March 2020 - Check out Mary's new - 2 books in 1:
Don't Just Sing, Minister Through Music, Books 1 and 2.
Book 1 explains basic information about Music Ministry. It has been available for years, but now is updated and combined with the second book in the combo.
Book 2 - is a Collection of Revelations and Reflections from more than 30 years of Music Ministry.
(The original drafts for this book are still available on my website under the section -
The Skilled Musician. Good News: New chapters have been added to create book 2.)
In Book 2, I share challenges, blessings and valuable lessons that I experienced through my many years as a music director, worship leader, lead singer for a quartet, guest speaker and concert soloist. I provide strategies and skills to benefit all who minister through music. I present new perspectives about real-life ministry issues and Bible-based answers that are relevant to current concerns. I pray that both books will encourage you and help you gain a deeper understanding of ministering through music.
Now, the two book combo, Don't Just Sing, Minister Through Music, Books 1 and 2, is in paperback and available at Amazon.com.

January 2019 - There were some dramatic changes in my life during 2019. In November 2018,
God made it very clear: It was time for me to step down from my position as Worship Leader in our home church. It was time for me to totally focus on Speaking and Singing, sharing the Bible-based parenting answers that our nation's families desperately need. No longer can we settle for the latest theories and feel-good philosophies. Our families need solid, practical, Bible-based teaching that will help all family members live caring, responsible lives.
I cannot imagine a church that would say, "We don't need this information. All of our families are perfect." In the news, it is obvious that our families need a revelation of who God is, how to choose Him over the things of this world and how to serve Him with their whole hearts. God tells us that His people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). What are you specifically doing to teach parenting at your church? I have real Bible-based information and practical answers to share with Christian families - information and answers that I have gleaned from over thirty years of teaching school and over twenty years of sharing these messages in church services and at women's meetings.
You may say, "Our families aren't perfect, but they are not in crisis." It is not wise to wait until a crisis occurs and then try to recover from destructive attitudes, addictions and even extreme violence that you never dreamed would impact your family or church. It is better to openly address parenting issues and concerns before they become present in our lives.
Of all of the positive encouragement I have received after presenting these messages, the ones I cherish the most are those who tell me that I do not condemn the parents. They tell me that the information I present is easy to understand and is encouraging because it is presented in love.
Do the parents and grandparents in your church appreciate hearing real answers to their real problems and concerns? To learn more or schedule your church or women's group for powerful life-changing teachings, contact Rev. Mary Willock:
Parenting books written by Mary Willock:
When Compassion Turns to Enabling
and When Enabling and Alzheimer's Collide.
If you have family members who need to become more caring and responsible, you need to read both books. These books provide practical help and hope for families who are caught up in the dysfunction and destruction of enabling. You can invite me to share this life-changing information on a Sunday morning,
followed by a Sunday night service. I am also available for a three hour conference on a Saturday morning. Contact me at 772-878-9695.
Restoring Christian Families through Bible-Based Parenting
Have you read a multitude of parenting books written by "experts?" Some parenting books may help you, but if they contain vain philosophies you will get more off what we already have - a nation out of control. Isn't it time you learned about parenting from a teacher's perspective?
Who will benefit from this book? The parenting strategies and Biblical foundations I present in this book apply to public school, private school and home school children. Parents and grandparents who know the value of God's Word will learn much to help their children become caring, responsible adults.
Chapter 13: Reclaiming Our Schools for Christ
