What is your name, and can you tell us about your salvation experience?
My name is Maggie Brower. I am a pastor’s kid, so I grew up in the church. When I was about 5 years old, I made the decision to accept Christ. However, it wasn’t until I was about 14 that I really acknowledged my need for forgiveness and grace.
Tell us about your role as a team member of Word of Life Bible Institute, and your favorite memory of WOLBI as a student.
I work in the Marketing department as a graphic designer. When I was a first-year student, I had the privilege of going to Israel. It was my first time leaving the country and was one of the best experiences ever. It was amazing to take all of the Biblical teachings I had learned throughout the year and put them into a reality. I enjoyed it so much, and I hope to go back soon!
What is your life verse and why?
I don’t have a life verse, but one I have been clinging to lately is Galatians 5:16-17 which says:
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.”
It’s a simple reminder that sin is real, and I can only combat it through the power of Christ.
Why do you love serving students?
I love serving students because I didn’t take advantage of the staff when I was a student. I love the opportunity to be a part of life-change here at WOLBI!
If you could speak to a younger you today – what would you say?
I would say, “What makes you love God more?”
And I’d push myself to answer outside of the typical Sunday School answer, like reading your bible and praying more (though those things are amazing), but taking walks in nature, sitting in silence, creating things, or the like. Those things stir up my affections for Christ in a way that I wish I had realized sooner.
