Marianne is very excited to begin this new school year as the Music Teacher at Kingdom Kids! This will be her 21st year and she has some fun new activities for the classes to experience. She feels blessed to be back in the place that God called her to serve Him! Marianne loves that God has chosen to gift her and use her to work with children, teaching them to praise Him. A foundation to love and serve Jesus can be laid in the lives of children through participating in praise and worship via music. Psalm 89:1 is her scripture inspiration and music class purpose: “I will sing of the goodness and lovingkindness of the LORD forever; with my mouth I will make known Your faithfulness from generation to generation.”
Marianne’s favorite hobbies are gardening, reading, listening to praise and classical music, and traveling Texas with her husband Bill. Their favorite places are Big Bend, Fort Davis, Fredericksburg, and the Texas Coast. They enjoy adventuring the back roads all around Texas.
Marianne and Bill are parents of Lauren and Ryan, both grown and married. They love being “Nonnie and Paw-Paw” to 3 granddaughters and 1 grandson. Lauren and husband Brandon, have two girls, Addie and Caitlynn, and newborn son Eli. Ryan and wife Chelsea are parents to daughter Tabitha, and they are expecting the 5th grandchild, due in March.
