Who is Lady Rose?
Through the pages of the magazine, we want to impart restoration in the identity of women. Our heart’s desire is to bring inspiration to women straight from the Word of God. We want to make an impact in the media to teach women that their identity is not on the outside, but on the inside. We aim to bring a fresh view to the media and the influence it has on women. Currently, the media’s focus is to make women aware of their physical beauty; we want to make women aware of their inner beauty and their purpose in Christ. Beauty from the inside out. We teach women the truth of the Word and empower them to be an influence for the Kingdom of God. We minister across nations at women’s conferences and we also host our own conferences. Lady Rose Ministries falls under the umbrella of Barach Tamid International Ministries.
Patricia’s debut anthology was published in 2015. Since then four other anthologies have seen the light. Three of her anthologies are in English and two are in Afrikaans. She has also published a children’s colouring book (for ages between 3-8 years), in both of these languages. Her latest anthology, ERA (2018), won the second prize for an anthology at Ink Skryf in Afrikaans’ prestige gala event.
Her love of language and poetry are portrayed in these anthologies and she always leaves a piece of herself behind in every book. Patricia has been proofreading and translating for the past three years.
Her love of Christ can be seen in many of her poems. Her abilities are gifted from God. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
