On June 5, 2014, Maggie Weiss was in Seville, Spain on a study abroad program when she was hit by a 20-ton city bus. She traveled 25 meters through the air from the point of impact. Her parents, Tad and Wendy Weiss traveled across the ocean to be by her side. Our story journals Maggie’s five-year recovery from the accident, and how God caught her, saved her, carried her, and healed her. The story illustrates the power of prayer and community, and how God can bring great things from the most tragic of events.
Our story is more than a comeback story. It starts with a miracle and illustrates the power of the body of Christ. It is a story that spans the globe, and a guide for handling adversity and hardship. With equal parts drama, adventure, progress, and challenge, with some daily devotions mixed in, we invite you to follow our story and see how it impacts your story.
Over the past five years, Tad Weiss has been writing a book about this journey, to be published by Redemption Press in August 2022. In conjunction with the release of the book, Maggie and Tad will be competing in IRONMAN Wisconsin together in September 2022. They will be racing to give glory to God for all He has done, and to raise money for four fantastic charities. We encourage you to join us on the journey!
We hope that you will be blessed by the book and our story. Our God is the God of miracles today, just as He was thousands of years ago. Our family’s hope and prayer are that you can experience God in a new way and enjoy the fullness of life that He desires for us all.
