Hi, there! I am a mom to Eli (4 years) and Cora (9 months). My husband, Geoffrey, is a pastor in Marshall, Texas. We are both from East Texas and have a love for this region and coffee, which turned into us starting Joe Pine Coffee with our dear friends. We spend a lot of time talking about church, community, coffee, and children. When I’m not scheduling baristas or drawing verses, I enjoy creating social media content, logos, and publications for clients.⠀

I am so excited about New Mercies for Moms — it’s a project I get to work on with two of my friends AND share with all my other friends. I’m looking forward to making new friends through this ministry too! The Lord is already using these verses and devotionals to encourage me as a mom and to help me grow closer to Him. I’d love to connect with you on Instagram @WhatsTheJillio.

Hey mamas! I’m the mom of two energetic, blond-haired boys (4 years and 20 months). My husband works in the roofing industry and we’ve lived in East Texas for 9 years. I’ve always had a passion for writing and started co-authoring children’s books in 2013 (you can find them, here). Additionally, I work part-time as a communications specialist for a nonprofit organization. When I have free time (or dream about having it!) I like to play tennis, watch home renovation shows, and work on projects around the house.⠀

I’m excited to be a part of New Mercies for Moms because I want to encourage other women in their motherhood journeys. This project allows me to process the challenges of motherhood through the lens of my Christian faith and draw closer to the Lord. I hope it does the same for you!

Hey there, friends! I’m Mary Kathryn and I am one of the founders of New Mercies for Moms! I live in Marshall, Texas with my husband of ten years, T.J., and our two kiddos: Julianne (5) and Lucas (3).⠀

While I love my children, motherhood has never felt easy to me. I’ve struggled through a lot of insecurity, fear, and selfishness, and God continues to use this season to refine me. I’ve learned to lean into the process, though, as the struggle has produced something more beautiful than I could have imagined.⠀

Writing is my love language. Over the last few years, God has graciously grown it into a career through freelance writing and blogging. You can find my work at, on Facebook or on Instagram @MaryKathrynTiller.
