Miriam Rockness

Miriam Huffman Rockness is a graduate of Wheaton College. She lived in Lake Wales, Florida where her husband, Dave Rockness, pastored the First Presbyterian Church for thirty-seven years and they raised their three children. Her love for Scripture and devotion to family informed her role in ministry: teaching community Bible studies and Family Living Seminars as well as writing a trilogy on home and family. Her admiration for the almost forgotten, Lilias Trotter, fueled her research for a biography, A Passion for the Impossible: The Life of Lilias Trotter, the companion book, A Blossom in the Desert: Reflections of Faith in the Art and Writings of Lilias Trotter and Images of Faith: Reflections Inspired by Lilias Trotter. She now lives in Mr. Dora, Florida where—with the support and partnership of the Lilias Trotter Legacy Board (committed in the mission “to let Lilias continue to speak”) —she is devoted to presenting the life and legacy of Lilias Trotter through film (Many Beautiful Things), Lilias-related publications, and social media.
