Welcome to 3 Questions Wednesday, Mary. Here’s our first question—

Can you describe yourself in three words?

Mary:  Authentic, communicator, empathetic

I love those, and I’ve read enough of your writing to agree with all three. Next question,

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

Mary:  Geneva, Switzerland. I’ve actually had a conversation with a friend of mine who is interested in me possibly being a writer in residence there. I love Switzerland, plus I speak (bad) French. The food is amazing. The people are awesome. The scenery is magnifigue!

What a great place for a writer. The history, the scenery…the food! Question #3:

If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?

Mary: In the Sun, by Joseph Arthur – The song has special meaning to me as we used it as the background music for a presentation we made when we were church planters in France. The year prior had been a literal hell, but we were still standing.

Here are the lyrics:

I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in

May God’s love be with you
May God’s love be with you

I know I would apologize if I could see your eyes
‘Cause when you showed me myself I became someone else
But I was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You can’t keep awake

May God’s love be with you
May God’s love be with you

‘Cause if I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find
If I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find

A beautiful song, and a wonderful memory. Sometimes you just have to walk through things. Thank you, Mary DeMuth, for taking time to answer our three questions.

And now, a treat for our Readers—

About the book:

There’s something wrong with your friendship, but you can’t figure out why. Is everything in your head? Unfortunately, toxic friendships happen to everyone, but we seldom identify the underlying issues while we battle confusion or the friendship breaks up.

Maybe you’re left bewildered in the friendship’s wake, paralyzed to move forward.

After wading through several difficult friendships, Mary DeMuth reveals the seven different types of toxic relationships and empowers you to identify the messiest relationships causing you the greatest anguish.

Face the reality of your broken relationship, and unearth exactly what went wrong. Discover why you may attract toxic people. Heal from broken relational patterns so you can choose safer friends. Evaluate when it’s time to press into a friendship or let it go.

You’ll gain a new relationship with Jesus as you trust him to be your confidant, healer, and life-giving friend.
