I'm Márcia Trigo, 52 years old, married for 26 years to my love Marcelo and mother of two beautiful and precious young girls, Beatriz and Júlia (21 and 16 years old).
My parents separated when I was 11. At 15 I started working, and at 21 I left São Paulo and moved to Rio de Janeiro. I was the typical woman molded by life to prioritize career, not to "depend on a husband" and to be self-sufficient. I got married at 26 and, of course, I took this attitude into my marriage, even if unconsciously. And as a foolish woman, I almost destroyed my family.
But because the Lord had a story for my life, I was converted, literally rescued by Jesus, and at the age of 36, He began a great work in my life.
It took me a few years of being treated and transformed by Jesus until the day I realized that I needed to stop, leave my career and turn my heart to my home. It was in this context that I came across the wonderful work of Devi Titus. I got the book "Home Experience" from my younger sister and she wisely told me: "Ma, you're going to learn submission to God by learning to be submissive to your husband, God is going to teach you by washing the dishes in your house, cleaning and cooking for your family."
I immersed myself in the book and the principles and without ever imagining it, through the invitation of my ministry partner with another Home Experience mentor, I landed at Tittus Home in 2017 and the moments spent in that house alongside Devi will never be forgotten.
God united me with a group of exceptional women with whom I continue in this ministry to this day.
I remember every glance, Devi's words of instruction, with their softness and firmness in an unparalleled balance, her incomparable way of serving and how much it impacted me. Of Trina's ministrations and testimonies with which I identified. Devi's mother's visit on the last day, her advice and the precious prayer time we had together.
We came back determined to take these principles to all the women the Lord entrusted to us, and especially to those who were less fortunate (in communities, young people in boarding schools, etc.) because the PRINCIPLE is for everyone! All women, all homes, all families, regardless of whether they can afford a beautiful table or a comfortable home.
My life was transformed by the "Home Experience" and its principles. From a woman who didn't even cook for the family because "it was a lot of work", I began to dedicate myself to my family and to love, care for and serve those the Lord entrusted to me: my husband and my daughters.
I am passionate about families, which is why today I work as a women's therapist with an emphasis on relationships and marriage restoration. In addition to the Home Experience, I am an intercession leader for my church, working with deliverance and healing and ministering to the hearts of women wherever the Lord sends me.
My desire is to bring this transformation to as many women as possible and for them, like me, to understand that they can have any career they want, be an entrepreneur or whatever, but that they LOVE taking care of their family, their home and truly living it as their first ministry.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. - Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)
