Meet Marissa

Hi! I’m Marissa, wife, mother and Christ-follower. I always thought I’d start a blog when I had accomplished something great in life. When I had reached the top of the proverbial “ladder of success” or had finally made a name for myself. Instead, I am writing this from the deepest valley that I have ever found myself in in my entire life. I may be down, but I am continually looking up.

Welcome to Beautifully Broken, a place where God transforms brokenness into beauty.
