Jenny Marrs Commits to Pray for Her Family in 2021

By Movieguide® Staff

Instead of announcing a resolution with the start of the new year, FIXER TO FABULOUS’ Jenny Marrs committed her 2021 to prayer.  

“At the start of each year, rather than crafting New Year’s resolutions, which are based on my own will-power and grit, I spend time recording prayers for the coming year,” Marrs wrote on Instagram.

The HGTV star hosts alongside her husband, Dave, as they renovate homes in Arkansas. Jenny and Dave parent 1-year-old Luke, 5-year-old Charlotte, 7-year-old Sylvie, and twin boys Nathan and Ben, 9.

Family and faith are essential for the Marrses.  

“Through the process, I often find myself drawn to a specific verse that I pray over my family throughout the year,” Marrs said. “My 2021 verse is recorded in two books, which feels significant in and of itself:

‘As for God, his way is perfect.

All the Lord’s promises prove true.

He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.

{2 Samuel 22:31 & Psalm 18:30}’”

“This verse led to my word for the year: Shield,” Marrs added. “I love the imagery of God being our shield against the fiery arrows of the enemy. Against harsh words and lies and physical harm.”

Jenny and Dave, who were married 15  years ago, recently talked with Movieguide® about their faith, family, and shooting their show during the pandemic.

‘We know that God led us to this opportunity,’ Jenny says. ‘It definitely was never on our radar to do a television show. We fought against it big time. We didn’t want to do it at first at all, and we prayed a lot about it. We just know that God led us to this opportunity because He opened the door. He put this in our lives in order to put programming on television that glorifies Him in some way.’

The television host continues, ‘I mean, yes, we’re renovating houses, but we’re hoping that just people see something different in our family. They maybe then go to my Instagram and they are like, ‘Oh wait, what, what is this God she’s talking about?’

‘Our goal as a family is always to bring light into the world however we can do that, and if we can do that through a home renovation show, then that’s what we’ll do.’
