Joelle Maryn and the Reality of Emotional Homelessness
Gospel Con Carne
To the world it seemed like Joelle Maryn had it all. She was an accomplished model, ran a successful cosmetics company and lived a life of luxury while splitting time between New York and Los Angeles. Joelle contends that she indeed had a lot of 'stuff' - but hers was the stuff of emptiness. Her journey through emotional homelessness led her into the ministry, and she now works with youth and young adults to cultivate spiritual growth in their lives. Joelle's story of grace, redemption and reconciliation is a powerful reminder of what can happen in one's life when they simply stop and turn around.
