Margaret M. Beamer (Margie) was born in Stow, Ohio, to Douglas & Maxine Auckland. At age 19 she moved to Staten Island, New York, where she married and began her family while assisting at First Bible Church of Staten Island. After several years the family moved back to Ohio, where Margie worked for a property management company for 15 years while raising her 7 children.
Margie and her husband, Mark, are very active in their church, where all 7 of their children and 11 grandchildren attend weekly. Margie enjoys hanging out with her family and most outdoor sports. Family vacations to the beach or the mountains have become a yearly tradition, where all of the kids are encouraged to engage in outdoor activities. One of Margie's favorite Bible verses is 1 Thessalonians 5:18, "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
