Storyrope™ Creator Marge Malwitz

About Marge Malwitz, the creator of the storyrope™:

Marge Malwitz is a Connecticut studio artist, illustrator, speaker, teacher-educator, mentor, encourager, international worker & mobilizer. For the last 20 years, she has brought art projects & experiences into faith-based and humanitarian groups on 5 continents. She has trained & mentored others to teach the storyrope™ as well as other creative ways to tell one's story.  In her studio she creates art quilts, painted paper collages, children's picture story books and collaged travel journals. She continues to experiment and try new things in her studio where she also mentors other artists.

From Marge: This blog comes out of time in the studio & on the road, discovering-creating-using-teaching the storyrope™ within the context of the Christian worldview.  Friends will be sharing their experiences as well.

Venues of teaching the blog will share:
Genocide & ethnic cleansing survivors, victims of domestic violence, abused women, the homeless, the elderly, building cross-cultural relationships & others.

Why are our stories important? 
• have unchangeable stuff in them
• enable us to overcome shame
• are what the enemy meant for evil,
• BUT are what God meant for good
• invite God to reveal himself
• are what we know for sure
• are unique, exciting, encouraging
• are urgently needed.
• display God at work in our lives
• are life messages
• are personal & powerful
• lead to belief & worship
• make more sense when older
• will encounter opposition
