Maureen Hager is a survivor. Her passion lies in empowering women to receive healing from their brokenness through the love of Christ. Once a wounded victim in a biker gang war, her painful journey led her into a place of restoration. Her testimony of deliverance and hope has impacted women of all ages.
She is currently writing her first book based on her journey through emotional, spiritual and physical trauma. A misguided search for love and acceptance led her into a world of drugs and life in a motorcycle gang. Caught up in a violent gang war, she became a victim of two gunshot wounds when a rival gang opened fire with M16 rifles. Within those few seconds, the crippling bullets forever changed her life. In her determination to start a new life, she encountered the hope and healing of God’s transforming love.
She is an advocate for anti-human trafficking. Maureen has helped lead self-esteem building workshops for at-risk teens and mentor girls who have been victims. She continues to raise awareness about domestic sex trafficking. Currently, she serves on the board of Sufficient Grace Outreach, a ministry to women and girls in the sex industry.
Maureen and her husband Tom live in Western North Carolina. They have two grown daughters and a spirited Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
