April Java JOY:  Bloom Where You're Planted

For many Christians working in the "secular" marketplace, the grass looks a lot greener on the other side of the fence in the world of "full-time ministry."  At our April Java JOY, JOY blogger and local AVON lady Kristy Rose will talk about how every flower in God's garden has a purpose and a ministry, regardless of one's occupation. We'll take a look at what the Bible says about work -- after all, Jesus was a carpenter -- and hear some heartwarming tales from the land of lipstick.

Speaker Bio:

Kristy Rose is a Gen X homeschooling mom who sells Avon to support her writing habit. She grew up in a Christian home in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

In 2006, God transplanted her to North Dakota, where she lives with her husband, son, daughter and 3-pound poodle. Moving to the state her great-grandparents homesteaded in 1903, and the ensuing adventures on the prairie, have deepened her faith and given her a heart-felt understanding of God's amazing mercy and grace.

Kristy is fulfilling a childhood dream of being a writer and a speaker and hopes her words encourage, edify and inspire you. You can get her take on pretty much everything
