February Testimony: Maria Toto


22 years ago, Maria Toto lost her father to a sudden heart attack. We know what you’re thinking: she doesn’t even look old enough to have lost a parent that long ago. In fact, she was only about 18 months old. Imagine what was going through the mind of her twenty-something-year-old mother; she had just lost the love of her life and was left to raise their child. By the grace of God, although Maria has never experienced the love of an earthly father, she’s confident that God is all she needs.

Maria Toto is a 23-year-old who is currently studying art at Flagler College. She loves a nice cup of tea and invests time drawing and dreaming. Maria is an advocate of all things artsy, such as reading, listening to jazz music, and painting.

Interestingly enough, Maria’s father passed away on August 13, 1995 — the same day, but twenty years earlier, that LBF founders Alexis & Jessica Gauthier lost their father. Alexis and Maria have been friends since 2005. It is without a shadow of a doubt that God allowed these two girls to cross paths.
