Write Canada Gala 2014 - accepting award

When a friend dragged me to a seminar called Speak Up With Confidence taught by Carol Kent, I never dreamed I would actually be in front of a microphone some day. God had a plan! Speaking to women’s groups has become one of the joys of my ministry.

And I would love to speak to your group about finding our way home, into the palm of God’s hand. This theme flows through many topics, as listed below, or I am happy to speak on a topic of your choice.

I am available for women’s retreats and one-day events of all kinds.

What people have said:

“Thank you so much for sharing your soul and life at our Ladies Retreat. The Lord truly used you to speak to many hearts and lives there. Your genuine spirit was a great inspiration.”  Hilda Tucker, Good News Community Church Women’s Retreat, Ryley AB

” I really felt the Lord personally this weekend – he reached me through our prayers, the ladies, the worship and mostly through Marcia’s speaking.  I so appreciated her being there and feel honoured to know her.” Heidi Scharff, Camp Silversides Women’s Retreat

“Marcia has a gift for distilling the spiritual significance and meaning from everyday events of life. She captures our attention and then blesses us with words of hope and encouragement.” Debbie Zepick – Asker Lutheran Church

“Marcia’s soft and gentle manner was healing to those hurting and challenging to those of us that need to reach out beyond our Christian circle and share Christ’s love. Her devotional book brings spiritual truth to daily living.” Eileen Weber, coordinator of REalTreat, Regina Saskatchewan

“A great speaker – an inspiring and inspired woman.” Ginny Eklund, New Sweden Mission Church, New Sweden AB.

“I am sure the Lord will use Marcia to reach many women. She is very sincere & read very little of her talk, presenting the Gospel well.” Joanne McRae, Regional Speaker Trainer, Stonecroft Ministries (Now RSVP Ministries).
