Mary enjoys studying the Scriptures, reading great writers, gardening, hiking and traveling with her husband, and visiting her children and their families on the East Coast. Mary and her husband live in Wisconsin, where Lindy is a hospital chaplain.
Mary Elizabeth Nelson was raised in the area of Wisconsin known as the Holyland. Her early understanding of life and God was shaped by the culture and her mentors in this German Catholic environment. Life events challenged her belief in God until, as a young adult, she gradually recognized Jesus as a real, historical person, and as the Son of God.
