Welcome to Words by Wrose!

I am Willena Rose Flewelling, wife of Ian and mother of seven children, ages 17 to 34. We lost our eldest son, James, in a highway accident in December 2009. Our grown children live nearby, and only our youngest son still lives with us. We live on five acres in the farm country near Edmonton Alberta Canada. We share our home with five (yes, FIVE!) cats.

I love birds, animals, wildflowers, reading, music, crocheting, my pets and my family… NOT in that order. Writing is my passion.

Words by Wrose is my personal blog, where I share a little of who I am as a wife, mom, and writer who is grateful to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for salvation and light for her daily path.

I share family memories, writing tips learned along the way, and simple fiction stories that promote family values and biblical principles — without preaching.

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.” ~ Psalm 19:14
