The classic guide to biblical women who shaped Israel and the Church . . . and their messages and lessons for women today.
More than just a faddish look at a few bad girls from the Bible, this is the most widely used and best-selling study of Bible women-good and bad.
Drawing on the life, character, and experiences of more than thirty women of the Bible, the author combines solid biblical knowledge, interesting historical background, and human warmth to make these women live and speak to women today.
While the world has changed dramatically since these women lived, human nature and the pressures of female life have not. Imagination and insight add perception to these factual accounts taken directly from Scripture. Thoughtful and sympathetic questions for discussion at the end of each chapter allow today’s women to personally apply the lessons of the women God has chosen to preserve in Scripture.Captivating reading for personal insight. Readily adaptable to any class or study group setting. A superlative book for every woman who longs to achieve all that God has planned for her.

Abortion continues to be a hot topic in politics, women’s rights, and medical practice. But for the eight to ten million American Christian women who have had one, abortion is a spiritual issue as well, raising questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss.
God’s love is not a casualty of abortion. Abortion raises questions of life and death, heaven and hell, grief and loss. You may be asking: Does God hate me? Can I be forgiven? Is it really possible to just start over with God?
Kim Ketola asked these questions as well. In Cradle My Heart, she lays out a compassionate path toward spiritual healing. You will learn how to:
* Face yourself and face God
* Forgive and be forgiven
* Repent and accept God’s love
* Grieve and find an end to sorrow
With an understanding and empathetic voice, Kim Ketola exposes the hurt in your heart, reveals the healing in God’s heart, and brings the two together to create a whole heart where restoration–and celebration–are possible.
