Simple Things You Can Do Today to Cling to God with Mariel Davenport | Episode 7

Founder of the TEND method to studying God’s Word and mom of two boys, Mariel Davenport shares what happened in her and her unstable marriage when she decided to stop being consumed with unfounded doubt and suspicion of what her husband might be doing. She stopped trying to control and cling to him and instead chose to cling to God. By taking very practical steps in faith, a powerful transformation happened in her, her husband and a relationship that was falling apart. In this episode she’s going to tell us: 

  • What we can do to stop trying to control and find our purpose from people or things that can shift 
  • What it means to cling to God and how that will fundamentally change you and those around you
  • The practical steps we can take to move from shaky ground to the solid rock that is God

No matter the season or situation you’re in, the practical steps Mariel shares are SO easy and you'll be able to start applying them today.

Founder of the TEND bible study method

I’m Mariel & I invite you to greater intimacy with God through His Word using my TEND method of Bible study.

Jesus captured my once atheist heart with His Word in my early twenties. I plunged into every workbook Bible study, devotional, and book I could find to know God better. I learned much, yet lacked intimacy with God, for myself.

The TEND method changed that! TEND is a simple, slowed-down approach to listening to God through His Word.

I am easily given to fear, insecurity and worst-case scenarios. But He is teaching me to tend my soul like a garden and find the peace and stability I need, in Him. And so can you.
