Meet the Words for Wives Team
Maggie Rickert: Maggie was inspired to start Words for Wives after a particular tough week in marriage. She was drawn to a passage in Titus 2, from the bible, that talks about the older women teaching the younger women to love their husbands and children. Maggie has been married for 6 years and proud mom of two boys for three years. Maggie thrives off of quality time with her family, adventuring outside, cooking, & finding time with her friends.
Kristen Schelvan: Kristen is a native Montana girl and has been married to her best friend for almost twelve years. Her superhero skill of sleeping on command (really, she can fall asleep anywhere) comes in handy as she is mama to three sweet and spunky little girls. With a background in architecture, she loves design, decorating, and house-hunting. As her girls were born, her hobbies quickly changed to cleaning, baking, organizing and making (dinner). Kristen loves hiking with her husband and you’ll often find them coaxing or carrying little people up a small mountain. She has a deep passion for God’s Word – especially equipping women to learn how to study scripture for themselves, and has a desire to see young women mentored and discipled.
Leslie Padgett: Leslie is a another Californian-turned-Montanan, having moved three years ago. She and her husband of nearly two decades moved with their daughter and son and found a different (and much colder) way of life. She is a blogger, writer, and speaker on faith and the things with which women struggle most. Control, shame, and fear are just a few issues with which she has wrestled. And therefore, freedom, grace and the intimate love of Jesus are themes to which she returns again and again. She is terrible at housecleaning, hopelessly in love with books, and great at picking restaurants. She will use any excuse to meet you for coffee, but will order iced tea instead. Leslie’s greatest desires are to build up her husband, equip her children with truth, and to unburden the hearts of women who so desperately need a lighter load to bear.
Michelle Quigley: Michelle Quigley is originally from Seattle, Washington. She moved to Montana in 1998 to work for a non-profit organization called Youth With A Mission (YWAM), which allowed her to travel and share God’s story in over 35 different countries. She moved to Bozeman MT, after living in South Africa in 2009, with her husband Paul and their children, Capri and Emmett. She absolutely loves living and raising her family in this beautiful place. She enjoys travel, people, coffee and exploring the great outdoors. She loves sharing who God is with others, teaching, hearing God’s voice and discovering how to live life in abundance within community. Her passion is to pour into and empower women to walk in their God given identities and His purposes.
Rhiannon Horsley: Rhiannon is an East Coast girl loving life in Montana. She wears many hats these days: Christ follower, wife of 10 years, mama to two babies turned big girls, and a professional photographer at Simple Reflections Photography. Rhiannon loves adventure, being outdoors, the beach, chai lattes, and Summer days.
