Meet the surprising women in Jesus's family tree as they journey through impossible circumstances and discover that quality of life is not determined by the size of our problems but by the size of our God.
You dust your furniture and vacuum before inviting people into your home because you don't want them to see the dirt and imperfections. But Jesus doesn't hide the infamy in his family tree. What's more surprising than a holy God highlighting these women is how he rescued and blessed each one—and how he wants to bless you.
You will relate to Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary as they face failure, loss, betrayal, and a murderous hunt. You will discover God's care for ordinary women and how he uses human weakness and failure as an opportunity to reveal his strength and grace. You will also record God's faithfulness in your own journey of faith and see how everyday women who walk with Christ have meaningful stories worth telling.
Thought-provoking questions and insights will reveal how to apply faith when walking through grief, selecting a mate, facing rejection and temptation, and forgiving oneself and one's enemies. Finally, you'll learn faith in a big God is life's only unshakable foundation.Find additional resources for group studies at Debbie Wilson's web site.
