What People are Saying About This
“‘For such a time as this.’ This beautiful verse in the Old Testament Book of Esther came to mind immediately as I was reading Donna Marie's latest book. This is what women need right now during these very troubled, confusing, and divided times. Women need to know first and foremost who they are in Christ. And then how to pray for guidance. Donna-Marie's knowledge in both areas fills these pages which will no doubt fill the hearts of women everywhere; women longing for deeper relationships with friends, family, and especially the Lord.” –Teresa Tomeo, Syndicated Catholic Talk Show Host of Catholic Connection and The Catholic View for Women
