Meet MaryLu
I grew up on the beaches of South Florida loving the sea and the
warm tropics. But despite the beauty around me, I always felt an
ache in my soul--a longing for something more.

After college, I married and moved to California where I had two
children and settled into a job at a local computer company.
Although I had done everything the world expected, I was still
miserable. I hated my job and my marriage was falling apart.

I knew about God, had been to church most of my life, but I
believed if I followed Jesus, my life would be dull, frigid and
lifeless. I craved adventure and all this world had to give me.
What I didn't realize was that the path I chose away from God
took me away from the exact thing I dreamed of and sent me
spiraling down the road to destruction and agony. I was empty
inside, searching for something to fill the void in my life. I knew
in my heart that there must be something more to this world,
must be some reason I was here. My first marriage failed and
many lives were affected by the breakup of our family.

Still searching for purpose, adventure and true love, I spent my
late twenties and early thirties doing all the things the world told
me would make me happy, and after years, my children suffered,
my second marriage suffered, and I was still miserable.

One day, I picked up my old Bible, dusted it off, and began to
read. Somewhere in the middle, God opened my hardened heart
to see that He was real, that He still loved me, and that He had a
purpose for my life, if I'd only give my heart to Him completely.

I had written stories my whole life, but never had the confidence
to try and get any of them published. But as God began to
change my heart, He also showed me that writing had been His
wonderful plan for me all along. Even though I was still working
full time, He gave me the means to write a book, an agent, and a
publisher willing to print it. And anyone who has ever tried to get
published knows that any one of these things is a miracle in

I am now living the adventure I had always sought. My life is
filled with purpose and love and I give all the glory to God. Many
other miracles have happened in my family since I gave my life
to Jesus, and all I can say is I truly look forward to every day.

To God be the Glory!
