Joelle Maryn is a Speaker, Actress and TV Host. With over 20 years of experience in public speaking and performing arts, Joelle shares her message of God's healing love which has radiated hope and purpose in life to many around the world.
After losing her sister in a house fire as a child, Joelle Maryn experienced spiritual amnesia, losing her identity in the aftermath of the tragedy that shook her family to the core. Despite going on to find worldly success, modeling for well-known brands such as Jergens, having a billboard in Times Square, being the former Host of ABC-5’s “Trend TV,” and developing a luxury line of anti-aging makeup featured on NBC and in Vanity fair, she realized her life was spiritually empty and joyless. In 2012, Joelle had a major encounter with Jesus and in His mercy, was given another chance to love and lead others to Him. The fire of God illuminated her true identity and enabled her to walk in the newfound power of knowing that she had a deeper purpose.
Joelle now shares her message of healing around the world as a speaker, empowering others to walk with God to rediscover joy and purpose in their lives. She holds a certification in the “Catechesis on Human Love” and has four years of formation as a Secular Carmelite. Joelle speaks nationally at conferences, retreats, youth groups, men and women conferences, parish missions, schools and universities. Her speeches and projects center on Faith, Healing, Spiritual Warfare, Relationships, Identity and Discerning God's Will. Harnessing the power of media to evangelize, Joelle also engages in virtual events, faith-based inspirational and catechetical films, TV shows and other on-camera projects to lead others closer to Christ. Joelle is the executive producer, co-writer and starring actress in the new film “Fully Known" which releases this Fall.

MESSENGER OF GOD'S LOVE (Witness Presentation):
Have you ever felt lost, alone, unsure of who you are, why you're here and what God's plan is for your life? Do you want to be happy? Do you want to be healed? As an actress, model and cosmetics company CEO, it looked like Joelle had it all. She shares her beauty from ashes story and how she hit a spiritual rock bottom during a dream come true trip to Hollywood. Shortly after she had a major encounter with Jesus and has been given another chance to love and lead others to Him. Joelle is a witnes to God's mercy and encourages her audience to become true disciples of Christ. This can only be done through a deep relationship with Him and being firmly rooted in our identity as children of God. We are then led with our hearts on fire to serve and lead others to Him. We are all longing for belonging and purpose. Jesus is "The Way, The Truth, and The Life."
SPIRITUAL WARFARE & HEALING - SET FREE TO TRULY LIVE:
Do you know who your daddy is? We need to recognize and discern the spiritual realities we face and learn how to reject the attacks of the enemy and live in the light and truth of God's Love. Journey through the desert with us as we cross over to the promised land with our "Abba". Learn about the power of the name of Jesus and embrace your God-given spiritual armor and weapons of warfare. Be set free in the power of God's love and majesty.
REAL LOVE - REAL LIFE: THE HEALING POWER OF LOVE:
Discover the truth of your sexuality and what you were created for. With the discord in the world, it's easy to lose sight of the truth of who we are in Christ. Whether you are struggling with poor self-image, sexual addictions or just want to learn more about Theology of the Body - this talk is truth & healing. "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free". John 8:32 (Joelle holds a certification in the "Catechesis on Human Love" and speaks in-depth on these difficult topics).
TRUE BEAUTY - BEAUTY FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
On the outside, it seemed as if Joelle had it all. She was a model, actress and CEO but inside she felt empty and unfulfilled. Joelle discusses true beauty and the challenges and distortions that the world presents. She uncovers the common lies of the enemy that chip away at our self-esteem and worth. We are called to be "Hot" not by worldly standards but by Godly standards and we only have one true judge.
MAN OF GOD - BRAVE HEART
In addition to women conferences, Joelle has ministered to many men and has compassion for their struggles. Misunderstandings and miscommunication can cause great pain. Men are called to be hero's and many times end up the villains because they don't know what to do with their desires. Many men have thanked Joelle for speaking truth with love and giving them hope for a future. (Joelle has her certification in the Catechesis on Human Love and teaches the certification classes for the Diocese of Austin.)
DISCERNMENT OF SPIRITS - DISCERNING GOD'S WILL
St. Ignatius of Loyola has left a great blessing to the church. Through his 14 rules of discernment and discerning the movements in the mind and heart one can begin to understand God's will and purpose for their life. The rules also teach us to recognize spiritual warfare and to learn to reject the attacks of the enemy and live in the truth of God's love even in times when we feel desolate and He feels distant. This is an in-depth study and is best planned for a full day or weekend retreat.
