More Than You Probably Want to Know:
A farmer’s daughter born and raised in Illinois, Maggie spent 25 years in ministry in New England with her pastor-husband Mike, where she taught at Daniel Webster University and directed women’s ministries throughout the six New England states. While living in the Chicago area, Maggie served as a public relations professional for Tyndale House as well as a guest communications instructor at Wheaton College. Maggie and Mike now happily reside in western North Carolina, where Maggie writes from Peace Ridge, their home in the Smokies.
Maggie has spoken at hundreds of outreach events, retreats and conferences throughout the U.S. As a dramatist she performs original historical reenactments of the lives of great women of the Christian faith including Mary of Nazareth, Sarah Pierpont Edwards, and Amy Carmichael. Maggie has contributed to over ten books, and her first as a solo author, This Life We Share, released in 2020 from NavPress. She's currently at work on her second book scheduled for publication in early 2022 from Tyndale House.
In 2014 Maggie earned her M.A. in Biblical Studies from Wheaton Graduate School. Her greatest blessings are Mike, her husband of over 40 years, their three adult children and spouses and five grandchildren. She loves hiking, mountain dancing, books and anything chocolate, but mostly she loves people.
MISSION STATEMENT: Maggie’s personal mission as a speaker, teacher, and dramatist can be summed up in the words of 1 Peter 4:11: “If anyone speaks, she should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, she should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen!”
