Lifted Up

This story about Marvin Keener's life unveils the tenderness and mercy of God as He reveals himself to a deprived lad in a "holler" of Alabama and leads him into an intimate walk with Him.

Many of you already know me, but for those who don’t – my name is Mareta Keener.

I live on a hill in Dayton, Tennessee with my dearest friend and husband of 50 years. We have 5 children, 16 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. I have told stories to children over 47 years in Good News Clubs, Sunday Schools, Children’s Church, Week Clubs, VBS, and to my own dear grand kids.

Helping teens in crisis has been my passion ever since my own kids were teens. I have been counseling at the Women’s Care Center ever since it began in the 80’s.

I’ve always loved to write and enjoyed being an editor for Keener Marketing for many years. I am deeply in love with Jesus Christ and all that I write is true to His Word. I love to be called Grandma!
