Reactions to Maggie’s Performances:
________________________________________________________________

“The Woman Jesus Called Mother” deeply touched the hearts of just under 200 women the night of December 10th at First Baptist Wheaton. Maggie’s performance drew us into thinking about all that Mary went through, from happy thoughts as a young girl to heavy tears as an older woman to deep joy upon the realization of all that her Son had accomplished through his death and resurrection. She knew she had been called to be God’s servant, and in yielding everything to Him recognized that her Son had come to be her Savior. A powerful and deeply moving performance!

We just had Maggie at Harvest Bible Chapel-Peoria to present, “The woman Jesus called Mother.” It was so powerful! There was not a dry eye in the room as Maggie brought the reality of Jesus to life. It truly left each woman taking a fresh look at Jesus. I don’t think anyone left the same way they came. The Lord was glorified.

The impact was powerful…. she gave a flawless performance and believable telling of the emotions a young woman would have getting prepared for marriage, how she had to face the criticism for obedience to God and yet kept faithful to the plan, the natural fears of a mother at various stages of her pregnancy and giving birth (which was tastefully portrayed) and the raw emotion of a mother seeing her child brutally treated.  The end was the best as Mary realized that the son she gave life to was actually sent to give life eternal to her.  Very powerfully presented and hearts were touched for the Gospel that night.

“Last year, the ladies of Ashburn Baptist Church in Orland Park, invited Maggie to their Christmas Dinner to perform her dramatization of “Mary, the Woman Jesus Called Mother”.  That performance was so powerful, not a dry eye in the house by the end.  The response from our ladies was so overwhelming that we decided to invite her to our Christmas Dinner, once again, this time to “meet Amy Carmichael”.  Maggie’s dramatization did not disappoint!  Many of the women in our group made life changing commitments after that performance, including two ladies who turned their lives over to the Lord!”

The women at our Christmas Tea have kept telling me how moving Maggie’s performance was that evening.  They said how wonderful it was to hear Mary’s point of view.  It was an emotional journey with Mary through her life as the “Mother of Jesus.”

The women of Grace Fellowship Church in Oak Forest have been blessed with Maggie’s performances two times now! In the past we were challenged by Amy Carmichael as Maggie portrayed her to us in a way that draws you right into her life! It was fascinating to learn about her devotion to the Lord and to be challenged in our own walk with the Lord! Recently we had her back for a Christmas outreach where her presentation of Mary went out to nearly 300 hundred women! We were so encouraged and look forward to the fruit that will surely come in the lives of the women in attendence that night!

We so enjoyed Maggie’s presentation ~ she excellently took her audience from the beginning of Mary’s journey to the end of her life. She portrayed Mary in a way that we could relate to her and have a better understanding of what the mother of Jesus went through. Seeing Mary embrace Jesus as her Messiah and King was an amazing thing to see!! We would encourage anyone to see Maggie’s
presentation of Mary .
