About the Author

Johanna Magdalena Griffiths-Britt

Johanna Magdalena Griffiths-Britt

Born in Switzerland as an only child to a single mother, Hanni had an isolated upbringing living for 17 years in children’s homes.

Her passionate desire to become a person in her own right was fuelled by the immense emotional and intellectual struggles of her early years.

At 18 she committed her life to Jesus Christ, and later qualified as a nurse in Switzerland.

After moving to England, which has become her ‘home’, Hanni trained in midwifery and gained UK Citizenship as well as getting married at age 38. Hanni is now a widow and has one married daughter and 3 grandchildren who live in Switzerland.

Endorsements and Reviews

Chris Ledger

Having known Hanni for many years, she has often spoken about putting pen to paper to share her story, and this book is well worth the read. It is a wonderful, true and inspiring story, illustrating her life journey: from her early years feeling lonely and abandoned whilst living in several children’s homes in Switzerland; the joy of the ‘God-moments’ in her life and how she found the Lord; to the emotional and spiritual struggles she faced in caring for her sick husband.

This is an unforgettable story in which we see Hanni grow from an insecure people-pleaser who felt a nobody, to a mature Christian who learned to be thankful for all God’s blessings and feel a somebody. Reading her story bought tears to my eyes, put a smile on my face and a wonder that we have such an amazing God. I am sure this book, including scripture verses, poems and reflections, will touch your heart like it did mine.

Over many cups of coffee and over a good many years, it has been a privilege to get to know Hanni and learn of her unique and amazing story. General conversation led to and increased in Hanni the desire to write down and share so much of her life with others.

This is a testimony born out of many tears, both of pain and joy. Now we, the readers, can have a glimpse of God’s caring, gentle and guiding Hand throughout all the years of Hanni’s fruitful life.

Read and be amazed!
