It is my profound life-changing blessing that God loved me so much to bring Marmar Dagu-ob into my life. I am learning so much from him and all the co-authors what it means to be love poured out and running over.
You teach me all far more than I could ever teach you. As you all share your journey with me, I learn and grow. God uses you to teach me a different way of thinking about an issue or our journey of faith.
I believe with all of my heart that we can create a better world as we work at changing ourselves. Gandhi through his noble walk of humble grace calls all of us to be the change we would hope to see in this world. True change happens as we are real with ourselves and one another.
I am here as your servant. I take on that cloak with a joy that no words I could write or speak would ever fully articulate.
I have a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School, where I was a journalism intern under the tutelage of Reverend Will Rooen. Will is doing his Lord’s work in Heaven.I am a student at St. James the Elder Theological Seminary in an M.A.- Ph.D. program in Clinical Christian Counselling. I am also a Master of Theology in Missions student at South African Theological Seminary.
I give thanks to my Lord for being given the following honors by Dr. Heyward Ewart, who is the President of St. James the Elder Theological Seminary: Doctor of Science in Clinical Christian Counselling (honoris causa), Doctor of Divinity (honoris causa) and Diplomate in Creative Ministry, which includes music, creative writing and ministry.
I will be in a private Christian counselling practice by early spring, which will also use my trained tenor voice in music therapy. I will specialize in abuse, marriage and addiction issues.
I live in the beautiful town of Englehart with my gorgeous wife, Karen.
We have two kitties, William a.k.a. Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot a.k.a. Sir William at Large and the notorious Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart.
We attend St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, where I contribute a weekly thought to our church bulletin, sing in the choir and am engaged in any ministry work our pastor calls upon me to do.
My dear friends, let us journey together as I share what God puts upon my heart.
Together, let us dream no small dreams, as we all soar like the eagle to our God-given potential.
” I have become absolutely convinced that neither death nor life, neither messenger of Heaven nor monarch of earth, neither what happens today nor what may happen tomorrow, neither a power from on high nor a power from below, nor anything else in God’s whole world has any power to separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 8:38-39, J. B. Phillips New Testament.
Hello, my name is Sheela. I am a new blogger. I have known Marmar since
August of 2013 and I’ve been very blessed to be given the chance as one of

in hopes of uplifting spirits for the Lord. Please stop by my blog, Heart’s
Table at http://sheelaleigh.wordpress.com/ to read more on my positive
thoughts. Thank you and God bless! 🙂

Hello! My name is Catherine Joy. When I began my blog, Merely Inspired, in January 2013, never in my wildest dreams did I think a fellow blogger would invite me to co-author on their blog. Yet, here I am, on Mind’s Seat, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be invited by Marmar.
Like my goal on Merely Inspired, I hope to inspire people. As someone pursuing the dream of becoming a published author and landing a career in film, I desire for all of you to also achieve your dreams, whatever they may be.
I’ll be posting once a week, but I leave the contents of every post up to the flight of my imagination, and it is a most active imagination that God has blessed me with. We need not be afraid to embrace what has fallen (either gracefully or rather precariously) into our laps.
All are welcome at Merely Inspired-http://merelyinspired.wordpress.com/-where I post poems, short stories, and other inspirational delicacies. Be inspired today!
With a cup of her legal stimulant in hand, she sits at her dinning room table enjoying the sights of her husband’s fruitful garden and the sounds of her children playing…Wait, no that’s not them playing….Jack, put your sister down! She’s not a baby doll!
Yes, this is my wonderfully beautiful life! I’m a wife, mother, teacher, musician and author. We wear many hats, don’t we ladies? I’m in love with a man who shows me every day the love of Christ. I am a mother of two jubilant children, Jack and Shelby. I have taught high school English in Virginia for going on eight years. Bobby and I are in a band, The Fifth Sparrow, who delights in the Lord and encourages others through song. And now I’m pursuing a long-buried dream of showing the love of Christ through the written word.
Besides teaching, I am working on becoming a published author. I enjoy reading romance novels, but in this day most seem to rely heavily on sex and not enough on heart and faith. Thus where I feel my calling come into play. My novels will be Christ-centered as I believe our lives should be. And since I love getting lost in a good romance, that will be a predominate genre I write. I mean who doesn’t like being swept away in a good story instead of in a mountain range of laundry?
I pray you are encouraged through this blog and inspired to seek The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit on a daily, if not moment by moment, basis. As always, I am interested in hearing from my readers. Please feel free to share your triumphs and struggles with me so that we may rejoice and pray together!

I was an elementary teacher for over 20 years and a writer for longer than I can remember. I’m now dedicated to using my Spirit-given gifts, grace and wisdom to build God’s kingdom.

