Director of Development
In the summer of 2013, life turned upside down when Marnie found herself facing divorce for the second time. Completely lost, she begged for the Lord to help her. She had accepted the Lord when she was a young child but had never fully surrendered her life to God. She was at the lowest, darkest point in her life and she was desperate for God to intervene. For almost 2 years God took her on a journey of learning who He is and showing her who she is in Him. He brought healing and transformation to her brokenness and taught her about forgiveness. God gave her a renewed HOPE for her future.
In April 2015, during a sermon series entitled "BRAVE", the Lord laid it on her heart to do ministry for single moms. Over the next year, she prayed for what that ministry would look like and where He would have her do this. Almost exactly a year later, while on a trip to Kansas City, the Lord spoke to her that Kansas City was where she was supposed to be. Marnie became connected with The Single MOM KC in June 2016 and God began to open doors. On November 27, 2016, Marnie and her 9 year old daughter Rylee, said goodbye to all of their family and friends in Ohio, stepped out in faith and made Kansas City their new home.
Marnie is currently serving on The Single MOM KC Leadership Team as Director of Development, which she is passionate about. Having been a single mom twice in her life, she knows very well the challenges and struggles that single moms face. She believes wholeheartedly that the Lord brings good from all things that we walk through in this life and she has asked the Lord to use her and her journey to bring HOPE and ENCOURAGEMENT to other single moms that need to know that Jesus loves them and wants to bring beauty from the ashes of their life.
Marnie is the proud momma of three AMAZING children. Her daughter Rylee (9) and two grown sons, Derek (24) & Brandon (22), both of whom live in Ohio. They are her greatest blessings and the light of her life.
