Mari lives life wrapped in her husband’s arms with a latte in one hand, chocolate in the other, and a frequent twinge of a mischievous smile. Married for 29 years to her pastor, she has three adult children that miraculously survived growing up in the fishbowl called…the parsonage. Blessed with five adorable grandchildren, she absolutely adores the title of Gwamma, Mampa, or whatever else they morph it into.
Mari dabbles in blog designs, assisting others to find their inner-blogginess. She will snag every opportunity to sing or speak publicly using humor transparency and practical encouragement. She also has this never-ending habit of telling stories or forming devotionals in her head. This incessant issue forces her to be glued to her laptop where she attempts to release the artsy side of her brain, which seems to have expanded through menopause.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 can be considered her mantra:“Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might.” (NIV)
