About Beth Marshall
Beth Marshall is a Christian author and speaker. Her journey through grief began with the shocking death of her best friend, her mom. A year later, and as a result of the tragedies of 9/11 she wrote A Time to Heal, a grief journal. The purpose was to use her experience of writing through a time of deep sorrow to help people who had lost loved ones.
Marshall’s book has taken an unexpected path including being a resource at the Army Chaplain’s office at the Pentagon shortly after 9/11. Recently her book was translated into Japanese and is available for pastors serving Tsunami survivors in Japan.
In addition to speaking and sharing her story of healing and hope, she spends as much time as possible with her husband Paul, their three grown children and families.
