Welcome to Grace & Truth Living! We are so happy you stopped by. Our site was created with two things in mind; to encourage families and to lift up of the name of Jesus Christ. We pray that before you leave, you will experience both.
Who We Are
Paul Kraft loves the Lord. He has a gift for teaching complicated truth in simple terms. As an attorney, it comes quite natural for him to speak in logic and truth. He is the “Truth” of Grace and Truth Living.
Paul received his Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and went on to Law School. He received his Master's Degree from McGeorge School of Law. He enjoys teaching junior college and watching a good football game. His favorite thing? Spending time with his family.
Joanne Kraft loves the Lord, too. As a writer, her work has been published in Today's Christian Woman, Thriving Family, In Touch, and ParentLife Magazines. She's been interviewed by Focus on the Family, Family Life Today, and CBN.com.
Her first nonfiction book Just Too Busy - Taking Your Family on a Radical Sabbatical encourages busy moms to slow down. Stop by her website to download a FREE leader's guide or sign up for her newsletter.
Joanne considers her husband and their four children her greatest blessings and highest crowning achievement. In her down time, she hangs out at coffee shops and enjoys making her husband laugh... sometimes intentionally.
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God and that it is relevant and applicable to man today. Therefore, we place great emphasis on the teaching of the Word to our family.
1 Timothy 4:13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe God is worthy of all praise, reverence and love. It's our goal to worship Him with our whole lives, whether at home, at work, or in church.
Colossians 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
We believe every believer is called to be an active part of the body of Christ by abiding in Christ through His Word, prayer and fellowship, and by the yielding of our lives to the Holy Spirit for His equipping and empowering.
We believe Christian service is the responsibility of all believers. As parents, our goal is to demonstrate and encourage ministry within each of our four children, inspiring them to use their God-given gifts for His glory.
Ephesians 4:11-15, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
We believe love is the greatest demonstration of the reality of Jesus Christ. Love should be exhibited in our lives, by our words, as well as by our actions.
John 13:34-35, Philippians 2:3-5
