Marylois grew up in a small town in Northern California. Education included 1 school year in France during high school, and a B.S. in Dental Hygiene from Loma Linda University, and later M.S. in Nutrition from UC Davis. Always interested in how people learn and maximizing learning abilities, she loved home schooling their 2 children, and later doing independent studies with high schoolers and teaching the church Youth Group. Helping kids understand and become all their Creator and Savior designed them to be is a passion of hers.
That passion has fit well with her journey of friendship and love for Sarah. After encouraging Sarah to train with YWAM, Jon & Marylois were proud of her decision to follow God’s call to Brasov. They continued to cheer her on as the mission grew from spending a few hours loving babies in a state facility to the multi-faceted, life-changing work of FFR as we know it today
