Mari W. Gauthier...
A survivor of serious trials and struggles is today known as "The OverComer"! Overcoming and Coming Out Strong is not just her testimony. Overcoming and Coming Out strong is what makes her well qualified and anointed to be the woman she is today; A Prophet to the Nations, Ordained Pastor, Dynamic Speaker, Kingdom Counselor and Community Activist fighting for girls and women who are victims of abuse and crime.
Born to Haitian parents Jean and the late Anicie Gauthier in Miami, FL, Mari was raised in church and actively served as a youth leader, choir member and a young community activist. She developed an interest in helping and speaking for others during the times as a co-host in 1998 on 1450 AM talk show, Generation On A Mission in Miami. Mari later moved to Atlanta to complete her studies after becoming a single mom at 17 to Isaiah Gene Gauthier, who is her motivation and inspiration. Becoming a mother was a part of her process to groom, mature and equip Mari for ministry. While going through what she calls “God’s process”, Mari was determined not to let her life struggles pull her down and determined to help other girls and young women. In September 2005, her strong determination opened doors for Mari to become CEO and Founder of G.R.A.B., Inc. (Girls Receiving Abundant Blessings) 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to serving and helping girls, teens and young women. G.R.A.B has served over 3,000 girls since it's existence.
