Madelyn Rose, Author
Rose is a Christian and wife first, apologist and writer second. Her alma mater is Concordia University-Ann Arbor, graduating with a Bachelors in English and a minor in Art. Rose loves to do research, however, within the fields of history, the sciences, literature, art, and Scriptural studies. If she is not writing, Rose is taking care of her husband, reading, playing music, or painting some new landscape. If housewife counts as a career, she could ask for nothing better to pursue in life as a Christian woman. Besides writing various research papers and posts for multiple blogs, Rose has written and is currently working on a collection of short stories, most of which hold a greater, allegorical message for current or personal events. Her prize project, though, is her book that discusses the Table of Nations (Genesis 10), its relation to the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2), and the connection of all people both genetically and spiritually (Acts 17:26, Ephesians 3:6). Her goal in life, together with serving her family, is to live a life worthy of her calling in Christ by using her gifts to the glory of God.
