By Dorothy Valcárcel, Revell, softcover, 304 pages, $13.99.
Women of all ages have felt broken, empty, unfulfilled, insecure, isolated, rejected. It can seem as if there is no hope, no answer. But Jesus is that hope, that answer to healing, fulfillment and acceptance.
Dorothy Valcárcel recounts 18 Bible stories of women who met Jesus and experienced His life-changing touch. Jesus accepts and loves women even when others don’t. He knows what they need, and He will meet their needs. What Jesus did for the women in His day, He will do for women today.
Valcárcel’s writing style is personable and refreshing, and she also shares stories from her own life. Readers will feel hopeful as they relate to the stories in this book. “A Time for Reflection” sections with questions, Scriptures and additional readings will help with deeper study and life application.
