Lessons from 30 amazing Women of the Bible

Lessons from 30 amazing Women of the Bible

This week (October 3rd to be exact) was my birthday and- it wasn't just any birthday- it was my 30th! Also, although I didn't actually make it public until late November, this month will mark a year since I started this blog with a view to:

  • Raise the profile of the contributions of the women of the Bible and how the lessons contained in these can be practically applied in our modern spiritual walks
  • Empower Christian women to fully embrace their unique identities and purpose in Christ, free of the stereotypes and traditions that can "so easily best" us

To celebrate, I am going to share my top 30 women of the Bible along with what they taught me either about Christian womanhood/femininity or life in general. So, in alphabetical order, here goes!

Lessons from the Queen of Sheba on Forming Positive Relationships

Lessons from the Queen of Sheba on Forming Positive Relationships

The Queen of Sheba, otherwise known as Makeda, makes her debut in the Bible in 1st Kings 10:1-13. The story of her visit to King Solomon in Jerusalem, from her ancient Ethiopian Kingdom, is then documented again in 2nd Chronicles 9:1-12. A highly successful monarch in her own right, there is much insight and wisdom to be gained from this great woman of the Bible regarding how to go about building positive relationships.
