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.

Head Covering Testimonies

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

Covering Testimony: Judith Batchelor

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hi everyone my name is Judith. My husband Mark and I own a catering business and we have three children, two step children, and six grandchildren–hoping for more. I enjoy craft, mostly spinning, crochet, knitting, etc. I also have a desire to live a simple life and provide a good healthy lifestyle for myself and my family. My biggest desire is to glorify God through all of the above.

For the first eight years of my life I was a MK (Missionary Kid) along with my four siblings and then a PK (Preachers Kid) for the rest. I had good grounding in doctrine and became a Christian in my teenage years.

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

I go to Heritage Baptist Church which is an independent Baptist Church. Our church does not practice head covering so up to a couple of months ago I was the only one who wore a head covering. A new family arrived who believed in head covering so I’m not alone anymore.

Pastoral Testimony (Patrick Smith)

Pastoral Testimonies

Patrick Smith

1) Please introduce yourself and the church you pastor.

My name is Patrick Smith and I’m one of the teaching elders (pastors) at Upper Room Community Church in Chula Vista, California. We’re a small Christian church that believes that the Bible is the word of God and that Jesus is our Living Head.

2) Tell us how you came to believe that head covering is a timeless symbol for today.

Like most Christians in North America I’d learned to dismiss 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 as “cultural”. But about three years ago through Gospel Fellowships I began to be exposed to brothers and sisters that believed head covering was for today. So when I studied 1 Corinthians 11 to teach our small house church I was a little more open. When I got to “because of the angels” (1 Cor 11:10) it stopped me in my tracks.  It was as if the Holy Spirit highlighted that verse as I realized for the first time that there is nothing cultural about the Angels. From there I saw that Paul made other timeless arguments from the creation order, the authority structure in Gods kingdom, and nature.

Covering Testimony: Marcia Rincón

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I am a very happily married wife and a part time teacher. I accepted Christ as my Savior and Lord when I was 10 years old, when my brother led me to Christ. 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. I’m a teacher but actually dedicated to my home and my husband.

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

My husband and I have both been going to Brethren assemblies for years but since moving to this area we found it difficult to find a good church fit. So each Sunday we travel to a nearby town where there is a brethren church. It’s called Emmaus Bible Church. Yes, mostly all the ladies in our fellowship practice it.
