Inspiration for Hard Times from the Lives of Ten Women
Be uplifted and encouraged by the stories of ten women—some from the pages of history and some contemporary women—who overcame the great challenges they experienced in their families, marriages, relationships, or societies. We can find encouragement in the lives of those who understand suffering and have experienced upheaval yet persevered and endured through their faith in Christ.
