An Interview with Salina Gibson on Hannah

Today's interview comes from Salina Gibson of where she shares her thoughts and reflections through devotionals, tackling subjects such as infertility as well as many others. Bearing this in mind, Salina has a powerful and personal affinity for Hannah (who is her favourite woman of the Bible). Read on as she shares this as well as what we, as modern women, can learn from her. 

Who is your favourite woman of the Bible and why? What would you say that modern women can learn from her?

My favourite woman of the Bible is Hannah. After struggling for years with infertility, Hannah’s pain of wanting her own children resonates deeply within me. I know what it’s like to want something so badly that prayers could leave you weeping tears of anguish. Today’s woman can learn much from Hannah. She is an example of how God not only hears our fervent prayers, but also answers them. She teaches us to never stop asking Him for something, and to follow through on our promises to Him.

Please finish the sentence: I am a Christian woman who is...

I am a Christian woman who is still learning every day how to better follow Christ. I strive to do His will and, even though I constantly fail, I still pick myself back up and press onward. I want to be the light mentioned in Matthew 5:14-16 so that when people see me they can’t help but also see Him, and praise Him because of it. 


Please finish the sentence: I am a Christian woman who is not...

I am a Christian woman who is not afraid to share the gospel, praise His name, or let others know what He has done for me. 

Any final words of encouragement?

I know what it’s like to feel completely hopeless, to believe you are all alone, and that no one understands. Only Christ can fill those empty places in our hearts, and only He can understand what we are going through. Choosing a relationship with Him was the best decision of my life.
