Rita Stella Galieh – Insight

Rather than offer Rita Galieh a standard interview, I asked her to share part of her life with us – either a story about how she met her husband, her testimony of faith, or a story of heritage from her family’s past.  Rita offered to share about her faith.

RitaPicI became a genuine follower of Jesus in my first year at Art School. When I first met my husband at a Youth For Christ meeting, he challenged me by asking did I use my gifts for God. I hadn’t ever thought to as I wasn’t good missionary material, but decided if the Lord could use them I would.

Our God is a wonderfully creative Being. And I feel privileged to use my gifts in His service, writing my own songs and drawing while my husband preaches. I love writing historical novels around the Victorian era, its customs intrigue me. Despite these differences,  people still struggle over the same temptations, conflicts and yearnings to find true love. So through the lives of my characters, I can weave God’s loving forgiveness and promise of salvation to all who follow His Son, Jesus.

In my first Australian novel, Fire in the Rock, I delved into my Jewish roots for my heroine.

Last week I reviewed Rita’s book, Signed Sealed Delivered. You can read it here. Rita, what are you working on now?

 Right now I’m polishing Books II and III in my trilogy, with Book I already published as Signed Sealed Delivered.

Thanks for joining me on my blog, Rita. For more information about Rita and her books, go to http://www.ritastellagalieh.com/.
