See all of Maxine’s books below …
All of Maxine’s friends and family call her “Mackie” and that is what she hopes you will do, if you are not already one who knows her.
Mackie has been telling stories all her life, but she has sixty—one years of going out to the public, so on her site she will likely be telling some stories that you can learn and tell. This is something that is second nature to her—a way of communication and as she says, “I love to tell the story!”
At present, she has finished writing her memoirs, so she will be coming here regularly and adding new thoughts to her blog. Her blog is all about storytelling, stories, and she loves to share her thoughts on subjects that we all like to think about—Mackie says she has never stopped wondering. “Think of the wonders of God,” she sings, so she loves to write about some of the things that are wonder—full! A new way to spell a word—she comes up with things like that to pique the imagination!
She never impressed me as being one of her years! In fact, she likes to say that she hates to think of herself as a grown woman, much less an “old lady.” I think she said she read that somewhere and forgot who said it, but decided it was her own sentiments exactly, so she claims it. Knowing that she has a kindred spirit out there who feels the same way lends charm to the idea.
So this is the site for stories, poetry, the words to old forgotten songs that she knows from her mountain heritage, reminiscing about events in her life, and what she loves best of all to talk about—unseen things above. Of Jesus and His Glory—of Jesus and His love!
Come back often. You will always find a warm welcome here at Mackie’s place.
