I am so pleased that you have stopped by my website to learn more about me and/or to share about yourself. The great thing about this World Wide Web is that it connects us on so many levels.
I’m Marci Mason a mother, a motivational speaker, an activist, and an author. All of these titles mean something special to me. Being a mother is one of the greatest honors that God has bestowed upon me. It has been through motherhood, I’ve learned significant lessons of selflessness, unconditional love and support.
Being a motivational speaker has been a journey of emotional, spiritual, and physical change that has helped me to help others. I never thought anything about my life could motivate others, but I learned that we all experience some of the same issues in life but it’s how we deal with those issues that separate us. I won’t pretend that life after divorce has been easy but I will share that it is possible to move forward and begin to live a healthy lifestyle again!
Being an activist is dear to my heart. Mostly because it’s means I am active about something. At the tender age of 19, I was diagnosed with diabetes and it has been a subject close to my heart ever since. I feel so strongly about educating others to take care of themselves with this disease. Did you know more people die from complications of diabetes than any other disease in the world? I have been fortunate enough to work with the American Association of Diabetes in Baltimore, Dallas, and Nashville. I am just getting started; I have so much more work to do.
Becoming an author has been of most challenging journeys of my life. Not because I didn’t have a story to share but figuring how just how to share that story in a fashion that would be beneficial to others that may be experiencing the same things. Writing has been my therapy. And believe me when I tell you, after a divorce, all parties need some sort of therapy. I’ll be the first to publicly say I thought I’d be married forever. When my marriage ended, I was devastated not for just me, but also for my children. I never wanted them raised in a single parent home. I document 10 of the many lessons learned in my book Beyond the Pain. It is my prayer that something read, experienced, or discussed will bless you.
I don’t want to bore you to death as I respect your time so I’ll end here and allow you to continue surfing my site. Just know you are always welcomed back and hopefully through my book or our many future roundtable discussions, you will be blessed beyond the pain! Until I see you again, stay encouraged and please connect with me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.
