Ruth Marlene Friesen: Welcome!

This site is like Ruthe, the heroine of my novel, Ruthe's Secret Roses

Ruthe is . . .
intimate with God,
prays a lot,
a bleeding heart for the hurting,
a big sister,
rescues friends,
has creative ideas,
likes to give surprise gifts,
loyal to friends,
dreams of love and marriage,
dreams of writing a book
goes the extra mile

So this site offers;
good books to read!
help to become Friends with Jesus,
The One Ideal Real Friend
a cure for loneliness
An Older Sister's Coping Secret
how to pray Panic Prayers,
& regularly/daily
how to grow in faith
Christian mentoring,
how to share your faith

Wow! This little lady gets around doesn't she! The style is unique, not your typical bookstore novel. I like the "stream of consciousness" effect as we see into her thoughts and she talks to her Companion about everything.

18 year old Ruthe supports her family as a telephone operator, but what she really does in her free time is - walk and talk with her Best Friend in an imaginary garden, where her new friends are the roses that they discuss.

Her irratic shifts confuse her family so that she gets away with not telling them of adventures in her free time, where she rescues city strangers and impacts them forever.

Do you wish a miracle-working angel would rescue you from your family problems? Wouldn't you love to have a perfect friend show up when you're in crisis? Ruthe is that kind of friend.

But she makes so many of them, and keeping them a secret from her family back in Kleinstadt has to catch up with her sooner or later. There's Darlin' Bonne and the girls at the Shoppe, Lisa the former prostitute, and Phyllis, known to her high school students as the Fire-Spitting Dragon, to name a few.

What about that mansion given to her? Does she really turn down all those guys? Ruthe is one complicated person, but the more you get to know her, the more you'll think of her as your friend, and you'll want to help her out when she finally grapples with her personal crisis in deceiving her family.


Canadian, Ruth Marlene Friesen, moved home for about 20 years to care for her aged parents. Her mother died in 1997. She was a homemaker and caregiver for her dad, who died in 2007, just four days after he turned 91. He got a fast galloping lung cancer at Christmas and was gone on February 24.

2007 was a very busy year for Ruth as she settled her dad's estate, found a new home in Saskatoon, and moved there to take up many more challenges! Such as becoming a missionary with Western Tract Mission, Inc, and running a new business, taking on clients for web design and tutoring in computers.

"I collect friends the way others collect souvenirs or treasured old antiques," she says. "I look forward to making and helping the new friends.

Your book was a pleasure to read. I loved all the transformations; the physical makeovers, the home decorating, and best of all, the total heart conversions. All are made possible by an unassuming young Mennonite woman who trusts God to lead her and work through her.

There aren't many books written about the Mennonite way of life; particularly having them associating with other faiths, and sharing their faith.
(Kathy Wollf - First Reader)

I love it! Your style of writing is excellent, especially the way you build interest and keep me wanting to read faster and faster. What a wonderful story :-)
