Marit's story // her dreams

Hello there,

May I present you the third and last part of the interview I did with Marit, where she shares her story.

We started off by getting to know her, here, and then last time, in part 2, she courageously shared about her story, what had been hard, how she worked through it and what she learned. You can read that here. (I recommend reading them first)

And now, we're so lucky to get a sneak peak into her future. Marit is sharing her dreams & hopes for the future.

 

If you liked this little series of interview where Marit has shared her story, and are thinking this is something you might wanna do yourself? You can read more about it here, the vision behind it, why I do it, why I think you should do it and other all the other people I've had on the blog. I'd love to share your story too..

..but now, it's Marit's turn..

If you don't think about boxes, society, peoples opinions, educations, money or jobs, what would you love to do for a lifetime / what are you dreaming of doing?

I’m dreaming of being a missionary and live that full time. Go around to hospitals and pray for the sick to get healed, preach the gospel and see people get saved. I’m burning to see hearts made whole and people having good relationships with their parents. We are living in a fatherless generation, and my heart is burning for people to have good relationships with their fathers and mothers. I  wanna break the whole fatherless generation, I wanna heal the fathers so they don’t break their children, and I have a heart for mothers to be strong, healed and not let them be or feel oppressed.

That's what I feel my calling is - and this song describes what I'm point in a good way. 
Especially this quote from the song resonates with me;

“all men are broken, and broken men break their children” 

You can listen and watch it here:

 

If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to do?

A firelady. I just like action in general.

 

If you could learn one random skill, what would you like to learn?

How to speak a lot of different languages, be super fast to learn other languages and speak them pretty well.

 

What do you look the most forward to experiencing about getting  "older"?

Being free to chase after my dreams and what I love to do. Like traveling all around the world, see others country and culture.

 

What’s your childhood dream? Are you still pursuing that?

I wanted to be a vet/animal doctor. And no, I'm not chasing that dream anymore now. but I'm chasing after being able to have a couple of pets, like two dogs and a cat.

 

What do you think about more than anything else?

Jesus and training/workouts.

 

Who is someone that amazes and inspires you? & why?

Someone that inspires me is Havilah Cunnington. I am amazed by how she is living out her calling in life, and still, have a family and make the normal life work with her calling in everyday life. She has 4 boys, are married and have a dog, yet she is still traveling a lot and preaches the gospel.  She is burning to see people get into their calling in life and know who they are in Jesus Christ and their purity. And that's also what I want to do. Traveling a lot around the world - preaching the gospel still, have a wonderful family life with kids and have a dog or two

 

 

Thank you again, for sharing your hearts with us.

I hope this somehow resonated you, inspired you and gave you hope for your future and dreams. 

Marit will be responding to the comments, so if you have something on your heart or a question, feel free to leave them below!

 

That's it. Thanks for reading!

Marit's story // her story

0280A8CA-592C-40F9-98AD-07B6F3E6FBDD.jpg

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.

"It’s better to give your heart an opportunity to find love rather than keep it locked away due to fear of possible pain."

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.

I have this friend, she's one of the most genuine human being I've ever met.
& I like her a lot. You will like her too. That's why she's now here on my blog.
She's a natural beauty.
She has a big big heart which makes her sensitive to life, but gives her a depth you can only imagine.
She will cherish her loved ones to the sky and higher.
She has a childlike heart, that gives her a unique perspective on life. A perspective we could all learn from. 

As you may or may not know, I love hearing people's stories.
This quote describes it well: 
"There isn't a person you wouldn't love, ones you've heard their story"

People's story is what have shaped them to the human they are today.

I want my blog to be a place where people can come and share their story. 
I believe there's healing in sharing your story.
I believe we can all learn from each others stories.
& that's why I want to share not only mine, but other inspiring people's story.
If you're interested in my story - I'm the girl behind the blog, click here, I also do share my journey, as I learn things through this blog & small snippets on my instagram, especially the captions.
if you wanna know more about sharing your story you can read more about that right here.

 

So here's the courageous Marit, bravely sharing her story, dreams and everything in between.
It's a longer interview, we go deep, so you might wanna read this with a cup of tea in your hand. It's not something to just skim through. Trust me.

A // the basics
 

What do you want me to call you?

You can call me Morill or Pearl, I prefer to be named by my nickname. I like my nicknames a lot.

 

What century were you born in & what do you love most about that century?

1995, I don't know actually. I just love it.



Where / what do you call home?

I have a lots of home. What is really home and make me relax totally and give me the real feeling about being home is in Trondheim (Norway), where my parents live.

 

What are the thing you do now, that you're the most passionate about?

Beginning of this year I attended kickboxing. And that's the thing that I really love and are passioned about. I just love to workout and to learn how to get a stronger and a healthier body. And it's so fun, at the same time it's really hard to workout - but it's good for my body though. It's so good to get to know your body. I am really passioned about workout and I love the sport: kickboxing.

 

B // HANDPICKED by me for you

What quality do you admire most in others?

That they are honest and not afraid to tell what they mean or what they have on their heart/mind. And that they are free to be them self always, no matter what people say. Because they know who the are.

 

What superpower would you like to have?

To fly or run really fast.

 

If you could be any age for a week, what age would you be and what would you do?

The age that I am right now and just travel around the whole world. Or I would maybe try to be 5 years old and just play and having fun every day, go to aqua land (maybe I should be older then). Love the age that I am in now.

 

What is freedom for you?

Free to be the child of Abba Father that He has called me to be. Being able to be myself, and get to express myself without that I have to be someone else, or pushed to do so. Freedom for me is a feather, which fly by the wind and just follow where the wind goes. That is a picture for me that I am the feather, and Holy Spirit is the wind. And that I follow what the Holy Spirit/Abba Father tell me to go, I go. And it's such a joy in that, because it's amazing to see that the feather just love to fly by the wind and it's looks really fun - that's who it is to follow you Father, Holy Spirit, where He tells you to go. Feather is a symbol of freedom for me, and also the cross of course - the symbol of that Jesus have taken all of my sins, so that I can walk freely to my Father without being afraid to get judged or have to do things to get loved by Him. I am already forgiven and loved by Him.

 

What does being a wildflower mean to you?

It means for me that I can the person and woman I am called to be. And it means for me at I am free to live in my true identity as a daughter of Heavenly Father God, who I believe in.

 

What is a home for you?

A place where I can be 100 % me, a warm place with people that I love, a little bit mess around the house, fresh made bread that smells all around the house, boiled egg, long conservation around the table while eating, a place where I laugh a lot.

 

What's the last / newest thing you learned about yourself?

That my stomach doesn't like too much oats..
