Bio: Maria Laveena was born and raised in Bangalore. Her love for writing and talking enabled her to pursue Master’s Degree in Mass Communications from St Joseph’s College. She started her career with a weekly magazine called ‘Talk’ and then was employed by internationally well-known employers like Thomson Reuters and Practice Strategic Communications. She joined Couples for Christ India in June, 2013. In less than two years, she realized that her life’s joy was in serving the Lord. Thus, she gave up her flourishing career and opted to serve as a Full-time Pastoral Worker with CFCI Singles in April 2015. Her mother and the community are pretty much her world and her only desire is to help people fall in love with God. She enjoys reading, writing, baking and playing her piano in her free time.
