Living in Light of the Resurrection, Part One

By Stefanie Boyles 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Easter was a couple of weeks ago. Many of us intentionally leaned into the beauty and truth of the resurrection on Resurrection Sunday. We worshipped at the glorious truth that HE IS RISEN! But I’m wondering: how many of us are living in light of the resurrection today? Because the truth remains: He is risen indeed! The blessing we have on this side of the cross is that we get to live in light of this truth! 

But what does it even mean to “live in light of the resurrection”? It’s a phrase that can easily roll off our tongues.…

Present Troubles, Glorious Future

By Stefanie Boyles

I can’t help but think, “Someone is going to make a movie about COVID-19 one day.” It feels surreal. At the moment, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending 8 weeks of social distancing, which means we should strive to stay 6-feet away from people outside of our immediate families.…

Don’t Be a Mama Martyr

By Stefanie Boyles 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

One of my favorite quotes is by Goethe, and it reads, “Cease endlessly striving for what you want to do and learn to love what must be done.”  It sits on my windowsill by my kitchen sink—I can conveniently read it while doing the dishes. It’s in a strategic location—I find myself standing in front of that particular window quite often as a mom of three little ones who seem to need at least three meals a day along with countless snacks. It reminds me to find joy in the glorious mundane of motherhood. It beckons my heart to delight in this particular calling, and it reminds me to serve my family as if I were serving the Lord. 

But over the years, I’ve realized a tendency in my heart to swing to the opposite side of the pendulum.…

Gospel Fluency, not Over Spiritualization

By Stefanie Boyles

I was jogging on our dusty treadmill the other day. It had accumulated dust because it’s in our garage, and it hadn’t been used for months aside from being a flat surface for a tower of boxes. But alas, I decided to finally take 20 minutes that random day to exercise. It was nearing the end of January, so I didn’t feel the motivation that naturally comes with the turn of a new year.…

Fighting the Fight of Faith

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I don’t like confrontation. I don’t like tension. I don’t like resistance. I don’t like hard. Instead, I prefer harmony. I prefer compliance. I prefer the path of least resistance. I prefer easy. Yet, again and again, I’m confronted with the truth that this life on the narrow path is a fight. The battle is won, yes. Christ conquered the grave, and we can absolutely find hope in His life, death, and resurrection. But the Christian life is an active fight – not against anyone but against sin. Though Christ has paid the penalty of our sins, the presence of sin remains in our lives. So we have to ask ourselves: how are we fighting the sin in our lives today? 

Each of us has different sin patterns that we can identify in our lives. While one person may wrestle with lust, another person may wrestle with unrighteous anger.…

Your Legacy Starts Now

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Before the start of a new year, I take some time to reflect on the previous year. What were highlights from each month? How do I feel each area of my life is doing, like my relationships and personal health and spiritual growth? What lessons have I learned?…
