About

Maggie Winterton strives to “inspire and inspirit” women through writing, speaking and editing Devotional Diva. She’s currently a nomadic military wife, but is originally from Iowa. Maggie is a self-asserted princess, Diet Pepsi addict and animal lover.

Hi! That’s my official bio up there, but I wanted to add a little something more personal. I’m Maggie and I’m a Christian. That fact will always define me the most, but I’m also many other things. I’m a military wife and mom to my new baby boy, Oliver (and two kitties). I am a writer and speaker. And I am the editor-in-chief of Devotional Diva, a blog that runs on guest posters who are gracious and brave enough to share their stories.

My husband, Brandon, is in the United States Navy. We were married in 2011 when I was only 19. (What can I say? I fell in love!) Oliver, our first bébé, was born in May 2015. We get to move around a lot and we’re blessed to live in beautiful San Diego right now. I totally didn’t think my life would turn out anything like this, but God always has the right plans for us.

I’ve decided to use my powers for good and help other women. My tagline is “inspire and inspirit.”

Inspire:

in·spire
inˈspī(ə)r/
verb
fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.

Inspirit:

in·spir·it
inˈspirit
verb
to fill with spirit
Like I said, I am first and foremost a Christian. A lot of my writing has to do with God, and obviously Devotional Diva is a Christian website. But I don’t think that I need to specifically mention the Lord in all of my work because He’s just naturally there.

I want to show all women love.

  1. Maggie,
    I just read your article on suicide and want to thank you for being so brave to post it!! As a Christian, I know that many of my Christian friends are rather judgmental in regards to this topic. I feel that is so wrong and unhelpful for us to be that way. Years ago, I thought about killing myself and thank God I didn’t. My life was falling apart and I just wanted the emotional pain to stop! I look back on that dark time and am glad I’m still here and I’m amazed at how God has enriched my life since then. I, like you, think God understands all our pain and hurt and if you have a saving knowledge of Christ, suicide would NOT prevent you from being with Him. Thank you for speaking out on this important topic – I know it will help many women who struggle with depression. Keep up the good work!

  2. Suicide doesn’t stop your pain, you take it with you…if you don’t know Jesus. Since we cannot kill our spirit we take everything with us, it’s better to deal with the pain here and resolve it. Of course, only Jesus can help us do that.
