Marilyn Nutter holds an MA in Communication Disorders and has taught at Christian colleges for twenty-three years. She has also practiced as a speech-language pathologist (SLP) primarily in long term health care. In 2004 she sensed that God was moving her away from her career to writing and other areas of ministry. Since that time, she has been a contributor to Life on Purpose for Mothers, Leadership Connections Magazine, Chicken Soup for the Mother of Preschooler’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms,ChristianDevotions.us, Laundry Tales, Simple Joy, and Girlfriend2Girlfriend. Her first book, Dressed up Moms’ Devotions to Go, was released in May, 2006.
Nearly thirty years ago Marilyn had the benefit of a mentor who pointed her to extraordinary treasures from the Bible. She has also found that life's paths with its detours, seasons, and challenges have priceless God-given treasures along the way and inspired her to write Diva Delights. She considers it a privilege to pass on her life experiences through writing and teaching. Now as a Boomer Grandma, she looks forward to new stories to share.
Marilyn has been involved with women's ministries in her church for several years as a MOPS mentor and a Bible study teacher. Her experiences as a member of a tea group prompted her to write Tea Lovers' Devotions to Go. She enjoys sharing refreshment to women's groups in learning about tea as a beverage and as an experience and has developed a course for a community college.
Marilyn has lived in the Charlotte, N C area since 2009 and worships at Life Fellowship http://www.lifecharlotte.com/. Marilyn serves on the women's ministries team and coordinates the mentoring ministry. In December, 2011, her life abruptly changed, when her husband suffered a fatal attack. She has three grown daughters, three sons-in-law, and six sweet grandchilldren. When they all gather around her kitchen table, you will hear her say without a doubt, "My cup is running over."
