Homesick

By Bethany Mathis  
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 6 

When I was a child, I was rarely homesick. I loved spending the night with friends or grandparents, going on vacations or to camp. I really don’t remember a time when I longed for my home.…

We Get Richer from Our Aching

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

I was once given the advice to “steward your disappointments.” I thought that I understood it then, but I more certainly understand it now. I don’t have to talk about my own sufferings or disappointments in order to convey to you the weightiness and distress that come alongside difficulty.…

On Being Interrupted by God

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

Sickness has found its way into my household. My young kids who struggle to share their toys seem glad to share their germs—cycling colds, eye infections, and tummy aches throughout our family for weeks on end.…

A Call to Remember

By Jana White  
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co.  

God often called His people to remember. In Deuteronomy 8, we see a particular case of Moses calling the people of God to do that very thing. Although it can be difficult for us to remember previous seasons in our lives, there is value in remembering where we have been and how the Lord has been faithful to us in every season—in good and bad, in discipline and in assurance.…

Seeing God: A Pre/Post Quarantine Reflection

By Caitlyn Baldwin 
Guest Contributor 

When you look back on 2020, what do you want to see? It might be tempting to focus on the things that didn’t turn out like you thought they would. For me, that looks like time not able to spend with family for fear of the risk, the trips that were postponed, events large and small that were cancelled, a quarter of my first year of grad school moved online, a job put on hold.…

When the Bough Breaks

By Kelly Fowler 
Guest Contributor 

Picture this: I’m sitting on my comfortable couch in my beautiful home with my wonderful husband asleep in the next room. My refrigerator is full, my car that carries me wherever I need to go is tucked into the garage, and a quiet hum reminds me that I have air conditioning keeping me cool.…

Power in the Name of Jesus

By Aubrey Coleman 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

As I ran through my list of errands, I found myself stopped at a red light with low volume lyrics playing from the radio, making themselves stand out in the background, “there is power in the name of Jesus.” I had not been paying attention to the song, but for some reason the line made me stop in thought.…

Friends Don’t Let Friends Continue in Sin

By Aubrey Coleman 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

“Friends don’t let friends drink decaf coffee,” is a jovial meme in a post that I scroll past on my social media feed. Because this phrase is often used humorously, I was surprised to learn that, “friends don’t let friends,” was actually coined by a drunk driving slogan in the 1980s that read: “Friends don’t let friends drink and drive.” This expression is often used to discourage inappropriate, harmful, undesirable, or unwanted behaviors.…
