Welcome readers! I have some exciting news. A few weeks ago, I launched my first ebook, “Parenting In The Light: Mothers of The Bible Series.” This book covers 8 moms – and moms-to-be – in the Bible and shares their struggles and accomplishments. Learn about:
- Rahab and why she is noted in the “Bible Hall of Fame” in Acts 11.
- Moses’ mother and why her sacrifice helped shaped one of the most important Biblical figures.
- Whether or not Eve, the first woman, was a good woman.
- The only female leader of Old Testament Israel.
“Parenting in the Light” is my first book in my “Mothers of the Bible” series. Next, I’ll be exploring more New and Old Testament mothers including:
- Leah & Rachel
- a few with no names
- and even a bad one or two!
Why I’m Writing About Mothers of The Bible
Most of my life, from being raised as a Catholic, to seeking out and finding Jesus for myself, there has been a focus on the men in the Bible, with the exception of being taught a lot about Mary in Catholic school. This is well and good. Most of the people in the Bible are men and we really need to understand them to get a glimpse of Who God is.
However, as I’ve been attending a women’s Bible study these last few years, and even small mixed groups before that, the people who stand out to me are the mothers. The Bible is full of moms, many who have done their best to shepherd their children and raise them with values. (However, there are some who are truly bad, and we should study them, too, for pitfalls to avoid as a parent.)
These women have encouraged me in my journey. While I’ve never actually thought that much about biblical mothers other than Mary, their stories inspire courage and fortitude in me. They help me live God’s purpose for me as a parent and help me raise my children in the way that God wants me to raise them.
How These Moms Can Help You
The stories of these women also help me when:
- I feel like God isn’t answering my prayers.
- I have NO idea what to do next.
- I’m uncertain what to teach them.
- I feel like my past is a ball and chain that sinks my ability to be a good mother.
Sound familiar? Then my book is for you!
The moms and future moms in my ebook have dealt with these issues and figured it out – the good ones, anyway. Not every mom made a great choice.
