A Story about God’s Grace in Marriage and the Indispensable Role that a Godly Wife Plays in a Family
Mildren Rosscup (1932–2008) was not credited with any of her husband’s books, nor did she teach any of his classes. But according to Jim Rosscup, Mildred was an indispensable part of their ministry team. Follow along as Jim traces Mildred’s history and how it intertwines with his own history. How they met, how they fell in love, and most importantly, how God used them in ministry. Jim writes to commemorate his wife’s faithful legacy, while at the same time giving a glimpse into what God can do when a family is focused on humbly serving the Lord together.

“I often write about those who’ve been mentors and models to me. Precious Mildred Rosscup was one of the first. Her rich, devoted life was a living illustration of God’s grace! I have benefited from her love as one whose sole desire was to serve God, her husband Jim, her daughters, her sons in law, her grandsons, and all others God placed in her path. I thank God I was blessed to be in her path!”

“Dr. Rosscup beautifully romantically but realistically recounts Christ’s blessings on his fifty-one year union with the bride of his youth. Only the Song of Songs exceeds these deeply affectionate words of appreciation for one’s mate. Just one unfulfilled longing remains to be reunited with her who preceded him to heaven and who is now worshipping with the celestial company surrounding God’s throne.”

— Dr. Richard Mayhue
Former vice president and dean, The Master’s Seminary

“A refreshing account of God’s faithfulness to Mildred Rosscup as she revealed Christlike character in chronic suffering by steadfastly trusting her Lord. Jim Rosscup’s interesting glimpses into his wife’s life show that Christians in ordinary roles can be extraordinarily fruitful for God’s glory. Read this tribute to Mildred from her husband, family, and friends; you will learn lifetime lessons in godly courage and contentment guaranteed!”
