In 2004 Marilyn sensed that God was moving her away from her career as a speech-language pathologist and professor in Christian higher ed, to writing and other areas of women’s ministry. Since that time, she has served in women’s ministries and a contributor to print, compilations and on-line blogs and sites.
Nearly thirty years ago, Marilyn had the benefit of a mentor who pointed her to extraordinary treasures from the Bible. She has also found that life’s paths with its detours, seasons, and challenges have priceless God-given treasures along the way and inspired her to write devotions and devotional books.
Marilyn and her husband took early retirement and moved to the Charlotte area in January 2009. Life abruptly changed in December, 2011, when her husband suffered a fatal attack. Her experience with grief and loss have allowed her to contribute to blogs on that topic and serve as a facilitator and speaker for a grief support group at her church.
In August 2014 she moved to Greer, SC where she enjoys being near family and serves in women’s ministries at Taylors First Baptist Church. She has found God’s faithfulness to be real with every step she takes and draws on the truth of Lamentations 3:22-23 daily.
Marilyn has three grown daughters, three sons-in-law, and eight sweet grandchildren. When her family gathers around her dining room table, you will hear Marilyn say without a doubt, “My cup is running over.”
