My latest book — about how the women of the Bible grew from behaving like the cast of Eastenders to powerful leaders and inspirational examples.
Hi, I’m Maggy Whitehouse, writer, author, Independent Catholic minister, Bible historian — and stand-up comedian.
I’m a former BBC journalist and presenter and the author of seventeen books on aspects of spirituality from mystical interpretation of the Bible to a history of Opus Dei. My whole life has been spent exploring the complexities of the inner and the outer life — and it has been a life of miracles too, including travelling in China in the 1980s, escaping unscathed from a giant barracuda, emigration to Montana (and back), widowhood, divorce and an ongoing happy marriage.
What can I do for you?
I can write articles, blogs and content to your requirements, with or without humour. I can host or compere your event, make you laugh out loud and inspire you simultaneously, ghost-write your book, run workshops on women in the Bible, Judaic mysticism and the New Testament, perform a sacred ceremony for you – from baby-naming through marriage, divorce and death. Oh – and I can present a radio or TV show for you too. Plenty of years’ experience in all of the above (see the About Me) page and plenty of fabulous stories to tell too.
I can also offer you spiritual mentoring if you think your life has gone off-kilter. Just click on the ‘Help’ button above to find out more about that.
What you’ll find on this site is:
A deep and abiding love for the Holy One (whatever you may choose to call It) but please don’t be put off by the ‘religious’ aspect. I have the greatest respect for all faiths — and none. My greatest spiritual experience — so far — was in the Mosque of Sidi-Uqba in Kairouan, Tunisa and I concur with the Islamic mystic Hafiz’s view that “It is a great injustice and a monumental act of cruelty for any religion to make someone fear God.”
Ceremony and Ritual — individually-written services for you, whether you are getting married, divorced or need some help in marking a sacred rite of passage. I believe that the primary purpose of a minister is to help lift hearts.
My latest novel — imagine what would happen if the Messiah came today as a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’.
