Marit's story // her story


If you're wondering about all the beautiful portraits, it was a gift for her 20th birthday. We were both full time in school & I was broke, BUT a photoshoot wouldn't cost me any money. It cost me a bit of time, but I had absolutely no problem spending some quality time with this bomb of joy + time is my love language. 
Anyways, we had so much fun, we were almost late to her own birthday party, but it was worth it. (I think, wasn't it, Morilla?)

If you haven't read part one yet, where you get to know her, you can click here. (I recommend reading that first)

This is part two, where we dive in to her story a bit more. It's getting deeper and more vulnerable, but it's something I believe we can all learn from. I believe there's healing in sharing (of course, first when you're ready!), so let's honour her when she courageously shares her story with us. 

Lastly; she'll join you in the comments below, so be sure to leave a kind comment.


What are the things you're family taught you, that you're very thankful for now? 

I am thankful that my parents taught my about Jesus, and how amazing He are. I am also really glad that we traveled a lot when I was young, both in Norway and foreign countries. 


What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?

The strangest things I believed as a child was that when we loose our tooth, we laid it in water, and then it turned out be money. And If you laid it there for some couples days more, it turned out to be more money. So I believes that if you have your tooth in water for long, you will get a lot of money. Haha!


How has your birth order of siblings affected you?

I was the youngest child, I have to older siblings. 


What are you most proud about with yourself?

I like my face, I think I look beautiful! And I'm proud of that I have a lot of muscles. I like to workout!


What's been the hardest thing you've walked through, what did you learn from it?

A year ago, I was happily engaged without knowing that, everything was about to change dramatically. My fiancé told me he was going through some stuff and that he needed space. I lived in an uncertainty about if the relationship would survive / continue. Unfortunately it ended with him breaking up with me.
Well, this is a process that I’m still going through at the moment, it has cost me a lot but also taught me a lot at the same time.

“Rejection is never a reflection of your value.”
– Andrea Alley

One of the main things I’ve learned, that I’m still learning, is that DaddyGod never lets me down. He is always with me. He never leaves me alone. 
If you don't open your heart, then you won’t learn anything. You just need to be brave enough to open up a little bit, and not hide in a closet, ‘cause than you ain’t gonna learn anything. ;)
Something I’ve learned is to never give up. You’re never alone, there will always be people around you, who will still be there for you and love you.

What moment have been the biggest life-changer in your life?

That have to be when I got a meeting with God in 10th grade. A while before this meeting with God happened, I told Him that I wouldn't believe in Him anymore or have to do anything with him. Then I experienced something terrible. I was in a lot of pain, but then suddenly Papa God came and held around my heart, like I felt it physical. And from that point I knew Papa God existed, and I started to believe in Him. So that's actually the time when I got saved.

What advice would you give your younger self?

Papa God will never leave, nor forsake you. He is always going to be with you, no matter what you are going through. You will never be alone. Everything is going to work out, you never have to worry. It always work out. Daddy God is with you. (Still preaching that to my self)


And vice verca, what are the things you miss about being younger, that your older or adult-self could need to learn or remember? 

That I just could play around and didn't have to think about economy and paying bills. Stop worrying, Morill, it's going to be alright, Daddy is with you.


How do you think your younger self would look at what you've become?

Wow, she is strong and brave. I have grown so much, look at me, living and learning about my identity in Jesus Christ. I wish I would know that life isn't that crazy and that Papa God is always with me. I would never thought that I would live radical for Jesus and wanting to be a missionary. I would be scared if I got to know all the things I have been through, if I was only  8 years old. 8 years old of me would have said - I want to be like her and wow, I have grown a lot. 


And that's a wrap for part two. Thank you for reading along. Part 3, the part I'm the most excited for, where she'll share her dreams, will be up soon. So be sure to tune in!

And just a gentle reminder, to leave comments below. Marit will be at the keyboard, ready to respond.
