I am Rose Ward and have a background in Art and Business. I love being creative and for those of you who like to know the technical stuff, I have an Associates of Art degree, Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) degree with an emphasis in Photography, completed a Discipleship Training Program (DTS) certification with YWAM, and hold a Masters in Business Administration degree (MBA). I graduated with honors in all studies and *no, this does not mean I am a genius, it just means I have good study habits and love to learn. I am thankful for being a "mostly home-schooled" individual who developed a love of learning. My passion is to create seed-bearing content and resources for Women in ministry along with developing, writing and designing educational resources and books for both adults and children of all ages.
I enjoy being challenged by my four cool kiddos (all under the age of eight) to grow as a friend, mother and teacher -- *yes, we home school as well. Am I crazy? Maybe, but it works for us. God has given my husband and I an opportunity to raise these beautiful blessings and we are so thankful for them *snotty noses, rainy days, and all. They teach us every day what it means to love wholeheartedly, with grace.
I met Andrew in 2008 and married him in 2008. If you would like to hear this beautiful God story you can tune into the BLOOM & REED Prayer Podcast to find out more! We feel blessed to reside in a sweet little home that rests on an organic farm where we can grow our own food and enjoy the flowers and sunshine.
*If you are interested in a personal snapshot of our life on the farm, and would not mind checking out some helpful hints for (in the home, in the heart and in the kitchen) please see below for more info!
