About

website-profileLife with God is such an adventure. I never thought I’d be sharing my story and all I’ve learned online. In fact, I was born long before the average person even knew what a computer was. But God told me years ago, “Journal your daily walk with Me. Someday you will share from your journals all you’ve learned.”

Now here is a little about my story. My husband Mike and I have been married for 52 years. He loves to garden and work with Ham radios. I love to study and teach God’s word and write. We have learned to let each other be who God created us to be and value our differences. What I thought was love between opposites, in the beginning, doesn’t look anything like the strong oneness we share today. It’s been a great God adventure.

We have three grown children and six grandchildren, ranging from adult to Kindergarten. They are all followers of Jesus. We are blessed to share life with them and watch God’s plans for their lives unfold.

I’ve traveled to Guatemala, Baja, Israel and many places in the U.S. The most life-changing trips were to Israel in 2000, 2001, and 2002. The first was a ten-day tour, but the other two were six-week volunteer opportunities with Bridges for Peace in Jerusalem. Bible lessons I taught for years sprang to life when I walked the Land and lived among the people.

With all this in mind, I believe God’s led you here to feast on Him and His Word. You will find teaching gleaned with the rich Hebrew mindset placed in scenes of personal stories and journal notes of my conversations with Abba. You will learn how to be at peace in any storm and begin to see yourself as He sees you.

My prayer for you is that you will be encouraged by how accessible God is, how much He loves you, and see His Word with greater depth than ever before.

You may want to grab your Bible. Getting to know Him is an adventure that never ends and the Bible is His treasure map. Hope you will join me.

  1. Hi, Mary Ellen!
    I’m Mary Ellen too, ha, ha… and I used to be the “owner” of this web domain, MaryEllenWrites.com. If I’m not mistaken, you may be the one who held the domain and then let it expire until I was able to get a hold of it – and then I got it and let it expire, and now you have it back again! God sure does work in mysterious ways, and in every aspect of our lives too. I was unaware of it actually being in “use” since I let expire, until one of my reader’s told me that they loved my Christian writing! I didn’t know what they were talking about so I had to come and check it out for myself. It’s just beautiful and I just love what you’ve done here. Praise God!
    While I still write for Hilton Hotels & Resorts as a family travel writer for their Hilton Mom Voyage website, I no longer write for my day-to-day job (I used to be a freelance writer in Sarasota, Florida.) – instead I am the Director of Development for the only State-Certified Center for domestic and sexual violence in Sarasota and DeSoto Counties. God sure has his own plans for our lives, doesn’t He! I never saw my latest profession coming but I have been joyfully raising funds for this worthy organization – Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC) -for 3 years now. Just teaches me every day thatGod really does know what’s best and that His plans are for our good.
    Anyway, I’m sure I’ve probably shared far to much when I just wanted to reach out and say hello… and God bless.
    Please know that it makes my heart happy that this web address is used to recruit people to Jesus. What a blessing! Have the best day ever.

    • What a hoot. No, this is the first time I’ve had this address, but, I love this story. I love what you are doing as well. What a powerful and needed ministry. Our church here is just beginning to equip a team to go out and minister to prostitutes and those in sex trafficking. May God continue to bless and strengthen your ministry. May there be a release of funds and favor to meet every appointed need. Have a great weekend. ME 🙂
