Guest Speaker: Marion Hotz

Marion’s faith journey has had many bumps and bruises in it. A mother addicted to Valium, a father who rarely
showed his love, the trauma of sexual abuse, and recently, the sudden and unexpected death of her 5 year old grandson. Through all the hardships God has been the ship that carried her and the anchor that grounded
her. God in His infinite mercy led her to a Catholic Charismatic prayer meeting at the young age of 17.
The graces and gifts that she received there have been a sure foundation. God has richly blessed her with faith, hope, and love (along with the gift of prophecy when praying for people). Through her life’s journey, her prayer has been steadfast in knowledge that God uses ALL things (all our sufferings and joys) for good. May her story bless each woman that attends and lead closer to Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Personal Prayer ministry is available after the meal by the Magnificat Service Team.
Religious books and CD’s are available at the meal.

HISTORY of Jesus Bread of Life  Chapter of Magnificat

(For the Diocese of Little Rock in Arkansas)

In 2011, while attending daily Mass the Lord spoke to my heart that it was time to bring a Magnificat Chapter to Central Arkansas.This inspiration came from a seed that was planted after attending our Mother Chapter, Mary Ark of the Covenant’s first meal many years earlier. As I prayed, the Lord gave me the names of the women whom he was calling to help start a new chapter. After calling the Central office and inquiring about the process, our group of women met and prayed and worked as we were guided by the Holy Spirit and the Central Service team. Through prayer, prayer and more prayer and discernment our chapter was named “Jesus Bread of Life”. We were dedicated, hardworking and a bit frightened at times as to how all of our prayers would play out but after about a year and a half, we held our first meal and had around 250 wonderful women attend. The original five service team members were: Founder Debbie Eckert Coordinator, Diane Bausom Co-Coordinator, Doris Williams Treasurer, Lib Harrison Historian, and Sarah Thornton, Secretary

Serving on the service team has stretched us and caused growth in many new and wonderful ways. The bonds the we share as sisters are beautiful, strong and uplifting. The joy we experience as we meet new women and help them experience the love of God is beyond human words but awesome, exciting, wonderful, and grateful would be a good start to state how we feel. The love and sisterhood doesn’t stop there! We have made friends from all over the world through this wonderful ministry we call Magnificat. We encourage you to be a part of all that Magnificat has to offer.
