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!

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
