Who Am I?

My name is Maggie. I grew up as a “missionary kid”, went to a boarding school for missionary kids, met and married another missionary kid, and together we became “missionaries.” guess I should be an expert on this whole “missionary” thing, huh? Not even close. For the past 6 years that my husband and I have been serving in Africa, I have wondered what in the world God has called us to.

I am a priceless child of God. I am a cherished wife. I am blessed to be a mother to THREE crazy boys. I love to laugh. I love to make others laugh. If you tell me I made you laugh, it will make my day.

This blog is meant to enourage and inspire by helping others see the reality of my daily walk on this earth. God has called each of us to be great, but greatness is often mistaken for perfection. Through humor and honesty, I am here to show that God’s definition of greatness is so different than ours, but He can redeem any of our imperfections into something BEAUTIFUL!

  1. hi maggie. i recognize the name. we used to live in tyler, TX. our church (5th st.) supported the christ family. i last saw your husband as a child! my husband retired a few years back (2004) there have been a lot of changes since. we now live in alabama near one of our daughters. i’m writing a blog series this october on our years in jamaica as missionaries. no, they weren’t as rustic as your life, but we learned so much in those 7 short years! i was an MK for part of my life as well and went to high school with lots of MK’s as well as many from aftrica. i’m enjoying your blog today:) especially the one about your stitches…ouch!
