Challenges that mothers face day in and day out are not unique to this time, and modern-day moms have much wisdom to gain from true examples recorded in Scripture. In Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today, readers meet ordinary women of their day who, by God’s incomparable grace, were used for extraordinary purposes. Readers will journey through the lives of such mothers— like Eve, Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Salome, Mary, and others. Exploring heart issues like fear, discontentment, grief, and gratitude, readers will discover solutions through biblical models of prayer, sacrifice, and faithfulness. Each chapter ends with personal application and prayer. Beautifully designed, this book makes the perfect gift for a mother on any occasion.

I love to study the women of the Bible, because as women, we relate to women a little easier than we do men.
One of my favorite studies from Kathi's book was about Sarah: Mother of Nations.
Because of Sarah's impatience, she took matters into her own hands, therefore causing a chain reaction that would ripple in the ocean of time for all eternity.
WOW! That's a big chunk to chew on!
Through this study, God reminded me:
- It is HIS promise, so HE will bring it to fulfillment in HIS timing! (A hard one for me- I am NOT a patient person!)
- My decisions will effect the generation to come. My kids and grandkids and so on and so on!
- Allowing my own plan to get in the way of HIS will can cause sin and trouble!
This study would make an awesome MOPS bible study!
I will share this with other moms in my life. Not only great for moms though, any woman can relate to these woman!
