Great art is often born of great pain. Read about Vincent Van Gogh and you’ll never look at his paintings the same way again. Each brush stroke was an outward expression of his inner angst. Poor tortured guy.
I met Marsha at a Lifeway in Savannah, GA almost a decade ago. She was sitting at a card table behind neatly stacked copies of her latest book, hawking them with the shame and subtlety of a carnival barker. Usually I flee from bawdy book-selling blondes, but Marsha's charm and sense of humor engaged me from the start. Plus, her eyes twinkled. M has very twinkly eyes.
I knew Marsha for eight years before she told me her story, a small part of which she bravely shared this week at heartland. Please stop on over there and read not only her personal story, but also the samples of her new eBook, Lambu Looks at the Bible. You'll be glad you did.
Described by her pastor as "Lucille Ball meets Billy Graham," Marsha has written many books (some of which are pictured below), including three for Random House. A former flight attendant, Marsha lives in Savannah, Georgia with her husband Tom and daughter Mandy.
