“I came to Maria in a broken state, with many misconceptions about God’s view of me, and about my relationship with God. Maria’s faith and guidance has helped me to begin to let go of my fears and the false notions of who I thought I was. The Holy Spirit flows through her and I never leave without some more insight into God’s unfailing love.

Who is Maria?

Relentless Follower of Christ

My name is Maria and let me be the first to welcome you to The Deeper Connection. As an Ordained Minister through the Federation of Christian Ministries, I am committed to honoring and revering the Spirit in all celebrations of life, from officiating weddings, funerals and christenings to ministering to the infirm, terminally ill as well as families and friends.

I would love the opportunity to share my unique gifts for your special event and minister the grace and peace of God during your important lifetime moments. Together, let’s make them truly immersive and create the sublime space to be wholly present in the Spirit of God. 

“Spiritual direction with Maria has helped me tremendously with the anxiety, fears and thoughts racing through my mind that I was struggling with. She has taught me new techniques for when these emotions hit again and I have not felt such peace in my heart and mind in a long time. It has been such a blessing and I thank God for the healing.”
