Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Lhasa apsos and golden-doodles! Birds and squirrels!
I think I’m done now…
Welcome to this episode of “Maggie Shares Exciting News and Fun Events”.Are you intrigued? I know I am and I already know what the exciting news is! Let me start by saying, you may or may not know this: I have produced a number of CDs in the past. My most recent one was recorded in 2013 I believe at a little house in Boone, NC (shout out to the ladies of El Dorado who put up with my incessant music making). Since then I have done some performing and what not, finished my ASU degree, completed a GCU certificate in leading worship, and been involved in various other things, all while sitting on a deep-seated dream that no one knew of outside my immediate family and a very chosen few. As of December 2017, a new thing has happened. I have become something I’ve wanted to be for a long time and I am excited to share that with you all today.
Folks…I wrote a book.
A whole book. I wrote a “Christian Living” book, if it has to have a label. It does have to have a title and, as you can see, the title is No Camping: Refusing to Stay in Fear. In my book, I discuss the human emotion of fear and the part that it does play in the lives of Christians and the part that it should play in our lives. I wrote this book because I found some truths in the Bible that God illuminated for me and I am sure that other people need them as much as I do!
Which brings me to the second thing we need to discuss: an event! I’m going to have a book release/album release/look what God’s been doing in my life/celebrating all the things…thing. On January 27th from 6:30-8:00 at Calvary Baptist Church in Mt. Airy I will have my book available for purchase and I will also have a new CD entitled “Church in Broken Places”. Come out and let’s talk about fear; let’s talk about what God is up to in our world; let’s talk about music; let’s talk about lots of things and laugh together and pray together and maybe even sing together!
I look forward to seeing you on the 27th and celebrating all that God is getting ready and the wonderful gifts Jesus provided us with for when fear becomes too much!
