To give God the glory


"She writes about real-life situations and how the Lord speaks to her," Mark explained. "It could be out in the garden, events with people."

She has even started a new ministry using tins cans to make crowns. The custom-order pieces demonstrate how people are an empty tin can and viewed as disposable, something to be just thrown away. The Lord looks at us in a different way. He takes that empty seemingly meaningless tin can and transforms it, he transforms us, into a beautiful crown.

These crowns are just one more way the Tanners are able to show people the one who deserves the glory.

"Whatever we do, we always want to point back to Him ... because there is a hope," he said.
