On Martha's Barn: Drawing on the inspiration of early Baha'i Martha Root

I am happy to pass on news of this wonderful endeaver promoting the ideals of Martha Root. -gw

Hi George,

Martha Root has inspired countless individuals to live lives of deep religious faith and audacious conviction. For more than a decade, her childhood home has been the site of a rebirth of activity bringing people together to honor her life, promote arts and education and help future generations.

Recent efforts have been centered around and devoted to the restoration of Martha's Barn, promoting the ideals of Martha Root and the creative arts. It is time to proceed with the next phase in the development of the Barn and the MRRM, a non-profit 501 c3. To help focus those efforts, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new website,

The Martha's Barn website highlights the barn restoration efforts, the life of Martha Root and the MRRM Foundation's mission. It also offers visitors an opportunity to help with the titan task ahead: to finish the barn restoration and proceed with the mission to promote education in the arts and encourage non-violent conflict resolution training and use.

Please spread the word, post info on your Blogsite and encourage your friends to visit the website and register for eBlasts and eNewsletters. The website, by design, is organic and will be updated frequently, so you are invited to visit often. We welcome your comments and input.

We humbly ask for your encouragement and support.

Warm Regards,
Teresa Pettersen
