God’s Mighty Women

I began this thread shortly after the vote to accept women as Bishops in the Church of England fell through. I have 2 daughters, what impression of God’s love and acceptance  do I want them to grow up with? Many of the children’s Bibles ignore the stories relating to women – we hear all about God’s Mighty (and not so mighty) Men, but the women are hidden from view. There is much about Abraham, Noah, David,  but even Ruth and Esther are often hidden away. So I began my own exploration of women in the Bible and have found many of them. Here I hope to introduce you to them (or remind you of them), as you seek to live your lives as Mighty Women of God.

Mary the careless parent

The grief stricken mother
