Living the life

God Intended

Dawn Marasco, a Christian Book Author From Pittsburgh, PA

Are you hurting? Do you desire to be made whole? Are you hungry for the Truths of God? Do you want to live the life God intended for you?

God has called me to share what He has done in my life with those who are hurting and hungry for His truths.  Two decades ago, I was a Christian, but I was not whole. My past pains weighed me down. My sin and shame covered me. I knew that God could change me through His Word, but I did not know how. My fears directed my steps and my anxiety ruled my heart. 

I was a mess for my first 9 years as a Christian. Yet, that is when God called me.

He led me to surrender my wounded, sinful heart to Him and over the next few years, God faithfully healed my heart. He replaced my fear with His peace. He removed my doubt and empowered me to trust Him. In the face of my greatest sin, He displayed the warmth of knowing me, and loving me, right where I was. I felt His forgiving eyes upon me. My cloak of shame was removed by His unconditional love. The depth of my sorrow was comforted by His compassionate care. He overflowed my heart with His joy. 

IF God has done this for me, HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU!!! 

Our God can take our wounded heart and do above and beyond all that we could ever ask, think, imagine, or even pray. He is faithful. He will make us whole. What He has done for me, HE WILL DO FOR YOU! 

My heart is to bring Christ’s hope and freedom to those who are hurting and hungry for His Truths. I desire to share my life with you, so that as His children, we can live the life God intended.

I hope to journey with you.

4 Steps to Living the Life of Peace

God Intended

I know the stress, anxiety,  fear, doubt, frustration and exhaustion that accompanies a life lived without God’s peace. I had lived this way for the first nine years of my Christian life. In the book, Continuous Peace, I vulnerably share my life, along with the obstacles and barriers that had kept me from living the life of peace that God intended.

God has used these 4 Steps to transform my life.  They help to illuminate the obstacles and the lies that entangle us. In this book, I share numerous examples from my life, and I uncover the seven areas that I have found are the most destructive to our peace.

Do you want to know how to live by His peace in your everyday life?

In this book, you will learn how to remove what is hindering you, and how to be equipped with God's peace as a way of life, even during devastating circumstances.

Please join me as we discover what may be robbing you of the life of peace God intended. Your future self will thank you for it.
