I’m Marlene, but I’ll answer to mom, grandma, Martle, Gigi, Nacho Mama (cause I’m not), Lucy (with my girl, Ethel), and Thelma (I’m not allowed to talk about Louise).
People who know things tell me to say that I am a professional speaker, but the truth is that I am a middle-aged hormonal woman with the gift of gab. It seems I have difficulty shutting up at times. Well, often. It’s the struggle of my life, along with losing weight and getting fit. Whatever that means. Fit is something my clothes do not do well, but I can certainly throw a good one.
I have a God-given passion for encouraging women. It definitely wasn’t my idea and I certainly don’t have it all together. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that my spiritual life is special because sometimes I stand on a stage and talk about Jesus. I’m still pretty much winging it every single day. But, what I try to do is be honest about my real life and my real faith. I share from my heart the life experiences I’ve gained from over 35 years of ministry, marriage, and parenting in hopes of giving other women a hand up and glimpse of the awesome God I serve.
I believe that God has a plan for each of us and that we are to walk this path together through the “one anothers” in the Bible. My belief in truth will always remain anchored in God’s Holy Word. I love discussing Scripture and sharing my unique perspective on the female journey with other women. I’d love for you to join me in discovering the exciting adventure He has for us. So grab a cup of coffee or Caramel Macchiato—my drug of choice—and let’s chat.
