God is Not Quarantined

by Kristyn Perez

“Quarantine”—it’s a word I rarely used prior to 2020. I probably could have defined it but had no need to use the word in everyday conversations. Why would I? But now, like everyone else, “quarantine” is a part of my regular vocabulary.…

How to Pray Scripture

By Kristyn Perez
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co.

A few weeks ago, a friend from church plopped down on my sofa as we started our bi-weekly time of discipleship together. She recently came to faith and is still learning the basics of Christianity.…

This Year, Resolve to Love God Better

By Sarah Morrison
Former Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co.

I have long been fascinated by the orthodox Jewish tradition of wearing phylacteries. Leather boxes filled with Scripture are strapped to an individual’s left arm and forehead. These are worn during periods of prayer, and their design is to direct the wearer’s mind to God.…

Believe, and Keep Saying Yes

By Esther Blair 
Guest Contributor 

Have you ever found yourself in a season you never expected, and you feel desperate? Desperate to the point that you are pleading for an answer, for help, for God to show up?

Former Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Exodus 17 tells a story of Israel defeating Amalek against all odds. Up to this point in the book of Exodus, we observe a history of God calling Moses to do things out of the ordinary and then working miracles through them—a staff turns into a serpent, water spills from a rock, manna falls from heaven. Exodus 17:8-14 shares yet another story:

The Best Gift Giver

By Kristyn Perez 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I was sitting with my friend at the local, college coffee shop as she anxiously gripped her steaming coffee mug. She struggled to look me in the eyes. Nervously, she fiddled with her hair and glanced side to side around the room, almost as if to make sure that he wasn’t there. …

The Sea and Her Monsters

By Sarah Morrison 
Former Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co.
