Publisher's Description

In a world of high expectations, it's easy for women to feel unworthy. But there is someone who loves women just as they are: Jesus.

Through engaging storytelling, Dorothy Valcarcel reveals the lives of eighteen New Testament women who knew Jesus personally. They were broken, needy, lonely, flawed, or empty, but Jesus cared about them and took time to meet their needs. With a narrative that takes readers from biblical times to the modern day, Valcarcel defines the kind of everlasting love for which every woman longs--the kind that lifts her up, holds her tight, and never lets her go.

Dorothy Valcárcel's Story: From a tragic accident to a touching book

Told by Dorothy Valcárcel:

It was Thursday, August 28, around 6:00 p.m.,: my husband Jim and I were returning home from a business trip in California. We were on the western outskirts of Phoenix, Arizona when the unthinkable happened. A desperate young man, wishing to kill himself, intentionally sat in his car in the middle of the freeway and, without warning, drove his car as fast as it would go into oncoming traffic - into the car we were driving.

The police and investigators told us later the force of the impact was over 145 miles per hour. We were struck head-on. The initial impact killed the young man instantly and left me and my husband fighting for our lives in a wreckage of such twisted metal that at first the police couldn't even tell what kind of car we were in. As one policeman said to a local newspaper reporter, "It was the most violent wreck Id ever seen."

Both Jim and I sustained over 35 broken bones, and many of our bones were shattered and crushed in bits and pieces. For days our lives hung in the balance. However, day by day, with too many surgeries and treatments to mention, the excellent medical care and the powerful prayers of people around the world, put us in a position where our family and friends could breathe easier, finally believing we had a chance to survive.

The day after I was moved out of Intensive Care and taken off the ventilator, Sister Laurana, a tall elderly woman who worked at the hospital, walked into my room and told me, "I was in the emergency room the night they brought you in. We never thought you would live. You lost so much blood and had so many broken bones." Then a huge smile came over her face and she took my broken, crushed and casted left hand in hers. "But you did live. You know Dorothy, someday you will be doing something and it will hit you, 'My life was spared for this.'"

We spent 4 months in the hospital and another 2 years learning to move and walk again. Despite that, I faced night after night not being able to sleep. I'd wake up for hours each and every night - for years. One night, in utter desperation and misery, I screamed out to God, "Isn't the pain in all these fractured bones enough for one girl? Now, I can't sleep." I wasn't just miserable, I was angry.

In the midst of my sleepless pain and agony that night, I decided to make use of my time and read the gospel of John. As I read, something special grabbed my attention: the way Jesus interacted with women. I was intrigued and began to search the Scriptures and found more instances of the ways Jesus touched women's lives. Before long, the rough draft for the book began, and six years later, When A Woman Meets Jesus is now being published.

From this experience, I can say that God is the One I trust, for He knows what is best for each one of us - hanging onto God's hand is the only way to walk, especially when you can't see what's ahead! And from the wreckage of unanticipated and capricious events in our lives, a garden will grow and bloom from the seeds of love He has planted.

I thank you, Lord God, for all my pains; if it please you, Lord, increase them a hundredfold and I shall thankfully accept whatever You give, not sparing me; for in the fulfillment of Your will I find my greatest solace.
St. Francis of Assisi (1182 - 1226)

Publisher Description

Meet the man who can fulfill your deepest needs.

Though they seem worlds apart from us, the women of New Testament times had similar heartaches and desires. They too were ambitious, worried, broken, lonely, insecure, and unfulfilled. They may have wondered how some unusual man from Galilee could possibly understand their needs. And then they met him.

When a Woman Meets Jesus recounts eighteen powerful stories of women who were transformed by the perfect, unconditional love of the Savior. Rather than trivializing their problems or ignoring women, Jesus responded to their deepest needs. He reminded them of their value and transformed their past, present, and future.

Jesus brought new life to the women he encountered face-to-face, and he will do the same for you. Let this engaging book introduce you to the man who loves you like no other.

    Our women's ministry is studying this book & attendance has grown from 15 to 35 because of the book. A different lady teaches each chapter so the different situations are almost true when explained by someone who has felt that way. Everyone can relate to a chapter or two.

    I questioned God why there wasn't more on his love for women in the Bible. And I won the book "Women in the Bible". His answer. 18 women who walked the earth with Jesus right along with his disciples clear to his resurrection.

    Broken, flawed, empty, rejected and so many characteristics these women possessed until they met Jesus. You can find yourself in more than one of these women - and they were not perfect. These are all women of the New Testament.

    When Jesus meets women, he doesn't condemn, put down or demean them in any way. He loves them where they are with all their flaws and offers them hope. He believes in them and gives them someone to believe in.

    I highly recommend this book as a devotional.
