Read full description of the books:
A three-room house in northern Minnesota with no running water can seem crowded with a mother, stepfather, five siblings, and a dog. It was swampland barely claimed from wilderness, where temperatures of 40 below could freeze a chicken house full of hens. It was the place Margie accidentally killed her favorite dog, was chased by a timber wolf, learned to love work and humor and hate sheep. Her roots were tangled with the death of a father who was killed before her birth, leaving her mother a widow at seventeen.
This was also where her spiritual awakening began. She yearned for home, for a father who loved her. Margie determined to win her step-father's love and approval, but failed. Her stories of her childhood show how suffering ripened the landscape of her life. From her earliest memories at the age of four through dark nightmares, she became aware that God received her as a beloved daughter. She had been, all along, in The Exact Place she needed to be.

Read information about the authorMargie Haack grew up in Minnesota, a stone’s throw from the Canadian border. While she was a pre-med student at the University of Minnesota, she met her husband, Denis, who changed the course of her life. Their years together have seen many turns, including living in a commune in New Mexico. Their move to Rochester, Minnesota included a search for meaningful Christian community, and it was there they came to know and be mentored by Francis and Edith Schaeffer.
Margie’s life has been one of glad collaboration with Denis as they have shared a love for home and hospitality, for art and culture, and for the prodigal, unpredicted nature of God at work in ordinary life. They are Co-Directors of Ransom Fellowship, a ministry devoted to helping Christians thoughtfully love and engage the world with integrity. For many years, Margie’s calling has included writing a quarterly publication of personal essay and ministry news called Notes from Toad Hall. Her work appears in Art House America, Comment magazine, The High Calling Blog, and Washington Institute for Faith. She also keeps her own blog at Toad Drinks Coffee.
Margie and Denis have three adult children and 8 grandchildren she wishes were underfoot more often.
