Mari Pablo is a proud Hispanic and cradle Catholic whose life was wrecked in the best way possible when she finally decided to stop fighting and surrender it all to Him. She has degrees in theology and psychology from both the Franciscan University of Steubenville and the Augustine Institute. She has been working in youth ministry for more than 15 years, including her service as a youth minister in New Orleans and currently as the campus minister at her alma mater in Miami. Mari’s goal is to be an instrument of the Lord and to encourage others to keep striving and never settle. She recently worked with Ascension Press in “The 99” and “YOU: Theology of the Body” program for teens, and she is a speaker for the Steubenville Youth Conferences. Mari has a deep love for food but an even greater love for Christ and is dedicated to helping others encounter Him.
