God Cares for the Small Things, Too

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Last month, my husband and I sent off one of our cars to a mechanic. We intended to sell it if the problem we were dealing with could be resolved. As I prepared to have all things pertaining to the car in order, I soon realized the title to our car was nowhere to be found.…

Cultivate What You Crave

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for the Daily Grace Co.  

Our family loves to eat salmon. Whenever we go to Sam’s Club, my 6-year old asks us to buy the big package of fresh salmon.

Nothing to Prove

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

During my first pregnancy, I was blissfully ignorant. I was a new nurse in a competitive nurse residency program. I studied cardiac rhythms instead of poring over parenting books. Our immediate friends didn’t have kids, so the topics of our conversations were more often good books and under appreciated hole-in-the-wall restaurants, not the million and one choices involved in parenthood. …

Jeremiah 32:17
