Melissa Mashburn is a “Jill of all trades” and has spent the better part of her adult life in some form of ministry or marketing role, or both at the same time. When Melissa joined our team a few years ago, we began chatting about an idea she had for a book on godly friendships. But, when Melissa actually began writing this manuscript, God changed the direction of her words and message, and the end result was a beautiful, deeply heartfelt guidebook for women leaders in ministry.
This Too Shall Pass is first-time author Kaitlyn Scott’s personal story of her journey with chronic illness. In the book, she shares encouragement through the lessons God has taught her on this journey, along with real, raw struggles and tests of her faith. Working with such personal “works of heart” are as rewarding as they are delicate, and our team does our very best to handle both the manuscript and the author with care throughout the entire publishing process.
Publishing a client’s message or story is always exciting for our team. Add to that the pleasure of working with not one, but two authors who happen to be sweet sisters and who have worked on this story for over seven years, and it immediately feels like an overwhelming (and fun!) privilege to be a part of their journey. Market Refined Publishing worked with authors Maureen Hartson and Shannon Coe to publish their first Christian fantasy novel this summer, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Carmen Horne has been a client with MRM for several years. We helped get her started on WordPress from Blogger, refreshed her website design a couple of times, and assisted with her first two book releases. Most recently, we had the exciting opportunity to create a professional brand and website design for Carmen’s new role as an establish author and as a faith-based life coach.
Gina Duke is a long-time client of MRM. We had the pleasure of creating a fun and unique website design for her a few years ago, and we have maintained her website and offered tech support for several years now. With recent growth in Gina’s ministry and business, it was time to update her site design again and create a professional brand design. We love working with repeat clients and watching their online journeys progress!
Daniel and Lacy Tolar have a unique and inspiring story of how God used several bumps in the road to guide them to His plan for founding and growing Rescue 1 Global, a powerful nonprofit battling human trafficking and slavery worldwide. The Rescue 1 Global team reached out to MRM for a much-needed website redesign, in addition to an SEO deep dive, and more.
