On October 2, 2006, Marie’s then-husband made a decision to hold an Amish schoolhouse hostage, forever changing life as she knew it. On her darkest day, Marie simply chose to believe that HE IS. Her act of faith radically propelled her into a future she could not have hoped for or imagined. In the years since that terrible day, God continues to unfold his beautiful plan of redemption over her family. Marie tells a story of forgiveness, healing, and the restoration God has done in her life.
"I may be a speaker and an author, but I’m a wife and mom of six kids -- only three at home -- and a grandmom. I’m passionate about my family and believe in the redemptive beauty of adoption. Family dinners are a priority in our home. Sometimes, that means a nice meal on my grandma’s special dishes; other days, that’s leftovers on paper plates. Those twelve plus pairs of shoes cluttering the floor? I’m still working on that."
