Let me tell you a little bit about me. My name is Mark Lile. I grew up in Wood River, Illinois, and I now live in Greenback, Tennessee. Years ago, I developed a love for writing. I soon decided I wanted to use my writing to bring encouragement to others. If I can help you look at life from a different perspective, I have succeeded. 

Ben Franklin was once quoted as saying, “Life’s tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.” If I can share some nuggets of wisdom and help someone, I will consider my mission to be accomplished.

I have discovered the answers to virtually every problem we ever face can be found in God’s word. Consequently, as you read my writings, you will find I often use Bible passages to reinforce the thoughts I write. 

My interests include photography, travel, computers, and music of all types. I also am a big fan of famous quotes. You will often see me use famous quotes in my blog posts and I frequently will post quotes on my Twitter page.

My hope is that as you read my posts, you will find something that speaks to you and brings you encouragement.  In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, ” What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”  

If you find something in my writing that brings encouragement to you, I would love to hear from you. You can connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
