Life Lessons Encore: What Marlin Griffith learned from his wife

Life Lessons

Share This

Life is hard, stressful, fast-paced and can sometimes be overwhelming. That’s why is partnering with MorningStar Senior Living of Idaho Falls to bring you Life Lessons.

We’re asking MorningStar residents to share gems of wisdom every Tuesday with us. Some of their answers will make you laugh, some may make you cry, some may even change your life.

With the spread of COVID-19, we are currently unable to interview the wise folks face-to-face at Morningstar so we’re taking a look back at what some in the past have told us.

We first met Marlin Griffith in March. He is 78-years-old and moved to Idaho after his wife died. He served in the military and is the proud father of several children.

Marlin says his life hasn’t been easy and his wife battled mental illness for years. One day he came home from work and she was sitting in the middle of the living room floor. She told him she had been abused as a child and he worked to get her the help she needed.

Marlin has learned a lot in his life. Watch the video above to hear his words of wisdom.
