I am a Jesus follower.

In the New Testament, Jesus deemed his followers “the light of the world” and prompted them: “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).  Those of us who have accepted the gift of Christ have also accepted His call. Not to garnish praise for ourselves, but rather to point to the God who gifted them to us. This is why we live; and why I write.

In creating this blog–and communicating in any facet of life–it is my prayer that I would shine the love of Christ. Whether you know Him or not; whether you seek to or not; I hope you will find Him here.

  1. I just want you to know that we were put onto the blog back a few months, through a mutual friend of your sister and brother-in-laws. Our hearts are so broken. Sad tears and happy tears. I will include you in our prayers for strength as you walk this journey of such sorrow, alongside of your family. Mindy shared your blog on her post, so I have looked. May God be your strength!

  2. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you and your family Marissa. Your witt, kindness, thoughtfulness and depth of spirit shines though in your words. God Bless you!

  3. Your writing is beautiful and profound. Thank you for sharing your heart, and for sharing your transparencies as well. I believe that is one of the most honoring things we can share with our testimonies……our transparency, yet wound throughout, is the grace of God. I’m a homeschool Mum and as I study history with my daughters, we have been talking about sin, the fall of man. The beautiful thing is through history, though we see the scars of sin, and you are experiencing the tremendous wounds right now of a fallen world, throughout history, God weaves a thread of His grace. You’ve received that gift in His son, and as He uses others now in your life to sew His thread of grace through this pain, you will in turn continue to be able to weave His grace in other peoples lives as real life turns to history, through the dark pain His thread of grace will be seen. Ben is experiencing that perfection we as believers look forward to and He sounds like He was such a gift to your family. Humanly speaking his life seemed too short, but we know it wasn’t without purpose. Praying for your family, that when the darkness, and the pain feels like a blanket that can’t be shaken, that you will be able to open your eyes and see His thread of grace in the darkest of times. Praying for your precious family.
