Grit & Glory, Songs & Stories

May 16, 2023

Walking with God is a beautiful thing. Deb DeMaris joins Mark to talk about how they connect with God through music and some stories of faith that will “ignite joy”.

As you’ve guessed by now, I love God-stories. Cindy and I are hosting some Zoom gatherings to share some "face to face" time with you, to get to know you better and hear some of your God-stories. We’d love for you to join us! The invitation link will go out to everyone in our Friends Group (email) so be sure to join at Episode 49 if you haven’t already. 


Why is it important to tell God stories? There are so many reasons but Jesus explained it best when He was asked about using so many parables. He said, “I tell stories, to create readiness, to nudge people toward receptive insight.” (That’s taken from Matthew 13 Message version). I’ve experienced God’s amazing work in my life through Jesus Christ and I’m passionate about others experiencing this joy and peace as well! ~Mark

Are you looking for a unique gift for someone who’s special AND hard to buy for? Over the years I have enjoyed writing a variety of custom songs such as theme songs and songs that celebrate or commemorate. I have written for businesses, non-profits, individuals, events and occasions. I'm excited to take these experiences and make this special type of gift more readily available.

I’d like you to join the Friends Group! You’ll be one of the first to hear brand new songs, have access to a private page on our website with bonus content and share the journey with Cindy and I more closely than those who know us on social media only.  You’ll receive 2-4 emails a month, as well as freebies and discounts in the store. Ready to join us?


If so, join our Friends Group in a private Facebook Group where we can freely talk Jesus-music, God-stories, fun and faith journeys! Click here to request access.
