time! Essentially, what the leaders were getting at was this: read the Bible and pray consistently! And they’re right – right? These are essential spiritual disciplines for all believers! However, I clearly remember the struggle to follow through. I would attend a youth conference and come home fired up.…

Knowing God’s Word from the Inside and Out

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co.

When I first started walking with Jesus, I remember being so mesmerized by women who could reference scripture without their Bibles. Searching for understanding, I surrounded myself with those who knew God’s Word deeply and let it pour out of their lives. I craved that kind of knowledge of the Bible.…

Take Heart: Full Sun is Coming

By Sarah Morrison
Originally Published in the Be Still Magazine, Issue 6 

Second Peter 1 is an anthem. Peter knows he’s about to be martyred for the cause of Christ, and he’s writing to fellow believers in order to remind them of what they already know: Christ is the sufficient source of all knowledge, and His Word is trustworthy and strongly confirmed. 

How Can a Loving God Allow People to go to Hell?

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I recently found myself telling my daughter (age 6), “There’s no such thing as a dumb question.” I wanted to encourage and engage her curiosity. Like most families, we strive to protect wonder and curiosity and open communication in our home. We enjoy hearing our kids’ questions, even when the occasional incessant string of “why’s” has the potential to drive a person mad. This is because questions are powerful.…

Making the Most of the Lord’s Time

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

When looking to the week to come, do you grab your calendar and prioritize the events of the week, filling in the spaces with extra house work or errands? Or do you prepare for scheduling in prayer, asking God to shape your time in the way He desires it to be spent?…

A Quiet Life is Hidden in Christ

Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

A tranquil evening in the Coleman household was once interrupted by a seemingly intrusive commercial shouting,  “If you are going to live… LIVE LOUD!” The ad, encouraging viewers to purchase a new model of a car brand, sought to lure the audience in with flashing images of fast cars, bright lights, wealth, and fame.…

Sin and the Gift of Repentance

By Chelsi Woods
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 10 

Sin is something that is addressed less and less in the church these days. It is almost like we are so worried about stepping on toes that we don’t call for any accountability. I think many of us are afraid to address our own sin because we know we are forgiven.…

Reading the Bible When Your Kids are Little

By Kristyn Perez
Lamp and Light Leader for The Daily Grace Co. 

I was recently talking to a mom of little ones who was feeling guilty that she wasn’t spending more time in the Word. She gets up three to five times a night with her young kids and can’t seem to get out of bed in the mornings before they wake up.…
