Twelve Extraordinary Women: Guest Post - Reading List

Twelve Extraordinary Women: Guest Post

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

For me personally, the best part of blogging, is meeting other people out there that share interests. You get to "meet" people you would never really ever even know existed and you have the chance to see the world through their eyes, which is always enlightening.

So with that in mind, a new blogging friend of mine has graciously decided to share her thoughts on a book she is reading. The following book review/discussion is from Jacquie from Blessings in Homemaking. I hope you enjoy hearing from her.


I am just finishing up this book and I will give it five stars! The book discusses twelve prominent women in the Bible and their lives. The author did such an amazing job analyzing each woman and pointing out the great faith each one had! 

My favorite by far was the story of Eve. Your heart will be warmed by this one! I even had to read the story of Eve to my husband! I can't even begin to imagine how beautiful Eve was. She was physically perfect, being the first woman molded from God's very own hands and she was the first to be pure of heart. Can you imagine not only beautiful but genuinely sweet and innocent?! Even though that purity was short lived I still have to wonder what the first humans were like! I really love how the author interprets Adam's love for Eve. It is great coming from a man's perspective. What a love story!

You will also find a lot of encouragement as a mother, wife and woman living in a fallen world. This book has my recommendation!
