Rowe’s body of work is chock-full of catch phrases and sayings that were collected from all sources of media, whether faith-bound or otherwise. Not all of her -isms are meant to be humorous, but you can certainly imagine her saying this phrase with a wry grin. Didactic in nature, this work is perhaps more subdued than others but undoubtedly no less enthusiastic regarding her particular practice of Christianity.
