When a Woman Meets Jesus: Finding the Love Every Woman Longs For

When a Woman Meets Jesus: Finding the Love Every Woman Longs For

by Dorothy Valcarcel




In a world of high expectations, it's easy for women to feel unworthy. But there is someone who loves women just as they are: Jesus.

Through engaging storytelling, Dorothy Valcarcel reveals the lives of eighteen New Testament women who knew Jesus personally. They were broken, needy, lonely, flawed, or empty, but Jesus cared about them and took time to meet their needs. With a narrative that takes readers from biblical times to the modern day, Valcarcel defines the kind of everlasting love for which every woman longs--the kind that lifts her up, holds her tight, and never lets her go.
