M46 was birthed from Malachi 4:6
Shortly after Abbe’s murder in 2018, the Lord spoke to her father Bryan from the Gospel of John, “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” (John 12:24)
Like a seed that falls to the ground and dies, death proceeds life. The old ceases to exist. Jesus was a single seed before His death. Jesus’ death resulted in the greatest victory of all time for those who repent, believe, and receive His new creation life. His life and His Spirit have been multiplied into His entire body of believers through the Holy Spirit. By God’s grace, Abbe’s death was not in vain.
In the midst of extreme tragedy and brokenness, the thought of Bryan and Bryn coming together to start a ministry was impossible, but for the grace of God. God opened door after door, and soon, they were ready to share their story with the world through M46 Ministries.
On May 23, 2022, four years to the day of Abbe’s murder, Bryan and Bryn launched M46 Ministries with the release of Bryn’s book, Dying to Live. Bryn’s book testifies to the promise of God in John 12:24 of Abbe’s death producing many seeds, her glorious new creation life, and the process of being conformed into the image of Jesus.
Today, they are on a mission to draw fathers and children to the heart of the Father through their books, blogs, podcasts, speaking engagements, and various social media platforms. Their lives are a testimony of God working all things together for the good for those who love Him.
Abbe is safely home with her Father in heaven. Her life continues to bear much fruit through the ongoing testimony of her father and sister. Nothing wasted. Nothing lost. This is His Kingdom. What the enemy intended for evil, God is now using for good through her father and sister.
Bryan released his first book, More Than Gold on March 17, 2023, what would have been Abbe’s 26th birthday. Though Abbe’s life will forever be missed, God used her tragic loss to bring new life to the Elliott family.
