Do We Have to Observe Advent?

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

This year, more than ever, I have noticed a tangible excitement for the Advent season. More shops are creating and selling Advent material. More families are asking how they can prepare their hearts for the true meaning of Christmas through the observation of Advent.…

Preaching the Gospel to Yourself

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I used to think the gospel was just for unbelievers. It was the good news for salvation and not much more. But as I grew in my understanding of Scripture, I realized that, while the gospel certainly does matter for one’s moment of salvation, it also extends to every single aspect of life moving forward. You see, the gospel is for unbelievers and believers alike because the gospel is for sinners. Though we are declared positionally holy because of Christ at the moment of our salvation, that moment also signifies the beginning of our journey of sanctification on this side of eternity.  

But what is sanctification, and why do we need the gospel for it?

What If It Is Not Well With My Soul?

Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 13 

My son has started lying. Apparently, this is normal toddler behavior, but I feel like I must already be failing as a parent. The upside is the hilarity of him not really understanding what it means yet.…

Resolve to Live Life Well

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

How often are the New Year’s resolutions we made at the beginning of the year at the forefront of our minds at the end of that same year? Do we even remember what we resolved to do? If you’re anything like me, your New Year’s resolutions were forgotten by March.…

Cultivate What You Crave

By Stefanie Boyles

Our family loves to eat salmon. Whenever we go to Sam’s Club, my 6-year old asks us to buy the big package of fresh salmon. I know it’s farm-raised and doesn’t compare to fresh salmon from Alaska – I can say that from personal experience because I had the blessing of living and working and eating in Anchorage right after college.…

I recently had a pivotal moment in my view of God, specifically regarding my faith. I’ve been married to my husband for about three years now. One particular area of our marriage that we have grown in dramatically is the stewardship of our finances.…

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.…

Amazing Grace

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for the Daily Grace Co.

I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up in the church in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, the gospel presentation seemed to have a “hook-and-bait” feel. The riches of God’s grace and love were presented, and I was beckoned to come feast at the banquet of God’s forgiveness of my sins.…

Precepts of Wonder

By Sarah Morrison  
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

In grade school, I was a part of a school program in which I had the opportunity to have extended study. Each week, I (along with about ten others) would get pulled from class, and we’d focus on a singular topic for a whole semester.…
