Get ready You are taking a tour into the lives of some very special women of God. Each has worth "far more than rubies." These are true, very personal stories of their unique perspectives on God's love and their faith in His justice and power. They chose to share their stories so that through their struggles, others might find a faith and comfort that then brings the courage to go forward. They would say amen to Paul's exhortation to the Corinthian brethren: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows" (II Cor. 1:3-5 NIV).
