Marsha’s vision for Amiracle4sure emerged from her own personal experiences. As a child, she witnessed and experienced various levels of abuse. Becoming a young mother without any knowledge of child rearing, she sought for love in all the wrong places. Trapped in an abusive marriage for 10 years she turned to drugs and ended in prison where she served 3 years. Her transformation started on the inside, learning to start with forgiving self and then allowing God to work through the rest, she found solace in knowing the God had a plan for her future. After discovering how to create a map for her own life, she wanted to share her experience and knowledge with individuals with similar life experiences. It has since become her mission to help men and women believe, create, and attain their intended life dreams. She uses mentoring to fulfill this mission, along with ministry, consulting, and speaking opportunities.
