INTERVIEW WITH JULIET ROSSITER FROM DEVOTION BY MARIANNE EVANS

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Juliet Rossiter.  Welcome, Juliet!  I'm so glad you stopped by.  We're looking forward to getting to know you a little better.

1.  Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know. 

Well, I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it, but...well...the night I met my husband, Kellen, I accidentally spilled champagne down the front of his suit! Let's just say I'm not the world's most graceful catering assistant!

2.  What do you do to relax? 

I love to take my Bible, or whatever book I might be reading, to the back patio and savor the aromas, birdsong and leaf chatter of my back yard in Franklin, Tennessee.

3.  What is your biggest fear?

Actually, I lived it---and by God's grace alone I survived it. A dear author friend of mine, Marianne Evans, chronicled this season of my life in the pages of her book Devotion.


4.  What gives you the greatest joy?

Oh, that's so easy!! My daughter Brittany! She's such a joy! She fills my heart and soul with the sureness of God's grace and presence!!!

5.  What drives you crazy?

::giggles:: For good and for bad, my romantic, electric, funny, sweet, intense and magnetic husband Kellen Rossiter.

6.  What three things are most important to you.

My faith, my marriage, my family.

7.  If you could go back and meet one historical person, who would it be and why? 

I would love to take a trip to the Holy Land and walk hand-in-hand with Jesus. He has seen me through so much. I would love to spend a few hours with Him and ask him questions about my life. I'd like to ask Him how I've done with the gifts He has given me and perhaps see a bigger view of how His plan played out in my life.

8.  What is one thing you'd like to change about yourself? 

I'd like to learn not to over-commit myself and stay focused on the three things I mentioned above that are so important to me: Faith, family and marriage. Becoming re-attuned to those gifts during the past year has worked miracles and wonders in my life!!

9.  What character quality do think is most important?

HONESTY. Even in the darkest of times, honesty is a pathway to so many good things!

10.  What person had the greatest influence on your life?

My mom, of course - she's so sweet and supportive, and there's my oldest sister, Marlene. Other than them, my husband Kellen has the greatest influence in my life. I've learned so much about life, and love, through the course of living out our marriage and maintaining the commitment we've made to one another.

Thanks for letting me visit your wonderful blog, Sherry! If you're ever in Nashville, you have an open-door invitation at our home!!!

Thank you, Juliet!  And thanks again for visiting with us today.  Below you'll find information about Marianne Evan's latest book, DEVOTION, and some handy links you'll want to be sure to check out!

From This Day Forward

Christian Music agent Kellen Rossiter has everything he ever wanted: A-list clients from coast to coast, a loving wife who honors and respects him, and a faith life that’s never wavered—until now.

Juliet Rossiter has the perfect life: a rewarding schedule serving the underprivileged, a husband who loves her as Christ loved the church, and a blessed future as a mother—at least that's what she thinks.


For Better or Worse

But what happens when their rock-solid marriage begins to crumble under the weight of an unexpected and powerful temptation?  How does love survive when its foundation is shaken?

'Til Death Do Us Part


When human frailty and the allure of sin deal a harsh blow to their relationship, it will take more than love to mend the shattered trust and heartbreak. It will take a lifetime of devotion.
