Meet the Founder

Marcie Stokman is the founder and president of the Well-Read Mom, an international movement and book club. With a passion for reading and motherhood, she writes and speaks to encourage women in a world of rising isolation, loneliness, and mental health issues.  Marcie has a Bachelor of Nursing degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and a Master's degree in Psychology from the Adler Institute in Chicago.

As a homeschool mom for 25 years, Marcie co-founded a classical co-op for high school students, bringing families together to support each other in their vision for excellence in education and seeking truth, beauty, and goodness through the Western classical tradition.  Marcie and her husband have seven children and 11 grandchildren and reside in Crosby, MN.  


“I think the Lord uses literature in our lives to help us with places we are stuck. A book that has stood the test of time says something that’s true to the human experience. It helps us to see, it educates us, and it helps us move toward holiness.”

- Marcie Stokman, Well-Read Mom Founder

"I am so thankful for your saying "yes" to this desire to accompany women to read and read well. I am learning so much about myself reading these books I would never choose or wouldn't dare pick up on my own. Plus, I've never been in a "book club" that actually desired to discuss the book from the perspective of really sharing about one's life and desire to grow as a person while reading"  Angie, Well-Read Mom member


"Well-read mom takes the guesswork out of what to read and shares tips to make reading possible - even when the kids are young.” - Lisa, Well-Read Mom member

Joining WRM was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. It brings me so much joy to read and discuss the books every month. When not reading here, I try to sit in silence and allow the Holy Spirit to present thoughts and ideas for contemplation. It has become one of the favorite parts of my day. -  Jenn Pollock

Well-Read Mom has become an invaluable community for our group to share our concerns, lives and dreams. In turn, we have been made better wives, mothers and women. - Laura Melius
