Paul and Lee Ann Rubsam live in Appleton, Wisconsin. We have two grown daughters. Our older daughter and her husband pastor in Kentucky, and have four children. The younger is actively involved with the International House of Prayer in Kansas City.
We home schooled from 1986 through 2011, until our younger daughter graduated from high school. Neither of our children have ever been schooled outside the home. We've loved every minute of having our girls with us! They've been a joy at every age level, and we are so happy that they both love Jesus passionately.
Paul is a retired letter carrier with the U.S. Postal Service, a career which he greatly enjoyed. He is a graduate of SALT International School of Ministry.
We have both served in lay leadership positions of various sorts within our local church for many years, and are presently focused on prayer and healing ministry within our city/region.
Full Gospel Family Publications has been in existence since 1995. Character Building for Families, Volumes 1 and 2 were our first two books, and we have added to them as the Lord has given us new things to say. Our most recent book for homeschooling families, The Homeschool Guide to Raising Prayer-Filled Kids, is currently available at Amazon as an e-book, and will soon be released to other e-book outlets.
We are Trinitarian, Pentecostal/Charismatic in our beliefs -- and unashamedly so. You will find that Character Building for Families carries a charismatic flavor, although we are not overbearing about it. Our non-charismatic friends can rest assured that the focus of these books is always Jesus. We don't get into trying to teach any doctrine outside of the basic beliefs common to all Christians, and we don't get negative toward anyone. Our booklets on prayer DO emphasize the Baptism in the Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Lee Ann and Paul have a passion for helping intercessors to reach their highest level of effectiveness in prayer. With that goal in mind, we make ourselves available to teach prayer workshops/seminars around the nation. For more info on what we teach or to schedule a seminar in your area, please see Out of the Fire Ministries.
We'd love to have you visit The Character Building for Families Blog, where Lee Ann shares her thoughts on homeschool life, Christian parenting, and character building. You will also find a lot of articles on prayer and Christian growth at Lee Ann's other blog, Out of the Fire. If you would like, you can even subscribe at the blogs to receive each new post right in your e-mail.
We're always open to your comments and concerns, questions, needs for prayer, or whatever else you'd like to share with us. We love hearing from you!
