IANDS Utah Meeting for Friday, March 24th, 2017

Marlena Tumlin will be our speaker for March 24,2017. At the age of 23 pregnant with her second child, Marlena had traveled to Boulder Colorado to be with her mother during the period her husband was traveling for work.
Marlena unexpectedly went into labor and was admitted to the small Community Hospital in Boulder Colorado. Once in her room, she was examined by the Nurse who felt that it was unnecessary to call the doctor, as it was late evening and she did not feel Marlena would be delivering before morning. Marlena was then left alone in a room. Soon she was experiencing coldness, pain and spasms.
As time passed Marlena’s pain, uncontrollable spasms and fear grew; alone and unable to contact anyone. Soon Marlena was at a point that the pain and fear consumed her. She was pleading for relief from the pain and the fear of being alone. Suddenly Marlena found herself separated from her body, initially thinking she had died. Then Marlena had an experience that transformed her Life forever.
Marlena was given a gift that helped her overcome not only the pain and fear she was enduring, but has helped her confront her fears, and many losses throughout her life.
The experience was transformative in all areas of her life. Providing her with a strong and unwavering faith, strength, comfort, and the ability to share these gifts with others.
Earning a MS degree in education and counseling, Marlena’s life has been devoted to the service of others. Working as an educator, counselor and trainer in both formal education and hospice care. She has provided Love, Comfort and understanding to both dying children and adults, as well as invaluable training to other educators and counselors.

  1. Hi. These notices are showing up the day after the talks. Can that be corrected so I receive the notices a few days before the speakers so I can make plans to attend your wonderful meetings.
    Thank you.

    • IANDS Utah says:

      Dear Lynne: You do know that each meeting will be on the fourth Friday of every month at 7pm (except December), so you can make plans to attend even if I don’t have the notice posted or even if Craig has not emailed the notice yet. Generally I make the blog post as soon as I receive the notice, which can vary from a week before the event to the day of the event. We are all human, though, and sometimes we are sick, or out of town for business, and a delay is unavoidable. Our organization is all-volunteer and we are doing the best we can. Thanks for your understanding. 🙂
