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.

I questioned God why there wasn't more on his love for women in the Bible. And I won the book "Women in the Bible". His answer. 18 women who walked the earth with Jesus right along with his disciples clear to his resurrection. Broken, flawed, empty, rejected and so many characteristics these women possessed until they met Jesus. You can find yourself in more than one of these women - and they were not perfect. These are all women of the New Testament. When Jesus meets women, he doesn't condemn, put down or demean them in any way. He loves them where they are with all their flaws and offers them hope. He believes in them and gives them someone to believe in. I highly recommend this book as a devotional.

Dorothy's book is such a comfort and inspiration, letting us know that Jesus held (and holds) women in esteem, recognizing our worth. Every woman who reads this can relate to one, if not many more, of the stories presented in this book. In a world where women are often thought of a second-class citizens, this book is a refreshing reminder of where we really stand with God. I urge you to keep a copy by your bed and revel in its warmth.
