2019 Thrive Conference Speaker
The wife of the man who stormed into a one-room Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County, PA, shooting 10 schoolgirls, five of them fatally, will never forget the phone call she got from her husband early that morning.
He said she would never see him again, and she pleaded with him to come home and talk to her, even though she had no idea of the horror he was about to unleash.
The crime stunned the nation, not only because of the brutality against young children, but because it took place in a traditional Christian community whose residents are known for their peaceable ways and avoidance of the modern world.
The gunman was Charles Roberts, a father of three and husband. Roberts, his wife, Marie, and their children lived one mile away from the school.
His then-wife -- who has since remarried -- is now talking about the tragedy that changed so many lives, including her own.
Mark your calendar for the 2019 ABWM Thrive Conference (June 28-29) and hear Marie Monville's incredible story of grace, forgiveness, and hope.
