About us

Welcome to The Ruth Experience!
We're glad you're here!

Here's a bit about us: Kristin, Kendra, and Julie are three friends whose lives are intertwined as writers, speakers, wives, moms, and world-changers.  They believe in the immense power of authentic community and of intentionally living one’s faith out loud through simple acts of kindness.

Now, it's your turn: Do you have a story to share? We'd love to hear from you! We're always looking for guest contributorsIf you'd like to be considered, please fill out the following form and we will respond via email with more details.

Finally, here are the nitty-gritty details of each of TRE's contributors:

Julie Fisk first discovered her passion for teaching and empowering others as a practicing attorney. She loves focusing that passion on encouraging women in their individual faith journeys through writing, speaking, and in quiet conversation over steaming cups of coffee. She and her husband are committed to living out the commandment to love God and love others in their daily lives and are raising their children to do the same through intentional kindness. They succeed, fail, and rely upon Christ and his grace to fill in their gaps.

Julie loves trotting the globe with her family, pulling weeds in her heirloom-vegetable garden, running 5k races (only if she is running with friends), and tromping through the woods with her children and their rescue dog, Peanut.

Kendra Roehl is described by her father as a “defender of the weak,” and is always looking for those who fall through the gaps and are in need of help. Her natural inclination towards the hurting has segued into first a career as a clinical social worker, then a foster and adoptive mom, and now a writer and speaker. She and her cohorts believe wholeheartedly that loving God and others should shape all aspects of their lives and are certain that small acts of kindness can truly change the world. Kendra writes and speaks regularly in her community and home church, as well as volunteers as an advisor for Bridging the Gap, a Christian women’s organization in Minnesota that offers godly support to women through resources, conferences, and leadership development. Kendra loves lazy evenings at home with her family, playing spirited card games with friends and neighbors, and dreaming about trips to take with her husband. You can find Kendra writing honestly about topics such as marriage, motherhood, foster care and adoption, and social justice at The Ruth Experience.

Kristin Demery is married to her best friend, Tim, and the mom of two lovable hooligans. A jill-of-all-trades with a background in journalism, Kristin’s done everything from managing a social network site for mothers to working as an editorial assistant for an academic journal. Kristin is passionate about recognizing redemption in the everyday and living a life of kindness and generosity. A grammar geek and Jane Austen addict, Kristin loves semi-colons, scarves, and sappy romance novels. She recently finished her master’s degree in English, in which her capstone essay focused on male hysteria in Richard Marsh’s The Beetle. You can find Kristin writing about mistakes, motherhood, and the power of grace on TRE.
