Gathers together six women from scripture and history whose lives invite us to move more deeply into our own through reflection and prayer.
The author of the groundbreaking Sacred Journeys returns with a book to treasure and to share with the women in your life. Jan Richardson, a gifted author, poet, and artist, believes it is essential for women to listen to one another and to bring the fullness of their lives, with all their wonders and messiness, into their life of prayer. Drawing from the often hidden wellsprings of women’s wisdom in Jewish and Christian history, this devotional book highlights six women from around the world and across the centuries: Eve, St. Brigid of Kildare, the Desert Mothers, Hildegard of Bingen, Harriet Powers, and the woman of the Song of Solomon. As she explores the themes their lives offer, Richardson invites us to enter the mysteries that lie at the heart of who we are.
