Overview

The women of the Bible have been inspiring females for ages. Now these inspirational reflections have been collected in one place with this devotional. This beautifully packaged volume features twelve poignant stories for each month and a year's worth of daily reflections. You will relate to how other women deal with life in relation to biblical women through stories, such as:

  • Betty, who finds the wisdom she needs from Martha when she feels too busy and overwhelmed with life to take the time to talk with Jesus
  • Susan, who lost her husband to colon cancer, turns to the example of Elizabeth by sharing in the joy of others who recover from the same type of cancer, instead of harboring resentment

Love, motherhood, sadness, joy, grief-everything is explored by these contributors. The power of these biblical women will inspire you to call upon God's love, help, and grace whenever needed.

I found out about this book by chance on a Nook blog as it was free today and I am VERY pleased! It is a nice devotional book with a short story for each day of the year (not made for any specific year so there was not a Feb. 29 story) I found them to be unique and relevant stories that I could relate to as a 30 yr old christian, wife, & mother. I gave 4 stars only because this is normally not free yet each story seemed to be about the same length as the free "Daily Bread" devotional series, and had much less recommended scriptures verses (only 1-2 verses per day). Still I like it alot and will be keeping an eye out @ bookstores for the original version as it would make a thoughtful yet practical gift for my female christian friends & family members. Would recommend for ages 16 +.

This is my daily devotion. There is a verse from the bible usually featuring oneof the Women of the Bible and a real life experience is related in a couple of paragraphs by someone. Usually ends with a thought to carry with you during the day. I often open my bible and read the referenced chapter or two.
