    AWESOME TIMES TWO

    Many overlook the struggle of Mary the mother of our Lord. Dr. Weems makes us aware of the seemingly scandalous conditions under which Jesus was born. However, she shows us that Mary did not have to bear these burdens alone.

    Awesome!

    I have only finished a few chapters, and my life has been touched. Through the life of Mary, Dr. Weems breaks it down-uses Biblical teaching and real-life applications to show us how to become the virtuous women were are meant to be.
