What Others Say


My friend Marlene is a truly caring and inspiring person. She came alongside me in a very dark season when I could not see the light of day, and helped me to see the power within myself. She helped me to begin to take my focus off of darkness and transfer it to the light. She was not afraid to kindly ask the hard questions she knew would ultimately give me the strength to rise up out of the ashes of defeat and to begin to walk courageously on my own two feet.

Marlene has results! She can guide and teach from a perspective of having walked through it before me. Marlene has walked me through some challenging times in parenting, health, changing negative thought patterns, as well as just being a friend who I can laugh with. I would hire her because she pushes me to be better, pushes me to reach my goals and to stay on track to get where I already said I wanted to go. Her coaching is based on what YOU want to accomplish and how much accountability you want.

Meet the Overweight, Overwhelmed, Depressed Mom of four with cancer, turned speaker and highly sought after Personal coach
- Marlene Horst

Marlene Horst grew up in a violently abusive home, with endless chaos, fear, and confusion. Molested from an early age, she learned to survive with sheer determination, and hard work.

Sheer determination and hard work was, however, not enough to heal the brokenness she found herself in later in life as a married woman with four littles. She found herself overweight, depressed, and caught in endless cycles of repeating and reliving her traumatic childhood. Then came the final slap in the face, a potentially terminal cancer diagnosis.

From Pain & Defeat to Peace & Freedom

It was at that moment, Marlene knew something had to change. This time her gifts of determination and hard work became the catalyst for something far greater - complete spiritual, emotional and physical healing from the inside out.

She began the tedious work of uncovering the lies and trauma that had been holding her hostage. She invested hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars learning about herself and her body. She discovered as she healed emotionally and spiritually, her body started healing too. 

But something was still missing. Even after thousands of dollars invested in seminars and counselling, she was still unable to consistently stay on track. It was there, the simple strategies behind the "Back to the Well" personal coaching program was birthed, along with a passion for sharing the keys she found with other women who found themselves stuck.

Today, Marlene is 100% cancer free, more happily married than ever, and has gone on to coach and mentor dozens of clients and share her story to thousands of women on stages across the country.

Final Note...

You might know me from "Back to the Well" coaching, or you may have heard me speaking on a stage, or even singing in our family band. But who am I in every day life? Please allow me to introduce myself!

I am Marlene Horst. I've been married to an amazing, strong and steady husband, Jesse, for over twenty-two years. We have four beautiful children, all in their teens or twenties. When we're not traveling the country on some adventure, we call a very special spot in the steep hills of West Virginia, our home.

My very favorite things are taking nature walks, motorcycle rides with my husband, and powerful uplifting conversations with my family and friends.

I'd love to connect with you personally on my social media and get to know you better. Please join me and introduce yourself!

It is my sincerest hope, that you can take the keys and tools that I have learned as a cancer and childhood trauma survivor, and use them as a shortcut to the life you truly want to live!
