Mary Lawrence offers to readers a customized 2013 wall calendar, “Mastering the Teachings of Jesus: The Beatitudes and Beyond” (published by WestBow Press), in the hope that it will help them make 2013 a year they be inspired to take the small daily steps in their walk with Jesus, and watch their lives become an inspiration to others and glorify God.
An excerpt from “Mastering the Teachings of Jesus”:
“When we were children our parents taught us the value of habit building. We learned to brush our teeth and tie our shoes in such a way that they became “habits”. We can use the same habit building tools to become a successful Christian, return to our relationship with Christ, or renew and improve our current relationship with the Lord.”
“We live in such a fast paced society,” Lawrence writes. “We have instant oatmeal, fast food, text messaging, etc. We have become a society accustomed to everything in bite size pieces! This process of habit building takes small steps every day and after 30 days a person has developed a new vital habit in their walk with the Lord.”
About the Author
Having been raised as a preacher’s daughter in Oregon, Mary Lawrence knows the importance of the spiritual walk. However, as some do, Lawrence strayed from her walk in her adult years. The truth never left her mind; it just was not firmly planted in her heart.
Lawrence has also suffered two brain injuries in her life, one when she was young and the other more recently. Both required mental retraining to reestablish some lost habits. Lawrence used the process of habit-building to accomplish this. After her second brain injury Lawrence decided to use the same skills to deepen her relationship with the Lord.
Lawrence now lives in Minnesota with her family and works with disabled children in a local school, using the same skills she learned to help them succeed.
