I (Anna) was born in New Zealand, but spent almost six years of my childhood in Germany, with my missionary parents and 5 siblings. Married to my Dutchie, I have been living in the Netherlands since 2003, with a year back “home” in New Zealand in 2006. We have two children, 6 and almost 9 years old. Since the onset of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in 2015, I have rediscovered my childhood passions of writing and worship music.

I love learning and teaching, hence my three university degrees. But now, rather than teaching high school pupils English language and literature, I am rediscovering the joy of penning my own poems and sharing my love of writing and worship music with our girls and my friends around the world.

The photo of me here was taken at a Rend Collective concert in Amsterdam, where tears streamed down my face, as God revealed His love and compassion for me in such an intimate way. My prayer is that God will touch your heart in a similar way here at Flaming Abundance. Welcome!
