My Rahabilitation

A cuddle at anytime
A cuddle at anytime

Oh my, here is a new day, a new me. Am so full of Gratitude and Thanksgiving: Praise my Lord I am holistically Rahabilitated.

If you know the bible story of Rahab, then you’ll get what I mean. I not only felt for the past near 2 decades of my life that I was living like Rahab ( married or not), but I actually took some spiritual quiz which revealed she was the bible personality I reflected. Initially I was so ashamed, very humbled and humiliated some more. I was disgusted at myself and decided gradually I was done with that ‘life’.

It’s taken 5 years and I can say am proud of the work done inside out. Wow, on the 28th of October, at the spiritual retreat I was at, I completed the most critical stage of my Rahabilitation, I wrote it all down and offered it all up as a burnt offering. It was just me and me and my Lord. Hmm, after all this running away I end up with me to rid me of the old me. How Gracious !

I pray for the Grace to always seek to know and do myLord’s will in every circumstances and with total gratitude. His Amazing Grace is all I need; and this I have always received in Abundance. I am ready Lord for the next leg of Rahab’s journey: I am not impatient and am even a little apprehensive but I know I have your back. Amen

I am so tremendously grateful for my mum and sisters, my friends, few but oh so precious, for my dearest e-family and above all for my sons and our cuddle Ella. I could never have walked this healing journey alone.

Wishing us all so so so much, especially those struggling to let go of whatever pain and disgust…




Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.

  1. I didn’t know about Rahab until you wrote about it here.

    I’m SO thrilled that you are ready for the next leg of Rahab’s journey, Lady Marie, and you sound great, you really do.

    I know you’re faced with challenges every day, but there is a light and renewed strength within your words, and I can tell you got so much out of your retreat.

    Sending you love today and every day, my wonderful, beautiful and inspiring friend!!!

    p.s. MEOW to lovely Ella!!!!!!!!!! 😻😽

  2. Let me start my dear captain with accepting your meou to Ella, she is growing and discovering new talents and abilities she never knew she had. I mean it that I am learning so much from Ella and her soif de vivre. And she loves the boys so much she sleeps with them… I already can ramble on and on about her… shout out to Lisa (oops Lucy please forgive the slip oh captain) from Ella
    Now over to me, am glad I made u discover Rahab. She went through stuffs, did stuffs, ans helped spies ans then her salvation. She is actually the mother of Boaz and that’s who am waiting for at the right time definitely 🙂
