Who is Mark Aronowitz?!

                   I am a 31 year old Youth Pastor living in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee with my beautiful wife Becca.  Becca has been the greatest blessing the Lord has ever given me! She teaches me more every day about what it means to love unconditionally.  There is nothing I would rather do than take care of and spend time with her!  The Lord is still molding our Love Story as He wants!  Every day with Becca is sweeter, full of more love than I ever imagined possible.  I am originally from Eastern Iowa and still feel very connected to the midwest (especially because of the role it played in my journey!).  Although my family is scattered throughout the US (Iowa, Texas, Tennessee) I still feel their love deeper than ever before.  Christ is my reason for being, and my family is my world.  I am so passionate about people meeting and coming into a growing relationship with Jesus.   If I’m not at the church or with my wife you might catch me golfing, traveling, cooking, or catching the next hawkeye or houston sporting event on tv.  I love to watch the seasons of weather come and go (winter, spring, summer, and fall)!  I LOVE cool mornings, a GREAT cup of coffee, and quiet time with my Jesus.   Becca and I adopted a mini-schnauzer (ELLIE) back in October of 2007 and she is now 5 1/2  years old!   It has been such a joy to care for her and watch her grow (although she’s now finished growing…all 12 pounds!  She brings so much personality to our small family!   In December of 2009 we added a second dog (Emma/ a now 5 year old Schnauzer Poodle) to our family!  Such a joy to have those 2 little personalities around the house! 

                   Thanks for stopping by my website.  I pray that my blogging ministers to your heart and meets you where you are at in your life and on your turf.   Everybody has a story and ever story can have an impact…this is mine.

    You forgot to mention PULP. Which was probably the most important morning fiasco of your life.

    What can I say about Mark?

    When I was young–(A long time ago!)– I remember thinking of what I would become when I grew up–still working on that one.
    However, I now know what I wish I was when I was younger and that would be Mark Aronowitz!
    (Then I could correct his flaw of support of the wrong NL Central Baseball club.)
    Mark you are a good example for not only your youth but their parents too.

    My sister, Dian, told me about your blog. I am your dad’s cousin, and I cannot believe how much you resemble him! Thanks for sharing your journey. I know your parents and your grandma (my Aunt Jean) are very proud of you. Even though I have only met you a couple of times, I am thankful to have the chance to know you better through your blog!
    Blessings to you and your beautiful wife (and your cute puppy dog!)

    Hi Mark, I am your Dad’s cousin. I have enjoyed reading your blog for some time now. Especially enjoyed your tribute to your Dad today on his 59th birthday. Hope we get to see you and your wife again sometime!

    Hi Mark (and Becca and darling dog)!
    I think you’ll be happy to know that as a young bride in Fort Worth in 1964, I read your grandfather’s fruit cake recipe in the Star-Telegram (for which I later wrote) and decided I was brave enough to make something so fancy! What a hit—with my family in Oklahoma, my friends at church (always a big seller at the church bazaar), as a special gift. For 45 years Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without making at least one Aronowitz fruit cake. Isn’t it surprising how, like dropping a pebble in the lake, you never know where the ripples will end. My husband and I now live in Hot Springs Village in Arkansas, and I’m carrying on the Aronowitz tradition here!
    Congratulations on taking on the mantel of a wonderful celebration tradition!
