AUTHOR, TRAINER, COACH, LOVE ADVOCATE
Marci Moore, writer, certified coach, trainer and lifelong change agent, shows up to work with a lot more than skill in her tool kit. Simply put, Moore believes we transform the world when we SHOW UP WITH LOVE in every area of our lives. This single change of heart positively impacts our relationships with friends, family and neighbors, our community, our work environments and the larger world.
Why Marci does this work:
My parents, a nurse and a Southern Baptist preacher, groomed us for love early on. As one of five children, I learned plenty about sharing and giving and loving. Even though we lived on next to nothing, we saved our pennies for special offerings and routinely gave away our toys and clothing to families who had even less than us. At dinner, we prayed for missionaries around the world. And throughout my life various experiences and teachers have shown me what it means to love. When we show up with love in every area of our lives, no matter how messy, inconvenient or challenging it might be, together we can transform the world. We might not always get it right. That’s what do-overs are for. We’ve all made our share of mistakes, but when we choose love as our guiding principle, the world is an infinitely better place.
I’ve been writing since I first understood words could be strung together like colorful beads on a necklace, making meaning of life, telling stories and encouraging others. In fifth grade, I wrote, cast and directed a play. At twelve, with my Dad’s encouragement, I started, edited and produced a neighborhood newspaper called Justice. The tag line? “Where else can you get justice for a nickel?” In my teens I wrote stories and poetry that were published in my local newspaper and college magazine.
Writing was my future until the perfect storm hit: my youthful lack of self confidence and the heartless scrawl of a college creative writing teacher atop an assignment. It was another seventeen years before I had the courage to share something I’d written with another human being. Since then, I’ve been blessed with teachers and mentors who have encouraged me to share my words with the world. It is because of their loving support that you found me here, using my words to inspire others to find their own unique ways to show up with love.
Pam Williams, ACC
TRAINER, COACH, LOVE ADVOCATE, OCCASIONAL MUSE
When Marci decided to show her writing to someone after 17 years of keeping it hidden away, Pam was the person who was lucky enough to see it. 18 years later she is still Marci's biggest cheerleader, and the Chief Encouragement Officer at Show Up with Love. Having survived moving 17 times between the 3rd grade and graduation by making new friends wherever she landed, she is also the official extrovert! She is passionate about sharing tips and ideas for creating stronger, healthier personal and professional relationships.
Marci and Pam each have specialized training from the Relationship Coaching Institute, the Center for Conflict Dynamics and Interpersonal Communications Programs. They are certified trainers for the Conflict Dynamics Profile and Becoming Conflict Competent.
More important than their training and certifications is the fact that they have worked together for more than 23 years. After all this time, they still REALLY LIKE each other, so they have a little wisdom to impart about successful relationships.
They have facilitated programs for the American Society of Association Executives, the National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds, the Center for American Nurses, the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence and many other organizations around the country.
Although Marci has since given up swimming with alligators, she has never lost her sense of adventure.
Today she and Pam can frequently be found riding their tandem recumbent bicycle along the Pinellas Trail and beyond.
