Meet Maggie MontgomeryWe at Christian Ereader News would like to welcome Maggie Montgomery.  Maggie is the new nanny for billionaire Conrad Ayers’ children.

CEN:  Thanks for coming today, Maggie.

Maggie:  Thank you for having me.

CEN:  Tell us a little about your new job.

Maggie:  Oh, well, my new job is great.  It is.  I look after the two children—Peter and Isabella.  And they are the sweetest little kids in the world.  Very well behaved.  Not that they really have much choice.  Everything is run on a pretty tight schedule at the Ayer mansion.  Peter has all kinds of lessons.  Of course Izzy being so young, she doesn’t have lessons yet, but I’m sure that’s just a matter of time.

CEN: So we hear there’s a new relationship in your life?  Tell us about that.

Maggie:  A new…? Oh.  You mean Keith.

Well, that’s not really a relationship.  I mean, not like you mean anyway.  Not like… we’re together or anythingWe’re not. Definitely not.  After all, he’s engaged to Dallas Henderson, you know, the senator’s daughter. Yeah.  And they’re getting married in June… (Maggie trails off, lost in thought).  They’re right for each other. They are. Perfect really.  I mean, Dallas is just who Keith should be with.  She’s really smart.  In fact, she’s going to be lawyer, and she has all the right connections.  She’s a nice person too.  Not that we’ve really been around each other much. I mean, I’m just the help and all.

And Keith… Keith is Mr. Ayers’ son, with his first wife.  Not that I knew that the first time we met. (Laughs)  I thought he was the hired hand, that he just ran the stables.  And he does… he does do that.  (Drifts off again, sighs, and looks up)  But we’re just friends, and I’m sure once he’s married, we won’t even be that.  Not that I blame him.  After all, that’s how it should be.

CEN:  What has been the biggest obstacle in your life?

Maggie: I lost my parents when I was very young—only 8.  They were killed in a car accident.  It’s been really tough since then because I ended up in the foster care system growing up.  Although I finally got to a good home, the first few were pretty rough.  I guess that’s why I’m so passionate about kids, why I went into early childhood education, because I see how important protecting and being there for kids really is.

CEN:  If you could have or do one thing, what would it be?

Maggie: That’s easy.  I would do everything I could to show every child in the world how much God loves them.  Whether that would mean taking in foster kids or going into places where kids are really struggling to just get by.  I think it’s so important for them to know that God really cares about them and that He has a Plan for each one of them, even if they can’t see it right now.

Like this job is for me.  I mean, I don’t plan on staying here forever.  At least I didn’t when I got here, but Pete and Izzy…. Well, we’ll see what God has planned, but trust me, I never saw this coming, so who knows what God has in mind for me.

CEN:  It sounds like your faith is very important to you.  Can you tell us more about that?

Maggie: Bouncing around in the system, I got really lucky that I had God from the start.  He helped me through so many nights of being alone and trying not to be afraid.  I would lay in bed, and I would talk to Him, in my heart, you know.  Just talk.  I’d tell Him about school and about what was going on.  Finally He brought me to Mrs. Malowinski’s house, and she taught me even more how much He loves me, how much He cares and especially how He really does have plans for me—things I can’t see or imagine.  That gives me hope, hope that all this stuff that’s happened to me is for a reason, that He’s got a Plan to use them to help others and maybe even me.

CEN:  What was it like to lose your parents at such a young age?

It was really hard because I didn’t have anyone else.  It was like one minute I had a family, and then all of a sudden, it was just me… well, me and God.  I guess that’s why I got so close to Him.  He was the only thing I had left, the only thing I really had to hold onto.

CEN:  What do you like to do in your spare time?

What spare time? (Laughs.)

I don’t get time off very much at the Ayers’ mansion.  Not that anyone does.  Even Peter is scheduled to the hilt.  But I have gone out with Greg a couple of times. Oh, Greg is one of Keith’s friends.  Not that that makes any difference, but…

Well, anyway, I’ve kind of learned that taking time off or doing anything outside of what’s written on Patty Ann’s schedule is a good way to get into big trouble although to be honest, I would really like to go out riding with Keith and the kids again.  Not that that will happen, of course, but it would be nice.

CEN:  What is your biggest fear?

That I’m going to be homeless, hungry, and alone if this job doesn’t work out, and right now, that’s looking more and more likely!  In fact, I really need to get back because Patty Ann’s just looking for a reason to fire me, and me being gone so long would be good enough for her.

CEN:  Okay.  Well, thank you for sitting down with us today.

Maggie:  Thanks for having me, and now I really have to get back.  God bless!
