Collie Maggie calls herself a “throw-away” child. Abandoned by her mother after her father's death, she entered foster homes at the age of four. Seven foster homes later she created her own home when she married Jack, now her husband for 39 years. “My one and only dream as a child was to be adopted,” Collie says. “It didn't happen until I became a Christian and read Ephesians 1:5: ‘He predestined us to be adopted as his sons through in accordance with his pleasure and will.’ My heart stood still after reading that verse. My dream came true that day.” A secretary for her home church in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Collie has been involved in many ministries over the years. Her passion is reminding hurting readers of the hope Christ gives—of His purpose and plan for each one of us.
