About

Mirjam Fels

Mirjam Fels is my pen name. I’m in my 50s, a help meet, keeper at home, former homeschool mom, and a writer. Born and raised in Germany, I’m now living in the gorgeous Sunny South East of Ireland. I love studying the Word of God, especially to find out more about biblical womanhood, marriage, training up and teaching children at home, keeping and guarding the home, and worship music like psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Some of my other hobbies are crochet, dog training, knitting, and sewing—not necessarily in that particular order.

Working as a Translator and Writer

I researched for homeschool families and organizations in Germany, translated several texts from English to German for the homeschool community, contributed part of the chapter on socialization for the book Wenn Kinder zu Hause zur Schule gehen, and wrote a few articles about homeschooling and its situation in Germany.

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 able to spend more time studying and teaching God’s Word at home again. Discontinuing the work for the online employer 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.

Mirjam’s Blog

MirjamFels.com is the website of the author called Mirjam Fels—studying, teaching and writing at home. On my blog I’ll share my experience, give tips on how-to study, teach, and write, and keep you updated about my writing projects.

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.

I’m delighted to share with you that he is also an author and will also write blog posts throughout the year which will be announced and published on the Able to Perform blog.

The Able to Perform blog is a devotional written  for the Christian family.

The idea for the name of the Able to Perform Devotional originally came from the bookmark you see on the left.
