A native of Washington State, Beneth earned the bachelor of arts degree in speech interpretation from Bob Jones University, was then awarded a graduate assistantship in speech and completed the master of arts degree. She has also studied at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill.
Beneth has directed and appeared often in the well-known Vespers programs at BJU as well as on university-produced, nationally distributed radio programs. In addition to directing productions for the BJU Classic Players, she has played a number of leading roles—including Roxane in Cyrano de Bergerac, Katherine in The Taming of the Shrew, Ophelia in Hamlet, Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, and Lady Macbeth in Macbeth. She has been featured in several Christian films produced by Unusual Films, the University's motion-picture unit. Her latest role was in Sheffey, the award-winning film about Robert Sayers Sheffey, a circuit-riding preacher.
The courtship that later led to her marriage to Dr. Bob Jones III, now chancellor of Bob Jones
University, began when Beneth portrayed Roxane and he played Christian in Cyrano.
They named their daughter Roxane. The Joneses also have two sons—Bob IV and Stephen—and six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Beneth wrote and recorded the feature Sunshine on the Soapsuds for the popular radio program by the same name. Many of these articles have been compiled into three books, Sunshine on the Soapsuds, More Sunshine on the Soapsuds and Lights on Main Street.
She has also written In the Best Possible Light, a handbook on Christian loveliness; Ribbing Him Rightly!, a book on Christian wifehood; Words Fitly Spoken, a booklet for public speaking; The Wilderness Within, which addresses a woman's testings in emotions and attitudes; and Mount Up on Wounded Wings, a book for Christian women with hurtful home backgrounds.
She has also co-authored With Heart and Hand, a manual for women in God's service, and her video series, Patterns for the Christian Woman.
Much more important and treasured to Beneth than any of the “dones” noted above is God’s grace in allowing and enabling her to be a wife, mother and grandmother and a friend to her Christian sisters throughout America and overseas. In each writing or speaking opportunity God gives her, Beneth’s desire is to “come alongside” Christian women with scriptural encouragement for their daily lives.
