Mary Coleman

Mary and tree

I am opinionated. I love to write. I often say that I was born to talk.

My favorite topics are family, education, race relations, and justice, but I venture frequently outside these bounds.

I don’t know everything, but I do know this: Jesus Christ and the scriptures have been my strength, guide, and comfort for over 35 years.

I consider myself studious because I search the Bible for answers and perspective. My intellectual approach sometimes gets in the way of my faith, but since God gave me a brain, I try to use my head and my heart as I live for Christ.

I hope  you’ll find wisdom and hope here as you also walk with God, build your family, and love your neighbors.

My Bio

I grew up in Toledo, Ohio, with my parents and three brothers. I became a Christian in 1981 while a student at Princeton University. In 1983 I married my husband Joe and we have been privileged to raise seven children: six girls and a boy who range in age from thirty-two to twenty. We have also suffered the loss of seven children through miscarriage and the death of a newborn.

We home schooled for thirteen years and cared for our aging parents who have now passed on. We live at a boarding school in rural Virginia where my husband is assistant headmaster. I am development director for a non-profit in Charlottesville.

Our family continues to grow now that our children are older and we have two grandchildren so far.
