A Message from Mary Fairchild

As a writer, my greatest passion is to study and expound on the Word of God. I’ve made it my goal to offer practical, applicable resources for living the Christian faith with authenticity in today's world. Inspired by the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:12, I’ve adopted this purpose: "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ."
