Maggie Slighte was born and raised and raised 3 children in Western Washington. Her early adulthood was spent first in the medical field and then as a computer programmer. Having been told there was “no money in writing,” her dreams bled into journals while she raised her family and worked for the state.
Maggie surprised her friends and family in 2013 by following a still, small voice in her heart to the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She began blogging her spiritual journey shortly before her Baptism at Sister Maggie which started out with a pun as Slightely Mormon where she loves to share her experiences with The Gospel and God.
Maggie finished her Bachelor’s Degree in Nonfiction writing at Southern New Hampshire University in August 2017 and has recently been accepted at National University to work on her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction and finish her works in progress: The Car That Ran on Prayers.
After exposure to an antibiotic (levofloxacin) in mid-2017, Maggie’s disabilities profoundly increased. While her stature is different in a powerchair, she has found a new opportunity for her spirit of advocacy while traveling over broken sidewalks.
When she isn’t writing studying, advocating or traveling, Maggie enjoys researching her family tree, spending time with her grandchildren and her two dogs.
