Hey! My name is Mary-Claire Marcear, I am an adventure-loving college student whose life has been radically changed by the love of Jesus. My freshman year of college, God took my passion for art and my heart for ministry and put the inspiration for Boholy Bibles on my heart. First and foremost: this is a ministry not a business. My heart is for sharing God’s word and making it accessible to everyone. In life, and college especially, it is so hard to find time to get in the Word. I believe that if you have a Bible that reflects your heart, you are not only more likely to read it, but you’ll be EXCITED about it! I tailor each Bible to the individual and their heart and passions. I am so blessed to be able to walk alongside each person in their faith journey, even if its only for a short time. I want to make your Bible an essential tool you take on every adventure, for wherever you wander. This is the echo of my life and ministry: putting God’s Living Word into color, for free-spirits who are FREE IN THE SPIRIT!

So why the buffalo?

I have always been the girl to stop on the side of the road to pick wildflowers, who will go miles out of her way to chase a sunset, and feels closest to God in the wild places of the world. I think that the buffalo beautifully reflects the steadfast and wild love that God has for all of His children. My favorite hymn is Come Thou Fount, and it sings, “bind my wandering heart to Thee.” This line sums up my mission for Boholy Bibles and the community that surrounds it; for those with buffalo souls, strong with the need to seek and roam.
