"A fire nearly took my life. Another fire saved it."
Joelle Maryn is an award-winning Actress, Speaker, 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 experienced spiritual amnesia, losing her identity in the aftermath of the tragedy that shook her family to the core.
She went on to find worldly success, modeling for well-known brands such as Jergens, having a billboard in Times Square, and being the former Host of ABC’s “Trend TV.”
Joelle also developed a luxury line of anti-aging makeup that was featured on NBC and in Vanity Fair. Despite all this, she realized her life was spiritually empty and joyless.
Then, after a dream come true trip to Hollywood, Joelle had a miraculous encounter with Jesus that changed everything. She saw her life and the weight of her sins flash before her eyes. She saw that we are judged on love and that her good column, the column to love and use the gifts that God gave her to help others, was almost shockingly empty.
The agony of this awareness and her encounter with God’s mercy led Joelle to turn her life around. 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, empowering others to walk with God to rediscover joy and purpose in their lives.
