Hi, my name is Dede Smith.  I met Marisely Marte a little over two years ago, when she was hire as the receptionist for our office.  I quickly knew that there was something different about Marisely and as we got to know each other I felt that we would become good friends.  Well that was an understatement! She is a strong woman of God and I knew we had that in common.  As our business lives grew so did our personal friendship.  Marisely shared with me the reasons that she started “Extraordinary Woman”  as a means to encourage herself and others going through hard times.  Marisely shared her testimony with me and I with her.  She has a powerful testimony and the online community of woman grew by leaps and bounds.

How Marisely impacted by life?  Besides being a good listener she has a huge heart which is full of compassion for others.  I was in a bad place in my life as I had lost the love of my life.  Marisely felt my pain and would help me and encourage me, reminding me that God has plans for me, and that I needed to follow God’s will for my life.  I really didn’t want to do much of anything, I was grieving and depressed.  Anyone who knows Marisely, knows she is a strong-willed individual and will tell you the truth even if it is not what you want to hear.  That is something that I needed at that time in my life.  Marisely is studying to be a life coach and Christian counselor and she will be great at this as I believe this is a calling from God.  I thank God that He put Marisely in my life.  Marisely convinced me to do a 80 day challenge to change my eating habits and exercise.  Well that is not what I really wanted to do, I was making excuses like I’m out of shape, I’m too old to do exercise (especially Beach body On Demand), I was set in my ways.  Well the word “NO” is not in Marisely’s vocabulary!  She did not want to hear my excuses and pushed me to do this challenge.  I accepted the challenge and I am still able to walk,  it didn’t kill me and I am more determined than ever to finish this challenge.  She has changed my thought process and like in more ways than she will ever know.

I know that God has big plans for Marisely’s life and I am thankful for our friendship and that God’s has placed us in each others lives.
