Dave Marrs’ Hebrew Tattoo Demonstrates His Belief in God

Dave Marrs

If you watch HGTV, you’ve probably heard of Dave Marrs and his wife Jenny Marrs, who star in the reality show ‘Fixer to Fabulous.’ Fans of the show are intrigued not only by which historic home the duo will restore next, but also by a tattoo that Dave has just under his right bicep.

The tattoo is only occasionally visible when the show host raises his arm while wearing a t-shirt. He rarely (if ever) discusses it. So, in response to repeated questions, Jenny revealed in 2017 that the tattoo is in Hebrew and that its significance is rooted in her husband’s strong Christian faith. A clear image of the tattoo is difficult to come by on public platforms, but a video shot by Dave with a selfie stick reveals it to some extent.

Dave and his wife are devout Christians who are also passionate humanitarians

Fixer Upper viewers admire Dave Marrs and his wife for upholding midwestern values. These characteristics include friendliness, simplicity, down-to-earthiness, and Christian advocacy. In an interview with At Home in Arkansas, the couple revealed that their typical day begins with waking up around 6 a.m., followed by quiet time and Bible reading.

They aren’t just passive believers, either, as they are constantly looking for ways to do more than just pray and say Amen for those in need. When it comes to being down-to-earth, the reality show hosts adopted an orphaned child (named Sylvie) from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and have donated money on numerous occasions to help feed hungry children.

Aside from that, the caring couple operates a blueberry farm in Northwest Arkansas to provide educational opportunities for orphaned and at-risk teenage boys in Marondera, Zimbabwe. They have collaborated with Pastor John Chinyowa, the head of an orphanage in Zimbabwe, to help fund and train the youth there, as they frequently become delinquents after the age of 18.

The Zimbabwean orphanage youth receive vocational training to prepare them for adulthood thanks to funding support from the Berry Farm. Interestingly, the blueberry is very symbolic to the couple because berries are crops that produce fruit for a long period of time. According to the farm’s website, “if you nurture berries and properly care for them, your investment will last decades.”

This is comparable to “how we invest in the lives of the children in our program.” According to an Instagram post, the TV show stars have also assisted Pastor John in the establishment of a new church.

Dave’s tattoo expresses his faith in God even more

Most people are surprised that Dave has a tattoo, given the Marrs family’s upright, decent, and conservative image. That’s most likely why there’s been so much interest in it. While Dave has rarely spoken about it, his wife has told fans that the tattoo has special meaning for her husband, who is a devout Christian.

She explained that the writing is from the Hebrew scripture Psalm 18:2 and means “My Deliverer.” It’s a passage that could have a deeper meaning for Dave depending on what he was thinking when he had it done. The full passage of the psalm provides a clearer understanding of the TV show host’s Hebrew tattoo meaning:

The Marrs family consists of the couple, five children, and a slew of farm animals and pets

Dave Marrs has a cute family. The lovely couple is currently raising five children, all of whom are under the age of ten. Their youngest son, Luke, is just over a year old, their daughters, Charlotte and Sylvie, are 5 and 7 years old, and their twin boys, Nathan and Ben, are 9 years old. Dave shared an adorable photo of his five children getting dirty in the mud on December 20.

Aside from those little miscreants, the Marrs family also has twelve sheep, a llama, a half-dozen cows (with babies due soon! ), a dozen chickens, three dogs, and two kittens. In an interview, the TV show couple stated that their family is their top priority. Despite their extremely busy schedules, they have set strict boundaries on their time in the evenings and on weekends to protect their family time.
