What do you do when you just don’t want to hang out with your church family? When you find it difficult to foster relationships in church? Or if you just find church life a bit mundane? Perhaps you’re a new Christian, and you walk into a church full of people you have little in common with, and you don’t know how to relate to them; or maybe you just feel like you never quite fit in anywhere, no matter where you go. It can be hard to deal with these struggles, especially when we know that church should be something good, a blessing, and an important part in our Christian life. The struggle is real. I have been there.…

Who Will Be with You in the Fire? 

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

We’ve all been through fires—burnt, scorned, and seared. And as long as our feet are planted on this earth, we will go through more. There is no shortage of suffering for this world to dole out to its inhabitants—relationships, jobs, and bodies have all been ravaged by a broken and dissonant world—a world that needs more of Jesus. …

Accountability Relationships

By Aubrey Coleman 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

In the middle of government orders to stay at home during Covid-19, many of us found ourselves alone in our homes with little human interaction. Aside from a roommate, a spouse, children, or parents, many of us were forced to see friends virtually through our phones and computer screens.…
