Marilyn Nutter loves finding treasures in unexpected places: gratitude in mulch, conversations with grandchildren, and secrets in an old trunk. Most of all she has found the treasure of hope in loss. Unexpectedly widowed after forty-two years of marriage, Lamentations 3: 22-23 has been a brilliant treasure. After a career as a speech-language pathologist, Marilyn pursued writing and is the author of three devotional books, a contributor to compilations, print, and online sites, including Chicken Soup, Refresh Bible study magazine, CBN, Hope-Full Living, and Devotable. She is a speaker for women's and grief support groups. She began married life on a Caribbean island and any beach with splashing waves is still her happy place, especially when shared with her grands.Find her at www.marilynnutter.com and receive blog posts to enrich your day.
