Now she is back, cancer free, to speak on the topic "Fight Back With Joy." Margaret has been named one of the "30 Voices" who will help lead the church in the next decade by Charisma magazine as well as one of the 50 women shaping the church and culture by Christianity Today. If you have not heard her speak this conference is a must. Click on the following link to watch a short video about Margaret. <https://player.vimeo.com/video/127185324>
