Today’s guest for the podcast is my dear friend, Marcia Moston. She has lived such an amazing life of adventure, from being a hippie and living in a real-life tepee, to moving to Guatemala and becoming a missionary and eventually making her way to South Carolina. Marcia is a wonderful storyteller who shares a tale mixed with heartbreak, humor and hope. She was a good Catholic schoolgirl who entered her adult life seeking truth in all the wrong places, even looking to astronomy and palmistry at one point. But she finally surrendered to God when she hit rock bottom. Her testimony is a story of how God has remained faithful throughout all of her life. Although Marcia isn’t proud of a lot of her past, she says there’s importance in telling our stories because our stories live on in other people. She’s the author of two books based on her life. Her latest book just released titled, Going South: with the God of Jacob’s and My Mistakes. She’s also a fantastic English teacher (ask me how I know!). This is an episode you won’t want to miss.

What a wonderful interview! Such a blend of raw, honest sharing and sincere faith. Marcia’s powerful story clearly shows the beauty of real-life redemption. And her anecdotes are just plain fun to listen to! Thanks for testifying to the power of prayer and a God who is here.
Thanks so much Beth! I had a great time interviewing Marcia! I’m so grateful she was willing to share her story and know God will use it to glorify Himself.
