The fourteenth child from a family of seventeen children, Maria was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia.
Although older siblings recall times of hardship the younger children were well educated and wanted for nothing.
Over the years Maria travelled the world on a constant search for meaning, truth and purpose. At the age of twenty-six Maria settled in her home town of Perth and it was here that she had an overwhelming encounter with Jesus Christ. Her search was over. He changed her life forever.
