Marianne and her husband of 35 years live in Old Church with their Bernese Mountain Dog, Jake. They enjoy spending time with good friends, hosting parties and each and every moment with their sons. Marianne has loved horses and enjoyed horseback riding from as far back as she can remember. She also enjoys quiet time and reading mystery and suspense novels. A member of Fairmount Christian Church, Marianne loves the Lord and spending time every morning in His Word. She lives in the hope of Jesus’ promise to return.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. – John 14:1-3
