This is the bookmark that originally gave the idea for the name of my first blog back in 2012. After a few months into 2020 it’s time to change Mirjam’s blog back to its original: Able to Perform.
The blog is written for Christian women who long to study, live and teach about good things. Its main focus, though, is to remind that God is the only and ultimate source who makes things happen and who is Able to Perform.
By God’s grace, I want to admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands that the Word of God may not be blasphemed. (Titus 2:4-5 NKJV — To read more about the version used and for tips on reading plans and devotionals, please go to God’s Word — The Bible) I also want to remind and encourage the older women to keep on teaching the younger generation.
Writing and Proofreading
My pen name is Mirjam Fels. I’m in my 50s, a helpmeet, homemaker, and writer. Born and raised in Germany, I’m now living in the gorgeous Sunny South East of Ireland. I love studying the Christian faith, biblical womanhood, homemaking, home education, music, Ireland, dog training and writing.
Working as a Translator and Writer
Using the name Mirjam Fels I contributed to Wenn Kinder zu Hause zur Schule gehen (ISBN 9783933372871) by Thomas Mayer and Thomas Schirrmacher VTR. I researched about homeschooling in Germany, translated some texts from English to German, and wrote Zur Frage der Sozialisation.
In 2003 I translated two of the Trailblazer books guides. Unternehmen Auca – Nate Saint and Die Schlacht des Trommlers – Florence Nightingale were both published as eBooks by CLV Publishers.
While working for a Swiss Creation magazine I translated a few articles and wrote a movie review about Expelled.
From 2012 until 2015 I worked as a copywriter, translator, and ghost writer at an online platform. During the last year of this employment I was asked to write and translate texts that were not in line with my Christian faith. That’s why I cancelled my contract with my employer and left the online job.
Since 2015 I’m enjoying full-time homework and developing more homemaking skills. This also freed me of working hours and gave way to my own writing again. I’m currently writing a book about dog training in Christian perspective.
Clarity and Theology Check
My husband supports me by reading every blog post before it is published. He looks out for the language mistakes, asks questions if something has to be clarified and rewritten, and double-checks the accuracy of doctrinal content.
His supportive and beautiful prayers as well as his encouraging words have kept me going in my writing ministry for many years.
