A little bit about myself---I was raised in the beautiful sunshine of Phoenix, Arizona, but, at 25, I found myself trapped in a difficult and abusive marriage. Out of desperation, I went against court orders and threw myself into a 22-year-long self-exile in a small farming village in Asia.
During that time, I learned to cook authentic Pakistani cuisine on an open flame, began teaching English in schools and universities, as well as, dedicated myself to various community service works.
Eventually, I returned to my homeland, and am now sharing my incredible experiences and supporting domestic violence awareness campaigns.
So, who is Marsha Marie? Well, I’m a mom, seeker, teacher, trainer, speaker and now---a writer and poet; hoping to share with others---the world thru my eyes.
Fun Facts about me..... I have three amazing children --one daughter and two sons.
My stomach starts hurting whenever I am late for ANYTHING! I drive my family crazy because we are always the first ones to arrive at any function.
If I feel that I am being cheated in any store, I won't hesitate to start a fight with the employees. Thus, my shopping vocabulary mostly consists of "May I speak to the manager, please !"
My favorite historical figure is Cleopatra.
During my childhood, I was teased at least one million times with this comment: "Hey, Marsha. Where's Jan?"
I sneeze just like my mother, about ten times in a row. ....thanks Mom!
The dictionary is my favorite book of all time. Thanks again Mom!
Most kids are playing on the playground in the first grade. Not me! I was playing 'teacher' and making my friends take tests. Sorry guys!
Yes, I'm really from America. (You'd be surprised how many times I get asked.)
I cried the first time I saw my pictures of the last photo shoot, because I hated my eyebrows --no, really, I still hate them!
My favorite verse in the Bible is John 3:16---the gospel simply could not be any easier to understand.
John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)--For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
