My passion is encouraging others in their Christian walk through my books, blog, and public speaking. Topics included Staying Strong In Your Faith, What Heaven Will Be Like, Looking Back To Move Forward, Signs Dreams and Wonders, and Lessons Learned While Teaching A Teenager To Drive. My presentations are unpretentious and down-home with side helpings of humor and wit. I use a combination of power point and video clips to underscore my messages of hope and encouragement. My target audiences are Christians who are facing life challenges or who simply need to be reminded of God's promises. Will travel across the US with advance notice.

What to Expect
After opening with a brief introduction, I present my topics with down-home simplicity interspersed with bits of humor and wit. Speaking with honesty and openness I try to help my audiences feel comfortable and relaxed by not standing behind a podium but instead sitting on the steps or edge of the stage. I use common images from everyday life to underscore lessons about heaven, faith, and life in general. Several of the topics also have accompanying video clips from popular movies that are used to reinforce important points from the lessons. My presentations are custom-fit for each audience, whether it be a Christian women's gathering or an auditorium full of high school students.
Will gladly travel across the US with advance notice.
Having lived and taught in several states Marie settled down in the place she had originally dreamed of when she was younger...Colorado. After a total of 17 years of teaching and meeting many wonderful people across the United States she drew from her experiences, followed her passion for writing and encouraging others, and began writing full-time. She now lives near Colorado Springs where she writes guided journals inspired by God's creations as well as informational books. Her most recent publication is the book "Heaven: Pushing Up Daisies Ain't So Scary", a book meant to alleviate the fear of death and comfort those who recently lost a loved one. She is also currently working on a book that examines some of the similarities and differences between of the major world religions. When she is not writing or sharing her excitement about heaven with others she enjoys gardening and exploring the nearby mountains with her teenage son.

I prefer to sing with my audience and I'm sure they would appreciate it more that way.
Influences & Inspiration
Beth Moore's passion for sharing her faith combined with her tenderness and humor are an inspiration to me. Joyce Meyer's strength and openness about her triumphs as well as struggles are an encouragement to me too. When I grow up I want to be like them.
