About Ann-Maria

Ann-Maria Benton (aka the #TruthTeacher) is an ordained Reverend, entrepreneur, best-selling author, transformational speaker, and mentor. A former radio host and a gifted communicator, Ann-Maria combines the truth of God’s Word, humor, and transparent testimonies to create an atmosphere for authentic and life-transforming encounters. Standing firm on John 8:32, she believes that knowing the truth unleashes freedom, and freedom gives birth to one’s full potential.   

Born in Antigua, West Indies, Ann-Maria is happily married to her soul mate, Willie, and is the proud mom of three adult sons and two beautiful grandkids.
