Created to Create
Leading with Creativity
I've always been a creative. I was working toward a career in the arts when Jesus called me into full time ministry.
I love musical theater, playing guitar and piano, Irish dancing and clog dancing, and Shakespeare. You can also spot me in several tv shows and films made in Georgia.
Writing is one of my greatest passions—I knew that from the time I was in kindergarten. Growing up, I'd spend my time writing poetry, plays, and fictional short stories. It's amazing to let the Lord use my love for writing and my prophetic gift to encourage others now through social media.
After dreaming about it for years, I finally created a prophetic jewelry line, Prophetic Promises, to encourage others and raise funds for ministry. You can learn more about the next jewelry fundraiser here.
I am loving discovering how to use my creativity more and more as an expression of the ministry God has called me to!
When I'm not talking about Jesus, you might find me playing banana grams with friends, onstage in a Shakespeare play, or writing at a local coffee shop.

Hi, I'm Mariel
All of God's promises are yes & amen
I am here to encourage you to lean into the Lord's voice for your life—to follow his pathway to your prophetic promises.
Though the journey can get lonely, tough, and long, the process is so worth the promise fulfilled.
Jesus is worthy of our every"yes" we give to follow him on this wild, wonderful, weighty and often whimsical prophetic journey.
I'm a passionate encourager, speaker, latte enthusiast, dog mom and writer. After graduating from college, I took a leap of faith to attend Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA. An Atlanta native, I returned to Georgia after finishing school to answer God's call to
"Spread revival fire across the southeast of America."
What a journey it has been!
Since that time, I have traveled around the United States, Canada, and overseas to share the love of God and teach others how to hear His voice and deepen their relationship with Jesus.
Through my ministry, the Embolden Co., I now hold monthly mentorships and trainings for women and men all over the world to help people develop their spiritual gifts and hear God for their lives and the world around them.
While we have an emphasis of training on the prophetic gift with a strong biblical foundation, our ultimate goal is to see Jesus bring revival to the nations and raise up leaders to fulfill the great commission.
Our prophetic programs have now raised up men and women in 39 different states and 22 countries! Praise God!
But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them,
and comforts them.
1 Corinthians 14:3
In July 2021, Mariel founded The Embolden Company, a 501c3 ministry dedicated to bringing revival to the nations.
Mariel graduated with a BFA in theater and a three-year ministry school certificate of completion. She is a legally ordained minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
She made her acting television debut on Sid Roth's It's Supernatural in 2017, a dream she had in high school. You can also spot her in several television shows and films made in the Atlanta area.
She has led prophetic trainings across the U.S. in such places as Catch the Fire Toronto, Morningstar Ministries, and more with Take the City for evangelism conferences.
She served as a writer for Doug Addison at InLight Connection from 2021-2022, and she is a current member of Patricia King's Women in Ministry Network.
Her writing is published in Increase, a publication documenting supernatural testimonies of Jesus transforming lives. Her prophetic words have been featured in such publications as the Elijah List.
She is currently working on writing her first book.
Her most notable achievement is knowing Jesus as a friend.
He is the treasure in the field, and He is preparing His bride from every nation, tribe and tongue.
