Covering my angst with the soothing wisdom from my mother's prayer journals

About Me

imageWhat we love usually defines us.  I love Jesus and His word grounds me.  I love my husband of forty-five years, and his strength supports me.  I love my special son, Matt, and his determination humbles me.   I love my daughters, Stacy and Holly.  Their faith reinforces me.  I love my grandchildren whose lives give me joy.

I was raised in a family that loved music, laughter and good stories.  We had breakfast together every morning and at night we visited around the supper table.  We went to church every Sunday, for certain, and most Wednesday nights.

I loved those folks.  They gave me tradition.

I taught for nearly thirty years.  I loved my students.  They gave me purpose.

The purpose of this blog is to help replace the angst of a weary world with hope from faith stories and entries from Mother’s prayer journals, and it led to my first book, In My Mother’s Words.

My newest book is a devotional, Heart Whispers from the Old Testament, and is available on Kindle or through my Amazon Author’s Page below.

  1. Mary, I love your new space. The header photo is so full of light and hope! I’m glad you’re stepping out in confidence. Looking forward to coming back here more often. 🙂


  2. Mary–how nice to ‘meet’ you. Thanks for stopping by Three Way Light today, by the way. I see we have much in common–teaching –I was a classroom teacher for 20 years, last five I’m ‘just’ an assistant in Special Ed. Also, our love of music and our stage in life….your recent post really resonated with me. Great writing– I look forward to more.
    And the cover photo on your blog is beautiful, by the way.


  3. Thank you! I look forward to more visits.


  4. I loved your story and Don’s so much. especially about his mother. I need some tissue as I type. love to you and your family.
