Mary Phillips

My heart truly is to love God and love people. The Lord got a hold of my heart as a young girl, though I really remember giving Him my heart at a youth event as a teenager. I have loved Him from that moment on! I am a Florida native and absolutely love it, I also love to travel and explore new places. My favorite thing to do is see all of God’s amazing creations whether it be through landscape or animals. My favorite place is the beach and watching the stunning colors of a sunrise or sunset and listening to the waves crashing on the shore. 

I met my husband Ray when I was just turning 16, and we married when I was 19. After 2 years of marriage, we had our beautiful daughter Mariah, and a little less than 2 years later, we welcomed Brandon into our family. My mission as a mom was to teach my children about Jesus. As they grew, the decision became their own to follow the Lord. They both attended Word of Life Bible Institute for Bible College. While Brandon was in New York for school, he met his now wife and the Lord has blessed our family with a beautiful granddaughter. 

For as long as I can remember, I have followed the Lord’s direction for my life. He is my everything. Some of my favorite Verses are found in Psalm 8, such beautiful verses on praise and worship to the Lord and how He loves us! But my absolute favorite verses are Psalm 51:10-12. How I desire for a clean heart, and a renewed right Spirit! May I be restored with the joy of salvation, and always be found with a willing Spirit. May He always give me all that I need to love His people and to serve wholeheartedly.
