5 Things About Me
I am a believer.
I am a work-at-home mother, full-time for a financial company.
I am an introverted mom.
I migrated to Canada from the Philippines with my family in 2018.
I appreciate listening to audiobooks and podcasts while doing house chores and caring for my family.
Hi, I’m Marianne!
I’m so glad to meet you.
I started Finding Joy with Less to stay motivated on our financial freedom journey as a family through frugal living and living with less clutter and noise amid the saturated online era.
Having been raised by a solo parent with five kids and being a former single mom to my daughter, I have first-hand experience with how challenging it was to live on a single income. By God’s grace, my mom instilled resilience in us and find joy regardless of our wealth or lack thereof.
Fast forward to today; I am now raising a toddler and a teenager with the help of my wonderful husband, Harry.
Through a mix of frugal tips, financial education, and sharing our debt-free journey as a family, I hope to help you discover joy and a greater appreciation for life.
I also want to encourage you – if you have failed to achieve what you thought was your dream – it is OKAY to start over and build a new life by unlocking your potential with your God-given gifts and talents and use that to your advantage to gain financial freedom.
