Marcie’s story begins in Guatemala, where she was stunned at how beautiful and simple village community was. She realized that we in the west are starved of this aspect of human thriving. Years later, her daughter begged for a like-minded community, hungry to think deeper and harder about bigger questions in life. So Marcie founded ‘Well Read Mom’, a program to network women together for in-person reading groups!
