Advent Starts…Tomorrow

Welcome to the 2021 Marble Women’s Ministry Advent Blog.  Start lighting the candles, tomorrow is the start of the Advent Season.  

In our eighth Advent Season with an online blog, the Marble Women’s Ministry focuses on God’s promise of hope. 

The Amaryllis, a flower which blooms in December, is a metaphor for hope. One must wait and be patient as hope is something worth waiting for, just as Advent asks us to wait for the birth of Christ or as we wait for the Amaryllis to bloom.

As a simple routine for the Advent Season, wake up each morning to an inspiring story of hope with each Advent blog post. It may just provide us all the courage to move forward and step out into the darkness of our world as kinder, more inspirational Christians.

While the Marble Women’s Ministry sponsors the Advent blog, the inspiration is geared for all who need to start the day with hope. (Sign-up for daily motivation delivered to your inbox by clicking “Follow.”)

When you wake up on Christmas morning this year, how will you be different? 

Advent is a season of transformation, but only if you let the spirit of Advent in your life. 

Marcie Doll, Elder, Marble Collegiate Church and Curator of the Marble Women’s Ministry Blog

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
