About me

Hello!  My name is Tyler Dawn Rosenquist!  I am a 40-something, adoptive, homeschooling mother of 14 year old twins, one special needs, and a wife of over 24 years to my beloved and brilliant husband Mark. I am also the only employee of Ancient Bridge Publishing, where I publish serious Bible Curriculum for entire families under the name Context for Kids, as well as few grownup books.

 

I became a Christian in January 1999 after a week-long knock down drag out battle with God, after which I surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the savior of my life.  In June 2011, on the day before Pentecost, God challenged me about how I was living my life and challenged me to get to know Him as He is as revealed through His own words, which has not always necessarily been who I was taught He is.

I like to say that Jesus Christ saved my life, and then Yeshua (His given Name) Messiah taught me how to live that life.

I am a singer, an avid student of the the Word in it’s historical context, and a prolific writer.  I have published three books – the first two were The Bridge: Crossing Over Into the Fullness of Covenant Life, and King, Kingdom, Citizen: His Reign and Our Identity. My third book is the beginning of a series designed to teach entire families the ancient Near Eastern and First Century context of the Scriptures – Context for Kids Vol 1: Honor and Shame in the Bible. I followed it up with Ten Commandments and the Covenants of Promise for ages 10 and up, and Context for Adults: Sexuality, Social Identity, and Kinship Relations in the Bible for teens and up. Coming soon is Context for Kids Volume 4: Image-bearing, Idolatry and the New Covenant in the Bible.

All are available on Amazon Kindle and in Paperback or from me personally if you want to buy in bulk.

I also have two youtube channels – one for adults and the other for children and families. Check out the links on my homepage.

My email address is thebestoftimesisnow@yahoo.com

My new glasses and my book finally arrived!

    1. You’re welcome! I learned a lot doing it as well – makes such a big difference. I am studying now for Purim and plan on doing some bigger Passover and Shavuot/Pentecost series as well for the kids

  8. I just wanted to say thank you. As a believer in Yeshua, and learning Torah, I’ve seen my children want to dive head first into obeying YHWH, but I struggle trying to explain it in a way they get. Honor and Shame was what we needed. The scriptures are coming alive to all of us, and it helps us understand other cultures around the world. We’ve been watching your series on Hanukkah, and it’s been amazing to listen to them and their G-D given wisdom on the topics. You have an anointing on you to explain things in a simple way, but it’s also deep and meaty. It makes us dig more into the scriptures to see more examples, to see what YHWH meant and not what the church has taught. It’s started a fire in their hearts to know more, and while I know you can’t take credit for the fire of the Ruach, your words and your way with them have fanned the flames. I write all of this to just say thank you, and we can’t wait for more videos and books to come out.

    1. Thanks so much – I get so little feedback from parents that sometimes I wonder if any kids are watching at all 🙂 definitely needed to hear that this morning

      1. I did write a HUGE positive report on Amazon, on the Honor and Shame book. I know that everyone is on a different spiritual level, in this journey with Yeshua, but I can only pray that the words He led you to write will start the next generation on the path of righteousness. You have 3 kids, in Kansas, that are learning a ton from you- so thank you.

  9. Tyler, I will admit, I was a little put off when I first came across your blog regarding HR members moving back into the church but boy was pleasantly surprised! First, let me share how I came across your blog. I too, have been called to “online ministry”. YHWH has given me the gift of knowledge and wants me to share it. I was called to do this long ago but was too wrapped up in the world and work. That has since changed and I am taking the leap and doing what YHWH wants me to do. This led me to research on how to create a successful blog, specifically one regarding HR-type beliefs and your post showed up in the results. I find many results to be offensive as many results are negative in tone. Yours seemed to me that it could have gone either way on the “offensive to Torah believers” scale. Admittedly, I went on the defensive before I even started reading what you had to say but that quickly changed when I learned that you were not talking against Torah but for it! HALLELUYAH!

    Personally, I think of HR as a general term for someone who walks in Torah. Unfortunately, mankind seems to be obsessed with labels for every style of belief resulting in several types of HR believers, something no different from how we ended up with thousands of types of Christianity. I am still what the Bible calls a “Christian”. What I am not, is what the modern church calls a Christian because I observe Torah. It’s no wonder YAH’s people are so divided!

    I would like to “follow” you and ask that if you wouldn’t mind, offer up prayers to keep me on HIS path on this journey. If you have any advice on how to accomplish YAH’s request in this fallen world, I would be most grateful; especially in the way of networking with other believers. I am TERRIBLE at networking LOL.

    Shabbat Shalom, Tyler and the rest of the Rosenquist family! May YHWH continue to bless you and keep you in HIS care while you continue to do HIS Will in leading others to HIM through Yeshua and Torah.

    1. I will definitely pray for you – as for networking, ugh, I am horrible at that. I put up my stuff on facebook on my own wall and anyone who sees it sees it and whoever doesn’t see it doesn’t see it lol. I call myself a Christian too; actually, I call myself a Jewish Christian because, even though it is a bad label, there are no good ones!

      Whatever God’s job for you, it will be uniquely yours and so unless it is a carbon copy of mine, I can be of little help because all I know how to do is my job – however, our primary vocation from God is all the same – learn to be His image bearers on this earth by becoming conformed to His expressed character in Yeshua. That’s my primary focus, the rest is just teaching and that is next to useless if my character misrepresents God to the world. Hebrew Roots is obsessed with false images – we need to be more obsessed with not acting like false images. Shalom Jenna and thanks for reaching out.
