Tell us a little about yourself. I have been an active follower of Jesus Christ since 1994, when He became very real to me during my first layoff. My 15+ year editorial career covered oil & gas/energy and healthcare industries, in addition to writing on a freelance basis for the Houston Chronicle and other local magazines. God blessed me with an amazing husband after 16 years of enjoying life as a single. My daughter made me a "Nammy" over two years ago to the world's most adorable granddaughter.
What was your motivation behind this project? Experiencing two layoffs totaling nearly four years, all as a single mother, allowed me to see for myself that God is Who He says He is, and that He is faithful, trustworthy and will always take care of me. Always. Please read marykaarto.com for more information on how the this book came into existence.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? That if they haven't already done so, to put their faith & trust in Jesus Christ as the source of all they need in this life. There is absolutely, joyful and meaningful life to be lived in spite of a layoff. And, if they respond to their layoff God's way, He will bring something very, very good from it.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? If you want to know the truth, I was terrified when God initially answered my prayers on why I was allowed to undergo a layoff, AGAIN. I argued with Him that I'm not smart enough, spiritual enough, etc., but thankfully He never gave up on me. Once I calmed down and decided to cooperate with Him - in spite of my tremendous fear - the writing fell out onto the screen. I knew, I FELT Him writing it, through me. There's no way I could have come up with this on my own.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? God and His Word, Walk in the Word Ministry, Joyce Meyer Ministry, InTouch Ministry. Drs. Ed Young and James DeLoach(Second Baptist Church), Karen Kingsbury, Francine Rivers.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Please - I'm begging you - to believe in and trust God in spite of how you may be feeling, or how bleak your circumstances are. You cannot go wrong in entering into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I have been through hell, at least the closest thing I can imagine to being hell, and not only thrived during the experiences but learned to rest in such a peaceful state, while doing so. I am now able to comfort others the way God has comforted me, and I speak/write from personal experiences rather than some feel-good, hope-it's-true theology. You cannot tell me that God isn't real, not after all I've been through.
