About Gianna

Originally from Adelaide, Australia, Gianna Mancini moved across the world to study at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, California. She’s passionate and lively – mostly thanks to her Italian heritage -, and one of her favorite things to do is have a quality conversation over a well-made latte (or two). She’s also a creative and blogger over at writeitonyourheart.com

Gianna is passionate in her pursuit of Jesus and seeks to live her life authentically, allowing others into her process to encourage and champion others into more God and wholeness.

In this episode, Rachel chats with her friend Gianna about the difference between feeling loved and being loved. Gianna mentions the season in her life where rejection was “knocking and banging at her door” and how she overcame the feelings of rejection by finding acceptance first by the Father, knowing how she feels loved by others and then bravely communicating this to the people she loves.
