Profile Information

Home Church:
Valley Christian Church
Musical Gift(s):
Worship Leader, Vocalist, Guitarist, Song Writer
About Me:
The season of my life is in perpetual "back to school" mode and I would describe myself as a lifelong learner. I am a home school geek and thoroughly enjoy teaching my four children. My husband and I have decided to remain married for at least 98 years or until death do us part...I think there is a warrenty involved?!!!? I love music with every extra ounce of my body, and if there are any ounces left at the end of the day, I enjoy unwinding with my guitar or a great book. And most of all, should the Lord tarry, and if I live to see my 98th wedding anniversary, I choose to love and serve and honor Jesus Christ here on earth while I have breath in this body.
Favorite Music:
Worship Music either privately before my God or with my worship team and the congregation, makes for a perfect day. Disciple, Eisley, Anberlin, Relient K, Skillet, Kutlass, Jeremy Camp, Third Day, Vicky Beeching, U2, The Almost, Ruth, Switchfoot, Supertones...
Classical and jazz and swing, these are a few of my favorite things.
Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
"How precious are your thoughts about me, O God! They are innumerable! I can't even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand!" (Psalm 139:17-18b)

"'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the LORD. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'" (Jeremiah 29:11)

"God showed how much he loved us by sending his only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him." (1 John 4:9)

"Until you have given up your self to Him you will not have a real self..." C. S. Lewis

Mary's Upper Room Prayer

Posted on April 11, 2009 at 8:05pm 0 Comments

I am sitting in the upper room, numb with pain, alone in shock

The day of hell that You endured, has left you buried behind a Rock.

Today is Saturday: the Sabbath Rest,

And yet I find no peace in this.

Oh Jesus you're dead, buried and gone,

And in this upper room I mourn.

I loved You as a mother could,

Every ounce of strength and guidance would

I give to you my first born Son,

If only I could be… Continue

Lessons from the North Wind

Posted on March 30, 2009 at 12:10am 0 Comments

"I don't quite understand you North Wind. You tell me what then." "Well I will tell you . If you see me with my face all black, don't be frightened. If you see me flapping wings like a bat's, as big as the whole sky, don't be frightened---you must believe that I am doing my work. Nay, Diamond, if I change into a serpent or a tiger, you must not let go your hold of me, for my hand will never change in yours if you keep a good hold. If you keep a hold,… Continue

Out of Gas

Posted on March 22, 2009 at 10:06pm 0 Comments

Two years ago I was leading worship for a woman's retreat. The church that asked me to come wasn't my home church and I only knew one gal who would be attending. Life was chaotic for me and a retreat alone with my Lord, serving Him and relying on Him to be my friend for the weekend was greatly needed.

The speaker that weekend shared about a friend of hers, a missionary in Paupa New Guinea, who saw many amazing miracles as they translated the New Testament. I was moved by the stories… Continue

Not what I want to do....but I do it anyway!

Ugliness. That is how my attitude has been recently; flat out ugly and spewing filth without much effort. It doesn't take much. To be honest, it is aimed in one direction and I feel it boiling up, but haven't tried to keep the lava inside the mountain. I just let it rip and then I feel bad.

What is the solution? Like an earthquake fault, I keep swallowing the frustration and then I just rumble. I know that so much of the rumblings is due to… Continue

Hi Mary,
It's quite amazing, isn't it, to be connected with the rest of the body of believers through sites such as WTR : )
The right of freedom of religion is one of the fundamental rights guaranteed in the Malaysian Constitution. However, there are certain restriction imposed. All races, but one, are given the freedom to practice the faith of our choosing. Most churches here are quite similar to what you would have in US. There is no persecution. On the other hand, people of one ethnic group are persecuted when they choose to leave the religion they were born into. These ones are not allowed by law to be part of any church.

Hi mary thanks for your question. if you jon the PA (Engineer's Corner) Group which I have set up there are lots of answers there that may help. It all helps to have set up the equipment first (Get him to join as well as yourself and I will give him/you lots of tips if you all want)we dont' have any problems at my church with feedback on Foldback (Monitors) because we setup right, sound check and make sure that no one (and I mean no one) points their mic towards the monitor speakers that will cause feedback big time. Look forward to hearing your comments or questions in there :) God bless
