My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Maria. 

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.



For those of us who know Maria Bernal, we can honestly say that she is one of the most beautiful, sincere, God-fearing women we have ever met. Those of us who have shared life with her or even one conversation, have had their hearts and lives touched forever. Maria is a mom, a friend, a confidant, a mentor, and mostly an incredible example of what it means to be a true Christian woman. This is why it has been such a long, difficult, and challenging journey, the one that Maria, her family and friends have endured the past 5 years with Maria's cancer. And although the journey has been filled with trials and suffering, God has reminded us constantly that no suffering goes without glory and that faith and perseverance will get us through the storm. 


 "The difficulties of human life have meaning when they are accepted as God's discipline, and if Christians persevere in fidelity to the word in which they have believed, they are assured of possessing forever the unshakable kingdom of God." 

God Bless Always!
