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 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 am a Jesus follower, a committed peacemaker, and an unfinished human. My body is over 60, but I was reborn in August of 2006. I’m a lifelong learner who, for the last year-and-a-half has been taking classes in Bible studies and interpretation. For the last three years I’ve been writing devotional Bible studies for Christian families that take the uncertainty and apprehension out of reading the Bible and helps them use it in their daily lives. 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.
Born in Mamfe- Manyu division- South West Region- Cameroon.
Completed nursery, primary and secondary education in Yaounde. Moved to the University of Buea for a Bsc. in JOURNALISM and MASS COMMUNICATION.
Loves reading and writing, positive talking,and being a blessing to someone, somehow, somewhere.
Believes that everyone can positively impact the world, even from a small corner of the globe.
Watch words: WITH GOD, EXCELLENCE IS MY AVERAGE.

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!
