Journeys of Faithfulness was written by Sarah Clarkson, author of Read for the Heart: Whole Books for Wholehearted Families. This wonderful book was created to be a bible study for young women to learn about the women of the Bible who have journeyed through faith before them. This study goes deeper to show strong the strong relationships with Christ, sharing the stories of the following women: Mary and Martha, Ruth, Esther and Mary, Mother of Jesus.
The stories in Journeys of Faithfulness are thought provoking, as well as interesting. Sarah Clarkson has a way with words that captivates the reader. She draws the reader into the stories, leaving them wanting to learn more about the woman in the story, as well as their relationship with God.
My daughter is nine and I chose not to use this book with her at this time, but instead I found myself reading through and enjoying the stories inside. Journeys of Faithfulness is a book I have longed to read for quite sometime but was unaware existed. It is a storybook, a devotional, a bible study – all in one.
After reading through this amazingly written book myself and working through the bible study, I have decided that I will begin using it as a devotional and bible study for my daughter very soon. We will work through it together and use it to bond. It will also (hopefully) bring her closer in her relationship with God. I look forward to sharing with her the stories of Mary and Martha, Ruth, the beautiful Esther, and Mary, Mother of Jesus.

I just finished watching A Night With The King, the story of Esther, Queen of Persia and was immediately reminded of this post I have been meaning to write. (BTW, that was a REALLY GOOD movie!)
I am currently on a quest to fill my heart and my mind with knowledge of the Heavenly Father. I have a thirst that I am in need of filling, to learn so much about Him and what He wants for my life and that of my children and family.
Recently, I read Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado and I plan to re-read it again in the future, taking more time to study each chapter as Lucado meant it to be read. I’m also anxiously awaiting my recently gifted (won) copy of Feminine Appeal from Jasmine at Far Above Rubies (see sidebar for link to this wonderful site!) Today I purchased (online) a copy of Passionate Housewives Desperate for God and I can hardly wait to dive into to it when it arrives. I’ve ordered several books for the kids also, that we will be working on together.
I feel God pushing me to learn all I can about Him and His wants for me. I want to learn to be the Proverbs 31 woman He wishes for me to be. I want to teach my daughters and my son to be all God wishes for them to be, to have patience and love beyond normal expectations with God leading their life. I am so very excited to be following His loving guidance onto this path that He’s leading me upon. I can’t wait to see how it changes and improves our lives.
