Florence Rosalind Bell-Smith (Married name: Rosalind Goforth) (6 May 1864-31 May 1942) was a Presbyterian missionary, and authoress. Rosalind was born near Kensington Gardens, London, England. When she was three years old she moved with her parents to Montreal, Canada.
Her father, John Bell-Smith, was an artist, and Rosalind also intended to go into art. She graduated from the Toronto School of Art in May 1885, and began preparing to return to London that autumn in order to complete her art studies. Something that never happened.
Instead, she married Jonathan Goforth on 25 October 1887 at Knox Presbyterian Church, Toronto, Canada, and together they served God in Manchuria and China.
They had eleven children, five of which died as babies or very young children. Rosalind died in Toronto, Canada, and is buried alongside her husband at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto.

This vintage book is the testimony of Rosalind Goforth. Along with her husband, Jonathan, as missionaries to China in the late 1800s to early 1900s, their lives were often in peril, or at least in strange or unreliable predicaments. God was Rosalind's constant companion, through her faithful prayers. "...the wonder is not that God can answer prayer, but that he does, when we so imperfectly meet the conditions clearly laid down in his Word." Set up similarly to a diary, this book chronicles instances of God's own touch and healing power in the Goforth's ministry. Many times throughout the years, Rosalind found that it was only when she fully trusted and relied on God's goodness that the unimaginable feat that they so badly needed would come to pass. "The slogan of this glorious life in Christ is just 'Let go and let God'." I personally think this profound little book packs a punch and shares a big message. It reminds all Christians of the glory and power God has in our lives, if we let Him. "How I Know God Answers Prayer" is a shining jewel in the midst of other books.
