Margie Haack and her husband, Denis, are co-directors of a ministry, Ransom Fellowship, which helps Christians engage postmodern culture, and challenges them to live in ways that are both authentic to the Christian faith and winsome in its expression. This work includes writing and speaking about any topic from movies to tattooing in light of biblical faith.
The practice of hospitality has been central to their lives. They like to invite people into conversation, through their writing, their home, lives, giving unhurried time and a safe place where one can talk about anything, maybe eat some of Margie's great chicken enchiladas and then take a nap.
Margie is editor of a quarterly newsletter, Notes From Toad Hall, where she writes about being faithful in the ordinary and the everyday. She has a completed manuscript currently being shopped—Through Devil's Gap—a memoir of growing up in an impoverished farm family in northern Minnesota, and of coming to faith. Margie has three children and seven grandchildren, and thinks the final count may not be in yet.
