About KBR Ministries

Encouraging Girls to Grow in their Walk with Christ

The heart of KBR MInistries is to encourage young ladies to grow in their walk with Christ. We are thrilled to have you stop by and hope you will be invigorated in your calling as a daughter of the King!

The King's Blooming Rose Magazine began in February 2005, when homeschooler Sarah Bryant published the first small issue for friends and family. Her desire was to encourage young ladies to seek the Lord and to challenge one another to love and good works (Hebrews 10:24). The Lord blessed this publication, and hundreds of families now receive KBR Magazine all over the world. 

In 2008, KBR Ministries expanded as Sarah wrote and published several books. We now carry many resources to encourage young ladies. In 2015 and 2016, KBR hosted the Joyful Daughters Conference for young ladies and their mothers.

It is our prayer that The King's Blooming Rose Magazine readers are challenged to grow in their personal walk with the Lord Jesus and love Him more daily (Deuteronomy 6:5). Through the fellowship provided throughout the pages of each issue of KBR, we desire to see young ladies walk in godliness, wisely invest the days of their youth, embrace their Biblical callings (Psalm 144:12, Titus 2), and serve the Lord Jesus Christ for His glory and honor.

In writing for KBR, it is Martha’s desire to share with young ladies how to find IN JESUS fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11).

Through her writings in KBR Magazine since 2007, she encourages young ladies to embrace their God-given callings and to delight in His will.
