If you clean your room you can go to Europe!

If you clean your room you can go to Europe!

When my son Colt was about to graduate from TCC he asked me if he could go to Europe…
I said, “You can’t even clean your room…how can you go to Europe?”

His reply, “If I clean my room can I go to Europe?”

“It is a deal,” thinking I had won this bet!”

He drove up in our driveway the same time I did, a few weeks later. He was belly laughing while he got out of his car and asked me if I had called his Logic’s Class professor?

I said, “No, why?”

His reply, “Today, I looked like an idiot on our pop quiz when I drew out a slip of paper with the statement on it for me to defend whether or not it was logical or illogical.  The statement read,  “If you clean your room you can go to Europe! I had to argue why this was a logical statement!”

Now I am the one belly laughing and telling my nineteen year old, “Yes son, I think you just heard from God!” #Teenagers think they know everything!



A little About Marlene Marlene was raised in Sanford, Florida, the daughter of a 12th generation farmer and part Cherokee mother. Marlene first met Jesus at the tender age of six sitting in an orange tree in her backyard. This was when she first felt the Holy Spirit speaking to her about going to different nations and sharing the love and resurrection power of Jesus to others. She is mother to four sons, three grandchildren, and has many spiritual sons and daughters. Isaiah 54 is her life chapter. It was from that scripture God gave her two specific promises about her physical children, "All your children will be taught of the Lord and have great peace.”(Isaiah 54:13) and, “Your decendents will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” (Isaiah 54:3) Marlene follows the leading of the Lord and goes wherever and by whatever means God guides and provides. She ministers in meetings, retreats, slums, villages, churches and alongside others who are also called to share the good news, pray for the sick and hurting. She has a heart to equip and train the latter day church helping them to prepare for the harvest that is ripe. She is a mother and father to those who are broken, hurting and orphaned. This could be across the street or across the world. It could be in the jailhouse, at someone’s penthouse or simply a backyard BBQ. Wherever she is, her desire is to minister bringing hope and healing. She has a heart for the lost, backslidden and broken and Her desire is to love and know the Lord fully and unconditionally always growing in His grace, wisdom, and mercy; becoming the Lord's perfect bride, without spot or wrinkle. God created us to be beautiful. She wants you to know His love and become God’s treasure in and on the earth, maturing and growing to help others find their identity and place and to finish the race well. God searches today for those who will make Him their single desire, who will say with the Psalmist and King David that, “the Lord is the portion of mine inheritance” (Psalm 16:5). They will be His special possession because, “the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure” (Psalm 135:4). 850-661-6104 24/7 Prayer CinderellaReleased.Me Webpage
