    Educational, Entertaining, Inspiring

    Sharon Jaynes gives a beautiful color commentary as she so methodically, creatively, diligently, and responsibly teaches us the significance of women as written in the Word of God. Sharon doesn't add to or take away from the Word. She simply opens it up for our minds to see and understand what Jesus was showing us all along. I was extremely blessed to see the patterns in each of these women's lives ... To now see, relate, and understand what they ( and what I) am "freed from" and "freed to." This is a wonderful book and easy to read. I looked forward to reading and studying it. It was as if I was the woman Jesus was encountering. Awesome. Come with fresh eyes and willing heart. You will not be wasting your time reading this one.
