Marilyn Randle is absolutely in love with words. A Texas native, her inspiration comes daily through her roles as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend, as well as through deep affection for her hometown of Fort Worth.
In 1982, after living on both coasts, she married her husband Gary and returned to Texas to start a family. For more than two decades, she and Gary have partnered in ministry. They have one adult daughter, Gabrielle.
Marilyn is passionate about travel and has spent most of her adult life seeing the world. She is equally passionate about mentoring. She considers it a privilege to be able to speak into the lives of women. And if hospitality is a hallmark of southern living, then Marilyn just might be the gold standard. To her, it’s second nature. To friends, a comfortable afternoon spent at her Arlington home is a rich experience, like getting a beautifully wrapped gift box filled with great memories and new traditions to take with you and enjoy for a lifetime.
