There is LIFE After Death Workshop (Living in Widowhood)

How do you go on living when your husband is taken from you and you wish you could die yourself? Your life will never be the same; but God is the God of all comfort and wants us to live our life abundantly; even during the grieving process. (John 10:10 is the theme verse)
This workshop is not just for those who are already widows, but for those who would like to be able to minister to them or even receive helpful information for that day when they may join those ranks…because we never know when that loved one may be taken from us. The principles used in this workshop can apply to any loss one may suffer.

Marlene Burling is available to speak to individual churches or combined churches for special meetings or for a special ladies morning/evening fellowship—even on other topics. She may be contacted through her e-mail address.

Morning Walks with God

Author Marlene Burling’s Morning Walks with God is an inspirational, yet practical, read that would benefit any Christian’s life greatly.  Filled with small daily devotionals, one for every day of the year, it is a great introduction to truly live each day “walking with God” and the peace it brings.

A Daily Walk with God

A Christian writer offers her wisdom in the form of daily discourses. Her observations and advice center around the theme of taking a walk each day in which we try to see God’s purpose for us that day and in all the time we have on this earth.

Editorial Reviews

Marlene Burling has taken simple everyday experiences, objects, and Bible stories and written spiritual applications for daily encouragement. The Lord has helped her to see Him even in the smallest details of life as she walks with Him throughout the day. God has used these spiritual lessons in her life as part of the healing in her own grieving process after the loss of her husband, James Autry. They were married for fifty-one years. Her husband was a pastor for thirty-five years, and she faithfully served the Lord by his side in the four churches where God called them to serve. She has three married children, ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren
