Marilyn N. Anderes has been a follower of Jesus for over 46 years. Married to John, a retired aerospace engineer, for fifty-two years, she is the mother of three and the grandmother of eight. She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and has taught Bible studies and led seminars and retreats, both nationally and internationally, for the last 37 years.
She has been a contributing editor at Good News Magazine, writing the column “From the Heart” from 1993 to 2008. Articles from her pen have appeared in such periodicals as Decision Magazine and the Navigators Discipleship Journal. She has also authored the following books:
1. A Workshop on Self-Giving
2. The Great Encourager
3. From the Heart of the Word
4. MORE: The Four Dimensions of Intimacy With God (both in English and Korean)
5. The Adventure of Surrender: Living A Fruitful Life
Marilyn is currently working on another book entitled "Eye To Eye". In this work, she examines 13 biblical individuals who have Eye To Eye encounters with God. Each of them went beyond familiarity to intimacy, beyond a mere teaching to a touch and transformation, beyond a “ticket to Heaven” to hearing the divine music now, scorning the tunes of this world for something far better. They began to know God’s will, to see the Righteous One, to hear His voice and to tell others what they had seen and heard. Jesus was no longer a stranger, a mere acquaintance, someone familiar, or even their teacher. He had become the Lover of their souls, their transformer, their Lord, their reason to live.
Currently Marilyn is speaking at a number of venues during the upcoming months:
1) Sister to Sister IV Gathering, St. John's UMC, Seaford, DE, 4/6/19
*Current Teaching Times and Locations
*Marilyn is again teaching at different churches in the DC area during the 2019 winter and spring months. All courses began in January 2019 and run for up to 12 weeks.
