Hello and welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m Emily Rose, and I live – or rather, thrive – amidst the flat farmland of Indiana with my family. There are four of us: Dad, Mum, Breezy, and me, and together we serve an amazing God.
Here on my blog I share about the joys of home, running cottage industries with my family, growing in the Lord, gluten-free recipes, creating things with my hands, etc., but ultimately to proclaim the Gospel of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
I’m quite convinced that hospitality is one of the most delightful outpourings of love and sources of encouragement in life. Oh, and I like to keep a smile near at hand, ready to add an ounce of cheer.
Because of Christ,
Emily Rose aka “Rosey Bird”
P.S. Why “Rosey Bird”? My late grandpa always called me Tweety Bird, which suited my round cheeks quite nicely. Having since grown into my cheeks, a little update of the name was in order. So, Rosey Bird incorporates both his nickname for me and my middle name Rose.
Our family’s company is Noble Rose Press, through which we publish the Daughters of His Story Paper Dolls and The Family Treasure Coloring Book, and The Children’s Titanic Paper Dolls created by my sister and me. In November 2011, we started the Clementine Pattern Co., where we sell embroidery patterns and kits. My dear mum blogs at Resolved to Be; my dear sister blogs at A Bowl of Moss & Pebbles, and sells prints of her delightful artwork in her Etsy shop.
“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession,
and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere.”
—II Corinthians 2:14
