About Madelon Maupin
Although Madelon Maupin's academic background includes both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biblical Studies, it is probably her 35+ years in business and her strong emphasis on written and verbal communication that give BibleRoads its "punch." Madelon spent 15 years in the newspaper industry, cultivating a commitment to highly focused, content-rich presentation and a strong research background. Over the next 20 years she headed a leadership consulting firm in Los Angeles, where she worked with some of the film industry's top firms and developed a capacity for clear, direct verbal communication. Ever since closing her consulting firm, it has been Madelon's joy to focus full-time on BibleRoads.com, which allows her to combine all of her skills in the talks and workbooks she presents on Biblical topics. Madelon's goal is to help others unlock the Bible in a non-denominational way so that they can discover the Scriptures' spiritual meaning and application to their lives. By delving into the history, politics, geography, customs, and culture of all the Biblical periods and books, she aims to enable readers and listeners to dive deep into these subjects themselves so they can find their own spiritual answer.
Thanks for the great vlog on community. I have found myself reaching out to the homeless community. Before, I did everything I could to keep them off the church property. Now, I have been giving them a spiritual and physical cup of cold water when I find them sleeping on the property. I visit with them and thank them for cleaning up after themselves instead of leaving a mess. My heart has been lifted.
What a beautiful heart-awakening you have had and so grateful you have shared it with us. It is exactly what is needed at this tough time for so many.
Thank you, Maddie, for yet another wonderful inspiring vlog!
Blessings to you & yours,
Thank you Madelon I am First Reader at the moment and actually am working on a reading “Facing down error”. For this I am using the story of Daniel in the lions den. I dug up an article I came across years ago about this story. In this article each lion was given a mortal mind quality Daniel was facing. The biggest lion was Fear followed by lust, jealousy, hate, deceit, malice and revenge. Facing down what we are facing with the current situation I am again suggesting that the first lion is fear. We could then identify other qualities… Read more »
Thank you so much, Madelon, for sharing your research and inspiration with us all! As so many of us, I too have always loved the “Daniel” and “fiery furnace” stories, and you have inspired me to delve into the second half of the book and read about the prophecies. Much gratitude!
Thank you, Ellen, for reminding us that the lions have different faces which identify the human problems we all can face and heal. My grandmother had the picture of Daniel in the lions’ den at the top of her stairs where I could view it before going to bed (we visited often.) I’ve wanted to have a reminder of these feelings. Living in a senior community provides me with many faces which might replicate these feelings, especially fear. I am grateful for the lessons which teach us to remove these feelings in our thinking and show only love. That makes… Read more »
Thank you for your latest VLOG on COMMUNITY and what we are facing (down)!
Yesterday I read an article by Madonna Holt where she quotes MBE: “Out of the gloom comes the glory of our Lord, and His divine Love is found in affliction. When a false sense suffers, the true sense comes out, and the bridegroom appears. We are then wedded to a purer, higher affection and ideal.” Misc 276
I am experiencing the above quotation even while sheltering in place! Thank you for supporting this idea!
That’s Madora Holt
Thank you so much, Maddie! Knowing the backstory of Daniel and the use of the stories to bring courage to the community is precious. I love the thought that the Bible stories are our community helpers too. Can’t wait for the course next week. 🙂
