"Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene" (John 19:25).
This book is about women who came to the Cross, and continue daily to come to find purpose and meaning in life. My purpose for this book is to encourage ordinary women like myself.
- To search the Scriptures and see the dedication of godly women and the difference they made in the lives of their families and others in Bible times.
- To do your ordinary work "as unto the Lord," offering up yourself as a living daily sacrifice for Jesus.
- To be encouraged with the lives of men and women who lived their days with the passionate purpose to please the Lord.
Life is filled with many ordinary days and mountains of mundane work. There are spiritual battles for each woman of God.
Unless we meet Jesus at the Cross we are not ready to meet the challenges of life. The Cross of Jesus Christ is either our comfort or our condemnation. The Cross of Jesus Christ is our salvation. We must know the Lord of the Cross!!
The first part of each chapter is about a woman from the Bible. Then down-to-earth lessons to learn from her, and experiences from my life and the lives of others who have embraced the "Way of the Cross."
The story at the end of each chapter is about contemporary women whose lives are worthy to learn from and emulate.
