Welcome to our new website!


Hi, my name is Marianne and I created Message in the Middle while I was going through a bit of a transformation of my own.  Over the last few years, I lost a significant amount of weight, separated from a job and the company I had been with for over 25 years, and started to reclaim my life by finding balance, creating new healthy habits, and remembering (and taking time for) some of the things I love to do, but had not made time for in many years. 


I believe that life is messy, unpredictable, and challenging, but at the same time absolutely beautiful.  I think that we are all very much the same and by sharing and building community, we can weather the storms and celebrate our blessings together.   I think we all have stories to tell, our messes can become our messages and through this community, I hope we can explore life's difficult lessons through book clubs, interviews, and discussions to give us more information, strategies, and tools to help us navigate this crazy thing called life.
