Hi! My name is Bev Rihtarchik. I have been married for over seven years to my wonderful, godly husband. He stole my heart so, I stole his name. We have two adult children and just said farewell to our third fur-baby, Topper, our beloved beagle.
I became a Christ follower at the age of 13, and though I've persevered through many seasons of suffering, God has been true to His promise of never forsaking me. I have struggled for many years with an anxiety disorder (OCD) and depression. I have come to accept, and yes, even embrace this "thorn in my side" because it always brings me back to a daily reliance and dependence on God. Truly, apart from Him, I can do nothing! (John 15:5)
I was sidelined for six years with six successive sugeries. Bored to tears and climbing the wall, I heeded God's nudge to begin writing again. My little blog Walking Well With God navigated it's way to the laptop of a young Christian man, halfway around the globe, who had just started a small homeschool for impoverished and persecuted children. From that humble seed, Redeemer Christian Foundation, Inc. was born. Check out the MISSIONS tab for more information on our school, vocational sewing program, and spiritual outreach in the community we serve in Southern Asia.
Having lived in the south for over twenty years, I consider myself a southern gal, but my blood still bleeds black and gold for my Pittsburgh sports teams.
I've always been a writer at heart and am honored and humbled to have you here at my blog! These are not my words, but God speaking through me. My prayer is that the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart will be acceptable in His sight.
