Hi, we are David & Maria Kelly, and we live in Marion, Indiana with our sons Timothy and Michael.
Timothy is our oldest son and is 14 years old. He is a very intelligent guy, and was already speaking in thirteen word sentences by the time he turned two. He hasn’t stopped talking or growing since. He’s already 5′ 11″!
Michael is twelve years old and is full of imagination, creativity, and humor!
Currently, David works for Indiana Wesleyan University as a Program Representative in Adult Enrollment Services. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies. Maria is a Web Systems Analyst at Indiana Wesleyan University. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Information Systems.
We are disciples of Jesus Christ and members of College Wesleyan Church in Marion, IN.
God has done some amazing things in our lives and shown us mercy and grace beyond anything we could have ever imagined. We have witnessed several miracles, which have truly been life changing.
Lamentations 3:21 (NLT) says, “Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this,” and goes on to say, “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23, NIV).
We are well acquainted with suffering, as you will see from our story. However, even in the midst of suffering we can have hope. In our relationships with God He is certainly the faithful one. We are amazed by all that He has done for us and the ways in which He continues to teach us who He is. Our goal in life is to truly love God and love others. So, with that in mind we are writing this story, and felt that Lamentations 3:21 was a fitting title.
We pray that you, too, will grow in knowing God on a personal level and experience His great love, so that when you go through difficult times you’ll remember this and still dare to hope.
David & Maria
