Covering Testimony: Deborah F.

Name: Deborah F.Age: 39Location: Central VirginiaStarted Covering: Feb 2015

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hello! My name is Deborah, I am a stay at home wife and home-schooling mother of three (ages 11, 9, and 5), who resides in central Virginia. When school is done for the day, I sporadically work from home on graphic design and websites as co-owner of silvermaplemedia.com. I also enjoy digitally designing religiously-themed word art in my spare time. When I am not on the computer, I fancy playing the piano, which is a fulfillment of a life long dream. (I began learning at the same time my oldest child started lessons 6 years ago.) I occasionally have opportunity to sculpt with fondant for special occasion cakes as well, which is loads of fun!

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it.

I attend a Reformed Baptist Church in Central VA, which adheres to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of faith. We are a small rural church of only 30 members. As such, we are like one big family. Only one other wife practices head covering in our church and her family just moved here in 2014. The Lord used her as the catalyst to my conviction. Read more

Covering Testimony: Hannah Falanga

Name: Hannah FalangaAge: 24Location: New Mexico, USAStarted Covering: 4 or 5 years ago

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I am a homemaker. I feel the Lord has called me to be this, as an example of someone who can, Lord willing, live well in such a setting—not trapped, not unfulfilled, not even unsuccessful, but rather someone who is following the Lord’s extremely personal calling for her life. I am a young lady in search of the set-apart life, living in hope of eternal life in Christ Jesus, governed by my Lord Jesus, living my life for the Lord by being an artist, fiber artist (crocheting and knitting), cook and baker, writer and blogger.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it.

I go to church at my local Calvary Chapel. It is a Bible upholding, traditional marriage teaching, pro-life loving, God fearing church which I am blessed to be a part of. The teaching there is not only sound, but challenging and in-depth. I am currently the only lady (or nearly the only—the other woman may be in another service) to wear a headcovering. Read more

Covering Testimony: Mindy Sue

Name: Mindy SueAge: 29Location: Georgia, USAStarted Covering: August 2011

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

My name is Mindy Sue. I am a wife and a stay-at-home mom to two little boys (and another baby coming in March!). I love to sew and create many other crafts from recycled materials although most of my time these days is spent cooking, cleaning and teaching the ABC’s. I look forward to working in the vegetable garden when the weather’s nice and we hope to have livestock soon, too (fresh eggs, yum!). When I’m not pregnant [which isn’t very often:)] I like to help my husband with landscaping and home repairs and anything that will get my hands dirty and work up a good sweat.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it.

My family has recently started a local Church of Christ assembly. My husband and I both have been going to Baptist churches for years but since moving to this area and having difficulty finding a good fit in a Baptist Church we decided to try a Church of Christ. Although there are a few theological differences we appreciate their exegetical teaching and their commitment to adhere to God’s word. As far as I can tell, I am the only one who wears a head covering. Read more

Covering Testimony: Elizabeth Wiser

Name: Elizabeth WiserAge: 26Location: Beer Sheva, IsraelStarted Covering: July 2011

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I’m a second year American medical student studying abroad in Israel. Apparently choosing to study in Israel and not being Jewish is considered an unusual decision by both people back home and here in the land. But my school focuses on global health and gives us opportunities to work with Bedouins, African refugees, and Jewish immigrants from all over the world in addition to a global clerkship: which is perfect for me since I want to do medical missions in the future. Why should I wait another 5 or 10 years to learn how to thrive in a foreign culture where I don’t know the language and don’t have any contacts when I can learn now? If you’re still confused and shocked by my choice, just remember that I’m living in the same city in which Abraham lived. And every time the Bible talks about the south, or the wilderness, or the Negev, I can just look out my window, and I know exactly what it looks and feels like. Read more

Covering Testimony: Irina Glazkova

Name: Irina GlazkovaAge: 25Location: St. John's, NL, CanadaStarted Covering: October 2010

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hi, my name is Irina Glazkova and I’m a single, Christian woman who is originally from Russia. I’ve been in Canada since September 2007. Before that, I lived in the USA for 11 months as an exchange student. I accepted Lord Jesus as savior at the age of 12 after searching through many different philosophies. During my childhood and early teens I had been bullied a lot mostly because I was born with deformed limbs and I have had seven surgeries. When I was born, doctors tried to convince my mom to leave me at the hospital because I was very sick and had physical deformities. Sadly, this is a common practice in Russia and in most post-Soviet countries. My mom refused. She sacrificed so much for my well-being. My biggest dream is to see my family come to Salvation. Bullying led me to search for the truth. I just couldn’t come to terms that there was no justice. I used to go with my mom to a Russian Orthodox church. However, I was conflicted by praying to saints, kneeling in front of icons and many other things. While in the United States I lived in Baptist pastor’s family. This is where my faith began to grow. I was seventeen years old at this point. While living in the United States I considered studying in Canada. A lady from my current church (Faith Bible Chapel) came to the USA for her son’s graduation. In addition, Memorial University of Newfoundland gave me an entrance scholarship. The Lord lead me here to Newfoundland. I enjoy hikes, outdoors, crafts, reading, writing, singing and watching clouds. Read more