Hello, everyone on Mind’s Seat! I’m Mayra, an optimistic teenager who loves inspiring people. You are all probably wondering, “Is this blogger in elementary school or what?” I know, I have a baby face. But maybe someday it will pay off, right?
I never imagined that my blog would come this far. Let alone, become a co-author! I couldn’t feel more blessed for being given this amazing opportunity and I’m excited to see how much it will impact me as an aspiring journalist.
This started out as a class assignment and has now evolved into my favorite hobby. Blogging brings me happiness and I wish to share this with all of you.
Please, feel more than welcome to visit my blog and get a chance to know who “Mayra Chipmunk Cheeks” is all about- hence my chubby cheeks! I am open to building new relationships with all of you bloggers that motivate me to keep me going!
I would be honoured to share my poetry with you if you so desire. God Bless, Mike.

Thank you. God bless you.
Just an FYI – I mentioned your blog at http://barbararath.com/2014/02/23/my-disorganized-life/. Please let me know if you want the link removed.
it’s perfectly fine. Thanks.
hey 🙂 I love reading the quotes and poetry section and so I want to nominate you for the Liebster Blog Award.
Marmar, Thanks for the follow. You blog and your writers are so inspiring. As Christians, we need to be lights in this world. Good work.
Thank you. God bless.
You’re welcome .
tell me about your advocacy.
What do you mean by advocacy?
the thing you are passionate about.
What I know I’m passionate about is my love for God and my hope that all his people could be at peace and respect each other and differences. I’ve worked a long time in mental health nursing and I’m also passionate that persons living with mental illness have equal access for health care that persons with physical problems do.
that’s perfect because I believe Kevin has not totally forgiven his father.
Blessings to you in your recovery! Stirring article. Now off to dinner. Thanks for writing!
it wsnt mine. it was kevin’s.
One of my authors Kevin is sick. He’s from Canada and he is old. He suffered physical abuse from his father in his childhood. I dont know why I’m telling you this but I have a feeling it will help him if you chat a little with him.
here’s one of his articles https://marmarthunder.wordpress.com/2014/03/19/love-is-the-greatest-gift/
Wow, what an amazing group of writers using their gifts to bring light into the world. Thank you so much!
you’re welcome and thank you!
Pulling your efforts together is a very interesting and thoughtful idea, more so that you are from various fields of life. I wish you success in your blogging and thank you for visiting the Tower of Grace Global Ministries web site. Feel free to explore more spiritual resources in the site and continue to be a blessing.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog at imlisteningtoGOD.wordpress.com. I’m glad you like the book review.
I like how you have lots of people writing on the same blog. How is that for you? Do you enjoy it better than being the only writer?
I’m not a good writer and my english is really bad. i got many followers and i thought they deserve to have some good stuff to read that’s why i invited other bloggers to write for mind’s seat. we are a team and we share a common goal.
thank you. are you still in the seminary?
I am. I will graduate in about two years. I’m at Gordon-Conwell seminary in Massachusetts, USA. It’s great. I’m asking GOD to show me what direction to go after graduation. Pray for me if you would, in this regard.
I found it’s website and im reading their statement of faith.
Thanks so much for your follow of Heart of Life Poetry, I appreciate it. I wish all of you involved in this site much joy and fulfillment in writing and in life.

I love the concept of your blog and how you utilize the gifts of others as this is what the Word tells us makes up the Body of Christ. We are a healthy Body when all the “parts” are working as they should! I so look forward to making time and reading more as the Holy Spirit KNOWS where to lead for inspiration,

Thanks for following The Game of Sport Marmar. It was like 100 years ago but thanks all the same.
Great blog and thank you for the follow! 🙂
It is a pleasure to meet you all.
It’s a pleasure to meet you too! I think that’s such a great thing you are doing having a blog in memory of your father. My grandfather served in the infantry division of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces, which was the forerunner of the Canadian Armed Forces. He was only 17 when he enlisted. He lied about his age to be accepted into the Army. He died when I was only five most likely as the result of exposure to mustard gas. I will never forget his sacrifice and those of many millions of people, many of whom are left with permanent physical and/or developmental challenges. We must not forget what they were willing to give, that we could live as a free people in many countries throughout the world.
Thank you for following Freedomborn it is appreciated,
we of course have one Spiritual Teacher, Jesus Christ who through the empowering of The Holy Spirit leads us into all Truth although we do give Thanks to those who share God’s Truth as confirmed in Scripture, to encourage and uplift and to rebuke us if needed.
I wish you many Blessings in your Ministry but did find it strange that Gandhi was mentioned as being worthy of Trust, he did not honor God in his Marriage or in his own walk with The Lord, we need to be very careful who we promote and what they promote.
Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.
Thank you, Marmar, for the follow of my blog. Every blessing to you and your team 🙂
enjoyed reading your post thank you
