Who is Dr. Marla?

Matthew 19:26 is Dr. Marla Woodmansee's motto. She has experienced what seemed to be "impossibilities" in her life, turn around: supernatural healing from a brain tumor, escaping a deadly snake in Zimbabwe, Africa, and overcoming claustrophobia. She proclaims “nothing is impossible with God! God can take what the enemy does for bad, and turn it around for good!”


Dr. Marla was led by the Lord to pursue a master’s degree in theology (M.A.T.S.) at Assembly of God Theological Seminary in 2010, and a doctorate (D.Min.) at United Theological Seminary in 2014, with an emphasis in worldwide evangelism. She studied abroad at Israel’s Jerusalem University.

Dr. Marla grew up in a multi-cultural family, which helps her bring encouragement to people from every background, denomination and race.

She delivers a message of hope that empowers listeners by leading them to the Good News of the Bible that brings peace to the soul, freedom from bondages, and joy everlasting.

Married to Ray, an ER physician, Dr. Marla says, "My husband is involved in the physical healing, and I, the spiritual healing." They serve in their community, Branson, Missouri, and have the most incredible children: Logan, 25; Alexa, 23; Nathan, 17; and Lydia, 14. During her spare time, she loves to jog along a lake, travel with her family, and SCUBA dive in the ocean.

She is president and founder of the not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, Dr. Marla Ministries.
