As a child Marja was fascinated by authors who divided their time between two countries. Today, she is one of them! She and husband Jan divided their time between Holland and Southern California for many years. Jan used to work as a race car technician in off-road racing and while Marja picked up writing books and blogs. They are currently back in their homeland Holland.
A life of traveling and adventure took them all over the world. They visited countries like Nepal, India and Malaysia in the Far East but also Bolivia, Peru and Chili in South America. Although their love for traveling has not subsided, their spiritual journey took on a whole new meaning when they experienced the love and grace of their Creator. They are the founders of the Holland-based non profit organisation Traveling Light. Their organisation seeks to offer practical help, financial support and spiritual encouragement to ministries in need all over Europe and the Middle East.
