About Rose Noland
I was married to my soul mate for 30 years before losing him to cancer in 2010. We had no physical or adopted children. I am very emotional and easily controlled by my feelings. Yet, because of God’s incredible redeeming and transforming grace, I have joy despite my circumstances! I am totally amazed by that. I believe I am living a miracle every day!
I love to study the Bible and share with others what I have learned. I am crazy about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Growing in my intimacy with Him is the most important thing to me.
I have over 25 years’ experience teaching and discipling women. I have led small group Bible studies, discipled women one-on-one and have headed the women’s discipling ministry at my church. I have spoken at various women’s events, retreats, and outreaches to the homeless and imprisoned.
I also teach women to manage and use their emotions for God’s glory, instead of being dominated by them through small workshops and seminars.
Lastly, I’ve written over nine books, including the award-winning allegory: The Master’s Garden—An Allegory of Abiding in the Vine and a contributing author to Writer’s Success Secrets, a Wall Street Journal Best Seller in December 2022.
After becoming a Christian, I didn’t have a mentor and I struggled for many years. That’s why I feel so strongly about discipleship. I want to decrease the amount of time it takes for you to know the sweet fellowship of walking rightly with your Savior.
I know how to communicate God’s truths in a way that will teach you to implement them specifically to where you are right now in your journey with God. I feel compelled to pass on the truths of how I achieved this abundant life to anyone who will listen. I hope that includes you. I want you to experience the joyous, meaningful, exciting, and secure life that Jesus Christ desires for you.
MY SALVATION TESTIMONY
I was brought up in a mainline Christian home. I went to church every Sunday but got nothing out of it. I got turned off to God because all I saw was hypocrisy. So, by the time I went to college, I bought into the evolution lie and stopped believing that God existed.
I was not a happy person. I felt unfulfilled, unloved, and insignificant. As life went on, I met and married my soulmate, had a nice home, a decent job, but something was still missing. “Is this all there is?” I thought.
But God knew my longing and He orchestrated events where I found myself in business with some vibrant Christians. At first, I didn’t listen when they told me about Jesus. But for over a year the Lord hounded me; He kept chipping away at the foundation of my wrong beliefs until I finally began to wonder if I was believing a lie.
One day while driving to work, I cried out, “God, if You really do exist, I want to believe in You. Show me.” And He did! For soon after I heard the truth of the gospel and realized Jesus was what I had been looking for all my life. My heart was finally open to the truth, and God opened my eyes to His truth. I love that line in the hymn, “Amazing Grace”— “I once was blind, but now I see”—because that describes me!
My life has never been the same since that day thirty-eight years ago. I am a completely different person. When I look back over my life, I don’t even recognize the old Rose.
Oh, I’m still a very emotional yoyo, still have problems like everyone else, still fall so short of God’s perfection. But I know that I am forgiven because I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. By faith I have confessed and repented of my sins and I am living in a relationship with the Creator and Lover of my soul. I know that I am eternally secure in His love. I know that I will be in heaven when I die.
I am also living the abundant life that Jesus promised in John 10:10—a life of joy, peace, and contentment. I no longer feel insignificant or unloved.
In response to God’s incredible sacrificial love, I am living the only way that makes sense—forever grateful, completely devoted, and obsessed with telling others about God so that He may be glorified. And let me tell you—He is so worth it!
Rose is an inspiration to all who have the privilege to know her! She shares her Christian faith in a beautiful way with her insightful books and her positive, energetic personality.
Rose is an engaging “bundle of energy” whose purpose is to bring the message of Jesus to all in attendance. Her presentation was dynamic and attention-grabbing as she explained to us both in word and photos how her “kitties taught her lessons about God.” Going from “kitty humor” to everyday application on how to be in a relationship with Jesus just flowed as she managed to bring us all from laughter to a clear understanding of how Jesus is worth it in our everyday lives. I would highly recommend Rose as a phenomenal speaker for your next group meeting. We were truly blessed to have her not only speak but also motivate us in our daily walk with Jesus.

When I became a new Christian I didn’t know what to do next. I floundered for many years in my walk with Christ. But now I understand much better how to rightly relate with God. I know what my role is as well as God’s. Rose has discipled me for over a year using her book “Our Knowable God.” She is an excellent teacher who helps me to apply the information I learn to my everyday life. She gives wonderful illustrations from the Bible and her own experiences. She is also very open about her own struggles, and so gives me a lot of hope. I always come away from our sessions motivated and uplifted—like we both just met with God during our discussion. Rose’s discipleship, books, and blogs have taken me leaps and bounds in my intimacy with the Lord!
Rose is able to explain concepts and ideas in a warm and personal way; making them easy to understand and relate to in a “where the rubber meets the road” sort of way. I appreciate her extensive use and knowledge of Scripture. She has filled in some key holes in my biblical understanding. As a result of my discipling time with Rose my relationship with the Lord is sweeter, I’m more aware of His presence, and His word has become increasingly beautiful. I’m depending upon Him more often—and sooner. I find myself more at peace even during those frazzling crazy times.
Being discipled has also helped me with my marriage because my expectations about God, my husband, and even myself have changed. It’s priceless to be able to discover the precious truths about my God. Rose has helped me do just that.
I have known Rose Noland for about 6 years. She is a most sincere Christian. Rose has experienced many of life’s difficulties and teaches others to look at their difficulties through God’s eyes as revealed in the Bible. She freely shares her experiences and explains how she has applied God’s Word. Rose is committed to her Bible quiet time each morning. That is the only time she will not be available to her friends.
Rose has authored several biblical books, giving many concrete examples and specific instances from her own life. She writes about God’s characteristics, how God blesses us, helps us to fight our spiritual battles, and gives us strength and inspiration through all of life’s challenges. If you need to hear the truth on one of life’s difficult decisions, Rose is there for you. She speaks God’s truth with authority, compassion, and clarity.
Rose Noland’s passion for Jesus Christ and her earnest desire to share her faith are a driving force in her life and ministry. Rose’s energetic personality fuels both her interpersonal relationships and her public speaking. In a word, Rose is an encourager. She is steadfastly committed to the truth of Scripture and the value of living life according to its precepts. I eagerly recommend Rose Noland and He’s So Worth It Ministries to anyone interested in learning more about what it means to live an abundant, joy-filled life.
I have known Rose for about 15 years. She has always been a bubbly, on fire for the Lord kind of person. She speaks so much from her heart and her love for our Savior. I can always count on her to fill in as a speaker at the Karis home (a homeless women’s shelter), where she has served since 2003. She has published two books, working very diligently on each of them. She has a very discerning wisdom about her and can portray this in her writings as well as her speaking engagements. I have taken a few of her Bible studies and have learned a great deal under her instruction. She is a very dedicated, very wise woman of God whom I have had the privilege of calling my friend.
I’ve only known Rose for a few months, having attended 1 Bible Study together, and then attended another on her book, On My Father’s Lap – which she facilitated. And what a blessing she has been to me! Her love for Christ permeates her very being, and her enthusiasm for the gospel is a great inspiration. I loved her informal facilitation style, and her use of her personal experience to teach Biblical principles. I highly recommend reading her books, and at any opportunity, hearing her speak.
