"As I sit here in my loving tolerance of the cheesy goodness that is holiday romances, I am usually struck by how often they're singing O Holy Night or Joy to the World in the background or when they just so happen to run into the carolers hanging out by the mistletoe randomly. Hallmark may not realize it, but they're actually pointing out the source of those miracles and the Spirit of the season. In fact, the magic (if you want to call it that) is the awesome awareness the world has of the child born in the stable on a quiet night in a town called Bethlehem."Read More

This past Saturday, the women of In the Glow created care packages for the homeless. The care packages are designed to hand to people in need. Over 20 women attended the event, and 186 bags were made. We are blown away by the outpouring of love and support from our women. It is inspiring to see what God is doing in our church community.Read More
Small acts of kindness can speak volumes about God's boundless and unconditional love, especially when they come in moments of real need. It's incredible to me to know that God used a turkey sandwich and some bananas to speak into this young man's life.Read More
When you're in bondage in an area of your life, freedom can feel overwhelmingly impossible.
We're conditioned that success equals hard work, and so it seems counterintuitive that slaying our giants would simply require giving it to Him and resting. And while it's simple, it's not always easy.
Last week, Grace Church turned into a campsite with trees and tents and campfires. We welcomed 72 children and 36 helpers who camped with her for the week. Together we danced, wrote music, sang songs, made crafts, played games, and ate scrumptious snacks. We listened to stories about Moses, Daniel, David, and Jesus. Most importantly, we learned God loves them and that they are characters in His amazing grace story.Read More
How does grace reshape the way we think about rejection and pain? Understanding God's good nature and believing that we are in right-standing with Him will empower you to take a step towards what may feel like an impossibility.Read More

Everything makes much more sense in hindsight. Is easier to trust and rest when we can see an overview of God's bigger plan - as we map out our traveled route. But when life takes sudden turns and unexpected stops the hardest part is in the unknown. Are we lost? Are we where we're supposed to be? Melissa shares her journey, the pit stops, and hopeful future in this personal story about motherhood.Read More
We laughed, sipped hot chocolate, jammed to a playlist for all ages as we made fleece blankets for Project Linus and The Ronald McDonald House.Read More
I realized I had been so restless about it because it hadn't run through "Mio's Creative Process." I had little to no clue who the women of grace were. What's worse is that my perspective was off and I had a lot of misconceptions. However, God knows exactly who we are as individuals and as a community.Read More
I can lose my grip on big picture concepts from time to time. I admit I had experienced mood swings with how I felt about our manifesto (mission statement). I also felt awkward about how to explain the reason behind the roots of In the Glow. In my preparations for Storyteller Sunday a couple of weeks ago, I discovered some things that blessed me to pieces!Read More

. Why did I give up? I suppose most people have gone through this almost/halfway/maybe/not quite obtaining the pinnacle of a dream experience. Becoming resigned to the outcome, but disappointed and still having the desire to go further. A dream half realized. I know I have and I actually thought it was God’s will for me to give up the dream in the same way I thought it was His will for me to begin.Read More
