Monica came to Word of Life in March 2022 as the Office Administrative Assistant, she grew up in Herron, Michigan with her parents and six siblings. She has always had heart for truth and ministry which led her to seeking out her faith in Christ during her teenage years. She attended a Community Bible Study held at Word of Life for several years and would go to the services occasionally with her best friend. Through the great communities she interacted with that were made possible through Word of Life she was able to come to a saving faith in the Lord and has been changed ever since!

Getting a call to serve the Lord elsewhere Monica left Alpena and worked in ministry at SpringHill Camps for five years, dabbling in EMS, Fire, a coffee shop and working at a middle and elementary school. She met and married her husband Aaron, and after two years they welcomed their newest member of the family Jethro, a German Shepherd mix. Monica has always enjoyed the outdoors and being in God’s creation and is always up for an adventure! The Rose family often enjoys motorcycle rides, traveling and spending quality time with family and friends both new and old.

Her favorite Bible verses if she had to choose would be these:

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.” Proverbs 19:20

“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
