Mirjam Fels is my pen name. I’m in my 50s, a helpmeet, homemaker, homeschool mom, and 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, homemaking, home education, and music (for worship). 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 have written Zur Frage der Sozialisation (About the Question of Socialization) which is part of the book Wenn Kinder zu Hause zur Schule gehen (ISBN 9783933372871) last published in 2004.
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 homekeeping while developing more of my homemaking skills. This also frees me of working hours and makes a way for me to concentrate on my blog and my own book 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.
