Marie Valle Covering Testimony

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hello everyone. My name is Marie. After meeting and marrying the love of my life at our Assembly of God undergraduate college, I followed my husband on his journey to reformed Christianity during his years in seminary. A few months after he graduated, with a newborn in tow, we moved hundreds of miles from family and friends to a church that called Angelo to be their pastor in Alexandria, Pennsylvania. We’ve been in Alexandria for almost three years now and have since added another baby to the mix. I’m a stay-at-home mom to Jonathan (3) and Eliana (almost 1), along with all the responsibilities that come with being the pastor’s wife in a small county church. I love to cook & bake, especially with my son, tickle my daughter and watch lame superhero shows with my husband. Read more

Covering Testimony: Kristi Bothur

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

My name is Kristi Bothur. I am 45 years old, and the wife of a bivocational pastor. My husband and I have been married for thirteen years, and we have two children, ages 7 and 3, as well as five we will meet in Heaven whom we lost during pregnancy. In addition to our church ministry, we have a ministry called Naomi’s Circle that reaches out to other parents going through pregnancy or infant loss. We also homeschool, and I write on my own blog called “This Side of Heaven,” as well as two collaborative ones: one for pregnancy after loss and one that is a local moms blog.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it. Do others practice headcovering there?

I attend two churches, both Southern Baptist. My husband is the pastor of South Beltline Baptist Church, a small, older inner city church. Until recently, our children were the only ones there, and so we are also active members of Spring Valley Baptist, a larger church that we have attended since we got married. I do not know of any others who practice headcovering at either church. Read more

Rachel Ernst

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

My name is Rachel Ernst and I am a newlywed army wife living in South Korea.  I come from South Carolina but spent my last two years in the US nannying in Washington, DC, where I met my husband, Richard.  I studied History and Music in college, and am currently pursuing a Masters in Biblical Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary online, while also working part time at a remote editing job.  I grew up in the church, but began to grow rapidly in my faith in high school and college.  I took a year off in college and spent six months of that year serving at a Gospel-teaching school for beggar girls in South Asia, an experience which changed my life forever.  I have a heart for Muslim women, and love seeing them liberated and empowered by the love of Christ.

Covering Testimony: Bonnie Larsen

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I am a home school mom to two brilliant teenage boys. I am married to an amazing man who is a wonderful leader and makes me smile everyday. We share our home with two reptiles, a corn snake and a Russian tortoise, and two Great Danes. (And, yes, that means a lot of hair and dog drool.) I enjoy creating art, crocheting, making soap, and playing the harp. I absolutely love doing anything together with my family whether it’s playing games, watching movies, or running K5’s.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it. Do others practice headcovering there?

I attend River of Life, a small non-denominational church. No one there practices head covering other than me; however, the pastor feels that it is biblically based and allows freedom of conscience in the matter. Read more

Name: Angela D. | Age: 19 | Location: Ontario, Canada | Starting Covering: April 2015


Covering Testimony: Angela Dekker

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hello! I am a 2nd year University student. I have completed a year of Bible College and have gone on two missions trips. I have a great heart for serving believers and nonbelievers. It is my hope and dream to lift up and encourage believers within Canada and across borders to grow even deeper into our Saviour.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it. Do others practice headcovering there?

I started attending an independent Church this last spring that is very much like the Brethren denomination. Almost every woman covers her head in church with a mantilla, scarf, hat, or head wrap style. It’s not mandatory for women to cover their head if they’re only casually attending. However, If you want to become a member head covering is one of their imperative beliefs. Read more
