Welcome to my website

Hi all. I'm Mariann

Thank you for visiting my website. Now let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I grew up in sunny South Africa, now living in the United Kingdom.

I am the eldest of 3 surviving siblings, mom of 2 young adults and aunt to my nieces and nephews.

I love writing and helping people realise their true potential and worth, especialy women. Knowing who we are is so important in a world where other voices shout loud trying to influence and tell us who we are. We are unique, we are loved and we are chosen by God. Our identity is in Christ alone. There is no greater freedom than knowing your purpose,  your self-worth and  your identity.

My first book "Broken And Made Whole" is a glimpse into  my life, recounting my experiences with abuse and rejection, shedding light  on how my Christian journey through faith healed me and my triumph to wholeness.
