So nice to meet you. I hope you will grab a cup of tea, find a cozy place and take some time to explore my writings, introduce yourself, ask questions and maybe even join me where there is alot of conversation over on my Facebook pages or my Instagram page!
I’m Mary Clewley, and I am the founder of Hope Filled Living Ministries. I am an author, speaker, blogger, wife and mother. Aside from those things, I am basically just a woman who loves God and wants to share the Hope that He has given me with a hurting world. I care deeply about bringing hope to the hopeless and helping women recognize their unique value in Christ and guiding them toward a Christ centered sense of self-worth.
Throughout my life I have attended Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian and various Evangelical and non denominational churches. They all had one thing in common: the love and worship of the Lord, Jesus Christ. My experiences in a wide variety of church environments have taught me a great deal about faith and community and have enabled me to be a more well-rounded, understanding believer and teacher.
As an adult, I found fellowship at the Free Methodist church and worked as an outreach pastor and later planted a small, non-denominational country church called Living Hope. Prior to my ministry in the church, I was a busy mom, raising two great kids and operated a Christian bookstore. I also worked as a hospital chaplain. Those are just a few of my hats.
Here are some of my latest workbooks:

A Beautiful Life: 101 Prayers and Affirmations (December 2016)
Faith, Hope and Healing: 101 Prayers and Affirmations (December 2016)
My sermons, workbooks and lectures reflect:
- A positive philosophy of cultivating hope and inspiration in daily living.
- Inspired living can be cultivated by improving our relationship with and understanding of Christ.
- The pursuit of spiritual formation.
- Intentional focus on the interior life.
- The spiritual practices of prayer, study, simplicity, and taking time for solitude and worship.
The following are my beliefs:
