Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Thanks, Sparrow. I'm glad I didn't post it, too – think the Spirit did a little whispering, because I had the whole thing formatted and ready.I bet it will find a good home!

Hope you can find a good home for it!

  3. Love that, Niki! I feel the same way, Diana, but it can happen when least expected. This morning, I got a call from a friend I hadn't seen for a while who needed a ride. She ended up blessing me more than I blessed her, but I was pleased to help.

  4. What a wonderful post! This week our church took our regular Sunday morning worship time to go out into the community and do service projects. I was part of the team that did fall clean-up on the yard of a young mother who just learned the bone cancer she fought off a few years ago has returned. We cleaned, and we prayed. Vessels of labor?

  7. SO thankful that He is the potter and I am the clay. That He molds and shapes His vessels according to His divine will. Fantastic post! Love my cereal bowl, too!

  8. I was used as a vessel by listening to a customer about some severe health issues and insurance/financial problems. I tried to help by suggesting several directions. She just really needed someone to listen, so I let her pour it all into me.
