My name is Jeannette Elizabeth Geist-Marcelli. I started this blog back in March of 2017 by the request of the Holy Spirit. I was led to write down all my life experiences in my journal a couple months before that, since beginning a renewed walk of Faith in December of 2016. I finally allowed God to take me off those “crooked roads” I was on for 30 years of my life, and have Him put me on the Path He so desired for my life to begin with.
He wanted me to then not only start a blog, but soon after that, take what I was writing down in my journal, and sharing a bit on my blog, and write it in a book. It was not to be just one book, but a series of three about my life, and my journey as a real-life child and servant of God, in the 21st century, who is allowing Him to lead and guide me every step of the way. He was to be in control of every area of my life-where I lived, my finances, any jobs, my education, relationships–you name it. It was all given up to Him to decide. I was to live like the prophets of old, and the stories of the faithful that I read about in the Bible. I was also to deal with certain things like Spiritual Warfare and all that comes with it–something I never would dare to choose to do. Prayer, studying His Word, and being in constant communion with Him is of the utmost importance in keeping my relationship solid with the Lord.
I sincerely wanted people to realize how real the Lord God is, yes, even after all these millennia, and how He does work out all things for our good in our lives, each and every day, if only we would allow Him to.
That is what I have been doing since then, and it has been a whirlwind of a journey! I have finally self-published my first book and its accompanying devotional, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH”. It was not an easy thing to do; I wish He granted me an editor and publisher instead, but this is how I was to start out. I am currently working on the second book of the series, and also a book on the Holy Spirit, and the importance of the role He needs to be allowed to play in the Body of Christ, even more so in the days we are now living.
I have recently graduated with a B.A. in Latin and the Romance Languages, also with Minors in Holocaust and Genocide Studies and Jewish Studies. I am now doing graduate studies for my Master’s in Biblical Languages (Greek, Hebrew), with a Linguistics cognate.
