Hi! My name is Mari Keisling. For those of you who know me best, you will understand the struggle I face in following the rules, drawing the line between right and wrong and knowing which battles to fight. For those of you who don’t yet know me, I pray you will see in me the desire to love God and love others in His name.
I am the youngest of seven children and come from a blended family. I’ve learned a lot about marriage, divorce, trying to unify people who don’t necessarily want to be unified, and choosing to be wiling to forgive and move forward.
I met my husband, Craig, at the age of 12. We became high school sweethearts and married soon after college. Our life together has been quite an adventure. We have two beautiful daughters, one energetic dog and a fabulous church family. I mention our church family because without them, we would not be who we are today. They have loved and encouraged us in our walk of faith, coming along side our entire family in times of joy and sorrow. They are a true blessing! If you don’t have a church family, I encourage you to get one. It’s not as hard as you may think. If you remember we are all struggling, all seeking and all loved by the same heavenly Father, you will soon find a place where you feel right at home.
This is my story. God has loved me with an everlasting love and He loves you, too! My hope is that through the telling of my story, my journey of faith, you will be encouraged on your journey as well. Don’t think you’re on a journey? The truth is God loves you, is for you, and is waiting for you to come to Him.
