About Us

WholeHearted Women was founded by Marlaina Centeno who saw the need for women to have safe spaces to understand grief, learn how to mourn and lament, and find healing from places of pain. 

 

Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, Marlaina currently lives in New Jersey where her and her husband Josiah are Pastors. They have three kids, Judeah 15, Jordan 12 and Jericho 8.

 

Marlaina's life is a testament for how when you weep with complete brokenness you will laugh with unrestrained joy (Luke 6:21). She laughs loud because she has cried deep. 

Though WholeHearted Women (WHW) was founded in 2020, the ministry of healing from deep wounds of the heart is not new and WHW does not stand alone. We use the Healing the Wounds of Trauma materials from the Trauma Healing Institute. All of the facilitators at WHW are trained and certified by the Trauma Healing Institute, including Marlaina.

We are looking forward to walking alongside you as you take steps on your healing journey!
