Born Lynne-Marie Uden in South Australia, my guest changed her name to Evania in 1995. More on that later ... Evania has blazed a trail in so many areas of her life; a former police officer in South Australia, she went on to work for the United Nations in Vienna in Security & Safety services and later, became the first female sports reporter in Queensland.

As she hit career highs, Evania was also going from strength to strength in her sport: pistol shooting, which culminated in her representing Australia at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona, the only woman on the shooting team. But what should have been one of the joyous moments of her life was overshadowed by what happened when she returned from the Games. As Evania puts it, her whole life caved in and she lost everything, husband, possessions, cars businesses, the lot.

Then on December 12 of that year, 1992, Evania had a spiritual experience that transformed the course of her life. The effects of that unexpected gift were so staggering that nothing was ever the same again.
