Overview

After telling Mary that she would be a virgin who gives birth to God’s son, the angel Gabriel reports that Mary’s older relative Elizabeth is also pregnant miraculously. The Bible tells us that Mary immediately goes to visit her cousin. We can only speculate as to why Mary did not stay home with her own mother but it could be because Mary knew she needed to talk to another woman who could relate to and understand her situation—she needed a spiritual mother.

Not every young woman has a Christian or loving mom. Many young women today find themselves spiritually alone as the only Christian in their family or circle of friends. Other times, our mobile society separates mothers and daughters by distance. Or women find themselves dealing with issues Mom can’t always relate to and these daughters need a Christian woman to share advice and give motherly guidance.

Face-to-Face with Elizabeth and Mary studies the reciprocal benefits and joys of one generation investing in the next.
