About Me

I have been a follower of Jesus since the age of ten and have always loved writing. I blog at http://www.mandybakerjohnson.com and also write a monthly post for the ACW blog (http://morethanwriters.blogspot.co.uk/).

I co-authored Drawn from Words (http://www.blurb.co.uk/bookstore/invited/6319417/61068cd0f409812ac3051fe651fe3bff41365936) in May 2016.

I work as a private medical secretary and freelance writer.

About Me
I was born and grew up in England, but have lived in Switzerland since 2001 with my husband Keith and our two daughters. With Keith, I am part of the leadership team at Oikos International Church in Basel. Keith and I have ministered together as a couple for many years leading Alpha courses, and recently developed and taught the course, ?Enriching sexual intimacy in Christian marriage?. My other roles include: ? Speaker ambassador for Compassion Switzerland, a Christian child sponsorship charity; we sponsor four children ? Volunteer with Rahab, a Salvation Army outreach to sex workers in Basel?s red-light district. ? Leader at the Saphira women?s ministry in Basel, speaking at regular events for this and at other churches in Switzerland. My debut book was Gorgeous: Seeing yourself through God's eyes (Evangelista Media, 2014). It was published in German as Du bist wŁnderschon: Mit den Augen Gottes sehen (Cap Books 2014) I love to encourage others and demonstrate how a relationship with Jesus Christ changes our lives, here and now. I am passionate about sharing the treasurers and freedoms of following Jesus, and delights in helping people on their journey to become all that God intended them to be, by sharing my own life story with honesty and down-to-earth humour. My motivation is simply this: ?Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me? (Psalm 66:16).

About Me

I was born Margaret Christine Mary Doust in 1958 in my grandparent's home in Redhill, Surrey, England. If my father had had his way I would have been called Margaret Angela Doust. Now some of you might think those initials apt for my personality, but no doubt there would have been some stick at school. Fortunately my parents realized their error just in time.

 

My mother was a Radiographer and I used to love thumbing through her professional manual. Those broken bones enthralled me! My father worked as an X-Ray Engineer. My parents had four children and I was the only girl.

 

 

 

A definite tomboy as a child, I grew up in South West England where I played football endlessly with my brothers. This skill eventually bore fruit and I won a medal doing what my feet did best - kicking a ball.

 

School was not my favourite place as it meant hours sitting in a room. Most of the time I looked out of the window day dreaming. Being cooped up meant I was not outside where I felt naturally comfortable.

 

My favourite subject was PE and I excelled at hockey as girls were not allowed to play football at school back then.

 

 

 

 

Teachers made the comment back then that if I could have learnt on the playing field I would be a genius.

 

My other joy was writing. I find this interesting now, as most of it was illegible due to poor reading skills, creative spelling and a total misunderstanding of the English language.

 

They call it dyslexia now! But my imagination refused to be curbed by such a minor detail. Accordingly, I have written many books in my head, but only one has been published!

 

 

Since leaving school I have had a full life and in my thirties succumbed to marrying. I have three wonderful children, and my love of stories now meant I could encourage my own children to help with the plots, as we made them up at bedtime.

 

This love of story telling finally became a reality when my first novel was published in September 2014. So instead of kicking a ball, I took up writing and found a desire to kick words around instead, passing, dribbling and eventually scoring the winner - I hope.

 

 

 

I also have a very strong faith which is tested in the day to day commotion of life. This has lent itself to a 'slightly' different perspective on the world.

About Me

A founder member of ACW, I have written 24 books, the latest of which, 'It's Just You and Me Lord' is published in September 2012. In my blog 'What If ...'  [http://marionstroud.blogspot.com] I explore how taking steps of faith has influenced my writing career. I am a cross cultural trainer for Media Associates, a charity seeking to help Christians to write culturally relevant material in the spiritually 'hard' countries of the world.

About Me

My husband Don and I continue to live in a rambling old farmhouse outside Aberdeen, where we raised our four children. I moved to Scotland from California in 1975 when Don and I were married - the transition was the catalyst for a life-changing encounter with God. I've written for and edited a few different publications during my working life, and freelance articles to Woman Alive and Bible study notes for BRF's Day by Day with God. I've written three books - a children's book, The Comet's Tale, which one of my sons got published with lulu.com, a devotional book called Footprints of Faith and an historical novel called Chains of Love, about Onesimus. Still waiting for publishers. I've got a couple of ideas for new novels which I've started work on, in between church commitments and frequent rendezvous with our beautiful granddaughter Felicity, and travel to LA twice a year to see my 90 year old mom and our daughter Mhairi.

About Me

I became a Christian 20 years ago and am married to a wonderful man Chris, and am blessed to have a beautiful 21 year old daughter Emma. Both of them are also Christians. I also have a twin sister. My interests are reading, writing, photography, gardening, decorating, and being at the seaside! I can't resist eating fish and chips whilst looking out to sea!

I have been a housewife and mother for the past 22 years, but the Lord is now taking me on a new journey with Him with the publishing of my first book 'Come on Church! Wake Up!'. The official release date is 8th January 2013, and is available through amazon.com and amazon.co.uk, as well as christianbooks.com.

My website www.comeonchurchwakeup.com which includes a blog, is in the final stages of development and will hopefully go live this month.

I have recently given my first testimony about how the book came to be written and published, and am hoping to be able to do more of these at events where I will have copies of my book to sell direct to those who attend.

I am looking forward to being part of ACW and to meeting new people at events, and also to discovering what the Lord is unveiling before me!
