It’s not easy to be a Christian woman—especially today. We have wider possibilities than our mothers had. We are offered freedoms our mothers never knew. And we can make choices that were not options for women in other times.
Life is full of choices. We have to make them, but how do we make them well? We must turn to the Word of God for help in wise decision-making. There we can learn by precept and by example. In the pages that follow, we will look at two biblical women who had to wrestle with problems that are sometimes different from our own, yet sometimes surprisingly similar to what we face. And as we watch these real women and the choices they made, we will find principles to help clarify the answers we seek.
