Does a modern woman need wealth to be successful? Beauty and fame? A certain number of Twitter followers? Patton believes that women of faith need wiser, worthier goals! Turning to stories in Scripture, she invites you to find inspiration in Deborah's leadership, Esther's courage, Miriam's joy, Lydia's business acumen, and more. 160 pages, softcover from Faithwords.
The second book in a new series that brings the experiences of favorite Bible characters to challenges of contemporary life.
Contemporary "success" is often defined in financial terms or by number of Twitter followers. But for women of faith, success is so much more. And it turns out the timeless qualities of success are exemplified by women on the pages of their favorite book, the Bible. Deborah's model leadership is just as relevant today as it was in the age of the Hebrew judges. Esther's courage to stand up for a cause, Miriam's joyful support of others, Priscilla's exemplary partnership skill, Lydia's business acumen, and other characteristics of women in the Bible are embodied in lively storytelling. Busy Christian women--often working and raising a family--crave examples of success. Here are distilled principles they can use to succeed in today's noisy culture. The lessons of these icons of the faith apply, even in the age of Facebook and Instagram.
