About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

"My Hearts Desire: A Journey Toward Finding Extravagant Love"; is a powerful story of the authors struggle to find everlasting love that its readers will easily identify with. With honesty and emotion, Mary Singer Wick walks you through seven years of heartbreaking trials beginning with the diagnosis that, as an otherwise healthy single woman, she may never have children. Desiring to be a wife and mother more than a career woman, she begins her desperate search for a cure. Healing eventually comes, but not in a way she expected.

By God’s grace, Mary is drawn into the most powerful love relationship of all—the one with her Savior who heals her broken heart. Joining an evangelical Baptist church, she becomes involved in a women’s Bible study, programs for adult singles/single again, and the women’s mentoring program. As her soul is nourished by these relationships, and God’s Word, she begins to discover where true satisfaction is found.

Mary’s story is a perfect blend of personal experiences coupled with practical biblical advice for successful Christian living. This book contains a wealth of wisdom to be shared in counseling, teaching, and mentoring sessions. The reader will witness Mary’s transformation from loneliness and despair, to hope and renewed faith. Follow her journey from single-hood to marriage life and profit from the lessons Mary and her future husband, Jon, apply to their dating relationship.

About the Author

Mary is a speaker and writer committed to using her gifts of exhortation and encouragement to draw women into a deeper relationship with Christ. She desires to see lives transformed as she passionately shares the work of God’s Holy Spirit in her life, and the power that is available to all believers. Mary’s zeal for God’s Word, and her ability to communicate this love, has earned her the nickname of “Miss Enthusiasm” by those closest to her.

Mary was born and raised in the suburbs of Syracuse, New York where she attended the State University of New York at Cortland earning her Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. She spent 11 years working and attending school in Boston, Massachusetts where she received her Master’s degree from Boston College in Higher Education Administration. Upon graduation in 1995, Mary relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina to begin a new career in technical recruiting. She never dreamed she’d be a speaker and author of a published book, but God had other plans.

In 2002, shortly after becoming a first-time bride at the age of 44, Mary sensed the Lord asking her to share her story of hope with other women. Over the next few years she wrestled with God’s call on her life; finally stepping forth in obedience in 2008 when she began writing "My Heart’s Desire: A Journey Toward Finding Extravagant Love".

Mary and her husband, Jon, live in Raleigh, North Carolina. They are members of Providence Baptist Church where Mary serves in the women’s mentoring program. She operates her speaking ministry under the name of Extravagant Life, LLC. For more information please visit www.extravagantlife.net.
