Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today
I'm working my way through the book Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today by Kathi Macias. The author takes us through the tribulations of several Biblical mothers and shares with us how God loved and guided them into triumph.
I have gleamed wonderful godly truths through this book. From Sarah, the wife of Abraham, God showed me how we can reap the consequences of rushing ahead of God's will and timing. Our choices not only affect ourselves but can affect our children and others for years to come. But, even with our mistakes God still keeps His promises to us.
Mathias provides excellent insight into the mothers she has chosen for her book. She encourages you to dig deeper into your own understanding by reading your Bible along with her book. She also provides in depth questions about each character for you to ponder and journal about, which makes her book a great resource for discussion groups as well. It's a timely and needed read for any mother.
