Confession: I have writing regrets

Rustic Wood Wedding Instagram Post

As I was teaching my Writer Mastermind groups this week, I confessed something there that I realized I should confess here at MaryDeMuth.com. I have career regrets. If I were to visit my younger writer self, I would’ve given myself a good talking to. Here are five things I would say: Just because someone tells […]

Confession: I treat my yard like my childhood self

Rustic Wood Wedding Instagram Post (2)

I do not do well with indoor house plants. You can ask my daughter Sophie about this because she gave me very precise instructions about how not to kill my fiddle leaf fig, and it has already sported brown spots of death. Last week I was working in my yard, and I realized that I […]

Confession: I collect Pre Experiences

Rustic Wood Wedding Instagram Post (1)

I am guilty of preparing to live rather than actually living in the moment. This is something God is unveiling before me this year, and it’s difficult to face. I’ll give you an example. This year we were able to finally realize a backyard dream of erecting a pergola over our really long table in […]

Confession: I struggle with weight

Rustic Wood Wedding Instagram Post

This is a first in a series of confessions from me. I pray my own wrestling brings hope and health to you. So late last month, I penned a prayer to the Lord about my frustration with my weight. You can read it here: Although I eat well and exercise fairly consistently the scale does […]

1000 Episodes of Pray Every Day!

Untitled

A little over three years ago, my 365 devotional, Jesus Every Day, released. In January of 2018, I attended my yearly Mastermind retreat, asking what would be a unique way to get the word out for the devotional where I basically prayed people through the Bible in one year. My friend Thomas Umstattd suggested a […]

I met Shelly Carvan when my heart was in shreds, soon after our family came home battered from the mission field in France. We attended the same Life Group at church, and I distinctly remember talking to her in the hallway outside of class, knowing immediately that I wanted to befriend her. She, I sensed, […]

Thank God for NOT giving me what I thought I needed

Orange-Black-and-Beige-Recognition-Restoration-Celebration-Instagram-Post

I’ve shared this story before, but it begs repeating. In high school, I pined for a boyfriend. I prayed for a boyfriend. I made bargains with God about said boyfriend. But heaven was silent. Single Mary stayed single. No boyfriend. And now? I’m grateful. Because my besetting sin also echoes my deepest need from childhood: […]

I despise neediness in myself

Black and White Black Lives Matter Instagram Post

This is one of those posts I am starting that I don’t know how it will end. During this time of Covid, racial tension, and employment worries, I (like you) have had some space to observe my life. And something has bothered me. I get mad when I see someone offer grace to a struggling […]

Celebrating = healing

Blue Glass Mood Board

I am terrible at celebrating. Ask my husband. I flit from thing to thing​, seldom stopping to cherish a moment or celebrate a milestone.  Can you relate? I’m reading a really helpful book right now called Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg. It’s been the habit book that has truly produced life change in me. I now have a […]

A Deep, Yet Accessible Bible Study

Violet Floral Mother's Day Instagram Post (1)

I remember picking up my first Bible study book when I was probably sixteen years old. I turned it over, looked at it like an anomaly. Why? Because I was an unchurched girl, recently converted, and I had zero idea about the Christian culture, Bible studies, or even what Habakkuk was. I devoured the study. […]
