Stepping into the family “business” a decade after graduating from Warren Wilson College, with a B.A. in Cross Cultural Studies, Maj-Britt went to Divinity School at Harvard, where she received her M.Div in 1992. She then went on to serve congregations in Norfolk VA., Ridgewood N.J. (interim), Englewood N.J., and Chapel Hill NC, none of which provided parsonages. She learned about buying and selling houses the hard way, but eventually, after joining up with her realtor spouse Michael, became quite adept at it.
In 2013 Maj-Britt left full-time ministry to write. There is a quote attributed to Jesus in the non-canonical Gospel of Thomas: “If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.” After bringing forth more than 900 pages of life material from within her, Maj-Britt is feeling relatively safe from destruction and far, far more joyous and free.
In 2016 Maj-Britt obtained her N.C. Real Estate license, and went to work as a real estate broker. But it took moving to the Southern Outer Banks of NC in 2018, and joining up with the firm of Keller Williams Crystal Coast, for her to discover a way to yoke her identity as a minister with her skills as a home-finding guide.
