Love in the Time of Corona

By Laura K. Weld 
Guest Contributor 

It isn’t explanations we need. It’s a person. We need Jesus Christ, our refuge, our fortress, the stronghold of my life. It takes desolation to teach us our need of Him.

I read Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s classic, Love in the Time of Cholera, probably twenty years ago now.…

The Comparison Game

By Kayla Colvin  
Guest Contributor 

If there’s one thing that this pregnancy has taught me, it’s that I have a terrible habit of comparing myself to others. As my body grows bigger, so does my human nature need for affirmation. With the weekly updates and clickable hashtags, I consistently and begrudgingly find myself comparing my size and lifestyle against women all over the world.…

A Word on Gossip

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

I’ve found that believers often forget about the preciousness of bearing the image of God. This image is God’s fingerprints all over us. It’s in the way we behave. It is in the way we interact with one another.…

Disagreeing in Love

By Aubrey Coleman 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

With so much information accessible at our fingertips, we have seemingly become experts on a vast array of topics or at least we like to think so. We can so easily cling to opinions as if they are gospel and need our utmost allegiance and defense.…

Checking Our Gardens

By Brandy Marsh 
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 4 

Spring is upon us and what better time than that of sunshine and new growth to take a step back and check our gardens. Not our real gardens. Personally, if you were to come to my house to check my garden, there would not be one. If there were one, there is a pretty good chance that nothing would be alive.  God did not give me a green thumb, and I’m okay with that.  I can take care of people — husband, kids, family, friends, co-workers — but for some reason watering a plant just does not come naturally for me.  So lucky for me, we are not checking our real gardens. Instead, we should be taking a look at the seed that was planted when we accepted Christ into our hearts. 

So picture this: you gave your life to Christ, God sent you the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit brought a seed to plant inside of you called the Fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 tells usBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness, and self-control.” 

God gave us a list of nine fruits that would be produced in our lives, with help from the Holy Spirit, to reflect a life with Him. As you read the individual “fruits,” picture each one as a seed, or a sprout, or a blooming flower in your own garden. 

Love: Are you giving love to people whether they deserve it or not?

How Many Hairs Are on My Head?

By Kristyn Perez 
The Daily Grace Co. Community Leader

The other day I asked my kids if they knew how many hairs they had on their heads. They answered with typical 4-year old answers, “A lot! Is it 50 mama? Or maybe even 100?!”  

One of my daughters looked at me timidly to gauge if she had answered right.…

Desire is the Language of the Heart

By Aubrey Coleman 
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Our desires give a window into our hearts. Desire is a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen. When we think about the things in this life that we want the most, we get a picture of what our hearts are drawing and pulling us toward.…

A Word Fitly Spoken

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Can you recall a time in your life when someone shared some really hard truths with you? A time when you were called out on your sin, confronted with ways you’d wronged someone, or simply listened to someone tell you something you really didn’t want to hear?…
