Our Biblical Ministry Contributor

rosilind

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 Rosilind has been blogging since 2004 and has written 2 books, a personal commentary of the Bible, numerous unpublished articles, and songs.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.

 

Our Mother’s Encouragement Contributor

marissa

Marissa is a follower of the King. She is stumbling through the process of learning how to live the life God designed for her, as a wife to a strong Christian leader and mother to two energetic boys. Marissa understands the overwhelming pressure moms feel to be the best mom their kids could ever dream up, yet she strives to remember God doesn’t ask us to do anything that will break us. In the few moments she can have to herself, Marissa enjoys reading stories with strong characters (think Anne of Green Gables), watching corny TV (Gilmore Girls) or just browsing the web, especially Pinterest.

Marissa’s corner, Reading List provides a place to find reviews of books from the perspective of a Christian mommy, and Marissa shares her take on many of the books she reads – particularly fiction, Christian fiction/non-fiction, Christian studies/devotionals, children’s books and more. She invites friends and followers to join in the discussion. Reading List is also home to the Cozy Book Hop, a chance to share your own thoughts on books once a week.

Hello, all! I am Bernadette, aka, the Barefoot Hippie Girl. And this is Mr. Hippie and our offspring, BMV (10), Freckles (8), LC (5), and Meres (18 months). Well, Meres wasn’t 18 months in this picture, but everyone was looking in the proper direction, so this was our 2012 family photo.=)
Our brood of Barefoot Hippies calls the Mitten State home. Mr. Hippie and I have been married for 11 years. The best of years of my life. Though his driving has added to my grey hair count. We look at marriage as a partnership. Not same roles, but working together for the same goals. We are life partners, running partners, parenting partners, traveling partners, swimming partners, home business partners and ministry partners. We own a roofing and siding business. And we home school.

 

My blog, Barefoot Hippie Girl, is where I share my overflowing thoughts. I should say, I am not a Hippie, though I do many Hippie things-like home birth, home school, and gardening. But I do love being barefoot. All the time. Excepting January and February, when my feet tend to turn purple from the cold. Then I throw on a pair of socks.  And I don’t run barefoot either.

 

My blogging motivation is to point my readers to the Lord Jesus Christ as their source of strength and renewal. I love Isaiah 40:30-31-even the youths grow faint and weary, but, they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not grow weary.  They shall walk and not faint. I try to filter each post I write through this verse. So whether through humor, or devotional posts, recipes or my “hippie method” series-my goal for you is to be encouraged, to grow closer to God, and to renew your strength in this race of life.

 

As I join this series with Misty, I will be writing about ministry and ministering with your spouse. I am not married to a pastor. We are not missionaries. But we do minister a lot together. Our chief end is to glorify God-and we try to do that together, as much as possible. We are leaving in less than 2 weeks for Asia to visit missionary friends, and lead children’s sessions for a mission organization’s annual training time.

 april

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.
