Maggie Lee Henson's Journal
Maggie Lee for Good Year Four
Written Oct 5, 2012 9:40pmI pen (or peck) this entry from my couch on a Friday Night with Ellie burrowed under my left side.
October 29th is so swiftly approaching: our 4th MLfG.
I have had the honor of following the book's wake to some speaking opps which have in turn blossomed into more people passionate about MLfG Day. ( run on. I know)
I was in Belton, Tx last week at The University of Mary Hardin Baylor. Loved it there! Roughly 80% of the 1400 students committed to be a part of MLfG.
This week I spoke for The City of Shreveport Women Inspiring Women Conference where I shared comedy, ML's story and left inspired.
The 16th I will be in Tifton, GA where EVERY ELEMENTARY school in town does a MLfG project. I will be raising $ for The Ronald McDonald House in Macon, GA.
We have begun renovating for Maggie Lee's Closet: a kid's clothes closet in shreveport that serves tge underpriviledged children joyfully and with lots of spunk.
Jack created a hilarious video for Maggie Lee for Good Day:
The best way to keep up w MLfG is on the facebook group.
If you "like" the page you will be added as a member:
We hope you are doing well and are so hugely blessed by your prayers and support.
Jack was wearing his new mlfg shurt and the cashier at Kohl's said, " I like your shirt! I sure prayed for that sweet Maggie Lee."
I said,"Thank you so much. I'm Maghie Lee's Mom"
God did not answer our prayers, your prayers or the cashier's prayers as we would have liked but we k ow that all of those petitions were not for nothing. So, thank you.
Feel free to watch and re-post to spread the word!

Dear CaringBridge Family-
On this our 18th wedding anniversary and as we approach the 3rd anniversary of the accident and loss of our Maggie Lee, we are truly amazed.
Amazed by your prayers and messages sent in our darkest hour. Amazed by the MLFG projects you participated in. Amazed by how this story of God's redemption and your participation has been embraced and spread through the medium of a little 144-page book.
In the first week of release, Maggie Lee for Good cracked the top 50 for Amazon's Christian Living section. TOP 50!!! We are first-time authors with zero marketing budget and a small publisher. As our publisher told us last Thursday Night in a book signing in Ft. Worth, "This is from all of the thousands of people whose hearts were touched by this story."
It's true. This is because of you and we are so grateful to see Maggie Lee's little face on books spread far and wide. We know she is loving that. Thank you to those who have ordered the book, read it, passed it on to friends and sent us pictures with you and the book. They make us smile.
Here are a few bits of info about MLfG;
MLFG is available in kindle / ibook and nook form;
Here is the Kindle link:
We have been asked if there is a way to get the books at a cheaper rate if bought in bulk. We are all about a bargain as well. The answer is yes. If you want to buy the book for your youth group, MOPS Group, support group, or just to have on hand to encourage people, with an order of 20 or more, you can get a 30% discount.
Here is that information:
Smyth & Helwys Publishing
Call: 1-800-747-3016 Fax 478-757-1305
Give them your customer information (Name, Billing, Shipping address and Payment information) and they will process your order asap.
That's the latest. Again, we are thankful for you and the prayers you sent up years ago which are still being answered today.
Maggie Lee for Good- Our Story
Written May 21, 2012 8:44pmClick here for a link to the Maggie Lee for Good book.Hello, Amazing Friends- What can we say besides "Wow?" For many months John and I have been working on compiling Maggie Lee's story and more than that, the greater story that God has written through many of your lives through Maggie Lee for Good. The book is being printed as I write and we honestly cannot believe that we are so blessed to see our daughter's beautiful face on the cover and her story in pages. Several Caring Bridge posts made it into Maggie Lee for Good. A few of yours as well as a few of ours. We thank you so much for having joined us on this journey which unbelievably began three years ago this July 12. If you click this link to our publisher's website (Smyth & Helwys) you will find a preview of the book and if you wish to preorder, click the "Add to Cart" button under the pre-order button. Thank you for your company on this very traumatic journey, your participation in God's very unexpected redemption of it and the faithful prayers which have fueled it all. Humbly yours, Jinny
