One Sentence Interview: Marian Parsons aka Miss Mustard Seed


Marian is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to painting. She is one of a kind in her field…and there are thousands who are trying to duplicate what she does. So much so …that she was recently contracted to create her own custom paint line with Homestead House paints and write a how to book about her painting techniques. Her success is young…but she hasn’t let any of it go to her head. Her mission…”move mountains in your home” is based on the Bible verse Matthew 17:20

“Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Kind of a great mantra to live by in my opinion….and she does move mountains. Marian is inspiring to me and I know she will be to you also. Thank you Miss Mustard Seed for participating…you are truly a gem ;)
