Your description sounds like you may have an ignition switch that may be going out. You may also take a look at the Park Neutral safety switch. If you can "jiggle" the ignition switch while pushing shift column in park and it starts it very well may be the switch.
Hello Marry-Most likely, the starter solenoid is failing, but this can also be caused by a bad ignition switch. Solenoid failure is the more common cause, so check this first. Hope this helps- thanks Super Girls Auto

I would check the ignition switch. Sounds like a faulty ignition problem. It wouldn*t hurt to check the wiring from the switch to the starter as well. Good luck.

Sounds like the starter...have a diagnostic run on it, the weather is getting too nice not to have that baby running smoothly!
