Jessica S. Marquis lives her life through imagination, powered by Jesus. She is the founder of Milkweed Ministries, including Verses 3 to 5 and CAST (Coming Alive, Scheming Together), as well as the author of the humorous how-to book Raising Unicorns (Adams Media). She holds an MA in Counseling with a specialization in Couple and Family Studies from Oakland University. By day, she hangs out at home and around Phoenix with her daughter and twin sons; by night, she tries to stay awake to hold coherent conversations with her husband. You can catch her musings on spirituality and her journey with Jesus at Cottonwood Blessings (and her unicorn news updates at Unicornomics).
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:4-5 (ESV)
