Mark Darling – Story 75
Mark Darling has impacted my life so much! I have only met him twice but I feel like I’ve known him forever. When I started walking with Christ I was a single mom and I was scarred from past hurts. My goal was to become more like Christ. I had a friend who referred me to strongdisciples.com . I personally had never heard of it but she had told me how encouraging Mark was so I checked it out. I have been listening to his teachings since. I can’t explain to you how much he has helped me through my walk. Many times I was struggling and I would find myself listening to one of his teachings. There were days that I would feel discouraged to the point where I didn’t feel like I was connecting with God, I would go on to one of his teachings and it would just speak to me. I have been knocked down by the devil many times and I would just think about the encouraging things Mark Darling has said and it picked me up and led me back to God. He has helped me become a better mother, sister, friend, daughter, and coworker. The first time I met Mark Darling was in 2016 at Faithwalkers Midwest. I was excited to meet him. He taught on the importance of a father. The teaching was called “My church, my family, my life support”. I was sitting there in tears. I am still a single mom to this day, 0 support from the father. After listening to this message I was upset. I honestly didn’t even know what to do at this point. I knew I was living my life for God. I went over to your him, balling my eyes out I could barely talk. I told him my name and my story, I asked him what I needed to do for my kids. He said to continue to love God, continue to strive for his kingdom, I was doing the most I could do at that time and to live for God and he will fulfill his promises. When I was done talking to him he called a girl over who was around my age. She was a single mom also. Mark Darling had given me his number and she had given me her number. I won’t ever forget that day. It’s true, God made a man and women to be parents, my kids don’t have a father. What God has shown me is that no matter what the world will fail us and the only one who won’t fail us is the Lord. I will fail my kids, fathers fail their children, the only one who will not fail us is our father in Heaven. I would rather be a single Christian mom than a mom who is married and doesn’t know the Lord. My kids will grow up knowing the Lord, knowing that I have done my best to strive for Christ. Mark Darling’s teachings have helped me so so so much to become a better mother.
I went to Faithwalkers 2017, I had walked past Mark and he still remembered me. He knew my name, that meant a lot to me. He truly took the time to listen to me and truly pay attention to who I am. He is personal (like God) he truly cares for people and that means so so so much. Mark Darling is an amazing man of God and my opinion won’t change
