RiverBien is a platform for people to share artworks and articles that reflect biblical wisdom and their personal relationships with God.
Anyone who is thirsty can come to Him and drink, and the person is like a tree planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in season. 
As such, we believe Christians who delight in the Word of God and who meditates on his Word day and night can create artworks that are bien (good) and may encourage, inspire, or advise people. We hope via art for God to connect one another, learn His Word, and enjoy His love.

We hope you like our work and look forward to getting to know you!

Inspired by Bible verses:
Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. (John 7:37)
Blessed is the one … whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. (Psalm 1:2-3)

Hi I’m Rosemarie! 

I just got married and moved to California and currently working as a QA engineer in Silicon Valley. 

In my free time, I love crafting, scrapbooking and bible journaling. Since I’m not very good at doodling, hand lettering God’s words has drew me in!

 My heart is to share and encourage the world with words in the Bible as His words remain the same yesterday, and today and FOREVER!
