BEL AIR, Md.—“When all other lights go out, He still shines!” This became the anthem to Marie Monville’s life when on October 2, 2006, in Lancaster, Pa., her then husband made a decision to hold an Amish schoolhouse hostage, changing her life as she knew it.

Monville will speak at the Fifth Annual Women’s Conference at Oak Grove Baptist Church on March 21, 2015. Her testimony was forged while moving through unthinkable circumstances, into the unfathomable love of the Father. On her darkest day, Monville simply chose to believe that “HE IS.” The act of faith radically propelled her into a future she could not have hoped for or imagined.

Monville speaks to the truth of God’s love: “It is deep enough to heal any wound, strong enough to break all bondage, and it brings life to the broken and light to those in darkness.”

She says she has found the secret to being “transformed into His likeness with ever increasing glory” (2 Cor 3:18) is by cultivating worship in the deepest places of her heart and releasing it before His throne. She will inspire you to dive deep into a passionate, transformative love relationship with God.
