Former Bad Girl, grateful for the grace God offers. Happy wife of Bill, one of the Good Guys. Proud mom of two grown-up kids with tender hearts. Lame housekeeper. Marginal cook. Pitiful gardener. Stuff I love? Encouraging my sisters in Christ—across the page, from the platform, online, in person. Unpacking Scripture. Traveling wherever God leads. Listening to his heart. Leaning into his embrace.

I recorded four DVDs in 1999 (wow! last century!) that included some biblical content and a whole lot of humor:

"One Size Fits All" and Other Fables
Help! I'm Laughing and I Can't Get Up
Only Angels Can Wing It, the Rest of Us Have to Practice
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Have I Got News for You

The messages were based on books of mine released in the '90s, and the videos were only released on VHS. By the time we all switched to DVDs, the videos were out of print for good. So, for that matter, are the books. Just the way things work in publishing.

Sadly, I don't have a single copy on my shelves and have not found them available anywhere online.

My current DVDs include a few splashes of humor but are definitely aimed at teaching the Bible. After I recorded those four funny videos, God said, "Well done, but enough of that. Here's what I have next for you!" So grateful He keeps leading me in new directions.

In the meantime, my speaking buddies Anita Renfroe and Chonda Pierece have lots of very funny videos ready to amuse you. Thanks for reaching out, and much joy to you, Rose!(less)
