About Mary

Welcome to my blog!

I'm Mary Graziano Scro, and Life Is Not A Formula is my ministry name. Being gifted with the blessing/curse of an overactive, analytical mind, the Lord gave me the name to remind me life is not about formulas, rules, or figuring things out. 

Life is about daily obedience to Jesus. 

John 8:32 is an awesome promise: the Truth will set us free. But you can't forget John 8:31 - when you obey Jesus, you become His disciples. Then you know the Truth that sets you free.

I've learned John 8:31-32 first-hand, through successes and failures...probably way more through failures! Today I walk in more freedom than I believed possible...and I'm still being changed every day, from glory to glory. 

I blog to share God stories from my 20+ years of walking with Jesus, to inspire and challenge you toward a deeper walk with Him.

Most importantly, the more we invest in our own unique relationship and obedience walk with Jesus, the more visible He is to a world that desperately needs Him. Then, and only then, can the Kingdom of God can be advanced so that many will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

That is what the Christian life is about: advancing the Kingdom of God.

I hope you find time to browse through my blog posts, and subscribe if you are encouraged by what you read. I post as the Lord leads; working on posting more regularly. 

I welcome all comments - we're journeying together, and I love hearing what the Lord is doing in your life!
