Meet Lady Ree,

Founder Marie Felt


The inception of Mending Vines was inspired by Marie's own unique life's story.  Earlier on in her life she encountered a secret life of emotional and physical abuse.  During this time she endured many obstacles that often left her feeling hopeless. Through those hardships her self esteem began to wither away.  She became isolated and broken. Along that journey, Marie met many others just like her. It was the love and support of others, where she began to discover her inner strength, which rekindled her strong faith in God, and recreated a new start in life. 


Marie is now a proud wife of fourteen years to her amazing husband Calvin, the mother of three beautiful daughters Neka, Kera, Kiersten.  The grandmother of two energetic souls, Manuel and Saniyah. 


Marie is a Author, Minister of the Gospel, Conference Host, Mentor, Inspirational and Motivational Speaker.


Marie is the visionary of Echoes of Encouragement where she has reached many women by assisting them in becoming totally healed, restored and delivered from

their pain to living a life healthy whole and strong with purpose. 

Marie was featured in His Favor Magazine Spring Issue 2018. She also had the humble privilege of sharing the platform with Dr. Gaylena White and Real Talk Kim.


It is through her transparency that has allowed her to reach the hearts and core of broken women. Marie loves God and is a true worshiper from her soul. She relies on her strong faith in God and her powerful intercession of prayer is the heart of what she feels is the vital key to every essence of a woman's new path to life.
