And that I’m no fan of the boot-strap Gospel. Nothing in me wants encourage others (or myself) to try-harder or just do-better. Everything in me clings to the fact that Jesus paid it all on the cross.

Because of His sacrifice, we are already, always, completely forgiven.

There is nothing for us to do, because He did it all.

Dear Mom… (And The Grace and Truth Link Up)

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If your children are still little, you have probably been getting handwritten notes and crafts they created at school. Maybe some flowers or cards. On the bulletin board next to my desk I have a Mother’s Day…

Grace and Truth and The Joy of Missing Out

I have been totally, and completely, overwhelmed this week. I started a new organization system at the end of last month that helped me feel like I got a handle on things… so what did I do? I took on more work. Now I…

Grace and Truth So I’m Free To Be Me…

Have you ever felt afraid to be yourself? You probably didn’t think of it that way, but you just act a certain way around certain people. You know, because it’s more acceptable. You want to fit in……

Grace and Truth for When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

Have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt like you were completely alone? I have. Many, many times. I remember driving to the women’s Christmas party our church was hosting one year and giving myself a pep talk just so…

Grace and Truth and The Shades of Love

The shades of love… if you’re wondering, I’m not talking about the 80’s dance music or lingerie. I’m talking about the varying degrees and different definitions we have for love.…

Grace & Truth & The God Who Sees Me

Do you ever feel left out or forgotten? Like if you disappeared the whole world would just go on without you? Okay, maybe your family needs you, but your church family wouldn’t notice, or your work place wouldn’t care? Maybe your school or your…

Grace and Truth for Your Prayer Life

How’s your prayer life been lately? God has really been convicting me about mine lately, so when I clicked over to read Diane’s post last Friday, I felt like it had been written just for me.…

Grace and Truth For When You’re Seeking Jesus

I shared a little bit of the chaos that is my life last week. It would be fair to say that I’m still in the midst of it all. Which is probably why Marva’s post from last week spoke right to my heart.…

When It Rains It Pours – Grace and Truth Link Up

Our internet was hacked. We pay for 21 meg, we were getting like 0.2. Someone else was eating up the rest of it. After figuring out what was wrong, I changed the password and the problem was solved… Then my husband’s computer that has…

Grace and Truth for Your Quiet Time

When my twins were little finding some one-on-one time with Jesus was… well, difficult to say the least. Quiet time? That was almost laughable. I had four children ages five and under, so I learned to work with what I had. But I definitely…

Grace and Truth and Quiet Courage

I’m super excited to feature on of our own Candid Gals this week for Grace and Truth. Laura Rath wrote a post about quiet courage, because courage doesn’t always scream “I can do this” from the roof tops. Sometimes it just silently puts one…

Grace and Truth and My Identity In Christ

Rebecca Hastings is one of my all-time favorite bloggers. She has a way of looking at common struggles and shining a new light on them that makes them come alive in a whole new way. And that’s exactly what she has done in today’s…

Uncomfortable Grace and Truth

I didn’t choose a word for this year, but that doesn’t mean I’m anti-one word people, or boycotting the one word movement. In fact, the featured post I chose for today is all about one woman and her one word. So just what is…

Grace & Truth After Abortion As A Christian Woman

We all have a past. I’ll be honest, I’m not proud of everything I did growing up. And I’ll go out on a limb and say you probably aren’t either. I was the “good kid.” Breaking rules and disobeying didn’t even occure to me.…
