How Can a Loving God Allow People to go to Hell?

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

I recently found myself telling my daughter (age 6), “There’s no such thing as a dumb question.” I wanted to encourage and engage her curiosity. Like most families, we strive to protect wonder and curiosity and open communication in our home. We enjoy hearing our kids’ questions, even when the occasional incessant string of “why’s” has the potential to drive a person mad. This is because questions are powerful.…

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

When looking to the week to come, do you grab your calendar and prioritize the events of the week, filling in the spaces with extra house work or errands? Or do you prepare for scheduling in prayer, asking God to shape your time in the way He desires it to be spent?…

A Quiet Life is Hidden in Christ

Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

A tranquil evening in the Coleman household was once interrupted by a seemingly intrusive commercial shouting,  “If you are going to live… LIVE LOUD!” The ad, encouraging viewers to purchase a new model of a car brand, sought to lure the audience in with flashing images of fast cars, bright lights, wealth, and fame.…

Sin and the Gift of Repentance

By Chelsi Woods
Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 10 

Sin is something that is addressed less and less in the church these days. It is almost like we are so worried about stepping on toes that we don’t call for any accountability. I think many of us are afraid to address our own sin because we know we are forgiven.…

Reading the Bible When Your Kids are Little

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

I was recently talking to a mom of little ones who was feeling guilty that she wasn’t spending more time in the Word. She gets up three to five times a night with her young kids and can’t seem to get out of bed in the mornings before they wake up.…

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.…

Sunlight dappled through the trees on ancient ruins in a tranquil Tunisian wood. The quiet weighed eerily, and the dirt path sloped gently downward. At the bottom, several caves were carved out of the rocky hillside.…

By Aubrey Coleman
Staff Writer for The Daily Grace Co. 

Last month, my husband and I sent off one of our cars to a mechanic. We intended to sell it if the problem we were dealing with could be resolved. As I prepared to have all things pertaining to the car in order, I soon realized the title to our car was nowhere to be found.…

Cultivate What You Crave

By Stefanie Boyles
Staff Writer for the Daily Grace Co.  

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.…
