Words

I write about what matters to me and my hope is these words find a place in your heart and encourage you to do the same.

Insert Job Title Here

So much of who we are is based around what we do, what occupation we hold. Although it’s often the conversation starter we turn to in social settings when meeting new people, I have to wonder if maybe it’s the one question that makes people feel the most unseen. I have to think maybe by asking people to define themselves by what they do, we are missing the entire person, entirely.

Who is Marah?

It is a new era for MarahCAR with exciting things on the horizon and in the same way, it is a new era for me personally.

Two.

Two years ago, I left the only state (Kentucky) I'd ever really known and started a new life in Atlanta, Georgia. Before I go into my time here, what I've learned, and the amazing people I've met, I need you to know this was not a well thought-out decision or a planned move with a lot of cushion in the bank. It was honestly more of a desperate need for a change. I needed to get away. Not from a person or even necessarily the place, but I needed a change in my daily routine. I was bored. I wasn't feeling challenged or scared or uncomfortable and at 22 years old, I saw something wrong in that.
