Delightfully Humorous Reading With an Important Message for Twentieth-Century Christian Women.
"I was lying in bed reading my Bible and eating a large bowl of popcorn, trying not to get grease stains on the pages when I found a description of the 'woman of all women.' My husband's snores and relaxed face assured me that I was not bothering him with the light, so I read on - "
Thus begins the author's quest toward patterning her life after the woman "far above rubies" the administrator, seamstress, and chef par excellence, the one whose children blessed her and whose husband praised her.
Becoming "a virtuous woman" from the inside out!

Unlike some, she has not lost her sense of humor. Her third book, The Assertive Woman and Other Anomalies, takes a lighthearted look at the anxieties and insecurities of married life, and gently uncovers the hidden attitudes that produce these feelings.
Having been a "working mother" working both inside and outside the home, that is Marsha is well qualified to assess the challenges that come from having to juggle both career and family.

Later she went on to work in various branches of writing, including journalism and freelance writing. In addition to her writing, this mother of three boys teaches writing courses for the Capilano College Extension Program. She has been published in a number of Christian magazines, including Charisma, Virtue, and The Christian Writer.
