Marie Hartman, CADC, Faith-Based Facilitator Theophostic Prayer Ministry


Over ten years experience in Christian recovery groups, including eight years of leadership in small group ministry at my local church. Over five years facilitating Theophostic Prayer (over 1000 hours of one on one prayer time). Completed all levels of training including Ed Smith’s latest training, Dealing with difficult cases.

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan on July 5, 1963. I graduated from Michigan State in 1986, where I met Bren Hartman. We married on December 28, 1985 during Christmas break.  We have two sons ages 20 and 23, and a daughter-in-law.  We are empty nesters and love it.  Bren and I enjoy spending time together, running the sand dunes with our VW sand rail, and drag racing. I enjoy reading and digging into the Word of God, but still watch an occasional movie or two.

I was raised Catholic, but strayed away from the church.  I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior when I was 26 and have continued to draw closer to Him day by day.  Having learned the Theophostic prayer process, I now allow the Lord to work through me to bring truth to others like he brought truth to me. The Lord brought me to AFR in June of 2009.  I love what I do here at A Forever Recovery. I love to see God’s hand at work all around me.
