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!

'Every mother needs a role model, and thanks to gifted author Kathi Macias, we may become intimately acquainted with quite a few! With refreshing relevancy and breathtaking honesty, she demonstrates how mothers of the Bible speak to mothers today. While Macias reveals the struggles and sacrifices of motherhood, her book exudes encouragement, inspiration, and practicality. These remarkable, yet real, "Bible women" followed and experienced a faithful God in raising their children. They challenge us to become not just better mothers, but devoted disciples, leading our children on godly paths, straight to the heart of Christ. Read this book, and don't miss the incredible opportunity to become a model mother, yourself!

In this book, perfect for individual devotion or group study, the author combines her personal, conversational style with thoroughly researched information to provide stunning portraits of biblical moms. The emphasis is on what these women can teach us today. Each chapter concludes with a "Something to Think About" section of questions and space to journal, as well as a prayer. Readers also enjoy quotes about motherhood from a wide spectrum of people, historical and contemporary, famous and not.

Who's included? Rather than just listing names or chapters, the author actually includes a descriptive paragraph with each listing on the Contents page. I think it's fabulous. Right off the bat, from the very first pages, she makes the stories of these ancient women relevant to us centuries - even millenia later. I can't share all of this with you, but I can give you an example.

"Rizpah: Grief-Stricken yet Faithful -- Can there be anything more painful to a parent than the death of a child? In addition to the agony, losing a child to death seems to be out of the natural order. Yet, from the beginning, mothers have endured this tragedy, which can result in additional problems: divorce, financial difficulties, and even a loss of faith in God. Yet God sees and cares.

Format: Hardcover
In her latest book, Mothers of the Bible Speak to Mothers of Today, award winning author Kathi Macias demonstrates her depth as author, speaker and bible teacher. Kathi selects 15 women from the Bible, from Old and New testaments, obscure and renowned, and makes their stories come alive through practical application. The reader will find that Kathi has the special talent that makes the lives and emotions of ancient moms relevant to post-modern American culture.

Each of the 15 women who are selected as role models are made real through in-depth, inductive Bible study as well as the author's feminine insight. Like Kathi's other books, this work is refreshingly personal. Still Kathi finds a way to press deeper by cross referencing scripture, explaining cultural influences, and spotlighting the text's linguistic background. She fleshes out the personal side of God's redemptive work as illustrated through her subjects.

For example, in the first chapter, Kathi examines the maternal side of Eve, whose name means: Life Giver. According to the author, Eve must have wrestled deeply with being the "first" at many things. Without role model or mentor, she was the first to have a husband, endure and fall in temptation, lose a son to violent crime and then lose a second to the consequences of his crime. Yet, through it all, God proved faithful to her name, and promise He had given her. Eve bore another son, Seth, through whom Jesus would eventually become the redemption of all mankind, the Eternal Life Giver.

Kathi brings her readers face to face with timeless issues which impose themselves upon today's moms. Have you ever watched a mother play favorites with her children, and the ensuing chaos within a family.
