Rosilind is an American girl living in Croatia. Raised in a pastor’s home her entire life, she always knew she would end up in full-time ministry.
In 2004, she packed her bags, waved goodbye to everything familiar in life and began her life as a missionary. Three years later she married a godly Croatian man and they have two crazy, silly toddler boys.
Rosilind is a graduate of Advanced Training Institute of America and worked with ATI in teaching juvenile delinquents. In 2001, she graduated from Christ for the Nations Institute where she majored in Practical Theology, minored in music, and attended School of Worship and the Arts.
Her past and present ministries include; leading worship, counseling, children’s ministries, youth ministry, women’s ministries, discipleship, leading Bible Studies and home groups.
Rosilind currently works at home as the church English administrator, coordinates children’s ministries, translates, edits, and teaches private piano. In her spare time she enjoys writing, crocheting and going on nature walks.
Rosilind is the author of A Little R & R. Her deep passion to encourage women to embrace the role God created them for and her deep love of the Bible drove her to take A Little R & R from the random blog about her kids and use it to encourages women to find contentment in what God created them to be. She also shares recipes, tips on organizing, and advice for new moms. Rosilind has been blogging since 2004 and has written 2 books, a personal commentary of the Bible, numerous unpublished articles, and songs. You can follow her on Facebook.

Last year, April became a stay-at-home mother to two beautiful children thanks to her husband of six years. She started her family journey unexpectedly, having gotten pregnant during her final year of law school. As an unwed mother, she struggled with a re-occurrence of depression. Her son’s father (who is her husband) has nurtured her through changing her career from lawyer to stay-at-home mother and through the losses of their son, her father and her grandmother.
Over the years, her weight has slowly risen as she worked outside the home and through her depression. Now that she is home full-time, she decided to change her focus to her family, which most importantly is her health, because without her health, she would have no family.
She firmly believes that our husband’s attraction is not only to our personality but our bodies. We, as our husband’s help meets, should try to maintain the woman he married. Although we may have had children, or we falter through other obstacles such as depression, it is our responsibility to work to get back to that woman. Sometimes that journey up is short, sometimes it’s long. What’s important is you recognizing that it’s something that you want to change and you are ready to make that change.
Her blog, 100lb Countdown is here to inspire you, guide you, help you take your lifestyle into your own hands to be the best help meet for your husband. Her hope is to help inspire you to make small lifestyle changes to help you get to your goal.
1 Corinthians 11:9 Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.
Titus 2:5 To be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
Proverbs 5:18-19 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.
