Kris Mares

Just a woman trying to love Jesus and others a little bit more…

About March 2, 2009

Jesus follower, racing wife, mom of many, rural church pastor, friend, writer… Trying to live a life worthy of my callings.  I hurt and I love and I cry and I laugh.  I am a work in progress and I am loved just the way I am.

I spent my childhood and early adult years in central Illinois. Then I lived in Kentucky (and some of my heart is still there). Now, North Carolina is home. I raise kids and dogs and chickens and various other creatures that come and go (just not cats). I love people, the local church and the idea of being a homesteader. I blog about marriage, motherhood, ministry, money and me.

    Kris, I read your wonderful and prayerful reply to Walt Muellers post regarding the Gosselin’s. Thank you for reminding me and others to pray in response to everything. I have copied your prayer and will send it to the Gosselin’s as it says perfectly what I feel for them and hope for them all. I am also interested in your mention of Celebrate Recovery. A young Marine from my church whi I happened to meet in the lobby of our church while we were tending to my grandson and his daughter during services told me about this program. He is a returning veteran from Iraq and shared with me the anger he felt inside and his subsequent drug problem. He is clean now and working a program as well as relying on Jesus. Please pray for Brian. Thank you.

      Thank you. My blog is about my faith journey and my hope is that it uplifts, challenges and ministers to others. I am continuing to pray for the Gosselin family and will pray for Brian as well.
