DAY 9 – THE MOTHER AND DAUGHTER DUO (Ruth 1-4)

When I wrote down all the names of the women we will study and learn from, I didn’t take note that the two women with books of their own in the Bible were back to back till I had to write out my drafts. I believe God has something interesting for us. Ruth is aContinue reading “DAY 9 – THE MOTHER AND DAUGHTER DUO (Ruth 1-4)”

DAY 8: THE JEWISH QUEEN OF A PERSIAN KING (Esther 1-10)

Yeey!!! Look who we have here. QUEEN ESTHER. I haven’t met any young girl yet who didn’t want to be like Esther. In fact, I know many ladies who were named Esther simply after the Biblical character. I love Esther. I just love her. The book of Esther is one book I read completely atContinue reading “DAY 8: THE JEWISH QUEEN OF A PERSIAN KING (Esther 1-10)”

DAY 7 – THE WOMEN BEHIND THE SCENE (Judges 13:2-14, Exodus 4:24-26)

There are so many women who work behind the scene in scriptures. While they are not main characters or have books in their name like Esther and Ruth, the part they played were too important not to mention. That’s why we have them mentioned in scriptures. These women, let me put it in modern dayContinue reading “DAY 7 – THE WOMEN BEHIND THE SCENE (Judges 13:2-14, Exodus 4:24-26)”

DAY 6 – THE HEBREW WOMEN IN EGYPT (Exodus 1:17-20, 2:1-10)

The women we are studying about today played their various roles beautifully in fulfilling God’s future plan to rescue the Israelites from Egypt. First are the Hebrew Midwives – Shiphrah and Puah. We all know their story. The midwives who didn’t follow the King’s instruction to kill the Hebrew male children as soon as theyContinue reading “DAY 6 – THE HEBREW WOMEN IN EGYPT (Exodus 1:17-20, 2:1-10)”

DAY 5 – THE BRAVE PRINCESS/AUNT, JEHOSHEBA (2 Kings 11:1-3, 2 Chronicles 22:10-12)

I don’t remember reading about Jehosheba ever. I may have but I never paid attention. As I read about her for this challenge, I was wowed at what a woman she was indeed. Even though she wasn’t talked about so much and is just mentioned within two verses of the scripture, she played a majorContinue reading “DAY 5 – THE BRAVE PRINCESS/AUNT, JEHOSHEBA (2 Kings 11:1-3, 2 Chronicles 22:10-12)”

DAY 4 – THE PROPHETESS AND JUDGE, DEBORAH (Judges 4 & 5)

As some of you know, my sister is Deborah and so the story of Deborah shouldn’t be new to me right? Ah Ahn! No. I have heard about Deborah being a judge in Israel. However, I had never taken my time to intentionally read up and study about her. Few months ago as I studiedContinue reading “DAY 4 – THE PROPHETESS AND JUDGE, DEBORAH (Judges 4 & 5)”

DAY 3 – SOMETHING ABOUT MARY (Luke 1:26-38)

Mary is a character in the Bible that we all knew about before we knew so much about the scriptures. This is because you must have payed a role in the Nativity or you heard about her during Easter or Christmas. However, there is so much to Mary than just being the mother of ourContinue reading “DAY 3 – SOMETHING ABOUT MARY (Luke 1:26-38)”

DAY 2 – THE WOMAN RAHAB (Joshua 2)

Rahab is an unlikely bible character any woman would naturally look to to learn from. Many believers see her from a place of promiscuity but I see her from a place of bravery. Who would take a risk like she did without batting an eyelid? The present day believer would have ran a detailed riskContinue reading “DAY 2 – THE WOMAN RAHAB (Joshua 2)”
