About Woman of Worth
These days women are so busy about so many things that it s easy to lose sight of one's being in the midst of one's doing. Any woman wondering about her worth to her family, to her colleagues, to herself, and to God will find much to rejoice in here. Each chapter takes a verse or two from Proverbs 31 and offers a personal story, a reflection on the verse, a portrait of a woman saint who exemplifies the verse, some questions designed for discussion or contemplation, and a prayer. Read it from beginning to end or dip in here or there as a verse strikes you there s no wrong way to read this book! The clear, affirming message is that God loves you and you ARE a woman of worth, no matter where you find yourself in life.
