Speaking & Teaching

Learning about the wide goodness of God and passing it on
Get Started

I’m a Bible teacher and speaker. I speak on a wide range of topics, and am especially passionate about educating people on the stages of faith, knowing their stories, and spiritual formation through struggle.

I write curriculum and collaborate with others who share my vision of helping people live life on purpose.

Untangle Your Story and Uncover Your Purpose

Writing is a proven way to improve mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Freestyle writing is known to help us work through painful memories or troubling events, bring closure, gain clarity, and change our perspective. 

This three-part course includes stories of women in the Bible who “rewrote” the stories of their lives, guided freestyle writing exercises, a brief lesson on how to analyze your writings, and I’ll give you tools and resources to help you continue writing on your own without the guilt or burden of daily journaling.

This course will: 

  • Inspire you to write as a healing and formational practice

  • Help you understand your story in the context of the Grand Story 

  • Motivate you to reframe your story and allow God to give you a renewed vision and purpose for your life

Why Marie?

I’ve experienced the painful disorientation of wrestling with my faith and learned that it’s a vital part of the journey to wholeness. I know the deep grief of losing those I love. I’m a mother whose young adult children are struggling to make sense of their church experience. I am an advocate for survivors of spiritual abuse.

I know what it is to experience healing within a community of people who love Jesus and work to love one another. I know the freedom that comes from sharing the hard parts of our stories. I love the church and teach, speak, and write to point us back to Jesus.
