Usually that friend is one that is taught to love and is one that is faced with the earlier challenges of life. Snap Shots To The portrait also takes us to the place and reminds us what the true treasures in life our. (Jesus says not to cast our pearl before the swine.)

About Mark C Tate
Born in 1974 in a little town called Mcleansboro, Il my parents Martin and Judy Tate two very honest hard working individuals. Growing up in this atmosphere taught me morals such as, respect, responsibility, and generosity. I attended grade school at Ewing Northern and went on to graduate high school at Mcleanesboro Il. After graduating and turning 18 I went to become a national guard, but after talking to a seaman in the navy I enlisted with the United States Navy. After finishing boot camp my entire Navy career consisted of six months and twenty days ending in a medical discharge. I married a childhood sweetheart Kimberly Sue Kinnear in 1996. A year later we were blessed with our only child Nicholas Christian Tate. That same year I began M.T. Construction my business has been completely blessed and has blessed so many others. Even though God walked beside me in the good times and the bad it wasn't till age 30 that I felt him drawing me and revealing the true purpose and calling he had for me . Things have never been the same. I believe the purpose of why God has put me here is to teach and show that he doesn't want to destroy us he loves us as a father loves his children. He wants a relationship with his children. Snap Shots To The Portrait has helped me realize God is really with us even though we cant always visibly see him. Publishing a book called Tug o war in 2010 I was really excited about Tug war and what God was going to do with it in peoples lives. There was some good things that happened with Tug o war. The best thing that I saw was it showed me that our moments and experiences are nothing compared to helping people experience God themselves. I believe reading Snap Shots To The Portrait will better help us better understand God our father by an everyday thing called life. I have fulfilled several positions when needed from pastor to a servant of God. The place that he has me today besides been a author is working with teenagers which I love it because their hearts are tender not hardened from religion and hurt. Meeting and setting under several very simple but mighty men of God I have seen God do great and mighty miracles. The time I enjoy most is my quiet time with the father as he holds my hand while we walk together teaching me and showing me his will for mankind. I believe Snap Shots To the Portrait can be the beginning of this for you.
