Mary Walmsley

Sower of the Word

Mary Walmsley has known both triumph and tragedy. When devastated by divorce, the Lord granted her a miracle of healing through stitchery. Creative needlework became the means by which God led Mary through and beyond the pain into a renewal of her Christian faith. Fine embroidery was more than an outlet for pent-up emotions; it became the artistic medium through which she poured out her heart, mind, and soul. She spent eleven years stitching six embroidered works of art, each one an interpretation of God’s working in her life.

 
A dedicated student of the Bible, she spends two to three hours daily reading, translating, praying, and journaling. After years of purposeful stitchery and study, God led her to share the lessons she had learned through speaking and writing.

 
Mary has been presenting lectures since 1986. More than 9,000 people in seven states have been privileged to hear her speak and see her artwork. She has published several magazine articles, and is the author of “Because of a Covenant: Biblical Basics of the Law and Love of God Regarding Marriage”.
