because words matter & life is full of thorns

tending our way by God’s Word makes all the difference.

I’m Mariel and I invite you to join me in my garden on the coast, as we practice grace and tend our way together.

Jesus captured my once atheist heart with His Word in my early twenties. He ministers to my heart as I meditate on Truth while tending my backyard garden on the coast of North Carolina. Here He reminds me how He is tending me- pruning, nourishing, watering and even by His grace, harvesting good fruit.

I would love to help you grow in the grace and knowledge of God through grace practices He is teaching me.

I get it, life is tough.

Through the joys and trials in my roller coaster marriage, homeschooling my nearly grown boys and the staggering grief of loss, the Lord has taught me how to press into His Word in simple, life-changing ways.

Even this enneagram 6, given to fear, insecure and worst case scenario girl is learning, through His Word, how to anchor my heart in Him. And so can you!

Join me on my blog for garden musing as I use my words to ponder the Word so we might better tend our way by His Word.

Success! You’re on the list.
